Bern's Bites: Futuristic kitchen
According to the market intelligence report, the smart kitchen appliances market is expected to reach $8.20 billion by 2024. The increasing urbanisation has also fuelled the need for independently operating kitchen appliances, which the consumers can access or give orders to operate based on their convenience. This has been made possible with the extensive internet connectivity, which is present in most advanced economies but is gradually picking pace in the developing nations. As a result, the ease in operating and managing kitchens has made smart kitchen appliances an attractive option for consumers who lead a hectic lifestyle.
