SPONSORED From spiralizers to high-tech blenders, the modern kitchen has more gizmos than Inspector Gadget.
But what about the big-ticket items, such as the oven and stovetop? Like gadgets, these stalwart appliances at ASKO have been constantly evolving and in today’s technology-driven households, even small kitchens can produce a five-star gourmet meal. Here are a few reasons why you should make the upgrade:
Consistent culinary results
Older gas ovens and cooktops deteriorate over time and become unpredictable. Wear and tear of electric coils and elements, along with inaccurate temperature settings can produce inconsistent cooking results, raw dishes or a charred mess. New models take away that risk.
Gone are the days of climbing in your oven with some steel wool and Gumption. Appliances now come with pyrolytic and aqua-cleaning systems, meaning less time is wasted scrubbing, and food is not tainted by the burning remains of last week’s lasagne stuck to the element.
Today’s oven and cooktop developers aim to satisfy everyone, resulting in appliances that are built-in, versatile and adaptable. Older ovens can’t help to choose the menu, automatically adjust settings for staged cooking or store favourite recipes. The latest appliances’ new time-efficient cooking also increases the convenience of homemade meals.
Modern appliances are not only energy efficient; they are also more durable and have more recyclable components. All this equals more money saved through avoiding constant repair costs and giant energy bills in winter when you make all those roasts and soups. Magnetic induction cooktops are at the top of the list when it comes to savings with multi-function capabilities for precise cooking.
Increased menu options
New models contain all the bells and whistles, combining heaters, fans, grills and steam with dozens of automatic and adjustable functions, programs and modes. We may deride a tradesperson who blames their tools, but there is no shame in blaming appliances that don’t have the settings to make your dish!
