If there is something that every kitchen lover appreciates is the discovery of new gadgets. Some, the geeks among which I include myself, enjoyed an afternoon of shopping in the kitchen and home section of some department stores much more than in any other. But, What are the pots with which we dream the real kitchens?
The universe is full of great inventions and, honestly, answering this question is complicated for me. It is not that I am a capricious person, but when it comes to kitchen utensils, there are so many things that I feel like having that I see no end to my desire. However, today I'm going to focus on the nine pots with which we dream the real kitchens or, at least, the ones I dream of.
The top three pots with which we dream the real kitchens
Dreaming costs nothing, so I start big and start with the appliances that I would love to have in my kitchen. One of them, without hesitation, is an "aga". This term so unusual for us is very common in Anglo-Saxon countries. An aga is a kitchen / oven made of cast iron that It has, in a single piece of furniture, several furnaces and fires.
The one in the photo in question is composed of five ovens, each one of them with a different control as far as its function is concerned. This provides total independence when cooking, allowing us to roast a chicken, bake a cake, cook a lamb at low temperature and heat the dishes, all at the same time.
As for the surface, it works the same way. It has three different areas in which to keep our dishes warm, poach or cook over high heat. A marvel of machine that, surely, would our everyday life in the kitchen much simpler. Not to mention its attractive design, with a wide range of colors that ensures that there is an aga for each kitchen.
If I had to settle for something more affordable, an alternative when it came to the oven would be any of the steam ovens that Miele currently markets. With multiple functions: steam cooking, hot air plus, small and airy grill, intensive cooking and vault, hearth or both at the same time.
It has automatic programs for steaming, roasting and baking more than 150 dishes and allows you to prepare complete menus, with automatic programming of the order of introduction of the ingredients. Memorize up to 20 own programs, which would mean saying goodbye to all those cooking notes and recipes that we accumulate over time.
After a good kitchen and a good oven, Samsung Smart Fridge is on my list of dream pots. A Smart fridge that informs of your needs by an outer panel. Inside there are hidden cameras connected to the monitor that review the content without opening the door and the cold escapes.
We can even see it from our mobile thanks to the official application, something that comes from pearls if we are in the supermarket and do not remember if we have butter in the fridge or not. But the best thing is that the interface is able to place orders for products that are about to run out. A wonderful invention do not you think?
Six other dream pots
Changing third and lowering a bit of the clouds, other pots that are the dream of all kitchens are those gadgets and kitchen utensils that facilitate the tasks of preparing ingredients and cooking recipes. They are affordable dreams, less scandalous and easier to accommodate in our kitchens.
I get a lot of attention the mandolins, with them the tedious task of laminating vegetables and vegetables disappears. Over the years I have tried several models and none of them has convinced me. It is also true that I have never invested enough in this type of tool, big mistake on my part.
I currently do not have my own mandolin, but I use the professional Bronze mandolin at work and I can tell you that it is a real wonder. It's my mandolin dream come true. Functional, resistant and capable to laminate in plain or wavy all kinds of vegetables. It is the Ferrari of the mandolins.
Fresh homemade pasta is infinitely superior to commercial and it costs no work to make it at home. To do this, we need a good quality pasta machine. The Marcato Atlas Cromo is the one of a lifetime and there is no Italian home where it is not present. It has a beautiful design, smooth and elegant lines, and is very versatile.
I feel the need to complement it with a clothesline for fresh pasta. Because, if not, where am I going to hang those noodles that I already see stretching in the machine? It's a gadget very useful and very practical when storing, it is reduced to nothing once folded.
And I still dream of affordable and adaptable kitchen pots to my real world. That is why I cannot fail to mention the Nordic Ware aluminum molds, specifically the Heritage Bundt that has stolen my heart for a long time. Its high quality, its careful design and the results that are achieved in it makes it very appreciated by pastry lovers.
A whim, but not any one but one that is very topical, is the food smoker. I have found it from the Nordic Ware brand, which is the one that shows the image, but there are many others. Cook at home fish, meat or vegetables with the delicious flavor that smoked gives It is another of my dreams and that of many kitchens.
And, to close the section today, which is not why my last dream pot, I leave you with my dream cocotte of Le Creuset. A resistant, powerful pot that gives a very special flavor to everything that is cooked in it. With a design that falls in love, in a wide range of colors, shapes and sizes, and well worth being moved from the oven or hob to the center of the table.
The list of pots with which we dream the real kitchens It is long and increases as we discover new inventions. Therefore, next week we will return with more surprising suggestions. Until next Wednesday!
