Do you have a kitchen enthusiast or a home chef on your Holiday buying list this year? Have you been at a loss as to what to get them because it seems like they already have everything in terms of the latest kitchen gadgets and gizmos for their kitchen already and you haven’t a clue as to what else to get for them?
Then perhaps the Breville Steam Zone may just be the thing you are looking for. The Steam Zone is a precision steam cooker that has two separate cooking compartments. This means you can steam up your meat or fish and your veggies all in one go, without worrying about contamination. Say you want to cook a nice steamed chicken and veggie dish. No one wants to have to worry about salmonella because things weren’t cooked to the proper temperature and the chicken came into contact with your asparagus, now do they?
The Steam Zone is super convenient. It is a countertop device, and while you are steaming your foods in it, your stove is not being used for this purpose. This means you can either give your stove a break for the night, or use it to prepare other things.
The Breville Steam Zone has a unique shape so that it is set up perfectly to cook a whole fish. This means this is a great gift for the angler in the family as well. You simply place the whole fish on the large steaming tray and it will steam up to perfection in just a short-term to be served at your table.
You can also use the two steaming baskets and cook two different foods at two different cooking times, all without having to have multiple steamers going in your kitchen. Gone are the days of having to cook your meats and your veggies on separate appliances just to ensure proper cooking. This little baby does it all by pressing the Split Zone button.
Breville prides itself on providing appliances and devices for precision cooking for the home chef. They strive for perfection and deliver the products that people want at a cost that won’t break the bank.
When you cook food at a high temperature on an oven or grill, the outside will come to temperature quickly, while the inside still isn’t done yet. But Breville’s precision cooking technology makes use of two principles, precise temperature and time.
By integrating these, they can ensure a quality product that is going to cook your food just right, every time, without a ton of babysitting like you would need in the oven to keep flipping and rotating and turning. When you are getting ready to entertain for the holidays, who has time for that? Am I right?
Breville’s Steam Zone has set it and forget it convenience. You just put your food in, set the time and temperature, and off you go. You come back when it is finished and find a perfectly cooked dish while you had time to make all your other preparations.
The Breville Steam Zone is available at a lot of your favorite department stores, as well as some of the higher end culinary stores, such as Williams Sonoma. Now, you know if they are carrying it, it must be a good, high-quality product that is worth considering this gift-giving season.
