Kitchen Appliances Breaking News from CES 2024

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2024 has kicked off with a bang, and some of the leading names in the kitchen and bath industry are making waves with their groundbreaking innovations. Here’s a sneak peek into what GE Profile, Bosch, Samsung, and JennAir have unveiled.

GE Profile
Smoking Up a Storm with Smart Indoor Smoker

GE Profile stole the show at CES with not one but two disruptive home appliances. The talk of the town is the Smart Indoor Smoker, a game-changer for urban dwellers who crave that authentic smoked flavor. About the size of a toaster oven, it’s perfect for high-rise apartments. It uses wood pellets for that rich smokey taste, but here’s the twist – the technology traps the smoke inside, ensuring a ‘no smoke’ indoor smoking experience. Whitney Welch, a spokesperson for GE Appliances, highlighted its versatility, accommodating anything from a full brisket to 40 chicken wings. The second showstopper, the UltraFast Combo, earned the prestigious CES Innovation Award.

Brewing Excellence with Fully Automatic Espresso Machine

Bosch is all about energizing life, and at CES, they took it to the next level with the launch of the Bosch 800 Series Fully Automatic Espresso Machine. This innovation, a CES 2024 Innovation Award Honoree, promises to perfect the art of making espresso. From a Long-Lasting Ceramic Grinder to an Intelligent Flow Heater, every feature is meticulously crafted for coffee aficionados. The Active Select Display with a 5” touch screen adds a touch of elegance, allowing users to customize their coffee experience. Bosch also showcased new features in their Dishwashers, Laundry, and Induction Cooktops, making their booth a hub of smart home innovations.

Martha Stewart Joins the Tech Party

Samsung’s booth at CES 2024 was full of excitement, and they had none other than Martha Stewart to join and kick off the party. Their focus was on the power of connectivity in the age of AI, demonstrating it all through SmartThings technology. Martha Stewart, the businesswoman and media personality that she is, showcased her tech-savvy side by using SmartThings to craft her signature “Martha-tini” and prepared smashed potatoes. Samsung’s goal was to highlight the magic that happens when kitchen expertise meets cutting-edge technology.

Revolutionizing Refrigeration with SlimTech Insulation

JennAir made a splash at CES when they unveiled their industry-first innovation – SlimTech™ Insulation on a JennAir® Column refrigerator. They quoted that this was one of the greatest Refigeration innovations in 50 years. This breakthrough is a leap forward in refrigeration design, offering up tp 25% more capacity, 66% thinner wall thickness and up to 30% more energy efficiency. Attendees at the event got the first hands-on impressions of this revolutionary insulation, setting the stage for a new era in refrigeration.
