4. Amazon Echo

No, Alexa can’t actually grill your hamburger. However, there are Alexa skills that can give you helpful tips for cooking your own burger. Grilling Time and Heat Settings can tell you whether to put your burger on indirect or direct heat, as well as what temperature to burn your coals at. The Grill Master skill can recommend ideal grilling temperatures, while Grill Thermometer taps into USDA guidelines.

Barbecues are fun — cleaning up after them is not. Why not let a robot do it? Grillbot is a $100 whirling mass of brushes that scrubs your grill and can eradicate even the hardiest masses of grease. Once you’re done grilling, put Grillbot inside, press a button and presto. The Grillbot comes in various colors and with its own case.
