There are certain tasks we could never have imagined simplifying, like adjusting the temperature in your home when you’re still at work. For a lot of people, it was a big lights with autotimers became available—how many of us could have predicted that we’d be able to talk to our appliances within a few short years?

That is the world we live in today, and even it isn’t done evolving. As smart devices become increasingly smarter, integrating voice command options through Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Yes, you now have the authority to literally tell your appliances what you want them to do…and have them listen.

Take your oven. Wouldn’t it be nice if all you had to do was say, “Preheat” for it to do just that? Well, with today’s smart appliances, this is no longer the stuff of science fiction. 

Take the Whirlpool Smart Slide-in Electric Range with Scan-to-Cook Technology. This smart oven/cooktop will respond to voice commands, whether issued via Amazon Echo (Alexa) or your Google Assistant. You can also scan frozen food barcodes to receive recommended or customized cooking instructions, and send those instructions to your oven. On top of that, there’s an intuitive touchscreen that learns, adapts, and makes suggestions based on your family’s routines. It can manage multiple cooking instructions at a time and will auto-adjust the cooking temperature based on the recipe you use or the instructions you include. Whether you’re cooking for one or preparing to have a houseful of guests, the Whirlpool Smart Slide-in Electric Range can keep your kitchen running smoothly, keep your food heated, and your recipes in one convenient place.

It won’t be long before life before smartphones becomes a period remembered only by the history books. Still, it hasn’t been that long since the only thing a phone could do was place a call. Today’s phones have become a necessity for the majority of working Americans—we use them to keep calendars, make appointments, tell us the time, compile grocery lists, wake us up, take notes, answer emails; when we’re not at work, we use the same device to play games, listen to music, catch the latest episode of our favorite TV shows, and so on. The list of things you can do with a smartphone is literally endless. It’s now multifunctional, and we’re not about to take a step backward.

Appliances like the refrigerator are the same way. There is the use we are all familiar with, but today’s refrigerators can do so much more. Consider the Samsung 3 -Door French Door Refrigerator with Family Hub, which takes refrigeration to the next level. Say you’re at the store and can’t remember if you needed to buy milk. Perhaps you meant to include it on a list and simply never found the time to check. With three built-in cameras, you can check the contents of your fridge at any time. You can also set up expiration notifications and build shopping lists.

Leave notes on the fridge to alert others where you’re going to be? The Samsung 3-Door takes this to the next level—you can create entire schedules to keep up with the practices, recitals, games, meetings, interviews and other weekly or monthly activities that make up your family’s work- or school-week. Color-coded entries make it simple to follow who’s up to what, taking some of the guesswork out of meal preparation.

That’s not even getting into playing music, videos, the morning news, weather updates, traffic reports which, yes, this refrigerator also does.

Imagine getting alerts on your phone the moment your clothes are clean. Or starting the wash or dry cycle by voice command. That capability is up for grabs with appliances from LG. These washers are designed to handle everything from mountains of towels and jeans or small loads clean and fresh within 15 minutes with LG’s SpeedWash Cycle. These appliances are built with your convenience in mind. Spill something on a throw pillow? Did your child’s favorite stuffed animal take a bath in a mud puddle? This washer/dryer set has it handled. Reduce wrinkles, eliminate static, and, thanks to sensor technology, be assured that when your laundry is done drying, it’s really done.

We truly have entered a magical age, where the technology we previously goggled at on Star Trek is available and easy to integrate into everyday life. Even better, many of these appliances, like the Samsung 3 -Door French Door Refrigerator with Family Hub, LG Appliances Ultra Large Smart wi-fi Enabled Front Load Washer, and LG Appliances Ultra Large Capacity Smart wi-fi Enabled SteamDryer are Energy Star—helping reduce both your carbon footprint and your utility bill.
