Not a review … just a giveaway of a Ninja Cooker!! jaden

The Ninja® Multi-Cooker Plus is so much more than a slow cooker, it offers slow cooking, searing, steaming, and oven functionalities! Now you can sear meats and sauté veggies before slow cooking to lock in flavor! You can Slow Cook hearty roasts and stews. Use Stove Top to sear and sauté. Steam delicate foods such as vegetables and seafood using the included steaming rack. You can even bake a whole chicken or moist cupcakes. Traditional slow cookers only heat from the side but the Ninja® heats from the bottom, from the side, and with steam. This is called Triple Fusion Heat and it allows your Multi-Cooker Plus to cook in the many ways that it can. For maximum control in your kitchen, the Ninja® features programmable Time and Temperature settings as well as an Auto-Stay Warm function. Not cooking at home? This appliance works great for parties, vacations, or dorm rooms. Wherever you decide to cook, it will be worry free because the Ninja® Multi-Cooker Plus comes with ACCUTEMP Technology. ACCUTEMP works behind the scenes to keep your cooking temperature in a more controlled range that ensures your food won’t boil over or be overcooked. No more messes or ruined meals.

  • Four Manual Cooking Functions: Slow Cook, Stove Top Sear/Sautee, Steam, and Bake. Four cooking functions all in one appliance. Cook food in more ways than a traditional slow cooker can.
  • Triple Fusion Heat: Traditional slow cookers have only one type of heat—the Ninja® Multi-Cooker Plus has three. Bottom heat, side heat, and steam heat all work together for easy one pot meals.
  • Auto Stay-Warm: The appliance automatically switches to Stay Warm mode when Slow Cook, Steam, or Bake functions come to completion. This keeps your food hot and ready to serve without overcooking it.
  • Programmable Time and Temperature: Select your time and temperature for precise cooking (only available with certain functions).
  • Sear to Slow Cook: Searing meats before slow cooking locks in flavors and juices as well as creates a delicious texture. Do this all in one pot—no extra pans to wash.
  • Easy Clean, 6 Quart Pot: Our 6 quart pot can easily feed a family or more. Being lightweight, non-stick, and dishwasher safe, the pot is very easy to clean and it will be the only thing you have too wash. Focus on the meal, not the mess.
  • Portable: Cook anywhere you have an outlet. Parties, vacations, college, and more. Using a single, easy-to-clean appliance to prepare one-pot meals makes on-the-go cooking convenient.

Hestan 10-Piece Cookware Review + Giveaway https://steamykitchen.com/47472-hestan-10-piece-cookware-review-giveaway.html Tue, 22 Jan 2019 20:02:07 +0000 https://steamykitchen.com/?p=47472 This is a Hestan 10-Piece Cookware Review.

We've reviewed Hestan cookware before, a frying pan and a wok. It's become our favorite cookware in the Steamy Kitchen, outperforming any other set we've ever tried.

The Hestan NanoBond surface is stainless steel bonded with thousands of titanium and chromium-based alloys. There are no chemicals used in this cooking surface. . . .

This is a Hestan 10-Piece Cookware Review, including a giveaway for my favorite pan – the Hestan 3.5 Quart Sauté Pan with Lid. -Jaden

Hestan 10-Piece Cookware Review

We’ve reviewed Hestan cookware before, a frying pan and a wok. It’s become our favorite cookware in the Steamy Kitchen, outperforming any other set we’ve ever tried.

The Hestan NanoBond surface is stainless steel bonded with thousands of titanium and chromium-based alloys. There are no chemicals used in this cooking surface. That means a cooking surface that’s environmentally friendly and incredibly durable….4x harder than stainless steel. The cookware is so innovative, that Hestan owns 14 global patents for the fit and finish.

Hestan 10-Piece Cookware Review

The 10-piece set sells for $1,499.95. Yes, it is expensive, and if you only want the best of the best cookware, this is it.

Hestan 10-Piece Cookware Review

One of the best features of the pan is the flush rivets, which means oil, grease and bits of food are easy to clean from the pan.

Hestan 10-Piece Cookware Review

Because of the titanium surface, you can use a scrubby to really clean the pans without fear of scratching. Of course, every metal pan will discolor with use. With Hestan cookware, the pans polish back to a mirror-like, shiny, scratch-free surface.

Hestan 10-Piece Cookware Review

Hestan 10-Piece Cookware Review

Hestan 8-quart Stockpot with Lid

Hestan 8.5″ Open Skillet

(image coming soon)

Hestan 11″ Open Skillet

I really like the feel of the large skillet. It’s balanced and lightweight. I can easily lift and maneuver with just one hand.

Hestan 1.5qt Saucepan + Lid

The smaller saucepan is a great size – wide enough so that it doesn’t tip over on my stovetop open grates.

My old set had a slightly smaller saucepan, which constantly tipped over on my stovetop grates. See the size difference?

Hestan 3qt Saucepan + Lid

Hestan 3.5qt Sauté with Helper Handle + Lid

My favorite piece of the set is the 3.5-quart Sauté Pan with Lid. Again, the piece is balanced and lightweight. The shape of the handle is comfortable.

The pan is about 3-inches deep.

I’ve used this pan in our latest recipe, Ribeye Cap Steak with Roasted Potatoes & Carrots – a one pan meal for 2 people. The Hestan pan seared the steak perfectly, and allowed the potatoes and carrots on the outer edges of the pan to cook evenly.

Plus, the pans are pretty enough to use serve the meal at the table, too.

Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe

This is a decadent, romantic meal for two that only takes 40 minutes, start to finish, and only uses one pan. Easy to cook, easy to clean up…because your time is better spent enjoying your Valentine’s Day!

(pssst….we are giving one of these Hestan Sauté Pan + Lid away too!)

What is Ribeye Cap Steak?

The tastiest cut of meat on a cow is arguably the ribeye steak (my butcher would say skirt steak.) The ribeye steak  is full of marbling, which gives the cut intense flavor and tenderness at the same time. Super tender prime rib roast that you order from a steakhouse is just the ribeye steak, whole, roasted slowly.

What can be better than a whole ribeye steak? Enjoying the very best part of the ribeye steak – the cap – the most tender, most marbled section of the ribeye steak. This section is called “spinalis dorsi.”

What is Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe

Butcher shops will cut the cap off the ribeye roast and make a nice, thick rolled steak, tied with twine. I purchased this prime Ribeye Cap Steak at Costco for $9.99 per pound. What a deal! USDA Prime steak….the most flavorful cut for less than $10 per pound. This is enough steak to feed four people.

What is Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe

The Ribeye Cap Steak is a type of cut that you savor in small bites. Because it is so well marbled (a.k.a. fatty), it doesn’t take much to satiate your palate.

Plus, these bad boys are about 2-inches thick.

What is Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe

We are serving the Ribeye Cap Steak with roasted baby potatoes and baby carrots.

What is Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe

You can use 5″ long, skinny baby carrots that are sold in a bunch. Find the skinniest carrots. You can also use a bag of baby carrots. Cut the potatoes into quarters and you can leave the baby carrots whole. If they are fat carrots, cut them into 3/4″ thick slices.

Heat a large sauté pan over high heat (this is my Hestan molecular titanium stainless steel cookware that I’ll talk more about in a bit.)

Season Ribeye Cap Steak with salt and pepper, Sear both sides of the steak.

Searing Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe

Add all the vegetables in, put the whole thing in a 375F oven for 15 minutes.

Add vegetables Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe

Check temperature of the steak, once it reaches about 125F, I pull it out. I like my steaks medium rare.

Roast vegetables Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe

Remove steak to a plate, tent with tin foil and let rest (to come up to temperature for medium-rare, 135F)

Increase temperature of the oven to 400F. The pan with the vegetables go back into the oven for another 5-10 minutes, until cooked through.

Why We Use Hestan Cookware

We’ve reviewed Hestan cookware before, a frying pan and a wok. It’s become our favorite cookware in the Steamy Kitchen, outperforming any other set we’ve ever tried.

Our latest review is for the $1,499.95 ten-piece set — we are also giving one piece away. Come read our review and enter the giveaway.

Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe

Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe – one pan dinner for two

This Ribeye Cap Steak Recipe with roasted potatoes and carrots comes together in 40 minutes, start to finish. Everything cooks in the same pan, so cleanup is easy. The timing is for a Ribeye Cap Steak 2-inches thick. If your steak is thinner, decrease the oven roasting time by 5-8 minutes. *For Low-Carb diets, replace the potatoes with cauliflower florets.

  • 1 pound Ribeye cap steak (2" thick)
  • 1/2 pound baby potatoes (cut into 1" pieces)
  • 1/2 pound baby carrots (peeled)
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives (optional)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. If using large carrots, slice into 3/4″ pieces. Make sure the potatoes are cut small enough, the longest side should be no more than 1-inch. 

  2. Rub the ribeye cap steak with cooking oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat a large sauté pan over high heat until very hot. Sear the steak, 3 minutes each side.

  3. Scatter the potatoes and the carrots around the steak in the pan. Roll the potatoes and carrots around to coat them in the cooking oil that is already in the pan (or if there’s very little oil, drizzle a bit of oil over the potatoes and carrots.) Roast for 15 minutes. Toss the potatoes and carrots a bit to ensure even cooking, and return the pan to the oven. Check the temperature of the steak by inserting a probe in the middle of the steak. It should read about 100F. 

  4. Continue roasting for another 5 minutes, check the steak temperature once again. Remove pan from oven when the steak is 125F-127F (if you want medium-rare). The steak will finish cooking as it rests.

    Remove the steak to a plate and tent with tin foil to rest (and come up to 135F medium-rare.) Increase oven temperature to 400F. Return pan with the potatoes and carrots to oven, and continue roasting until the vegetables are done, about 5-10 more minutes. Garnish with minced chives (optional).

This review for the Wüsthof 2-Piece Mini Asian Knife Set includes both PROs and CONs of the product. We tested the knife set for 2 months prior to this review.

Wüsthof 2-Piece Mini Asian Knife Set Review

We’ve been using the Wüsthof 5″ Hollow Edge Santoku and the 3″ Flat Cut Paring Knife (both from the Wüsthof 2-Piece Mini Asian Knife Set), putting it through the rigors of prepping everyday family meals and constant recipe testing at Steamy Kitchen.

Two Versions of the Mini Asian Knife Set

There are 2 versions of this knife: Classic and Classic IKON.

wusthof-classic-2-piece-mini-asian-set-review

Same blade, same durable, non-porous polyoxymethylene material handle. Here are the differences:

Classic

  • Traditional, best-selling Wüsthof collection
  • Square-ish finish on handle
  • PRO: This set sells for around $99 at both Williams Sonoma and Sur La Table, about $40 cheaper than the Classic IKON

Classic IKON

*Note, the Classic IKON is different from the plain IKON, which is made from real African Blackwood.

  • PRO: Ergonomic, curvy handle. Feels good in hand.
  • CON: This set sells for around $139 at Williams Sonoma and Sur La Table. Is the handle design worth nearly half the price of the Classic? My answer is “no,” and I’ll tell you why in just a bit. First, let’s talk about the blade.

The Blade Specs

The Wüsthof 2-Piece Mini Asian Knife Set is made from with X50CrMoV15 stainless steel, with Precision Edge Technology. Yes, technology is the spot-on word to describe this German knife company that began in 1814.

Wüsthof’s computer-controlled robotic machines sharpens each knife for a smoother, sharper edge than any other method. The result is an edge that stays sharp, 2x longer, according to Wüsthof.

Rockwell Hardness of 58.

PRO: A finer, sharper edge angle, which is traditional of most Asian knives. The blade stays sharp, twice as long as their competitors.

Let’s go into each knife:

5″ Santoku Hollow Edge Knife

wusthof-classic-2-piece-asian-knife-set-review-4

The scalloped or hollow edge is great for cutting thin slices of vegetables, to reduce friction and stick. Vegetables fall off the blade, and onto the cutting board for faster and more efficient cutting.

Much of Asian cooking, especially stir-fries require even, thin slices of ingredients, so that everything cooks evenly. That’s why Santoku knives are so designed with the hollow edge and flat blade (vs. curved blade made for “rocking” motion of mincing). The flat blade helps you slice in one even motion.

The angle of edge is 10º on each side.

PRO: Wüsthof’s Santoku is light. About 4 ounces, which is a great weight for cutting small vegetables and fruit. The lightness makes the knife makes you more nimble and your hands less tired when cutting for everyday cooking. In contrast, traditional European style knives have a thicker blade, and are heavier. Heavier knives are great for mincing using the rocking motion, and for cutting through thin, small bones.

The blade of this knife is 5″ long. It’s perfect for smaller vegetables and fruit: skinny carrots, apples, broccoli, garlic slices, shallot, green onion, Asian leafy greens etc. The knife is not made for cutting larger vegetables and fruit, like fat potatoes, daikon, melons, squash. Choose a longer, larger santoku knife for those ingredients.

PRO: The thin, super sharp blade at 10º on each side lets you cut paper-thin slices with amazing precision.

CON: All of Wüsthof’s Santoku knives’ hollow edge comes very close to the blade’s edge. In my opinion, too close. When you sharpen a blade, you are actually creating a new edge – which means removing steel. As you sharpen over time, the hollow indents will come even closer to the edge, and may even become the edge.

Wüsthof 3″ Asian Paring Knife

wusthof-classic-2-piece-asian-knife-set-review-3
This paring knife has a flat edge that comes to a beak-like point. Actually, both the santoku and this paring knife have the “sheepsfoot” point. The blade is 3″ long.

This knife is sharpened to 14º on each side.

PRO: The shape of the blade is perfect for peeling in-hand. The blade’s edge cuts evenly and maximizes the amount of blade cutting your ingredient. In contrast, if you use a European style paring knife with a “belly” curve to peel an apple, your blade’s belly is the only part that’s cutting. Great for peeling garlic, shallots, onion skin. Perfect for slicing strawberries.

PRO: The handle is a generous 4″ long. Some paring knife handles are just too short and end up digging into my palm.

PRO: Light! The knife weighs 2.4 ounces. This makes it easier for hand-work and delicate cutting.

Why I recommend the Classic instead of Classic IKON

Wüsthof’s Classic line is aptly named, it’s a classic design that professional chefs and cooks worldwide have been enjoying since 1814.

The Classic IKON shape is just a little more comfortable, ergonomic. It fits my hand a little better. Both handles are made of same material. Is it worth an additional $40 for the handle shape?

In my opinion, no. Not for the 5″ santoku, which is meant for smaller vegetables and fruit, prepping for everyday meals.

The handle shape of the Classic is just fine for me. I am not slicing 10 pounds of carrots everyday, and I am not peeling a bushel of apples. Hey, if professional chefs have been using Wüsthof Classic for 200 years without complaint, so can I! 🙂

If I happen to be tasked with 10 pounds of carrots to slice, I’d use a food processor or a mandolin (this one is my favorite). If I had to choose a knife to slice 10 pounds of carrots, I’d use a larger, longer santoku knife that weighs a bit more, maybe a 9″ knife and allow the weight of the knife to help me get through all the carrots.

Save your $40 and get a another knife! Here’s another great Wüsthof knife that we reviewed recently and that I also use everyday.
