Jun 14, 2017

Space-saving is key when you are living into your brand new, bite-sized condo. But you don’t have to scrimp on quality cooking thanks to T-Fal’s genius array of multicookers!  

Condo dwellers buckle your seat belts as we take a walk through the wonders of the T-Fal multicooker series. With three amazing versions this will simply help you save counter space, money and time all the while quietly preparing delicious meals in a few simple steps thanks to T-Fal for condos!

About the size of a small toaster or slow cooker, the T-Fal Multicookers have multiple functions and allow you to cook, fry, bake, steam, simmer and more in just one easy appliance – saving you lots of precious countertop space. The T-Fal Multicookers series host the best of multiple other appliances making them a worthwhile investment. Condo spaces often force occupants to get creative with the limited storage and counter space, and as condos get smaller with the housing boom, it is ever more important to make the best use of the space you have available. The T-Fal Multicookers series really maximize the opportunity you have in one unit.

Features

The T-Fal Multicookers feature the big three – convenience, advanced technology and versatility, making them perfect addition. The multicooker offers a set it and forget it type of approach to cooking. You can pre-set the cooking time up to 24 hours in advance, adjust cooking times for meals and it has an automatic warm function to keep meals toasty until you are ready to serve.

The bowl like pot in the appliances make for even heat distribution for quick cleaning, warming, and easy dishwasher safe clean up. This series of multicookers features the new fuzzy logic technology which allows for less monitoring during the cooking process. It automatically adjusts temperature and time for great results.

The versatility of the multicookers goes far beyond words as T-Fal has managed to create one product that houses the capabilities of dozens, which means there are endless meal options available to you and your family and the touch of a finger. Each with a 10 cup capacity, check out the summary below for just a hint of what these machines are really capable of.

The Range

T-Fal 10-in-1 Multicooker: rice/cereal, pilaf/risotto, reheat, oatmeal, slow cook, steam/soup, yogurt, baking, browning, keep warm

T-Fal Intelligent 45-in-1 Multicooker: DIY, dessert, rising bread, plus the functions of the 10-in-1 and many more

T-Fal Intelligent 48-in-1 Multicooker with Induction: including clay pot, congee, sticky rice, texture adjustments, reheat, keep warm, plus all of the above and many more.

Available in major retailers and online, the multicookers range in price from $99 to $339 CDN but they are more than worth it. Visit them online for more information and to browse through tried and tested chef favourite recipes that can be made with the various multicookers.

Here’s just a selection of recipes to show you the variety of recipes the multicookers are capable of. Thai Red Curry Chicken, Yogurt with Jam, One Pot Penne Bolognese (see below for recipe), Panna Cotta, Dark Chocolate Cake (see below for recipe), Almond Chicken Stir Fry, Mac and Cheese, Chicken Mushroom rice, Taiwanese Braised Beef Noodle Soup, and many more, plus each recipe comes with the difficulty level, time it takes, and the cost to the meal.

The best part of the recipes is scrolling through the brief instructions because the multicooker takes care of so much. The One Pot Penne Bolognese for example, would include browning the meat, draining fat, sautéing vegetables, adding paste and then simmering until ready, plus finishing right on time to add the fresh cheese to hit the table, however, with the multicooker the instructions are simplified. Add a few ingredients and meat, select brown, once cooked, cancel brown and select slow cook and indicate time. Once it’s cooked, the multicooker automatically switches to warm and that’s it, enjoy when you’re ready.

How it Fits into Life

Having such a simple device is also super convenient for young couples and parents who don’t have that much spare time. Young parents can make baby food at home and know exactly what they are feeding the baby. The ease of use to steam foods, including yogurt – make the series a great choice to get started. Again, with the set it and forget it use, you can turn the cooker on and it will turn off when done and then keep warm until you are ready.

The size of the bowl allows for meals that host up to 6 people, depending on what you’re whipping up, allowing you to prep the meal before and set the cooker and then actually enjoy the get together without having to worry about living in the kitchen. With a little prep ahead of time, you can cook the starter, main and desert only missing minutes of valuable family or friend’s time. Overall, any of the The T-Fal Multicookers would be a great addition to any home just for its versatility, compactness and convenience.
