Budget-Friendly Smart Kitchen Devices for Holiday Cooking

Whether you’re preparing Thanksgiving dinner or baking Christmas goodies, these budget-friendly smart devices, paired with fast and reliable internet from S&T will save you time and up your game in the kitchen this year.  

Drop Scale

To say that the Drop Scale is more than a traditional kitchen scale is a serious understatement. Once connected to your WiFi, this scale can keep you all of your recipes on track. For instance, let’s say a recipe calls for more than you have flour left in the pantry. You simply pour what you have into a bowl on the scale, and it will recalculate the all of the other amounts in the recipe for you. Or, maybe you’d like to swap out one ingredient for another. Drop Scale will tell you exactly how much of that new ingredient you should use to balance out your recipe. 

iDevices Kitchen Thermometer

Tired of constantly having to drop everything to look at the meat thermometer in the oven? Or, having to buy an extra thermometer to monitor two things at once? This smart thermometer from iDevices solves both of these problems by connecting to an app on your phone. With it you can track two temperatures at once on your smartphone via an app and set up alerts for when your target temperature is reached. That way you are free to work on your other holiday meal dishes, or entertain your guests.   

June Oven

The June Oven is not exactly on the inexpensive side at $700, but for everything it can do, you may want to make the investment. In addition to being a countertop oven, this smart appliance is also an air fryer, slow cooker, toaster, and broiler. It also has a built-in HD camera that can recognize various ingredients and prompt you with suggested cooking programs. And when connected to WiFi, you can use an app to monitor your food with the camera and make any necessary adjustments to the settings from anywhere.

This connected coffee maker can stay one step ahead of your caffeine needs thanks to its advance scheduling features. And if you find yourself in need of a “pick-me-up” while you’re knee deep in wrapping paper? No problem. The Hamilton Beach coffee maker integrates with your WiFi-enabled Alexa to make it completely voice controlled. You can even control the strength of the brew! 

Let these smart kitchen devices, and fast and reliable WiFi from S&T keep you on track this holiday season.
