The 6 best small TVs for the kitchen

Want to keep an eye on the game or your favorite show from the kitchen? It’s not easy, especially if you don’t have an open floor plan. The solution is adding a separate TV to your kitchen space — but there’s not usually a lot of room, especially for electronics that can’t be too close to water or heat.

That’s where small kitchen TVs and displays come in. Many models even have added smart features that can do much more than keep you following the action. Let’s take a look at the best displays for your kitchen!

Note: If you have cable, watching live TV in your kitchen can become difficult. Some kitchens come with a cable connection for an extra box, but it’s not common these days, and routing cable through your walls will be a time-consuming project. Expect to rely on streaming apps to get your kitchen content, including apps that can stream live events that others may be watching elsewhere.

Bring the living room experience to the kitchen

Pros

  • AirPlay and Chromecast support

  • Alexa support

  • Very affordable

Cons

  • Its gaming features probably won’t get much use in the kitchen

If you want to replicate the living room TV experience as closely as possible in your kitchen, the Vizio TV series is your best bet: This 24-inch model offers 1080p resolution and is small enough to be placed on all kinds of counters around the kitchen. It’s also very smart for such a small TV, supporting both AirPlay and Chromecast for easy casting from a mobile device so you don’t have to worry about juggling a controller as well as your cookware.

Speaking of controllers, this Vizio model also supports Alexa so you can give voice commands when your hands are full. You can also bump up the size to 32 inches if you want, but 24 inches is fine for most kitchens and helps you save money, so we’re recommending this size.
