Whirlpool has come out swinging at this year's CES with a slew of connected kitchen appliances and an app that will be integrated with Amazon's Dash Replenishment Service. It's actually one of many appliance brands to have the integration this year, and it's doing so with its brand new Smart Kitchen Suite. Simply hook up your Amazon account to the Whirlpool app, and you can reorder a new batch of, say, detergent whenever your supply is low.

Speaking of that Smart Kitchen Suite, Whirlpool is also revealing a new set of appliances for 2016, which consists of the Smart Front Control Range, the Smart Dishwasher and the Smart French Door Bottom Mount Refrigerator. Using the aforementioned Whirlpool app, you can do things like set a reminder for meal prep an hour before dinner, have it recommend recipes for you based on nutritional goals, and even get mobile alerts for preheat and cook times.

Last but not least, Whirlpool is also announcing a new washer and dryer that'll let you make a donation to Habitats for Humanity every time you do a load of laundry. The idea here is that you can set wash and dry times with the app, and as you do so, it'll gently prompt you to give a small amount of your choosing to donate to the charity. The feature was already announced last year, but 2016 is when the appliances will finally start shipping.
