The Best Home Appliance Technology: August 2021

Home appliance technology has been going crazy in recent times with so many advancements made in the smart appliance market and in the appliance market in general. So we’ve decided to put together a list of our top 5 home appliances and technology for 2021 so far.

1. RF9000 Family Hub French Style Fridge Freezer with Beverage Centre™ by Samsung.

The Samsung RF9000 Family Hub Fridge Freezer is a really exciting development in the fridge freezer market. It features double doors top and bottom, a 637 litre capacity for all your food and drink needs, a beverage centre to keep your drinks cool and a water and ice dispenser. The RF9000 truly makes your fridge freezer the technology centre of your home with the Family Hub. Samsungs latest internet of things innovation allows you to leave notes to your family, watch videos and stream music, plan meals, write shopping lists, sync calendars to keep everyone organised, and even access the internet just like you can on a computer. It has Alexa built-in and can connect to other assistants like Google Home Assistant. It can even connect to your Ring system, so you can see who’s at your door from your fridge! You can even view what’s inside your fridge with the camera on the inside of the door that will display the contents on the screen, making for a beautiful feature in your kitchen. Coming in black and silver stainless steel, this sleek, feature-filled fridge freezer doesn’t come cheap at £3,999.00 but as far as appliance innovation goes the RF9000 really impressed us.

2. Bosch Serie 6 1400rpm Washing Machine 8-10kg.

Bosch has also jumped on the smart appliance train with their Home Connect system. With an 8-10kg capacity, the Serie 6 Home Connect Washing Machine has Auto-Stain, which targets common stains to make sure your clothes are fresh every time. It has Home Connect where you can tell your washing machine what’s in the load and it’ll determine the best program for it to be on. It’ll even tell you if an item suits a different wash so you can take it out and separate loads effectively. You can also pause your wash so your clothes arent left sitting damp after the rinse while you have a change of plans. On the Home Connect app, there is also a really helpful FAQs section with all the answers you could need. This is a really impressive machine and it seems time-saving appliances are suddenly saving more time again! This machine retails for around £800, so it’s expensive, but if you’re into your smart appliances, this is one for you for sure.

3. Ninja Foodi MAX Health Grill & Air Fryer

The Ninja Foodi MAX Health Air Fryer will bring versatility and style to your cooking, easier than ever before. With a 3.8 litre capacity, there’s plenty of room for all your cooking needs.

It cooks perfectly on every side of your meal, so no need to get in and flip your steaks, just sit back and wait for your food! With it comes a recipe book to get you inspired. It is dishwasher safe and so easy to clean too, making things simple as can be for you. The Ninja Foodi MAX watches the temperature of your food so you don’t have to, and will cook your food to whatever finish you desire for your perfect meal. With air Fryers being all the rage right now, we think this is the best one on the market. It comes at a cost of £249.99 but will revolutionise the way you cook forever. If you’re into your cooking, the Ninja Foodi MAX Health Grill is certainly a consideration for you! Zest have also recently started protecting Air Fryers among other new items, so if you do get one and want more comprehensive cover than the warranty, check out our website.
