Five Things You Need To Know About Combination Microwaves
Creativity and busy modern lifestyles are two things which don’t always go hand in hand together, especially when it comes to food preparation and the kitchen. Work commitments, family, early mornings and late evenings all take their toll on our time, what precious little we have left is rarely enough to plan and prepare a conventional freshly cooked, healthy meal for ourselves and our families...
Fortunately there is a solution, Panasonic’s range of combination microwaves have been designed to offer all the convenience of a conventional Panasonic microwave, but with more; more options, more flexibility and more potential, as well as an impressive range of cooking methods to cater for everyone, from novices to the most discerning culinary aficionados.
Long gone are the days when the traditional microwave was used solely to reheat pre- prepared meals, or to defrost food ready for the oven or grill. Modern combination microwaves form an essential part of the home kitchen, with the capacity to cook food in an array of styles quickly and conveniently.
Here are five things you need to know about combination microwaves:
Combination microwaves use microwave energy, much like a traditional microwave does, but combined with the added benefits of fanned hot air, making grilling, roasting and baking easier and quicker than before with convection hot air giving that perfect roasted finish. Add steaming functionality to the mix and you have versatility that can’t be beaten, all in a single appliance a fraction of the size of a full-size gas or electric oven.
For steam oven recipes with a healthier flavour, steaming is simple with the Panasonic steam Combination oven and its turbo steam feature, injecting steam from the boiler directly into the steam oven, allowing you to craft nutritious and naturally flavoured dishes for a healthier lifestyle.
The Panasonic combination microwave range has been designed to cater for a wide range of budgets, with prices starting at less than you might think. It might be useful to bear in mind how quickly an oven-microwave combo will start to save you money. Gone will be the days when your conventional gas or electric oven spends its afternoons slowly roasting meats; that will take a fraction of the time in a combination microwave. If you enjoy baking then you can achieve the perfect finish for your cakes, bread or desserts quicker and more cost-effectively.
Forget all about gas marks, conversions and wondering of your food is cooked thoroughly and safely with pre-set programs specially designed to remove the guesswork from your cooking and give you peace of mind. There are also models in the Panasonic range with built-in sensor technology giving you perfect results every time. For younger and pickier eaters, there is even the pre-programmed junior menu, simply enter the weight of the food and let the microwave combo do the rest, pre-programmes for children include pureed fruits and vegetables, vegetable fries, pasta bakes and more.
A long standing concern regarding microwaves in the past has always been that of space, or rather lack of space. You may well be thinking that it is great to be able to roast, bake, steam and grill in an oven microwave combo, but will you be able to fit in things such as casserole dishes or trays with sizeable joints.
Fortunately each model in the Panasonic combination microwave range is designed with optimum interior space. With the Panasonic NN-CF853WBPQ Premium Combination Oven boasting an impressive capacity of 32litres and generous interior dimensions capable of handling larger loads with ease. With even the entry level models such as the 3-in-1 Combination Microwave Oven NN-CT56JBBPQ enjoying a generous capacity of 27 litres, whichever model you choose, space won’t be an issue to cause concern.
The Panasonic combination microwave range offers you the perfect chance to unleash your culinary flair and stretch your boundaries. You can redefine what you thought a microwave oven could do, with an appliance with the potential to do much more. Cooking with a range of heat sources working together, pre-set programs for peace of mind and a range of features and functions empowering you to try new things, discover new dishes and make the most of the convenience and user friendly functions at your fingertips.
Whichever model from the Panasonic combination microwave range you choose, it will be a decision you’ll look back on gladly. When you are standing beside those who also enjoy the convenience, the ease and the sheer flexibility of combination microwave cookery, you might even wonder exactly why you waited so long.
