Huh. I’ve been developing, strategizing and writing about connected devices for more than a decade, and we’ve all been hearing about the Internet-enabled refrigerator since 1999… and yet, as I finished a full kitchen remodel in my home, I realized that there isn’t even ONE connected device within it.
Why not? With connected food and cooking products coming to market seemingly every week, from knobs that automatically raise and lower the temperature of a cooking pot to plates that weigh and log your meals, why is it that connected kitchen products haven’t found a secure place in the market?
Many issues are holding back the connected kitchen, which I explore in my August/September 2015 column in Connected World Magazine.
