Dining out on breaks has been a usual thing for most people, especially to those who haven’t got enough time to prepare their food in the morning. Kids get their meals in the school canteen from their allowance money, while young adults like college students and working professionals get to choose their next meal from their favorite eatery, fast food, or a newly opened restaurant that fancies their curiosity.
Home-cooked meals though are making a comeback especially to those who would want to save more from buying their meals from the cheapest eatery to the fanciest casual dining place. It is also widely believed that bringing in home-cooked meals for lunch is healthier because every ingredient is handpicked. It has also become popular to health buffs because they can plan out their own diet program and count the calories, while getting specific nutrients that they need.
Midea, the world’s leading consumer appliances manufacturer, offers a solution in creating home-cooked meals with their lineup of cookers that make preparing home-cooked dishes easy and turn the freshest ingredients into not just delicious meals, but healthier as well. Their home solutions have always been surprisingly friendly in more ways than one. They are known for their ease of use, finishing every chore faster than usual, which gives people more time for themselves and the whole family. Midea products are also easy on the pocket and its features make it safe around kids. One of Midea’s brand ambassadors and an avid fan of Midea’s Induction Cooker, Chef Rob Pengson shares that “Midea’s Induction Cooker is top level technology which is great for cooking and it is very efficient because it doesn’t waste energy.”
Some people might think that induction cookers would be very costly on the electric bill, but unlike the conventional electric cooker, Midea’s Induction Cookers could actually give a lot of savings even as compared to buying gas tanks regularly. And because it heats faster, it saves 37% of the electric consumption against the conventional electric stove. This quick cooking feature locks in the nutrients in the food which make every home-cooked meal healthier for everyone in the family.
It has safety features like flameless heating, auto safety shut-off function and auto cooling that are very relevant especially if there are kids in the house. Pre-programmed functions make it user friendly, even for first-time users as well.
Midea has a very versatile Digital Multi-Cooker that not only cooks the perfect rice with its Thermal Circulation Technology that ensures even heating in the cooking pot, but it could also create other dishes with its 8 pre-programmed functions that make preparing home-cooked meals fast and easy. It has the Smart Fuzzy Logic Control Technology which makes automatic adjustments to the cooking time and temperature— without having to worry about it while everyone is preparing for the day ahead. These time friendly features make every household free from all the stress in the kitchen. And it only costs Php 5 of electric consumption to cook the perfect rice, while the same quick cooking feature locks all the nutrients in the food.
To make sure that everyone gets all the nutrients needed from every home-cooked meal, Chefs Rob and Sunshine Pengson suggest that everyone should be diligent enough immediately consume most of the perishable ingredients. “We tend not to overstock and just buy what we’ll need for few days or a week. It involves more trips to the grocery but it ensures that you’re buying ingredients at the height of their freshness.”
The Chefs added that people should always go for the freshest ingredients and always check the colors and firmness of every ingredient. Smelling though is the best way to tell if an ingredient is still fit for cooking. This ensures that every meal prepared with Midea’s line-up of cookers will have better flavor and will always be rich in nutrients. This is very important for both Chefs Rob and Sunshine, especially now that they have a toddler at home, who needs all the nutrients for him to grow strong.
“My son loves spaghetti, so sometimes I try to add some vegetables, like carrots and mushrooms, in there,” Chef Rob shares. “We explain to him how fruits and vegetables will make him big and strong, so he will be more open to eating them,” Chef Sunshine adds. The whole family enjoys eating pasta like their son, because it can also produce a great dish just by using some leftover food. And having these dishes cooked with Midea’s Induction Cooker or Digital Multi-Cooker, every family can enjoy not only the most delicious and healthy home-cooked meals, but also the time they spend together at the dining table.
