Tefal launches new cooking range
Dubai, February 28, 2010
Tefal, the inventors of easy to clean non-stick pots and pans, has launched a new range of products embracing the ‘nutritious and delicious’ concept in healthy cooking.
"Nutricook is part of Tefal’s nutritious and delicious range of products born from the desire to combine nutrition and pleasure and to respond to new requirements and consumer demand," said Nathalie Fata Haddad, product manager cookware, Middle East/Indian Sub Continent.
“Research and Development has confirmed that steam cooking is without a doubt the method that best retains the nutritional qualities of food.”
She added that Nutricook uses an air vent system that activates automatically when cooking starts. The vent eliminates up to 90 per cent of the oxygen present in the pressure cooker. Oxygen has been found to degrade its nutritional quality.
Other features of Nutricook are the optimised steamer basket developed based on cutting edge research on the steam flow inside the pressure cooker during cooking. The steam first flushes out the oxygen and thus ensures maximum preservation of vitamins and flavor with up to two times more vitamin C in vegetables.
The solid wall of the Nutricook basket prevents the oxygen from coming back into contact with the food. The other innovation in this product is the soft steam cooking phase at the end of the cooking process which would ensure a perfect cooking to the core of the meat for example without overdoing the meat surface.
Haddad added that Nutricook is the only pressure cooker in the world with four exclusive programmes for meat, vegetables, starchy food, and fish.
Nutricook is being launched in the Middle East simultaneous with the launch in France, she added. – TradeArabia News Service
