|What, this old thing?|
--Appliances will be wired to monitor their contents and reorder when supplies run low. Products nearing expiration would be moved to the front (how, I wonder).
--Each family member can print the dinner they want using a countertop 3D printer--and the food will be printed out, taking into consideration allergies, likes, dislikes. etc.
--Induction cooktops will heat only the area being used.
--Counters, sinks and cooking surfaces will move up or down at the touch of a button.
--Facial recognition will even do this when a person walks in.
--Virtual chefs will appear to walk people through food prep.
--The kitchen will consult with your fitness system--yes, you need more carbs after a strenuous workout.
--Video monitoring will help you see what's in the fridge.
--Also in the fridge--ultraviolet light to sterilize food, and a blast chiller will keep it freezy.
Golly, I don't know how I manage cooking and eating leftovers, with my one-height stove that doesn't know me from Adam's cat--and just turns on and cooks stuff.
By the way--I don't want the darn appliances ordering things and spending money I may not have.
