Balancing Kitchen Duties and Family Time During the Holidays
Let smart home technology help you relax and enjoy the holiday season.
December 22, 2016
There’s often too much to do and too little time during the holiday season, and some may feel stressed at the very thought of the big family get-together. With a few smart home products, you can destress and look forward to making memories throughout the season.
One of the hardest tasks during the holidays is managing everything in the kitchen. Between all the casseroles, cookies, pies, cakes and turkeys, your oven will be working overtime to get everything ready. After everything has been prepared, your dishwasher will take the spotlight to make sure all your pots, pans and plates are sparkling for the next party.
If you’re traveling for the holidays, it’s helpful to cook your dishes at your home then toss them in the oven to warm up for a few minutes when you arrive. Just program your oven to preheat while you’re getting ready and pop your dish in to cook before heading out the door. The Yeti Tundra Cooler helps keep your dishes warm while traveling and makes taking leftovers home much easier.

The Samsung Slide-In Electric Flex Duo Range with Wi-Fi connectivity is great for cooking faster, smarter and on a schedule. You can set the oven to begin baking at a preset time so all of the dishes are ready at the same time. This oven also has three racks that can be configured to fit all your casserole dishes and the turkey pan all at the same time! You can operate the oven on two different temperatures using the divider so you don’t have to worry about smells mixing since no one wants to open the oven to check the cookies and smell the cornbread dressing.
The Samsung Slide-In Induction Range allows you to choose between the normal double oven where you cook everything at the same temperature or divide the space to have two smaller ovens that can be set to two different temperatures. For those of us who try to warm the frozen squash casserole and completely cook the pumpkin pie at the same time, always burning one or the other, this oven would be a welcomed addition in the kitchen! Another great feature about this item is the induction range. If you haven’t used an induction range before, you’re in for a real treat! The best thing about the induction range is that the stovetop barely gets hot, so when all the little cousins are running through the kitchen, we won’t have to worry about little fingers getting burned.
Speed up the dishwashing time by using a dishwasher that has more space and powerful cleaning so you can skip the prewash in the sink. Toss your dirty dishes into the Samsung Top Control Dishwasher with StormWash and let it work it’s magic while you enjoy holiday movies with the family.
Enjoying family and friends is one of the most important parts of the holiday season. Make sure you utilize products that allow more celebrating and less stressing.
