*Review 2018* – Heating things up

Last Updated Dec 2018 – Having a toaster oven is one of those optional choices in the kitchen – you can get by without it. But having a ‘good’ toaster oven is another thing all together. There are loads of different toaster ovens available on the market but the one that really stands out for us is the Breville Smart Oven BOV800XL.

Lets have a look at why we think it is worthy of a place in the kitchen.

Review 2018

Last Updated Dec 2018 – Lets have a look and see if it’s all it is cracked up to be.Coffee making is an art that only a few can master, and for others there is krups espresseria automatic coffee maker. Real espresso machines (like the ones in your favourite café) cost anything from $5000- $50,000 – which means you would have to drink a lot of coffee at home to get your money back.

There are however many home coffee makers available on the market, and choosing the one that best suits your needs is a bit of a daunting task. One that has been getting a bit of attention lately is the Krups espresso maker.

On The Gas 2018 Review

Last Updated Dec 2018 – If you are like us here at On The Gas – then you probably like the odd refreshing beverage or five. One of the greatest summer (or winter) drinks is the caprioska – vodka muddled with fresh lime a bit of brown sugar and then covered in crushed ice.

There are various ways that you can crush ice some people have one of those flimsy hand ice grinders … which can take forever and break more than often – you can wrap it up in a tea- towel and smash it with a rolling pin (but this can get a bit messy especially after a few drink) You can use the food blenders to crush ice, but it wreaks havoc on the blades. Or you can do it properly and use an electric ice crusher.

 The 2018 Review

Cooking rice is no less complex than a chemistry experiment; you need to cook the right amount of rice, at the right temperature, for the right amount of time to get the exact portion of rice you want. Believe us, it is easier said than done, quite often, even the most experienced of cooks end up messing up their rice; it either turns out overcooked and gooey, or undercooked and chewy.
