You and your mom buy your own pair of Motherspoons and register onto a dedicated platform for file sharing. So when your mom cooks her recipe and uses the spoon to taste her food, the sensor laden spoon picks up the ingredients and deciphers the recipe. When put on its cradle, the spoon loads the recipe to the sharing platform so that you can access it, even if you live miles apart.
The Almighty Board is the ultimate kitchen assistant. This smart-board will simultaneously serve as your cutting board, display your recipes, provide step-by-step directions and weigh your ingredients out for you. After you wash it, it will even tell you if it has been cleaned enough to avoid cross-contamination or food poisoning.
Countertop appliances don't have to be an eyesore. Instead, find ways to incorporate them into your kitchen decor. Take this @kitchenaidusa Professional Stand Mixer as an example. Not only is the color of the appliance pretty on its own, but the matching accessories and cabinet hardware bring the entire look together.
