Comet Predicts: Goodbye Celebrity Chefs, Hello Virtual Chefs

Comet Predicts: Goodbye Celebrity Chefs, Hello Virtual ChefsA new report by electrical specialist Comet, predicts that our kitchens will take a dramatic turn for the better by 2014.

In five years we will be experiencing new technology developments in our home kitchens with the addition of “virtual chefs” and “intelligent fridges” that can suggest bespoke recipes based on its contents.

Soon the celebrity chef will be phased out in favour of personal virtual culinary assistants, who will be a permanent fixture in each of our homes.

A welcome addition to help ease our busy lifestyles is the “virtual chef”, which takes the form of a 3D virtual hologram; it will be constantly by our side to offer cooking advice, cookery technique demos and bespoke recipe suggestions in the comfort of our own kitchens.

The British kitchen will change significantly in the next five years and become a much more exciting place to cook in; no longer will there be struggles to get cooking timings and measurements correct, the virtual chef will take the pressure off so we can focus on entertaining and relaxing.

The “intelligent fridge” will be a second addition to the kitchen of the future, with technology to offer recipe and mealtime suggestions, just by sensing what contents lie inside it.
Comet predicts that the ‘intelligent fridge’ will have the ability to contact you on your way home from work and suggest a variety of options for your supper to save you a trip to the supermarket.

By 2014, traditional recipe books will be a thing of the past, as our kitchens will boast ‘electronic paper’ recipes and video demonstrations placed on walls or cupboards for our convenience.
