Who it’s for: Those who want to save water and cooks who constantly have their hands full.
Why did we choose the Owofan Touchless Smart Faucet?
Smart faucets have grown in popularity over the last several years, and Owofan has an amazing solution to meet this rising need.
While you won’t be able to start your kitchen sink with a companion app, the Owofan Touchless Smart Faucet does come with a “smart” motion sensor. The sink turns on when you wave your hand in front of the sensor. When you wave it past again, the sink goes off. Turn on the water and leave the room for 15 minutes by accident? The Owofan has an auto shut-off mechanism that automatically switches off the water after three minutes of inactivity.
The Owofan is made of stainless steel and lead-free components, and it has two spray modes and a 23.6-inch extension hose for the hardest cleaning duties.

Who it’s for: Alexa households and those looking for a top-notch microwave from a trusted brand.
The following are the reasons we chose the Toshiba ML-EM34P Smart Microwave:

You may communicate with the ML-EM34P using an Echo device that supports Alexa. Start and stop a microwave cycle, activate a cooking cycle with a timer (“Alexa, defrost for two minutes in my microwave”), and more commands are available. Please keep in mind that the microwave does not have Alexa, so you’ll need to have an Echo device nearby to use the voice functions.
This stainless steel microwave, at 1.3 cubic feet, is also quite spacious for most reheated meals, TV dinners, and other small- to medium-sized kitchenware. We particularly appreciate the addition of a humidity sensor, which automatically changes the cooking temperature based on the item being heated.

A good dishwasher may make all the difference in the kitchen, especially if it can connect to Wi-Fi and provide a slew of useful diagnostic tools. And the LG Studio Top-Control 24-Inch Dishwasher is a prime example of a well-executed smart appliance.
First and foremost, the LG Studio is brimming with cleaning technology. There are four QuadWash spray arms to blast your dishes and silverware from every angle imaginable, TrueSteam for superior drying, a height-adjustable third rack, and incredibly quiet operation. Dual Zone washing, which automatically changes water pressure for both the top and bottom compartments of the washer, is also available.
