How user-centered design is revolutionizing the kitchen experience and driving the demand for health-promoting technologies

The kitchen has always been considered the heart of the home, and in recent years, it has undergone significant changes. The growing interest in balanced health and food, the improvement of technology, and the lack of time to prepare meals have all led to the development of a new generation of kitchen appliances. These devices are designed to help users improve their feeding by providing helpful instruments that make cooking easier, faster, and more enjoyable.

The global kitchen appliance market has seen a significant increase in the demand for products that promote balanced health and food. According to a recent report by Allied Market Research, the market for kitchen appliances is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2021 to 2028. This growth is due to the increasing awareness among consumers regarding healthy eating habits and the benefits of home-cooked meals.

Furthermore, advancements in technology have led to the development of appliances that are more efficient and easier to use. Induction cooktops, for example, are projected to have a market size of over $18 billion by 2026, according to a report by MarketsandMarkets. This is due to their energy-efficient nature and ease of cleaning. Additionally, smart appliances that can be controlled remotely via a smartphone or tablet are expected to become increasingly popular. A report by Research and Markets state a  projected market size of $38.2 billion by 2027.

As the market continues to grow, manufacturers are placing a greater emphasis on user-centered design that is easy to use and visually appealing. According to a report by McKinsey, companies that prioritize design outperform their competitors by 2 to 1. As a result, many manufacturers have been investing more in design services to enhance their products.

Aesthetic meet functionality and ergonomics

We, at fuso design, prioritize user-centered design to create kitchen appliances that are functional and visually appealing. We focus on providing user-friendly experiences to enhance usage. Our designs seamlessly integrate technologies into the environment, and they are clean and neat.
