SO MUCH TO DO IN SO LITTLE TIME!!
Do you feel the same? Always so much to do in so little time?
I don’t know how time flies so fast every day. With a few businesses and two busy boys (with an even more active sports schedule!) on my shoulder, my days are always jam-packed with to-dos and running around. By the time we get to “what’s for dinner?” it is way too late in the day. But let me share some awesome hacks that help me with household chores on these crazy days.
Just recently, we have upgraded to a smart kitchen. With the addition of my new Whirlpool® Smart Single Wall Oven and Smart Dishwasher – all equipped with smart technology – my life is so much easier.
Today I am sharing a few smart kitchen hacks that help me and my family complete household chores easier and faster.
Okay. This new technology blows my mind. I know there is an app for everything now, but how awesome is it that I can control my Whirlpool® Smart Single Wall Oven with a compatible voice-enabled device1 We have Amazon Alexa in the house, and it is so much fun – even my boys love it – when I can say “Alexa- Preheat the oven at 375 degrees1. I can be upstairs doing laundry in my fabulous new laundry room without heading down to the kitchen to preheat the oven.
Definitely one of my favorite features of my new wall oven.
Now, this feature is going to blow your mind.
We are not huge on frozen foods, but we sure have those days when soccer practice goes until 8 pm, and there is not much option for dinner other than a frozen pizza. You have those days, right? Using the Whirlpool app2 via a smartphone or tablet, I can scan the bar codes on select frozen food, and once the bar code is scanned, the app will send recommended cooking instructions straight to my Whirlpool® Smart Single Wall Oven3
My older son is 11 years old and loves making his pizza dinner or cookies with Scan-to-Cook Technology3

Washing dishes is not my favorite thing to do. I took over the cooking role in the house, and my husband does dishes. But I might change my mind on that with my new Whirlpool® Smart Dishwasher.:-)
For the record, I am the messiest chef in this entire world – says the hubby haha- so having the ability to set custom cycles and create unique settings with my smart washer is extra helpful. Not to mention the 35% more rack space with the third level rack to load more dishes and get extra room for hard to fit items4
And last but not least, I can also use voice control2with Alexa to help me turn on the dishwasher if I forgot1or if I am already upstairs playing foosball with the boys (Yes- we have family foosball tournaments).
Our smart kitchen has been amazing and now I can safely say that I have a cool “assistant” that I have always dreamed of. Thanks for visiting today and I hope you got inspired with these fun kitchen hacks.
