Tis the Season: Cooking Appliances That Work Best for Family Occasions

Tis the Season: Cooking Appliances That Work Best for Family Occasions
Make your family occasion special by investing in the best cooking appliances for your kitchen.

With Canadian Thanksgiving just wrapped up and Christmas on the way, this is the time of year where we spend hours upon hours in the kitchen cooking up our family’s favourite feasts. From braised turkey and roast beef to pumpkin pies and gingerbread cookies, we all need the right cooking appliances to make preparing meals for a family occasion a pleasure instead of a chore.

Here are some new and modern appliances that can help you get through another festive season, without losing your stuffing:


Leader of the Range

If you’re looking to stir up the best mashed potatoes, grill a salmon, bake a bird and whip up a fondue all in one go, then you can’t beat the kind of gas range that does it all. Listed in KitchenSanity as one of the Top 10 Best Gas Ranges, Bosch appliances’ 30’ Slide-in Sealed Burner Range offers a powerful 18,000 BTU burner and center burner, with an optional griddle accessory. Cook up your favourite family treats with more even heat in the oven that uses a convection fan. The electronic controller has settings from “proof’’, perfect for helping bread to rise, to broil. Another bonus is you can keep everything warm until dinnertime in the warming drawer, and both the drawer and oven have removable doors, making them easy to clean.


Full Steam Ahead

Did you know that you can avoid using trans fats, such as cooking oils, butter and margarine, while preserving nutrients and sealing in flavour by steaming your food? According to appliance reviews, there are numerous combinations of steam ovens on the market.

This includes:

  • Full or steam-only steam ovens
  • Combination steam and convection ovens
  • Added moisture or humidity ovens.

Miele appliances offer ovens in all these configurations in both stand-alone and built-in wall models. They even have a steam oven with a microwave, which allows for speedy and healthy cooking — perfect for those special occasions where you have to get a lot of dishes on the table.


Containing a Smoky Situation

When it comes to cooking for a large family affair, who hasn’t left the buns to warm in the oven maybe a little too long? It’s common to burn or overcook food when you have a lot of fires going on in the kitchen. You can avoid smoking out your guests by looking for the right kitchen ventilation to accompany your cooking appliance. Broan appliances make some of the top-of-the-line modern range hoods in all manner of designs. Besides purifying the air of smoke, oil fumes and odours, you can still carry on a conversation while the ventilation is on, as the fans are some of the quietest on the market.


Queen of the Kitchen Suite

When it comes to cooking for the family this holiday season, you can’t beat KitchenAid appliances. From their famed stand-up mixers in all hues of the rainbow, perfect for whipping up a batch of your favourite cookies, to fridges, cook ranges and dishwashers, KitchenAid offers a suite of kitchen appliances that can’t be beat.
