The Coolest New Kitchen Gadgets of 2016

For individuals who love to cook and bake, there are few things more exciting than new kitchen gadgets, and last month’s Consumer Electronics Show unveiled a few products we can’t wait to test out ourselves!

There are so many incredible new machines out there to help make cooking your next dinner easier, whether you are making creamy lobster bisque in the winter or shrimp on the grill in the summer.

GoSun Grill

Compact in size and able to cook dinner for up to eight people, the GoSun Grill is the perfect summer companion. Whether you are interested in making dinner in your backyard or on the beach, this unique new product can bake, boil or fry your meal using just the power of the sun.

We love the idea of grilling summer favorites like shrimp shish kabobs and salmon inside this gadget while watching your kids play in the pool or enjoying cocktails on the patio with your neighbors.

Set to release this upcoming summer, the GoSun Grill costs $599.00 and is available for pre-order online.

Smarter Device Trio

A price-conscious alternative to the expensive smart ovens and refrigerators that are making their debut this year, Smarter’s device trio upgrades the kitchen appliances you already own, allowing them to work in sync with your smart phone.

Fridge Cam

First on the list is the Fridge Cam, which will take a picture of the inside of your refrigerator every time you open the door and send it to an app on your phone. This way, the next time you want to stop at the grocery store on the way home from work you will know exactly what you need to restock.

Smart Mat

The Smart Mat performs similarly inside of cupboards. Placed under your most used items, the mat can tell how much you have left and will send an alert to your phone to let you know. This way, the next time your kids use up all the peanut butter making PB&J sandwiches, you will be able to pick up some more – even if they forget to let you know.


The third gadget in this trio is the Detect. Equipped with a microphone, this little device learns the sounds of your home, letting you know things like when the oven timer goes off and the dryer stops. Even if you have to run out to the backyard with Fido, dinner won’t burn!

Set to range in price from $80 to $100, these devices are accessible through Wi-Fi and are expected up launch by August of this year.

NutriBullet RX

Not only can the NutriBullet RX create delicious and healthy smoothies, but it can also blend and heat soup in just seven minutes. A quick way to make a healthy meal, just blend up your ingredients and flip the cup to start drinking or eating.

A great idea for an on the go meal, we love the idea of blending up a creamy vegetable soup, then adding in some fresh cooked Maine lobster for a satisfying and easy meal that you and your family can enjoy after a busy day at work and school.

With these and many other interesting new kitchen gadgets to try, this year is sure to be a fun one to get in the kitchen and make something new! If you are interested in cooking up a seafood dinner with ingredients fresh from Maine, Cape Porpoise Lobster Co. can have our fresh seafood at your door overnight!
