An under cabinet TV can be a great addition to any kitchen, helping aspiring cooks and bakers follow their favorite chefs to learn new recipes or perfect techniques. While many people have moved away from having a traditional television in their kitchen, opting instead to use smartphones and tablets, new smart displays give you the best of both mobile devices and traditional televisions. Many smart displays have Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant built in so you can use your voice to search the web for recipes, pull up instructional videos on YouTube, or start your favorite playlist on Spotify with just a word. Many also have a suite of preloaded, popular apps like Netflix, Pandora, and Prime Video so you can watch your favorite shows and movies right out of the box.
The more budget-friendly models use Chromecast or other screen mirroring software that allows you to share photos and videos from your mobile device or smart TV with your new smart display. Some smart displays, like the Echo Show and Facebook Portal Plus allow you to make video and voice calls to your friends and family; perfect for when you need to ask your mom about her secret pecan pie recipe or make weekend plans with friends before rushing to work. Most smart displays and under cabinet TVs are compatible with other smart home devices like Nest and Ring video doorbells and even Hue smart light bulbs so you can use one device to control everything in your smart home network. Whether you’re a master chef or amateur baker, check out our top picks below to see which under cabinet TV is best suited for your kitchen.
