ABC News was also covering CES and highlights two cool appliances including an interactive induction cooktop that will enable the user to simultaneously cook and bring up recipes to display on the cooktop without burning their hands.

Finally, CNET provides a rundown of what they saw, including appliances that weren’t “smart,” but utilize new technologies to get your dishes cleaner and your wine colder. Can you think of a new technology that you’d like to see incorporated into your home appliance?
