A brand new year, brand new clothes and brand new resolutions, why stick to old obsolete methods of cooking in the kitchen when you have a whole new array of extremely useful equipment readily available in the market. We list out 4 such appliances that you could totally replace some of your old stuff with!
Old pans with non-stick cookware- You spend hours to remove the scrubbing stains of cookware. Besides, you don’t realize that old pots and pans have adored your kitchen shelves for years, so this New Year, it’s time you update the shelves with brand new non-stick pans. As the name rightly suggests, these pans have a Teflon coating that keeps food separated from the bottom while cooking. Hot sets are made for easy cooking and serving. A single cookware set serves all your purposes. Your food is automatically healthier because you use less oil while cooking. However it is absolutely necessary to get a good quality set of non-stick pans and products from wonderchef are our best bet.
Exhaust fan with Electronic chimneys – There is nothing more frustrating than working in a kitchen that isn’t well ventilated. Why stick to the almost obsolete exhaust fans to drive away stale air from your kitchens, when you have an option of electric chimneys. These are more efficient as these are fitted just above the gas range and suck up fumes straight from the source and throw them out via a pipe outlet. The newest systems do more than remove smoke and steam. With a wide variety of electric chimneys available in the market, you can easily find one that’s customized to your needs and price range!
Microwave with an oven – While a microwave is perfect to reheat leftovers their utility is somewhat limited to that. Ovens on the other hand are perfect for baking of any kind. One of the benefits of an oven over a microwave is the temperature – while you can heat up an oven to high temperatures, this functionality is limited in a microwave. Moreover, cooking in a microwave will take longer than in an oven hence shooting up your electricity bills. If you still want to remain a microwave loyalist then make sure you pick one with a convection mode!
Deep frying kadai with an air fryer – We all know how unhealthy deep fried food is, yet we find it so difficult to keep away from them. Once you get an air fryer there is no need to, because you can enjoy the taste of fried food minus all the calories. An air fryer uses fan-forced hot air and a grill plate to heat food through, hence eliminating the need to deep fry food in liters of oil. The rapid air technology in an air fryer circulates hot air with ultimate speed and precision, which results in perfect fried food with consumption of only a tablespoon of oil. Try these recipes made in an air fryer and see the difference yourself.
