Expected In 2017: High-Tech Kitchen Appliances

Smart kitchen appliances
Samsung Family Hub 2.0


Samsung Family Hub 2.0

Whether this is a fridge or your very own robot butler is up for discussion. One thing is for certain though, it’s a game-changer.

Features include View Inside cameras, allowing users to see what items need replenishing without opening the door, and a 21.5 inch LED touchscreen that acts as an interactive digital bulletin board. Most revolutionary of all though is the integration of Samsung’s advanced voice technology. With a command your fridge will add items to a shopping list or organise your calendar.


Whirlpool® All-in-One Care Washer/Dryer Combo

Turn laundry day from a chore into a charm! Whirlpool’s wi-fi-enabled washer/dryer includes downloadable cleaning cycles, phone alerts and ‘load-and-go’ bulk dispensing. An especially neat extra is, when synced with Amazon Dash, this unit senses if you’re running low on detergent and automatically orders more.   


Kitchen appliances in 2017
LG SIGNATURE Top Control Dishwasher


LG SIGNATURE Top Control Dishwasher

Combining style with performance, LG’s Signature brand is setting the bar high for state-of-the-art appliances. Equipped with all the expected necessities, including a large load capacity and adjustable racks, this dishwasher benefits from a few surprising additions too. Ultra-quiet wash cycles work at only a 40-decibel sound level and the TurboWash uses a multi-motion wash arm to spin and spray water in multiple directions for better coverage.


Panasonic Slow Juicer

Pulp haters rejoice! Slow juicing squeezes fruit and vegetables rather than spinning and dicing at high-speed. This causes less separation, eradicating bits and retaining more nutrients. It also comes with a frozen attachment for creating sorbets and is small-enough to sit discreetly on your worktop.


Dash Clear View Toaster

Keep an eye on browning bread using this toaster’s built-in viewing window. Offering more than just the expected grilling functionality, it also has a reheat option and extra long slots for perfectly toasting bagels and speciality breads.


Smarter iKettle 2.0

Get your day off to the best start possible! The iKettle is designed with water level sensors to prevent wastage, exact temperature control for hot drink connoisseurs and a ‘Wake Up Mode’ that syncs with your alarm.


Eco kitchen appliances
Zera™ Food Recycler


Zera™ Food Recycler

UK households throw out roughly 330 million tonnes of rubbish a year. The Zera Food Recycler promises to be the answer to curbing this waste. Scrape your plate into the opening and the incubator processes the scraps, turning it into ready-to-use fertiliser within 24 hours. No maintenance needed!


PicoBrew Zymatic

Home-brewing no longer means a bucket in your garage. The Zymatic is a fully automated, next level, beer brewing bonanza. The main draw lies in its capability to log data, allowing the user to methodically analyse their concoctions from batch to batch. Perfect for prototyping new recipes, this machine is a must for serious fans of craft beer.   


Braava jet™ Mopping Robot

Tackle those hard-to-reach places with this smart cleaning tool. Simply select one of three unique cleaning modes and put your feet up. A pad attached to it’s base does the main sweep, whilst a jet spray at the head targets stubborn stains, leaving your kitchen spotless. Plus, the robot can dodge obstacles using bumpers, allowing it to navigate even the most complex of floor plans.

We love our Black Rok kitchen! Jamie showed amazing patience and design expertise over the two years that it took us to create our vision, at the same time as building our house. Jamie was able to incorporate everything that we wanted, providing great advice and suggestions along the way. The installation was amazing - nothing was too much trouble and the coordination with our builders went perfectly. We have both a beautiful and fully functional space and would thoroughly recommend Black Rok.

Thoroughly recommend the Black Rok team. We put in a new kitchen and got excellent advice through the planning process. We asked to see a number of different layout options on the computer and Jamie was very patient and helpful. The installation team were first rate and took great pride in their work. Overall very satisfied.

Having downsized, I was somewhat daunted by the prospect of turning my narrow, shadowy, U-shaped, very basic kitchen into one that I actually wanted to spend time in. I now have a light, airy, functional space with practical ‘innards’ and modern, intuitive appliances. Thanks to Jamie and Ed the kitchen layout has been totally transformed and the best use has been made of the space with a sleek handle-less design and contemporary narrow worktops. Both Jamie and Ed have communicated professionally and openly at all stages of the project and Ed was even instrumental in steering me towards my final colour choices! I would thoroughly recommend Black Roc for their design and fitting capabilities.

WOW! Black Rok did a really fabulous job job with both design and fit. We have a high quality contemporary kitchen and appliances. The fit was done in just a few days with care and precision. We have had no issues but Black Rok have kept in touch and visited to ensure we are satisfied which of course we are. Fabulous colour and all very functional. Great decision to use Black Rok and we have no hesitation in recommending them.

We have nothing but positive things to say about the team at Black Rok Kitchen Design. Having spent 3-4 years dithering over getting a new kitchen, we finally decided to take the plunge last year. We had 2 criteria: a sleek, modern, German style kitchen provided by an independent, local business with impeccable references. After coming across the Black Rok website, we were immediately taken by the striking designs and reassured by the volume of glowing customer testimonials along with photographs of recent projects. From the moment we met with Jamie in the Uckfield showroom, it was clear that he understood what we were looking for. Although we had some pretty fixed ideas on design and layout, Jamie was able to take those ideas and enhance them seamlessly into an overall design scheme that exceeded our expectations in all departments. We had a few design meetings, several phone calls and email conversations, and within fairly short order were signing off on a final specification for delivery in early 2023. In the lead up to installation, communication was great and the technical drawings provided by Jamie for layout of plumbing and electrical services were described by our builder as the most detailed and accurate he had come across. Indeed the Black Rok team came onto site during the preparation works to meet with our builder and electricians to ensure a smooth installation process. Everything was delivered on time and exactly to the agreed budget. The cabinets and interiors are really well made and constructed with an engineered precision you might expect of a German manufacturer. The installation team of Ed, Zac and Jake were really personable, treated our home with great respect and worked extremely efficiently to ensure the kitchen was installed quickly and accurately. They solved every problem posed to them, displaying great attention to detail and tidying up diligently at the end of each day. We are utterly delighted with the new kitchen, which certainly delivers a "wow" moment when friends and family come to visit. The quality of the workmanship is incredible value for the overall price paid. We still pinch ourselves when walking into the room and are so pleased with ourselves for choosing Black Rok.

Fantastic, intelligent and responsive service from Jamie and Ed from start to end. The kitchen design stood out from the beginning for its attention to detail and a real understanding of what we wanted from the space. They recommended excellent builders and then worked with them to make sure that the end result was picture perfect to the design. Fitting was spot on from a skilled, diligent team and we were never kept waiting. Issues with 3rd party appliances were dealt with in a way which made it crystal clear that our satisfaction was the priority. Brilliant. Easy 5 Stars.

We are so pleased we elected to go with Black Rok kitchens, as they have designed and installed the kitchen of our dreams! Throughout the process, from design to installation we were reassured by the professionalism of Jamie and Ed. Jamie created a fantastic design for our kitchen and suggested ideas we had not previously considered and the installation by Jake, Zak and Ed has been completed to an exceptionally high standard! Nothing was too much trouble. If you're considering upgrading your kitchen, don't hesitate to contact Black Rok, you won't regret it.
