Kitchen Appliance Love: The Wolfgang Puck Oven

Wolfgang Puck Oven

Right after we moved my friends at T-Fal sent me a new Wolfgang Puck Oven for our new kitchen. I was so excited to try it out because I needed a countertop oven to help me with recipe testing. Plus, I like using countertop ovens to reheat food. The interesting thing about this oven is that not only can you bake small trays of cookies and cook everyday chicken, you can also use it as a pressure oven. I did not have a lot of experience with a pressure oven when I go it, but I do now and it is great!

To make the Wolfgang Puck oven into a pressure oven you simply press down the lever and the whole machine seals shut. It is amazing to think that the whole thing is instantly air tight! The seal enables food to cook more quickly since the heat is in constant contact with the food. I tried one of Wolfgang’s recipes for Stuffed Chicken and it honestly only took 35 minutes to cook. That is half the time it would’ve taken in the oven. I also baked a small tray of brownies in the oven and they came out perfectly.

I rarely tout appliances unless I really think they are genuinely worth it and this is one that truly is. If you know someone who needs a countertop oven and would benefit from getting healthy meals cooked faster than I highly recommend checking this out!
