Whirlpool Presents GreenKitchen in Milan


The Eurocucina kitchen showcase recently took place at Milan Design Week. One of its most impressive displays was the GreenKitchen, an eco-system model developed by Whirlpool.

The company's new futuristic kitchen boasts a remarkable interconnectivity between various appliances. The kitchen not only saves time, it is also energy efficient.

Whirlpool's kitchen features a dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, oven, and other appliances. It has a smart induction cooker that prevents dispersion of heat and has the ability to estimate the amount of water required for cooking. Thus it can save up to 20 percent on energy consumption and 25 percent of the time.

The kitchen recycles water from cooking and filters it in the sink. The dishwater then stores and reuses water, thus being able to save up to 70 percent of water consumption. It would also be interesting to note that water is heated thanks to built-in solar panels.

Useful information on cooking, costs and consumption is displayed by a resource assistant incorporated in the countertop. The device can also program various appliances to perform certain tasks automatically. More images are available here.
