If you have a ceramic, gas or electric hob then this shouldn’t be too hard to persuade you to go out straight away now and buy this new and fantastic way of cooking. Already induction itself is getting more and more popular but this new idea of having a block area of cooking surface is definately going to be the way forward in years to come.
The concept of induction still seems very new to some people, induction hobs only heat the suface area of the pan and not the area around it which makes them so energy efficient and you can see why so many people are changing to them because not only do they cook food quicker but they are saving £’s in your pocket. Most induction hobs on the market have 2, 4 or 5 rigid zones but now flex-zones are making cooking alot more flexible because in theory you could heat up 16 small pans (and only in theory as i could not think for the life of me someone would want to heat up 16 pans), but im sure you get the message, you have alot more flexibility with the areas that you cooking on.
There are quite a few brands on the market at the moment selling the flex-induction but which to choose is for you to decide, some of which are Neff, Siemens, Bosch and AEG. Each of which have there own different design, also they may refer to flexible induction in different terminology but it is all the same concept.
And so it fell to my turn to contribute to the blog. Of all the thousands of things we could talk about I could not pin it down to one thing, so I decided to make a cup of coffee and BANG! There it was in front if my face – the In Sink Erator Hold & Cold tap. These taps are the latest ‘must have’ trend for the kitchen, producing 98⁰c water at the push of a lever.
Now In Sink Erator say this unit can handle up to 100 cups an hour, not even the caffeine addicted people in our office can get through that much, although I think we may have come close a few times. We have installed one of these in every staff kitchen area and it is the best thing we could have done, they are so much more efficient than a kettle (and 80% more efficient than heating the same amount of water on a hob) and a lot quicker to. Gone are the days of lining up countless cups and refilling the kettle after each boil, each cup is quickly dealt with using speed and efficiency that Starbucks would be proud of.
There are many practical uses for these taps (not just for keeping staff awake) at home they can be used for; preparing rice, pasta, sauces, gravies; washing up or cleaning stubborn stains; warming baby bottles; blanching vegetables; re-hydrating food and many many more.
There are 2 options for the tap the HC1100 which uses filtered Hot and Cold water or the GN1100 which is just filtered Hot water. Both options come in 2 different finishes Polished Chrome or a Brushed Stainless Steel to suit any kitchen. The tap, tank, pipes and filters all come complete with every purchase so no naughty add-ons in order to install and start using the tap.
But don’t just take my word for this you can view it all along with a very smiley lady on In Sink Erators official video.
And so with my blog contribution done, I shall turn back to my still hot half cup of coffee that has been sat waiting patiently for me to finish it off. Thanks for reading!
Sensio have just launched there PowerPod pop up sockets in Stainless Steel. The PowerPod for those of you who dont know, is a set of 3 13amp pop-up plug sockets with 2 USB ports which can be used for charging iPods, iPads, Blackberrys, Other mobile phones etc.
It can be cut into any worktop and it is a great accesory to add to any kitchen or even to add to Office, Study or home computer room. The port can be closed when items are connected and this gives a minimilist effect.
It is ideal for people out there who dont have many sockets on the walls in there kitchen and would save a lot of hassle of having to re-wire a socket. For those of you who have an island unit with a power supply inside the cupboards and find it awkward with no supply on the surface it is a fantastic addition. It has an illuminated on/off switch with fuse protection and a 3 pin plug so it is very easy to fit. It is very stylish with a slimline fit, the cut out in the worktop needs to be Ø 92mm.
