Tampa-based company reimagines traditional appliances for a modern generation

Adaptability was essential during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. For many businesspeople, remote work was necessary. As a result, entrepreneurs like Akshay Bhuva, chief executive officer and founder of Kitchenery, used his household kitchen appliances more frequently. The more Bhuva spent time in his kitchen, the more he realized how chaotic the appliance experience could be.

Not only were the chords for different appliances tangled but he felt that his kitchen was not organized. This led Bhuva to think about his prior experience with wireless technology. What if wireless technology could be brought to the kitchen to create a more seamless system?

He realized that if he could develop state-of-the-art wireless power technology, then he could reimagine traditional appliances for the modern era. No doubt this was a tall order, but this is exactly what Bhuva set to do with the launch of his company, Kitchenery.

Technology is at the heart of what Kitchenery does. The Tampa-based company prioritizes creative hardware design and focuses on being an innovator in the wireless power industry. 

“It takes a creative mind to look at something commonplace and reimagine,” explained Andrew Collier, Kitchenery co-founder and director of corporate partnerships. “What’s so exciting is the danger factor with hardware. It’s a tough ask but we are going to deliver.”

Using a combination of an in-house developed smart countertop and various wireless pads attached to Kitchenery-designed appliances, power is transferred from the smart countertop to the appliances. All customers have to do is place their appliances on the smart countertop and the appliances will charge wirelessly, similarly to cordless phone charging.

Customers can also purchase Kitchenery’s Quantum Energy Pad, which can power Kitchenery-designed appliances wirelessly.

“The Kitchenery Quantum Energy Pad can transfer 1200 Watts of wireless energy, which is approximately 30 times more powerful than anything in the consumer electronic device market,” Collier says.

Later this year, Kitchenery will release some of its demo units and projects to launch its first three products, by the first quarter of 2024. These include a blender, an air fryer and its quantum energy pad. Kitchenery strategically selected its initial product line.

“Blenders are the most common kitchen appliance and air fryers are the most in demand,” Collier says. The next products Kitchenery plans to launch include a coffee maker and kettle, an electric pressure cooker and a toaster.
