Kitchen taps are packed with more functions and features than ever before, all at once removing our reliance on energy-guzzling kettles and plastic-bottled drinking water. 

They're undoubtedly the future of our kitchens, wiht new research from Grohe showing that 21% of new kitchens installed in the past 102 years featured one, but are you ready to invest? If so, take a look at our quick guide to buying your first smart kitchen tap.

Sage smoking gun, £59.99, Amazon 

A smoking gun is a way to infuse your food with delicious smoky taste without having to cook the food entirely in a smoker. This Sage smoking gun doesn't produce heat, but does allow you to impart meat (and veggies if you so desire) the flavour of woodchips such as applewood and hickory - perfect for steak, ribs and anythign else you might traditionally throw on a barbeque.  

Sous vide stick, £49.99, Aldi

Sous vide is a technique by which meat and vegetables are cooked in a temperature-controlled water bath to achieve perfect results every time. Usually this can be hard to achieve in a standard kitchen, but this sous vide stick from Aldi will transform a 7-15 litre pot into your very own sous vide bath. 

The process works by placing food in vacuum-sealed bags before cooking, helping to retain nutrients, flavour and moisture, so you'll need to purchase a vacuum sealer and bags to go alongside this gadget. 

Entertaining grill, £175, Cuisinart 

Cuisinart Entertaining Grill. Kitchen Gadget

You can recreate this idea at home with the likes of the aptly named Entertaining Grill from Cuisinart - we love the idea of this interactive teppan-yaki style cooking around the table.
