Families come in various shapes and sizes, but the one constant in many homes is that everyone in the family is busy. Work, school, lessons, and anything else you can think of takes up a good chunk of waking hours. In the kitchen, it’s often about making the most out of what little time you have to cook. Luckily appliances are getting faster and smarter to help you maximize your time. The refrigerator and oven seem to be the main beneficiaries of these technological advances, although products that store and make beverages have also received some help as well.
