You'll get the most use out of a Smart Display in the kitchen

While Smart Displays are useful is just about every room of the house, we've found that the kitchen is the best place to start.

With a Smart Dispaly in your kitchen, you can use it for following step-by-step recipes, watching YouTube videos while unloading the dishwasher, broadcasting messages to other Google Assistant speakers to let the family know that dinner's ready, and much more.

Smart Displays are designed to help you get stuff done even when your hands aren't free, and that's why we recommend placing your Smart Display in the kitchen.

The Lenovo Smart Display is the best fit for it

Not all Smart Dispalys are created equal, and in our testing, we've found that the Lenovo Smart Display is the best fit for use in the kitchen.

It's available in two sizes (8-inches and 10-inches) to accomodate any home, has a durable plastic (plus bamboo on the larger model) design that looks great, and a webcam that can be used to call friends and family using Google Duo.

Perhaps even more important, the speakers are more than loud enough for hearing your songs, podcasts, and TV shows over all your cooking and cleaning.

Buy the Smart Display that's right for your needs

Smart Displays work well in almost every room, but there's something special about having one in the kitchen — especially if the Smart Display in question is the Lenovo Smart Display.
