Our award-winning kitchen designers are consistently working hard to bring fresh ideas into our offerings here at Roccia in order to provide you with the latest and greatest available on the market.

Designing a kitchen can be difficult, and sometimes it’s hard to know which features and functions are a necessity and which are less so, depending on how you intend to use your space.

To help you out, we’re looking into some of the innovative kitchen technology options that our luxury kitchen brands here at Roccia can bring to your home.

How Far Has Kitchen Technology Come?

We have moved far past basic integrated appliances, and now we’re living in a progressively more digital world; technology is finding its way into our kitchens more and more.

Some years ago, the best kitchen tech involved integration, such as a built-in microwave or coffee-maker. This was revolutionary as it allowed the user to match their appliances with their desired aesthetic and alleviated the stress of wondering whether the devices they had bought separately, would fit into their kitchen.

Since then, we have seen a long list of kitchen technology trends come and go, all designed to make the user experience easier. For example, self-cleaning appliances, hidden cabinets to hide clutter, clever lighting, and much more. Now, if you can dream it, you can create it. Almost nothing is impossible in terms of kitchen technology.


Boiling Taps

A boiling tap just looks like a regular kitchen tap, and in some ways, it is; providing hot and cold water immediately. However, they also have the added feature of producing boiling water just as quickly and easily. You have boiling water at the push of a button or turn of a handle, eliminating the need to wait for a kettle to boil or a pan of water to heat up. It boils through a tank below your sink, which can be easily installed by a plumber, giving you quick access to boiling water immediately.

This fantastic and innovative feature is an ingenious addition that some of our kitchen brands here at Roccia offer; perfect for busy families or budding chefs to who time means everything.

Vacuum Sealer Drawers

There is a long list of benefits to vacuum sealing your food:

  • Assists with meal prep. If you like to prepare your food for the week by batch cooking, you can easily portion a dish and vacuum seal each meal for easy preparation.
  • Reduces food waste. If you have leftovers after a big meal, vacuum whatever remains and save it for another day.
  • Extends food shelf life. Vacuum sealing removes all oxygen, which means mould and bacteria are prevented, and food is preserved. As a result, food inside can last for up to five times longer than if just placed in the fridge or freezer.
  • Helps with food organisation. Once vacuum sealed, you can clearly see what food you have stored, allowing you to organise your pantry, fridge, or freezer easily.

The convenience of a vacuum sealer drawer is incomparable; if you have a hardworking kitchen, this clever technology is essential in your design. Organise, prep, and store your leftover food easily before shutting the drawer and allowing it to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your kitchen.


Hidden Storage

Hidden storage isn’t a new kitchen innovation; we have been using secret drawers and hiding appliances away with our cabinets for a long time. However, there are more types of storage available now than ever before.

Now, many people are looking for a clean-line look, but achieving a minimalistic aesthetic in a busy family kitchen may seem impossible. However, we have plenty of clever storage solutions to help out, including those from Jacob & Sons. Our Jacob & Sons kitchens offer every storage solution you could think of, including hidden pantries, deep drawers, and bespoke fittings, so you can get exactly what you need out of your kitchen.

Built-in Chargers

Kitchens have evolved far past a space to cook. Now, they are the heart of the home and often the room where guests gather and entertainment is hosted. Because of this, the room’s functions must evolve to meet these new standards. Our Elba Schuller kitchens have listened carefully to the demands and now offer a list of advanced technological add-ons to make your kitchen a space you never need to leave. For example, their smartphone charging stations are truly one of a kind, allowing you to charge up without your wire taking the place of an essential kitchen appliance. We also offer wireless charging stations built into your kitchen design, so you can keep track of the recipe on your phone without worrying about losing power right in the middle and preventing the danger of loose wires while cooking.


Smart Appliances

In addition to the features discussed, transforming your kitchen into a smart kitchen is more crucial than ever before. Smart appliances have come a long way, and now your possibilities are endless. Send a Tweet from your fridge, play music from your worktops, and so much more. You can customise your kitchen however you and your household will utilise it best in order for you to get the most out of your space.
