I have had fun this week testing out some kitchen appliances from SEVERIN, courtesy of Homespares. I’ve joined them in their Great Big Oven Ban Challenge in hopes that people would be “encourged to think outside of the box when it comes to cooking methods, and to dig out those appliances they may have used once and then shoved to the back if the cupboard and actually get their use out of them!”
First up this week is the absolutely amazing Induction Hob. I already know that this is going to be my favourite appliance. It is genius! It heats up twice as fast as my gas hob and offers such great control whilst cooking. It isn’t too bulky, so easy to clean and would make an essential item for anyone who wanted to cook whilst on holiday, in a caravan/boat or for someone who lived in a small flat/room or student housing. It is even worth having if (like me) you just need an extra ring on the hob when cooking your family feasts. You need to use stainless steel or cast iron cooking pans otherwise the hob wont turn on (which I thought was very clever) and then you are free to boil, steam, fry, blanch, stew and sear anything you like. My friend would have loved this whilst she waited for her new kitchen to be fitted and was without a hob for weeks!
I decided that since this appliance was so quick and convenient to use, I should make something equally as quick to cook on it. This chilli is so easy to make and it tastes great. You could cook up a pan of wholegrain rice and then heat this up afterwards in 5 minutes. Serve with a side salad and you have a complete fuss free meal suitable for vegans, vegetarians and those following a gluten free diet.
