Today’s kitchens are no longer simple work areas with an oven range and the indispensable refrigerator. Modern kitchens are almost like technology hubs in themselves. Along with a host of modern appliances and tools there are some things which have become ubiquitous in modern kitchens across the world. Resistant technologies are now used in pots and pans, ovens and splashbacks.
The Tough Teflon
The absolute basic in kitchenware are Teflon pans and cookware. These cooking pans are coated with polytetrafluoroethylene, a polymer which is also called PTFE. This material has water-repellent properties and also prevents food from sticking to the pan. Though Teflon-coated utensils are extremely popular and not overtly expensive, there are some risks to using overheated pans. There have also been some indications of health issues in laboratory tests on animals, from a chemical that is produced in the Teflon manufacturing process,
Advantages of Teflon
Teflon is very effective in preventing food from sticking in pans. This makes cooking much easier. You also need a significantly less amount of cooking oil while cooking in Teflon coated pans which makes the food healthier. These pans are easy to clean and any food that has attached itself to the surface comes off very easily after a quick soak.
The Hottest Range Of Ovens
The latest in kitchen technology is the Infrawave Speed Oven. Different brands have their own variants of ovens that are manufactured using this technology. These ovens make use of infrared light technology and give instant heating a whole new meaning. Setting the right temperature is also not a requirement any longer. The units are outfitted with automatic menus that select the required temperature. The cooking cycles are set automatically depending on the food that is being cooked. Infrared light technology cooks the inside as well as the outside of foods, simultaneously thus retaining the flavor and the moisture in cooked foods.
No matter how modern your kitchen may be, it will get dirty from constant use. The one surface that tends to get very messy is the wall that is adjacent to the gas stove. This is where splashbacks come into the picture. They can be made of metal, timber, laminate and glass. Though the rest are functional and long-lasting too, nothing can beat a glass splashback.
Glass splashbacks serve a specific function, but they are also very attractive and are available in an astonishing range of styles and colours. This makes the kitchen look unique, stylish and funky. It is completely smooth and has no uneven textures. There are no transfers or any other knobby bits such as ones that are found on tiles. When it comes to cleaning, all that a glass splashback requires is a quick spray, a deft wipe, and you will have the cleanest possible wall ever. Because glass kitchen splashbacks are manufactured in one section there is no grouting or seams to worry about. This leaves the cooking area clear of unhygienic little microbes.
And so as technology advances, newer and more functional kitchen materials, tools and equipment will be invented and launched and will help make your kitchen a more user friendly and modern space.
