Kitchen Tech cooks up a storm

The April 8th edition of the The Seven O’Clock show in TV3 and the Gadget Buzz segment created a a stir as David Atkinson chatted with Martin King and Lucy Kennedy about  Kitchen Tech & Gadgets.

David looked at the The De’Longhi Multifry with it’s recipe App for Android – how traditional cooking meets connected world and how do you get great sounds in the kitchen, without wires? That’d be the Ultimate Ears Boom Bluetooth Speaker.

But the tech stars of the show were the Drop Connected Scales and The Nutribullet. We gave away one of each on the show, with the Nutribullet competition alone getting over 4,000 interactions on the Seven O’Clock Show’s FaceBook page.


Drop is an Irish product that’s become a global success; a weighing scales that connects to your iPad with measurements and feedback display on the iPad as you prepare and cook one of the hundreds of recipes available in the Drop recipe book.

The Nutribullet is a global phenomenon, 10 million people use these startling pieces of tech to make healthy, positive changes to their lives – so we headed off to TV3 with bags of ‘juicable’ fruit (and yes, some kale) – there was a great reaction to the segment, but the online response for the competition was amazing – with over 4,000 Shares & Likes within a few hours, as people tried to get their hands on one of these coveted gadgets.

This week’s show had a reach of 105,000 people and with a remarkable response online for the social based competitions, it’s obvious tech, is well and truly in the kitchen to stay.
