Good cooking is only made easier with the advances in kitchen tech. GE and TrendHunters released the top 5 tech trends for 2016, and showcased how GE is leading the way.
Dual Purpose Prep
Appliances have to have more than one purpose. Why? Multi-tasking is the norm for Millennials (1982-1994), who work on an average of 3 screens, and Gen Z’s (1995-2009) have an average 8-second attention span. Tech that allows you to do more is leading designs.
Intuitive designs that easy connect the user to its functions, and look stylish enough to be part of the decor. Clean designs mean that they’re easier to use.
I love a good retro-inspired look – especially retro-kitchens. And we live in an era where almost any retro-inspired designs can be accessible, and still coordinate with modern decor.
The topic of health is constantly present. We care about our bodies and what goes into them. That’s why technology is bringing DIY health back into the home in an accessible way, such as kitchen herb gardens.
We all dream of the Jetson’s home, where all the pieces of technology work together to connect the home and the people who live in it. And technology is advancing closer, with biometric security systems, and ways to connect your home energy use to your phone.
GE’s Advanced Pharmaceutical Filtration
Surveys have shown that 2 in 10 Americans drinking water tested positive for pharmaceuticals, and 65% of people are concerned about the quality and safety of their drinking water. So GE has developed a filtration system that removes 15 different contaminants and at least 94% of the top 5 trace pharmaceuticals (ibuprofen, atenolol, fluoxetine, progesterone, trimethoprim).
And the best news, is that GE is now offering the Advanced Pharmaceutical Filtration systems across all its new refrigerators. Better water = better food.0
