The Latest Technology in Appliances: What to look for in 2023

April 14, 2023

Appliance manufacturers are continually adding new technology to our home appliances to make our lives easier and help make daily chores less stressful. With all the new developments, it can be difficult to keep up with things

Whirlpool Kitchen

We have compiled a list of the latest technology innovations in home appliances and what you can look for in 2023 here.

Flexible Temperature Refrigerators

One of our favorite innovations in smart refrigerators is flexible temperature zones. These refrigerators feature areas that can easily be adjusted to both refrigerator and freezer temperatures providing the flexibility to adjust your freezer or refrigerator space based on your storage needs.

This French Door refrigerator from Samsung is just one of the select Samsung models that feature a FlexZone™ drawer. Select Frigidaire models feature a Custom-Flex® Temp Drawer and several other brands feature similar adjustable temperature areas. We expect to see more brands launch this unique feature in the coming months.

Connect Your Entire Home with Smart Appliances

Although smart appliances are not a new innovation in 2023, the ability to connect with more and more devices is continually growing. We highly recommend investing in smart appliances that allow you to connect your entire home.

Many home appliances and TVs can easily connect to your Google Home or Alexa-enabled devices to allow you to easily control or check on your appliances via voice command keeping your hands free.

Samsung’s Family Hub refrigerators are one of the best examples of how a smart appliance that connects your entire home can make life easier. You can stream music or videos, check your Ring cameras, set reminders or announcements, and update your calendar all on a Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator.

Receive Notifications and Diagnostics

Another benefit of smart appliances is the notifications and alerts they can easily provide you with. From letting you know that your laundry needs to be switched to alerting you that dinner is done, they make life easier.

Most smart appliances also let you easily diagnose any issues before they become much larger problems.

Many appliances have built-in Artificial Intelligence (AI) that allows them to learn and remember your usage habits to better anticipate your needs and automatically make adjustments to conserve energy and water.

Some great examples include:

  • Select dishwashers, like this Whirlpool Heavy-Duty dishwasher, have a built-in soil sensor that automatically adjusts the cycle to conserve energy and water.
  • Select washers and dryers can connect together to sync wash and dry cycles, detect how wet clothes are and adjust the dry time accordingly, and more.
  • New oven models from Samsung will feature AI that senses burning and adjusts temperatures accordingly.

Pre-Heat from Anywhere

With select oven and range models, you can pre-heat your oven from your phone. This is an especially helpful feature to have on busy nights when you’re running late to start dinner. Having the oven or range ready for your meal when you get home can save you cooking time.
