Spy on Your Fridge

You’re at the grocery store, trying to remember if you need more milk or if you have all the ingredients for dinner. Enter FridgeCam, a wireless camera that allows you to see the contents of your fridge from anywhere, via the FridgeCam app. Along with providing a visual of the inside of your fridge, the app can send reminders about expiration dates to help you manage food waste, and alert you when specific items are running low or depleted. $150;

Smart Mixer

The recipe instructions say “blend with a mixer for 2 minutes.” Do you set a timer? Keep a close eye on your watch? With KRUPS’ new 10-speed Digital Hand Mixer with turbo boost, you can simply set a count-up timer on the mixer to keep track of how long you’ve been mixing. There’s even a pause function if you need to put the mixer down to attend to something else and then start again. $50;

Grill Indoors

The T-fal OptiGrill + allows you to grill indoors year-round. A cooking sensor automatically adapts to the thickness of your food and delivers doneness from rare to well-done for six different programs: burgers, poultry, panini, sausage and pork, red meat, and fish. There’s also a manual setting to customize the temperature for grilling veggies and fruit. Angled grills allow fat to drip off easily into the drip tray; grills and tray are dishwasher safe. $150;

Sharper Knives

Dull knife blades make kitchen work unnecessarily difficult. AnySharp’s Pro Knife Sharpener can fix that. The compact tool features a PowerGrip suction base to securely attach it to any flat surface, making it safe and easy to use with one hand. Just three or four strokes—in the same direction—hones blades, even hardened steel and serrated knives. Available in nine fun colors. $22;

High-Tech Tea

The British tradition of perfectly brewed tea is now available in the U.S. via the iKettle. This smart tea kettle enables users to remote-boil water from anywhere using the Smarter app. The app can also adjust temperature and schedule Wake Up Mode so that water is always hot first thing in the morning or Home Mode for your return home in the evening. In addition to its stand-alone features, iKettle works with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant to respond to a simple voice command. $150;
