The modern Chinese kitchen evolved from the modern kitchen in Europe and the United States. The traditional research on the kitchen cooking route started in the United States and mainly focused on the cooking route and the kitchen working triangle. With the integration of Western and Chinese cultures and with the fast-paced lifestyle, Chinese tend to prefer a higher working efficiency of their kitchens. Thus, the traditional kitchen utensils can no longer satisfy their requirements. With the popularity of the kitchen system in kitchen design and the development of smart kitchen furniture, the present kitchen design method cannot meet the demands of modernization in practice. Due to the Chinese special dietary habits, the users often encounter some problems such as the low efficiency of cooking, insufficient food storage and the lack of preparation areas. This paper was designed to review the evolution of the Chinese kitchen from two aspects: the cuisine culture and the cooking route, to explore the basic situations of the modern Chinese kitchen, and to find a higher efficient kitchen work pattern by rearranging the Chinese kitchen layout, thereby providing references to the design of the Chinese kitchen in the future that how the Chinese kitchen layout can adapt to intelligent kitchen furniture.
