Smart fridges are refrigerators that are connected to the Internet and can help you place orders for essentials, food, beverages, fresh produce, meat and frozen desserts with the touch of a screen that displays all the information you want right on front or top of the fridge.
Smart refrigerators are connected appliances that know what items are going into the fridge, their expiry dates and the recipe ideas for ingredients you pull out of the fridge. That’s right. They are smart.
If you are the type of person who frequently forgets what goes into the fridge, often end up with milk gone bad or food with layer of fungus over it, then a smart fridge would make life much easier for you. The display screen on the fridge will help you find exactly what is inside and where it is with the touch of the screen.
You may feel spooked when the fridge talks back with advice to replace milk or buy more vegetables because the fresh produce rack is empty. You may not like the cooking recipe ideas or suggestions that the fridge comes up with. But talking smart fridges or ovens are not really that big of an innovation in the world of a Siri, a Cortana or talking GPS navigation systems.
You cannot argue against the many benefits of owning a smart fridge. The convenience of placing orders for items that you are running low on, browsing the internet to check for offers on the products you want, comparing prices from different online stores and applying coupons when placing orders can all be done while you check the inventory displayed conveniently for you.
How simple is that?
No more rummaging through the fridge to take stock of what you have and what you need, making notes on paper and taking the list to the store or computer to place orders. Everything can be done with the touch of a few screens like taking money out of ATM or buying the latest song on iTunes.
No more wasted food because you forgot it existed in the depths of your fridge, no more throwing away of spoiled food because your fridge will remind you of the expiry date, no more running out of your favorites because your smart appliance will remind you to place an order before you run out of it. Make the smart choice and get a smart fridge.
So, who wants talking refrigerators?
