In my kitchen, the pot does the cooking. The Hotpan from Kuhn Rikon cooks with variable heat without making you hot and bothered because it is the pot that cooks almost entirely by itself, carefully preparing meals and keeping them hot for up to 2 hours. What is more, the contemporary design adds a splash of colour to your kitchen.
Versatile and optically spectacular, this Swiss designed and made kitchen piece not only saves you time, but money too as the ‘soft cooking’ method saves up to 60% of the energy used in conventional cooking. The pot itself has a stepped edge with Vapo-Stop and a special profile that seals in an energy-efficient manner. A double-walled insulating lid with gutter effect ensures that condensed steam does not drip onto the table when you remove the lid. Special laser-etched filling levels inside of the pot help you to add the desired amount easily.
The Hotpan can be used with all types of stoves, including induction, and the accompanying melamine shatterproof insulating dish has a non-slip base and can also be used for a variety of purposes, including as a salad bowl, and is dishwasher and freezer proof (although is not suitable for use in the microwave oven). If you ever tire of the colour or want to add to your collection, additional insulating dishes can be purchased, as can other colour co-ordinated kitchen accessories and gadgets. There is also a Hotpan Cookbook available if you need some extra inspiration.
Cooking with the Hotpan couldn’t be simpler. Place the Hotpan without the bowl onto the stove and fill it up to two-thirds full. Cook your dish at ¾ of the highest temperature with the lid on until steam is released. Reduce the heat to the lowest temperature and allow it to cook for 2 – 5 minutes more (table of cooking times is included with your purchase). Remove the Hotpan from the stove and place it in the insulating bowl to finish cooking to perfection on its own (again, sested times are included). Your dish stays hot for up to 2 hours – perfect for serving at the table.
