Philips HomeCooker is like a slow cooker but with many other functions. It is able to simmer (90ºC), boil (110ºC), steam (130ºC), fry (175ºC), keep the food warm (70ºC) and melt (40ºC). The temperature setting (max 250ºC) can also be set to turbo to heat up ingredients quickly or to roast large amounts of ingredients.
Being Chinese, I always love to cook my own Chinese dishes. So I decided to cook fried rice using Philips HomeCooker with my own recipe. Firstly, I had cooked my rice using my rice cooker and set it aside to cool down. Make sure the stirrer attachment is in place in the pan, then set the temperature to 175°C. Once the pan has heated up, add oil, frozen mixed vegetables, frozen prawns, soya sauce and sesame oil. Set the timer for 15 minutes, so the food starts to cook. Reduce the temperature to 70°C and add the rice into the pot and let it stir for another 10 minutes. It was so delicious! We had finished it all too!
For my Philips Fresh Cooks Party, I had decided to cook crispy rosemary potatoes from Jamie’s HomeCooker recipes (Page 50) using my Philips HomeCooker.
This is the video I made:
Today, I received my parcel for Philips Fresh Cooks Party organised by Come Round. Among the many goodies in the party pack is a Waitrose voucher so I can stock up on ingredients and prepare something at my party from the Jamie Oliver recipe book (supplied with the Philips HomeCooker).
These are my goodies; Philips HomeCooker, Philips High Tower, 10 Aprons, 10 Notepads, 10 Colourful Balloons, 2 CDs, Jamie Oliver poster, Jamie magazine, UNO, a list of party challenges and Wicked’s leaflets.
