Almost as soon as the iPad was announced, it became a kitchen staple for tons of cooks around the world — but unfortunately, none of the recipes it could offer up were able to communicate with anything else in your kitchen. The Drop Smart Scale is about to change that. It's the first in a series of smart kitchen products that connect with an app to ensure you're using the right amount of each ingredient, while automatically moving on to the next step so you don't get gunk all over your screen, and letting you easily increase or reduce quantities by doing all the math for you. Just open the app, turn on the scale, place a bowl on top, and go.
Say goodbye to your deep fryer and hello to healthier food with the Philips AirFryer. As the name suggests, this nifty appliance can fry foods with little to no oil thanks to its ability to circulate hot air at temperatures up to 390 degrees. The result is extra-crispy food that's cooked thoroughly, using a tablespoon or less of oil — which of course means far less fat. Not in the mood for fried fare? Using the touchscreen, you can also set it to bake, roast, or grill, meaning that unlike your deep fryer, it might actually be worth leaving out on the counter.
