There is not much better than sitting down to a tasty snack for just yourself or with friends. It can be the best way to spend a lovely weekend afternoon or evening, lounging around and eating the deliciousness that you have prepared with all the love and care in your heart. Hopefully you will have a fully equipped kitchen to do this in, but if not, no matter where you are doing the job, it’s important to have a couple of really solid appliances within your reach to help make the job all the easier and enjoyable. They don’t have to be the hottest, most expensive gadgets from Hosbay, but you would do well to find value for money in your search.
For the battered goods
Fish and chips is popular among many of us, and quite often, cooking it requires the use of an commercial electric deep fryer. This, when used in the right way and at the right temperature, should afford you a near perfect batter and outer crust to the fish, while the chips, cooked in a different oil and certainly not the same one as used for the fish, will be golden and crisp for all to enjoy time and time again.
For the shallow pan stuff
You might not want to entirely deep fry the goods you have at hand for your party, and would rather just conduct a shallow fry for something like chicken fillets or some minute steak. Then it is really good to have a quality pan hanging around ready for the taking. The best ones around offer a non-stick surface, which is also easy to clean and the coating won’t flake away over time. It must be long lasting and really should come with a lengthy guarantee and money back policy from the store if needs be.
No frying at all
You might actually just want to use the inside of the oven to bake or grill goods. Then you will need a solid tray, also non-stick like the pan, but with a really wide base so that you can spread the ingredients around. This will allow for a greater surface area of each item to be cooked at the same time and ultimately evenly. You don’t want, say, a potato slice cooked on the outer ring, but then rather hard in the middle. A solid tray, from a reputable brand, will certainly help you avoid this.
For things like stews and soups, you could consider equipping yourself with a nice pressure cooker, which will really help extract all the best flavours from even the cheapest cuts of meat and tired vegetables. They key is the cooking time. It’s a patience game for the most part, so don’t expect to get this done in 10 minutes or so, like you would with the frying or grilling function. No, instead, this is really about the journey as well as the destination. It will take you a bit more time than the rest.
