Essential stainless steel kitchen equipment
Every kitchen is filled with all sorts of cookware and utensils, but how can you know what works best for your delicious creations? There is one underlying principle that professional chefs swear by, and it's perfect for the everyday cook too - stainless steel. Stainless steel can be found all over the kitchen - think pots and pans, cutlery, whitegoods, benches and beyond. It has good reason to be there too! The hardy alloy is famous for its durability, sleek look and lengthy lifespan. What's more, stainless steel won't leech into your food and does not impart any flavor or create any chemical reactions with food. Here we'll take a look at why stainless steel is the best material for a selection of CRISTEL products.
OUT OF THE FRYING OAN, ONTO THE PLATE!
No kitchen would be complete without a good frying pan. Stainless steel frying pans are ideal for browning meats. It is important to remember that you can't brown anything in non-stick coated cookware.
Stainless steel is the only way to go for beautifully browned meats, and make sure to use the simple water droplet test to know when your frying pan is at the perfect temperature to start cooking. CRISTEL's frying pans have been designed with a special heat-diffusing base to ensure even, effective cooking every time.
A KITCHEN ESSENTIAL - THE SAUCEPAN
Saucepans, the cornerstone of any kitchen worldwide.
So why cut corners and compromise on quality of a product used across kitchens worldwide on a daily basis? Stainless steel is very durable so you won’t need replace your regularly-used pots from wear and tear.
These elements combined make the stainless-steel saucepan your best ally when it comes to cooking sauces, vegetables, soups, rice, pasta and much more.
EASTERN COOKING - THE WOK
Woks are essential to Asian cooking and have become more and more popular in kitchens worldwide over the past few decades.
Get inspired with the fresh flavors and delicious combinations of meats and vegetables that are found in Eastern cooking. Wok-cooking requires a high temperature in order to preserve the color, flavor and nutritional value of the ingredients.
Thanks to the layer of aluminum sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel, our stainless-steel woks allow heat to spread evenly throughout their body. What’s more, the wok’s tapered shape is ideal for heating food evenly with little oil.
THE PERFECT ROAST
For the perfect Sunday roast to wow the family, the first step is to get yourself a top-quality stainless-steel roaster.
Oven dishes and roasters can tend to contain harmful products such as plastics and aluminum which can break down with wear and tear and get into your food. Stainless steel is your safest and most reliable option.
Furthermore, a specially designed roaster includes a supporting rack to elevate your cut of meat or whole foul. A CRISTEL stainless steel roaster will serve you well over the years and will cook your meat, fish and vegetables perfectly every time.
A VERSATILE COMPANION - THE STOCKPOT
Stockpots are a fabulous addition to any kitchen and can be used for a number of delicious creations.
They are perfect for stewing, steaming shellfish, boiling vegetables and meats, making porridge and jams and, of course, preparing unbeatable homemade stock!
Stockpots are deep and high and can contain large quantities which is great when preparing in advance.
