6 Hi-Tech Appliances That Are Blowing Our Minds

The AI factor goes next-level with these smart appliances, whether you want dirt to disappear while you watch TV or laundry to start while you’re at work.

Caffeine Fix

The red buttons and stainless steel of Wolf’s kitchen ranges also adorn the brand’s programmable coffee maker ($700). And beyond the signature look is a brewing system with high-tech details like an integrated scale. trailappliances.com

Breathe Easy

Air purifiers are sleeker and smarter thanks to Dyson’s Pure Hot and Cool ($750) in blue, black or white. With a HEPA filter, cooling fan and heater, it’s a three-in-one tool (linked to an app, of course) to monitor, adjust and report on air quality. dysoncanada.ca

Brew Master

Craft beer gets micro with the new LG HomeBrew (price on request). Winner of a 2019 CES Innovation Award, this machine has single-use capsules, an optimized fermentation algorithm and a self-cleaning feature, all of which equals small-batch, custom-brewed pints—at home. lg.com

Long-Distance Romance

Whirlpool’s largest-capacity “smart” front-load washer ($1,700) fosters connection from afar… via an app. Load before you go (fill the extra-large detergent dispenser once every 40 loads) and start anytime, anywhere. whirlpool.ca

Clean Machine

The iRobot Roomba i7+ ($1,350) sucks up dirt and deposits it at a disposal base station, using wifi and “smart mapping” technology to navigate on its cleaning expeditions through the nooks and crannies of domestic landscapes. bestbuy.ca

Designer Pick – Sophie Burke

“We like that you get both vintage detailing and a modern (and large!) induction top from this new AGA Mercury induction range ($13,649).”—Sophie Burke of Sophie Burke Design, Vancouver
