Dyson Cinectic

LAS VEGAS -- It's been a busy week for home appliances here at CES 2015, with all sorts of shiny new tech for convention-goers to ooh and aah over. The CNET Appliances team has been right in the thick of it, hunting down the can't-miss appliances of CES, both large and small.

Let's start with the finer points of filterless vacuuming. The beauty pictured here is Dyson's newest upright, which features a design that breaks down dirt and dust to the microscopic level, eliminating the need for filters.

Samsung Dual Door Flex Duo Range

The oven-splitting functionality of Flex Duo has played well for Samsung over the past few years -- this year,  it's introducing a model with a hinged door. That lets you keep the divider in and use the top half exclusively, yielding energy savings and faster preheats.

Whirlpool had new laundry appliances to share, too, including a new smart set that'll work with Nest to save you energy.

Anova Touch Wi-Fi Sous Vide Circulator

Anova was a popular booth at Tech West, which probably had something to do with that team's penchant for feeding people salmon and steak. In addition to showing off the Bluetooth-powered Anova Precision Cooker, pictured to the left, Anova announced that a new Wi-Fi model with a full color touchscreen is coming this summer.

Panasonic High Power Blender

Over at the Panasonic booth, several other small appliances were on display. New for 2015, the Panasonic MX-ZX2000 High Power Blender is a potential new rival for Vitamix, with 1,500 watts and a 19,000rpm motor packed under the hood.

FirstBuild ChillHub

Why settle for an ordinary refrigerator when you could have one that boasts computer-like smarts and accessories? Inside the FirstBuild ChillHub you’ll find four USB ports which allow you to add future upgrades for enhanced performance. For instance a small scale, called the Milky Weigh, keeps track of milk status in real time. The fridge also links to Wi-Fi networks plus talks to its iOS mobile app.

Panasonic Genius Prestige Plus Microwave with Cyclonic Wave Technology

Panasonic's also planning a 2015 upgrade for its Genius Prestige line of inverter tech microwaves. The new model feature a few design upgrades, along with a new Cyclonic Wave feature that rotates the inverter, sending the microwaves spiraling out over your food for cooking that's supposedly much more even.

Picobrew Zymatic

Brewing beer at home isn’t easy. Here to help is the Picobrew Zymatic, a countertop automated beer-making machine. Connect the contraption up to a clean water supply, electrical power, then fill it up with grain, hops, and other spices. Then the Zymatic will automatically create the base, unfermented, beer precursor. The gadget will even help you transfer your pre-beer liquid to a keg for proper fermentation.

A few steps above basic programmable coffeemakers is the Smarter Wi-Fi Coffee Machine. This drip java brewer connects to smartphones and tablets to whip up pots remotely, push alerts when the coffee is ready, and keeps tabs of water tank status.
