There are ways to cook with your phone that don’t involve ordering delivery through an app. If you love cooking and technology, connected appliances and kitchen devices are the ideal gadgets for your smart home. They can automate parts of the cooking process, keep you updated on the progress of your food, or simply make sure you’re following a recipe correctly.

Smart kitchen gadgets are as varied as any kind of kitchen appliance. There are broad, multi-purpose devices like ovens. There are specific but common tools like coffee makers. And there are unique but incredibly useful appliances you might not have heard of before but won’t know how you lived without, like immersion circulators. Whether you live in the kitchen or just brew coffee and toast bagels, there’s a smart appliance that can make your culinary life easier, and we’ve gathered our top picks here to get you started.

Anova Precision Oven

Pros Cons
+ Precise temp control for sous vide results – App and touch controls are a bit clunky
+ Customizable steam cooking
+ Multiple conventional heat options
+ Integrated temp probe

The Bottom Line:
The Anova Precision Oven lets you bake, roast, slow cook, sous vide, and steam food to perfection, making it one the smartest countertop ovens you can buy.

Why We Picked It

The Anova Precision Oven is a countertop combi oven that combines conventional convection technology with steam cooking and a precise low-temperature mode for water- and bag-free sous vide cooking. In addition, it bakes, roasts, slow cooks, and steams food to chef-level results, making it one of the smartest appliances we’ve tested.

Who It’s For

In the market for a smart oven that can nearly do it all at a reasonable price? The Precision Oven is an excellent countertop device for cooking just about anything to perfection. It doesn’t have the $1,100 Brava oven’s air frying or dehydrating functions, but the addition of steam and low-temperature cooking more than make up for it.

The Tovala Steam Oven is a super-functional, multi-purpose smart oven capable of baking, broiling, and steaming foods through app control and QR codes. Tovala’s prefab meal kits are also excellent and offer some sophisticated flavors, though at $12 each, they’re a bit pricey. Whether you subscribe to the meals or not, the Tovala works well for baking, broiling, roasting, and steaming. That makes it a powerful appliance to keep on the counter.

Who It’s For

This is an ideal cooking appliance for individuals or couples. Its multiple cooking modes and extensive, multi-step cooking programs make it incredibly useful for whipping up nearly any meal. The optional meal kits can save busy folks a lot of time, and though expensive, are still cheaper than most takeout.

Sous video cooking is a simple process that makes it easy for anyone to prepare meals perfectly. You seal food in plastic and immerse it in a water bath heated to a precise temperature, made possible by immersion circulators like the Anova Precision Cooker. Thanks to both onboard controls and Wi-Fi connectivity, you can control the cooking process using the Anova itself or your phone.

Who It’s For

The Anova Precision Cooker is an excellent immersion circulator for anyone looking to cook sous vide. The onboard controls let you cook manually, and with the app, you can automate and remotely monitor the cooking process. The Anova Precision Cooker Nano is available for a bit less money, but its 750-watt power is just over half that of this model.

The smart model also supports Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can automate the cooking process with your voice. Its bulky size makes it less than ideal for small kitchens, but if you have the space, it’s easy to recommend.

Who It’s For

Home chefs searching for low-cost, connected convenience and reduced-fat cooking, take note: The Cosori Smart Air Fryer is easy to use, heats up much faster than an oven, crisps fresh and frozen foods with little to no added oil, and is easy to clean. It also works with a companion app and Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice commands, though we found these smart features to be more of an added bonus than essential.

The third-generation June Oven is more affordable, and it features a dozen different cooking modes. We like its large capacity as well as its onboard controls and sensors. Just note that the Android version of its companion app is limited without a premium membership, and the built-in camera isn’t that helpful.

In conjunction with a companion app, it estimates your cooking time and sends a notification to your phone when your food is ready. It’s super sleek and works well in the oven, though it’s more difficult to use accurately on top of the stove.

Who It’s For

Omnivores: The Meater+ makes cooking meat or fish a breeze, as long as you’re doing it in the oven. If you don’t need the extended range, you can also pick up the original Meater for a bit less money.


Going Bigger: Smart Refrigerators and Beyond

If you have the money to spend, you can get smart versions of larger appliances than most of those we share above. Companies including LG and Samsung have been working on connected refrigerators and ovens for a few years now. Some let you check their status through your phone so you can make sure things are working properly and that you have enough ice. Others have their own touch screen and can function as a communication center for your home; some even have cameras inside so you see which foods you’re low on while you’re out shopping.

These larger smart appliances carry a significant premium, and you can expect to spend several thousand dollars on each. On the bright side, they tend to be equivalent to the highest-end non-smart appliances from manufacturers in terms of design, build quality, and features. You can expect stainless steel finishes and other very nice touches you won’t find on cheaper options.
