Winning Recipes: taking the summer BBQ indoors

HerCanberra Team

Welcome to the second edition of our Winning Recipes video series, brought to you in partnership with Winning Appliances.

Today—because it’s summer, after all—Winning Kingston’s Culinary Expert, Danielle Brito, is cooking up a mouthwatering barbeque. But we’re not cooking outside, so there’s no need to watch the weather forecast or clean the Weber.

Rather, Danielle is whipping up Miso Chicken, Prawns and Grilled Steak in Winning Appliance’s ASKO display using Induction technology. This genius technology is perfect for achieving the quick high heat necessary for barbequed meats, while responsive and gentle enough for delicate sauces.

Watch the video below and bookmark the recipes.

THE RECIPES

ABOUT INDUCTION COOKING

For years, gas cooktops have reigned supreme as the choice of most chefs—domestic and commercial—because of its precise nature. But induction’s popularity is soaring, due to the sheer ingenuity of the technology and its fantastic cooking abilities.

So, how do induction cooktops work? Basically, they use a magnetic field to heat up the base of compatible cookware (items with a ferrous base). When you place a pan on an induction element, it automatically senses its presence and heats up in response to your control. Conversely, the cooktop will not work if there is no pan on the heating zone, minimising energy waste (and maximising savings for your power bill!).

As you’ll see in the video, some induction cooktops allow you to ‘bridge’ zones, meaning you can use a larger cooking area—super handy when you’re cooking for a crowd! Others have preset temperatures to take the guesswork out of cooking with ‘keep warm’, ‘simmer’ and ‘rolling boil’ options available; and others combine induction and gas for the ultimate in flexibility.

The other advantage is safety. The surface of induction cooktops remains relatively (but not entirely) cool—there will still be some transferred heat from the base of hot cooking equipment, but far less than with electric or ceramic cooktops.

THE BOTTOM LINE

If like me, you think you need induction in your kitchen immediately, it’s worth looking at your options. As with any technology, induction is available at a range of price points. Here are four models worth checking out—but be sure to visit the Winning Appliances Kingston Showroom so their expert staff can help you find the perfect cooktop for you and your family.

You can even attend one of Winning Appliances free cooking demonstrations— with some of the key cooking brands hosting weekly sessions. They’re a great opportunity to watch an expert get the most out of the appliance (not to mention sampling the food!).
