IF YOU HAD TO HAVE ONLY THREE APPLIANCES
Remember the stovetop pressure cookers of yesteryear? “Hey!” I hear you say, “who are you calling yesteryear?” I’ll be honest, I still cook that way. Talk about letting off steam! Well, we’ve come a long way since then. These days, our appliance shelves are choc-a-bloc with innovative new electric appliances that steam, fry, roast, cook, braise…. and thirteen other things you can do with food. And some of them are not completely un-sexy, with their curvaceous corners and confident frames. The sheer range of cooking methods we have available at our fingertips these days is incredible. You can make anything for your insatiable needs – simple, sensual and delicious.
INSTANT POT DUO CRISP AIR FRYER
The old steam pot is now also an 8-litre slow cooker and an air fryer. Or you can roast, bake, broil your way to a man’s heart. (Wink) And while you’re at it, why not add a bit of steam to the kitchen? The steaming function is perfect for a quick(y) chocolate pudding. The latest product added to the Instant Pot range has 11 functionalities – that we know of!
INSTANT POT VORTEX AIR FRYER
They say a sense of humour is the best aphrodisiac. I like a dry sense of humour myself, and drying things out is one of my favourite ways to preserve ingredients. Have a bit of fun. Start dehydrating those everyday ingredients and you start looking at everything differently. By dehydrating things, you’re extending the seasons — a process we depend on greatly at Klein JAN. Plus, dehydrating fruit, like strawberries, adds an extra touch of texture to those strawberries and cream.
BREVILLE HEALTHSMART ADJUSTA GRILL
These lean-mean-machines have a reputation for healthy and smart cooking, like grilling those delicious steaks without adding extra oil, but they’ve also got a lot more up their sleeves than chicken breasts and faking braaibroodjies. With a bit of creativity and imagination, you can indulge in the sweet life too. Why not treat yourself to a waffle, dripping with honey, or an ice-cream sandwich?
