Cooking has never been easier. There are now an incredible amount of accessories that will connect to an iPhone to help out people who love to cook — and here are some of our favorites.
Level up your homecooked meals from the comfort of your own home with these smart kitchen appliances that are app enabled.
COSORI Smart Electric Gooseneck Kettle
A delicious breakfast starts with a well-crafted cup of coffee or tea, and it’s never been easier to get your drinks ready with this smart kettle. It’s stylish, it’s a gooseneck kettle, and it comes with an app.
Connect the kettle to the VeSync app to control the kettle remotely. It comes with presets for coffee, tea, and even a baby formula mode, which is perfect for busy moms.
With the app, you can schedule when you want to start heating the water so it’s hot when you’re ready to use it, or hold a specific temperature so you don’t have to keep boiling the same water repeatedly.
To avoid burning delicate loose-leaf teas, you can set the temperature with precise temperature control. It’s stainless steel and has an auto shut-off and boil-dry protection feature.
Etekcity Food Nutrition Kitchen Scale
For cooks with specific diet goals, this crowd favorite has over 100,000 reviews on Amazon.
Download the VeSync app to start tracking nutrition metrics like daily calorie and sugar intake. Scan your food’s barcode to automatically add it to the app, so you can easily track its nutritional value.
If you hate dealing with converting measurements like ounces, grams, and more, you can change the scale’s units of measurements to easily get the amount you need for a recipe.
As if the $18.99 price tag isn’t a good enough deal for this smart scale, you can also sync your results to your Apple Health app. Keeping track of a healthy diet just got easier.
CHEF iQ Smart Pressure Cooker
If you’re a fan of one-pot meals, check out this smart pressure cooker that can replace a dumb instant pot with ease.
It comes with the Chef IQ app, so you can control and monitor your smart pressure cooker remotely. The app also has cooking tutorials for you to follow along if you love trying new recipes.
There’s a built-in scale that lets you easily measure ingredients and cook by weight, minimizing cleanup. It also has smart sensors that measure ingredients and tell you exactly how much liquid is needed to cook each meal.
For safety, this pressure cooker automatically releases steam at the end of pressure cooking. Make sure to read the instructions carefully, because with great pressure comes great responsibility. Buy it for $199.99 from CHEF iQ directly or get a deal for $173.91 on Amazon.
Anova Culinary Nano Sous Vide Cooker
Precision is the key word here for cooks who need their meat cooked just right. Nobody wants dry, chewy steaks in their life. We sure don’t.
This is app enabled, so you just select what type of food you’re cooking, and it will set the time and temperature needed to cook it perfectly. Take that eye round hunk of beef, toss it in a vacuum bag, toss that bag in 133F water for 24 hours, and what you get will be incredible.
Based on your preference, after the food is cooked, you can give it a quick pan sear for a crispy edge.
COSORI Pro II Smart Air Fryer
If you love home fried chicken but not the greasy kitchen aftermath, this is for you.
The beauty of an air fryer is you can fry foods with much less oil. This does just that, but much more. When paired with the VeSync app, you can control and monitor your air fryer remotely and get cooking status notifications.
It’s compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, so it can seamlessly blend in with your smart home set up. For example, while doing yard work outside, you can ask Alexa how many more minutes until the food is ready.
The app also comes with different presets and guided video recipes, so you can easily customize it to fit your taste. And, for easy clean up, it comes with detachable baskets that are dishwasher-safe and BPA-free.
Multo By CookingPal Smart Food Processor
If you are small on space but big on taste, this smart food processor may be just what you need.
While we’re not sure about the company’s claim of it being 15 appliances in one, this sets out to replace your blender, steamer, and stand mixer, not to mention yogurt maker and kneading machine.
This intriguing appliance blends and cooks at the same time. Emulsify hummus, steam dumplings, cook pasta, and more.
This smart food processor comes with its own tablet, and you can also download the CookingPal app for their extensive recipe library, including special diets like vegan, paleo, keto, and more. The app also allows you to follow along with their video recipes and check the cooking status.
Brava Smart Oven
This is the ultimate investment for cooks who crave a variety of home-cooked meals and want it at a press of a button.
This smart oven cooks with infrared light that can focus on different zones at the same time. It has the ability to sear meat without burning more delicate ingredients on the same cooking tray.
For example, you can put in a sheet pan with steak, potatoes, and asparagus, and it will simultaneously cook these ingredients at different levels of heat without undercooking or overcooking anything.
If you’re a busy cook, you’ll love that there’s no need for preheating, so your meal can be ready faster. It also comes with more than 6,000 recipes for the picky eaters in your life, and has different cooking modes like air fry, slow cook, and even dehydrate. This retails for $1,195 from Brava or Amazon.
For serious cooks, it’s important to pair a meal with a proper drink. When an ordinary beer or drab wine doesn’t cut it, you need this smart automated cocktail-making machine.
To start, load your machine with your spirits and mixers of choice. Open the Barsys App, and tell it what spirits you have. From there, it will give you all the drinks you can make, and once you select your drink, it will make it for you.
The machine automatically moves your glass from left to right as it pours your drink. The machine lighting makes for a fun conversational piece when having guests over.
There are more than 10,000 combinations for cocktail recipes, so you’ll always have something new to try.
This can be yours for $1,500 and is available exclusively from Barsys.
