Fridges that can talk. Tabletop cooking. Automatic composting.

These are all innovations to change the way that consumers look at and interact with food that were on display this year in Las Vegas at CES 2017, the annual Consumer Electronics Show.

Here are six of the food-related ideas that made a splash at CES 2017.

Whirlpool Zera Home Recycler

Indoor composting without the mess, smell or work comes to any kitchen with Whirlpool’s new speedy home food recycling powerhouse. Food scraps go in the counter-height machine and in 24 hours, prime fertilizer comes out.

This machine takes almost any kind of food waste — including meats and dairy, which are verboten in traditional composting — and recycles it into nutrient-rich compost. According to the Zera Home Recycler’s Indiegogo page, the average American family creates 400 pounds of food waste a year. The Zera can recycle about 95% of that.

The Zera won a CES 2017 Best of Innovation Award, and Engadget crowned the Zera its best connected home product.
