When it comes to cooking, the meals you can make in your oven are limitless. From crispy pizzas to succulent roasts, light and bright fairy cakes to comforting apple pies, there are a number of ways you can cook up mouth-watering dishes in the kitchen with the right oven.
We're celebrating aspiring cooks and food-lovers everywhere by taking a look at how advancements in cooking technology can benefit a wide variety of some of your favourite foods and shake up your cooking repertoire.
For baking: Even Baking
The last thing you want after making the mixture for that delicious cake recipe you’ve been craving is to have an uneven batch of cookies, cupcakes, or muffins. Even baking technology makes the fan in the oven circulate the air more evenly, to help provide a consistent cooking temperature, helping you to bake with confidence.
For roasting: Fan Cooking
Think of your oven’s fan as your best friend when it comes to cooking your Sunday roast. The oven fan ensures that your roast potatoes and joints of meat are cooked thoroughly and evenly. So how does it work? Air is drawn to the element; the fan heats the air before evenly distributing it around the oven cavity. Not only does it mean more even cooking but, it’s faster too, saving both time and energy.
For defrosting on demand: Defrost Function
Don’t simply rely on a microwave to defrost your desserts, or leaving it out for hours to thaw. If your oven is fitted with a defrosting function, the oven fan circulates the air around the oven, removing the moisture from your food. So not only does this speed up the defrosting process, it’s also completely hygienic and there’s less mess. This function is the perfect answer to avoiding any melted cream escaping from those difficult-to-defrost cream cakes, cheesecakes and cakes with icing.
For magnificent meat: Slow Cooking
No need for a slow cooker with this fantastic built-in feature! Cooking meat at a low temperature for longer is the perfect way to prepare that tender joint with minimum effort. This slow cook function slows down the cooking process enough to fully preserve the juice and flavour of the meat, but also holds on to those all-important and essential nutrients. So if you’re looking for a hearty meal with the family – a slow cooked casserole is ideal!
With the right oven technology, your cooking potential is limitless. Not only can it expand your cooking repertoire, it can make your life easier, save you time when cooking meals for the family, and put the enjoyment back into cooking.
