It's little wonder a great many of the world's best chefs choose to cook with natural gas. Whether you're baking, barbecuing, simmering, frying or stir frying, maintaining the correct temperature with flexibility to adjust in an instant is imperative to the success of your creation.
Cooking with natural gas not only offers you complete control and flexibility, it's also very economical. Whether you're a seasoned professional or a novice, if you're going to be a good cook, it certainly helps to be in control.
Small jets allow delicate simmering or long, slow cooking. The medium sizes provide more heat for everyday work, while the large burners are ideal for searing and sealing and the high, fierce heat required for perfect Asian cooking. Some cook tops offer a double burner for quick wok cooking or long griddle burners for fish pans. There are even 'salamander' grillers that drain away fat for a healthier result. Some models feature elongated burners under a char-grill to provide that 'fresh off the BBQ' flavour, indoors.
Natural Gas Ovens
If you're building a new home, or renovating an existing one, a well designed floor plan will make functional use of even the smallest spaces. With the latest technology, there are a variety of natural gas ovens to choose from including upright, freestanding or wall ovens to assist in alleviating any space constraints.
The latest design in natural gas ovens include thoughtful features such as plate-warming racks, auto-ignition and extra-bright oven lights which let you see the food easily. Programming options allow for superior organisation and flexibility to start cooking a meal even before you've arrived home!
The Barbecue – The Epitome of Australian Living
A new-generation of barbecues have arrived boasting state-of-the-art grilling, deep-frying – even roasting features. Your barbecue has truly evolved to become an extension of your kitchen.
Just like your cooktop or oven, the barbecue features fingertip control to give you sizzle in a flash. Importantly, having your barbecue connected to natural gas means you won't be worrying about running out of fuel halfway through a backyard banquet.
Tips To Save You Money
While natural gas is an economical form of energy, there are steps you can take to ensure that natural gas cooking is as efficient and economical as possible.
- Keep gas flames to the same size as the base of saucepans.
- Put lids on saucepans.
- Turn the gas flame down when saucepan contents boil.
- Avoid opening the oven door unnecessarily while cooking.
- Conventional gas ovens do not need to be pre-heated.
- Make full use of the gas oven and use fan-forced cooking to save time
and, therefore, energy costs.
- As with all major appliances, have your gas cooking appliances cleaned
and serviced regularly to ensure maximum efficiency.
