I was recently sent a new product to try out. The Pepita Chef from http://www.domital.it/
Pepita Chef, made of porcelain, is a new kitchen tool for cooking skewers of meat, fish and vegetables rapidly and genuinely. It is also perfect for baking a chicken in your own oven without the addition of fats. It can be used to serve various appetizers, snacks and starters straight on your table and is also excellent for displaying colorful fruit skewers. It is a practical and elegant product, suitable for home, bars, restaurants and also catering and party services.
It's an interesting and attractive tool and is safe to be used in the oven at temperatures up to 250*C and as low as -10*C. You can use it in both the microwave and regular ovens and it is also dishwasher safe.
I used it to roast a chicken. I rubbed the chicken with herbs and placed potatoes that I had also chunks and seasoned around it in the roasting pan. I squeezed a lemon over all and then, glutton that I am, I popped a bit chunck of butter on top of the whole thing.
It ended up being most delicious. The Pepita Chef was easy to use and easy to clean.
Many thanks to the people at www.domital.it for sending me this innovative piece of kitchen kit.
