From advances in kitchen appliance technology to luxurious touch-free faucets, there are some very cool high-end kitchen features that rival any other kitchen you thought you could have. Check out these seven high-end kitchen features you never knew you needed or wanted.
If you have space, building a pizza oven is a super fun addition to your kitchen (even though it’s technically outside). If you don’t feel like building an entire pizza oven on your back patio, there are tabletop pizza ovens that work just as great. Though not IN the kitchen, a pizza oven is a truly high-end feature that can bring your at-home culinary experience to the next level. The Williams Sonoma pizza oven heats up to 923 degrees (hence why it MUST be outside) and can cook restaurant-quality pizzas in 60 seconds.
Built-in Sous Vide
Signature Kitchen suite backed by LG has created not only multiple high-end kitchen appliances but a stovetop and oven that have a built-in Sous Vide station. Sous vide means “under vacuum” in French, and has been a long-used traditional way of cooking in restaurants to ensure the same result with every cook. It starts with vacuum sealing the food, mainly meat, and submerging it in a hot water bath. This precision cooking guarantees a perfect outcome every time and leaves guessing out of it. The built-in sous vide in the Signature Kitchen Suite collection promises a +/- temperature variance by just 1 degree. Now, that’s precise! The entire oven, stovetop, and sous vide connect to an app via wifi and allow you to track all of your dishes temperatures and finish times without having to hover over the appliance. Bring the precision cooking into your home kitchen with this high-end piece.
Heated floors don’t just have to be for the bathroom or your chilly basement. If you choose to re-do your kitchen floors, why not add some heated tile? A cold kitchen morning getting your coffee can be just that much better when your bare feet touch the lovely warm floor of the kitchen in the morning. The kitchen is a place to gather, whether it’s family meals or having friends over for drinks and homemade pizza — everyone always ends up congregating in the kitchen. Food and drink bring people together, and so does nice warm feet. If you’re like most people, you probably don’t have people wearing shoes around the house, so why not make them feel MORE than welcome with a glass of wine, and a nice warm floor.
Touch Screen Samsung Fridge
If you’ve seen the commercials for these you know it’s so ridiculous, in the very best way. A fridge with a touchscreen on the entire front of the door. The Samsung Smart Fridge, or Family HUB, is revolutionizing how we not only manage our groceries and kitchen but how we manage the entire family. The refrigerator has 3 built-in cameras on the inside so you can see what is in your fridge, and build a grocery list, without even opening the door. It can display photos, recipes, and even sync up with apps like Instacart, GrubHub, and Uber to place your orders for groceries or a ride directly from your REFRIGERATOR. This is the future, people, and we have everything we could possibly need right there in the kitchen. Amazing!
We touched on this a bit with the smart-fridge, but there are several everyday appliances that have been upgraded to be wifi enabled and connect to apps from your phone. Now, this is something we never knew we needed, but glad we do now! You can now control your oven, stovetop, crockpot, and even outdoor smoker right from your phone. Companies like LG and Samsung have been upping their game when it comes to building smart homes even smarter and more convenient. The days of having to set your crockpot or smoker and hope for the best are over. With wifi and application capabilities, you can adjust the temperature, check cooking times, and even shut off your devices from wherever you are — even away from home. Some gadgets that connect to your phone include wifi-enabled meat thermometers, touchless food scales, and even portable sous vide devices that can all be controlled from your phone without having to install an entirely new appliance.
Deep Farm Sink with Pull-Down Sprayer
Everyone dreams of having a huge kitchen sink, with the perfect faucet and a high-pressure sprayer. It’s simple but high-end and a deep farm sink with a pull-down sprayer is a high-end upgrade you know you want in your updated kitchen. Stack it full of dishes, brine a whole turkey, or give your baby a bath in a tub they actually fit in! Whatever it is, a deep farm sink will absolutely complete your rustic kitchen look, and you’ll feel so good using your sink to do dishes without the overflow or splatter!
A drawer dishwasher is an impressive, up-scale appliance that can truly change how your kitchen looks. The dual-drawer doors can blend right in with the other cabinets, and take up less room, and look more “fancy” than your traditional dishwasher door. They work great for quick and easy loading and unloading, especially right next to the sink. You won’t have to bend down as far, plus you can open it and see exactly what’s inside without an extra step. Also, if you have a kitchen island or other cabinets, it takes up far less space and is less cumbersome than having to open up the large pull-down door. Not to mention, they’ve been designed to be quieter, more energy-efficient, and allow for single drawer runs for smaller loads. No more waiting till it’s full to run it!
Give yourself the kitchen of your absolute dreams with these highly unique appliances and high-end features. Play Spotify on your fridge’s touchscreen while you sous vide steak, and run a small load of glasses in the dishwasher. The perfect kitchen is where functionality meets convenience meets technology.
