Smart Kitchen Appliances and Gadgets
From connected ovens that know when your meal is ready to voice-activated faucets dispensing exactly the amount of water necessary, these Gadgets will make every aspect of cooking and cleaning simpler.
The Instant Pot, with its cult following, stands as a leader among electric pressure cookers. Not only can these versatile appliances cook rice and stews quickly and effortlessly, they can also slow cook, steam, saute, make yogurt cakes egg pasteurize. Their Duo Plus model stands apart from older models by featuring an induction cooking base designed for use on hobs (allowing recipes requiring browning/searing to still be completed using one Device), an improved inner pot designed to distribute steam more evenly across its chamber and an improved sealing ring that makes removal/replacement easier compared with previous models.
Bright, modern display and user-friendly controls combine with 48 Smart Programs to put timed cooking on autopilot, with indicators showing its process and progress. A separate quick release button keeps hands away from escaping steam (great for those intimidated by manual venting), plus there is a spare red sealing ring included if there are any food stains (we recommend pre-soaking with Milton Sterilising fluid prior to use). And finally, an advanced 3rd generation microprocessor monitors pressure, temperature and cooking duration and automatically adjusts heating intensity and duration according to its needs – it truly keeps pace!
