Tips on how to select healthy cookware for the kitchen

Tips On How To Select Healthy Cookware For The Kitchen

When people think of healthy gourmet cookware the first thing that comes to mine is it has to be nonstick, which does drastically cut down on the amount of oil and fat that you need to use when cooking.

But how the food is being cooked is only one aspect of what is classified as healthy cookware. Other factors that need to be considered that are also within your control is the quality of the pots and pans you choose.

Also choosing the right cookware for the job is important to. For instance a cast iron skillet is a great choice when browning meats, but is a poor choice when cooking with acidic foods like tomatoes. Cast iron and also carbon steel will react to these types of acidic foods and will definitely alter the taste of the food you are preparing.

This does not mean that other types of cookware could not be classified as healthy cookware. Some good choices to consider would be stainless steel, glass and even enamel coated cast iron. Healthy Gourmet Cookware is made to be durable. It is constructed out of the finest materials. You don’t need to spend a lot of money when looking for this type of cookware.

However what makes it healthy is not necessarily just the cookware you chose but also the cooking process and controlling the amount of fat that goes into the dish.

So if you want to prepare healthy meals for yourself and family it really comes down to two important points to remember. Choosing the right type of cookware and controlling the quality of ingredients and amount of fat.

Nu wave oven is the real deal

NU Wave Oven is the «Real Deal!»

I bought my husband a NuWave oven about a year ago for his birthday. We have used it almost everyday since then. The claims about being able to cook frozen fish, etc. without thawing are true.  We’ve also cooked a couple of small turkeys in it and they turned out great. 

It’s true that the oven’s top traps moisture, but I found a way to solve that problem. Get 4 «framing nails», which have two heads on them.  Drill two holes in the plastic handles of the oven, as far apart as practical. Insert the nails into the holes. The bottom nail head sits on the base while the plastic dome lid sits on top of the second nail head, which provides an opening all the way around the oven dome of about 1/2 inch.  Do this for fixing pizza or crisping foods.

We bake breaded, air-fried okra in the oven.  It also does a great job of reheating bread or frozen potato products.

We read on-line before we bought the oven that using the wire rack accessory to hold the dome lid at a canted angle is not a good practice, as some folk’s lids cracked when doing that.  Instead, we sit the dome lid on the counter top and have had no trouble with it. 

The oven is very marginal for any type of baking of muffins, etc. as the tops brown but the bottom do not and the muffins have to be inverted to complete the baking process.

I would say that on a satisfaction scale of 1-10 we are at least at a 9 or better!  We could recommend that folks give the NuWave oven a try as it is:

  • Compact and can just sit on the kitchen counter
  • Does not need any time to warm up
  • Bakes, broils, and convection — all at the same time
  • Is easy to cleanup

Hulk hogan grill best grill to hit the market

HULK HOGAN GRILL — Best Grill To Hit The Market!

It’s «Hulkamania» all over again! Hulk Hogan is famous for ripping his yellow shirt off in the ring and no one will be able to top his career, but he is back and this time ripping the wrapper off of some steaks. Hulk did his thing in wrestling and showcased his skills, now he is trying to show his grill skills. This year the Hulk Hogan Grill is on pace to be the #1 best selling product. My wife begged me for the Hulk Hogan Grill for a long time needless to say I got it for her.
When it came to our door about 3 days later I have to admit I was really ready to try it out myself and I have got to say that the Hulk Hogan Grill really does a great job! Over the next week we cooked everything from frozen Omaha steaks, fresh fish, and vegetables. My wife even baked me some perfect cookies on it and waffles for breakfast. She loves it! I think the ability to cook cookies on the Hulk Hogan Grill is what sold her in the first place.
I have to say the that the George Foreman has been in the cabinet since we got the Hulk Hogan Grill. A cool feature on the Hulk Hogan Grill is the hidden grease tray and it doesn’t make a huge mess when cooking red meat like the Foreman’s grease tray. I’ll tell you what, I don’t even like seeing all that nasty grease leaking out of my food before I eat it so the hidden grease trap is a really nice feature. I like for my family to eat as healthy as we can and the Hulk Hogan Grill makes it easy. I noticed too, that the Hulk Hogan Grill takes way more fat out of food than the Foreman.
The grill comes with: two grill plates, one skillet plate, the «Hogan Knows Grilling» cookbook and a 60 day money back guarantee if the Hulk Hogan Grill is not for you. We love ours and use it everyday so we won’t be sending ours back. It’s so easy to use, just throw a steak or two on it and in 20-25 minutes they are done! The Hulk Hogan Grill can do so much. You can use it as a grill(obviously), cook pizzas, bake cookies, waffles, and grilled sandwiches.
A couple of other fantastic features that the Hulk Hogan Grill has are the fold out double top cooking surface that you can cook a few of different items on. You can set the grill plates to different temperatures from 210 degrees to 450. Also, clean up for the Hulk Hogan Grill is a breeze. Just put the cook plates into the dishwasher and walk away, it take less than a minute.
I would highly suggest the Hulk Hogan Grill to anyone. I think it is the perfect fit into any home. You can cook anything that you crave on this grill and the price is actually affordable. They say Hogan knows best and I believe it!

The perfect roast chicken

The Perfect Roast Chicken

Nothing beats an expertly roasted chicken, does it? It’s the perfect Sunday lunch, and will easily feed the entire family. What’s more, the delicious smell of slowly roasting chicken will fill the entire house — perking up everybody’s appetite. Here’s how to cook the perfect roast chicken.

The Key:

The key to perfection lies in these 3 things…

  1. What goes inside the chicken
  2. What goes outside the chicken
  3. Keeping it moist

Start by preparing a roasting tray. Line it with tinfoil, being sure to leave plenty of foil sticking out so you can completely cover the top of the chicken.

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius (340 F).

Assuming the chicken is plucked, and the innards removed, it’s time to prepare the inside of the chicken. Your filling has 2 jobs to do…

  • Flavour the meat from the inside out
  • Keep the chicken moist

I like to make up a mixture that includes freshly crushed (with the flat blade of a knife) garlic pieces, chopped pieces of either lemons, oranges or tomatoes, mixed herbs, paprika and pepper. Sometimes I chop up a chilli and add that too. Mix it together, and stuff it into the chicken. Use one of the lemon, orange or tomato pieces to plug the hole.

Now place the chicken upside down on the tinfoil in the roasting tray. Coat the bottom of the chicken with olive old, and sprinkle of mixed herbs, salt and paprika. You might also add chilli flakes if you like a little extra kick.

Turn the chicken right-side up, and repeat. Be generous with the oil, as this helps to keep the chicken nice and moist.

Cover the chicken thoroughly with the rest of the tinfoil. Before sure to leave ways to unwrap the tinfoil easily, so you can check the chicken later on.

Place the chicken in the oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes (longer for a large chicken). Check the chicken is done by pricking a flesh part of the chicken, and noting the colour of the juices. If the juice runs clear, it’s cooked.

You can brown the chicken further by re-coating it with oil or butter, and cooking for another 10 minutes without recovering.

NOTE: I get my cooking tips from Chef Richard Brooks, who runs this excellent contract catering company.

Choosing the right kitchen knives

Choosing The Right Kitchen Knives

Choosing The Right Kitchen Knives

If you do a lot of cooking, it’s important to have a complete set of high quality knives on hand. High quality, doesn’t mean expensive!

There are many different types of knives now out on the market that perform particular tasks, but the following are the ones that every kitchen should have on hand.

Paring Knife for paring and slicing fruits, vegetables and other small foods. I feel that every kitchen should have 3 nice quality sharp paring knives. Why three? So that you can get others to help you in the kitchen during food preparation when you are entertaining a crowd.

Utility Knife for a variety of tasks. You should have 1-2 utility knives on hand. Make sure they are high quality and durable as they do heavy duty jobs.

Chef’s Knife for chopping food. In my opinion, the sharper the better!

Poultry Knife for deboning and slicing chicken, turkey, duck and other fowl.

Bread Knife for slicing breads, rolls, bagels and muffins. Your bread knife should be long and have a serrated blade.

You should also invest in a nice knife sharpener and you should sharpen your knives on a weekly to bi-monthly basis depending on how often you are using them.

Knife Storage Rack for storing all your knives in. Knives should never be stored in a kitchen drawer, not only does that damage the blades but that is how accidents can happen. I have one set of knives stored in a knife block and another set of knives are stored (magnetized) to a knife rack that is attached to the inside of my pantry door.

These days when you buy high quality knives, they come with a nice warranty. Keep all your receipts and documentation for your purchase just incase you need to get it replaced in the future. Investing in high quality knives will last you a lifetime!
