Kitchen Revolution: 3 New Ways to Cook Your Favourite Meals
Reclaim your cooking time with technology that makes pressure cooking, slow cooking and sous vide your new go-to techniques.
Frying, sauteeing and boiling are tried-and-true methods for cooking a variety of meals, but they all require a watchful eye. Even a minute too long on the stove can result in tougher textures or burnt edges. Here are some devices that take away the guesswork of cooking meat and other dishes, leaving you free to spend more time with your dinner guests (or prepare an extra special dessert).
1. The High-Tech Pressure Cooker
First invented in the 1600s, the pressure cooker has come a long way since then with many programmable features, but its essential advantages remain the same: the trapped steam inside the cooker raises the boiling point of the liquid, which dramatically decreases cooking times for dishes like rice, and perfectly cooks meat to a falling-apart texture.
2. Sous Vide Made Easy
A popular technique that restaurants have used for years is now easy to try at home with an easy stowable piece of technology. Sous vide is a method of cooking that uses a temperature-regulated water bath to cook food to the exact point you desire without worrying about over or under-cooking. It’s great for steaks, eggs, fish and other items whose doneness can be difficult to gauge. All you need is a pot, a sealable plastic bag or glass jar, and a sous vide immersion circulator.
- The Multi-Mode Cooker
Perfect for a broad range of dishes, from slow-cooked stews to sous vide meat, this small wonder also features a removable Dutch Oven that you can use on the stovetop. Advanced programming options include the ability to cook on two different temperatures.
