Kitchen Products Trends in 2020 According to Experts
Bintu Hardy, Food Blogger of Recipes From A Pantry, shares, “I believe we will continue to see the rise of the air fryer in 2020 with more and more people looking to enjoy their favorite indulgent food but healthier. I think with the start of a new decade, people will continue with resolutions to lose weight and be healthier. I believe these people will become more involved in the keto or paleo diets, taking more control over the food they are putting into their bodies.”
Alex Johnson, Creator of Medmunch, details, “Following on from the popularity of veganism in 2019, plant-based diets are set to become even more popular in 2020. Naturally, this will translate into the kitchen. Aerogarden kits will likely be found on more of these diets as more people look to grow their own food. These devices are essentially indoor gardens that tell you when to water, add nutrients and change the light to replicate the sunlight hours. No dirt or gardening experience is needed. This makes them great for growing fresh herbs cooks can use all year round to add a range of delicious flavors to their arsenal. From dill and parsley to basil and mint, the opportunities are endless. As many of us go to greater lengths to be more environmentally friendly, expect to see more people grow their own herbs to reduce the carbon footprint of their produce.”
