The first thermal cooker was found by The Monmouth Archaeological Society’s and the innovative thermal cooker was developed in Asia in the mid 1990s.

The inner pot was used to bring the food to boil, while the outer was used as the container to keep the cooking process continuing.

Copper in architecture

Copper doesn’t have to make just cents. Architects use it quite often for creating spectacular copper architecture. Many of the architects use copper because it can age naturally and after some time it will rust to green and merge with a natural landscape. Copper is bright, reflective and has many practical benefits. Sometimes it can add a “retro-futuristic” copper style to your house.

The Best Steel For The Best Dish!

An interesting wok test compares the carbon steel wok again the stainless steel wok. There is a lot of debate over these two compositions of woks even if they look kite similar there are some important difference with their temperature reaction.

image

Most people prefer the carbon steel wok over the stainless steel wok because it has the most regular heat dispersion. This is not the case with stainless steel overheated and these hot spots can totally ruin a cooking and reduces long-term quality cooking. On the other hand, the carbon steel has good resistance to high temperatures and retains heat much longer than stainless steel woks for future use.

image

The only downside is that carbon steel requires slightly more maintenance to eliminate the appearance of rusting. We just needs to dry well and rub with 2 or 3 drops of oil to prevent any risk of rust.

image

To have a good wok stainless steel we have to choose the best quality of stainless steel and the final price may be higher than the carbon steel wok.  Overall, the carbon steel wok is a better choice for short and long term use.

Shanghai Metal Corporation offers a large selection of carbon steel with the highest quality standard and an affordable pricing. To find out more, please visit our Website or send your inquiry here.

What do a 3 Star Michelin Restaurant and a local eater have in common?

What do a 3 Star Michelin Restaurant and a local eater have in common?

Answer-they both use stainless steel in their kitchen, in one shape or another. The world of professional cooking is a vigorous and every so changing and demanding world. From preparing the perfect cocktail, to pleasing the customer with small works of art, and of course to serving them a most memorable dessert. All and many more of these examples would not be possible and hygienic without the participation of Stainless steel.

image

Let’s view this idea as if you just had a long day at work, and just want to sit down and enjoy a great diner with no worries. You begin with a cocktail, a cold vodka martini which was possible by the stainless steel ice box, and the stainless steel shakers which chilled your cocktail at a rapid speed without diluting it. Before, this same cocktail would have been stirred, diluted, and not reach the ice cold feeling you are enjoying today.

image

Dinner has arrived! It is a perfectly poached Salmon with seared tomatoes and reduced vinegar glaze on top. A small work of art, and yet again this perfectly balanced dish would not have been possible without the assistance of stainless steel appliances. Since stainless steel holds on to temperature very well, and it is not affected by acids such as tomatoes, or vinegar; this dish you are taking pictures of and twitting about, could not have been possible without the help of stainless steel pots and pans.

image

Finally dessert; a curious pairing of frozen ice creams sitting on top of a variety of fried fruit, both curious and intricate. Again, difficult without the help of stainless steel appliances such as: the deep fryer and ice cream maker. Your experience has come to an end, and you leave with a smile on your face. You leave thanking everyone, except one silent participant, but it is ok, those pots and pans will be waiting for you for many years come.

image

The participation of Stainless steel is one who has helped raise the level of artistry in the world of professional kitchens, as well as in your kitchen at home. As Stainless Steel Industry Professional, Shanghai Metal Corporation takes pride in the manufacturing of those products which are used in our customer’s daily life such as stainless steel cutlery, kitchen sinks and a countless variety of stainless steel products, which our company manufactures and supplies at the highest quality and most affordable price. So you never know-you might have to also thank us next time you go out to eat.

French Dessert in 7 minutes, How?!

Have you ever experienced those days when you’re at your home, feeling bored and just for some reason happen to have 200 grams of dark chocolate, 100 grams of butter, three eggs, 100 of sugar, 75 grams of flour and a half of a bag of baking powder and a silicon cake mold? Well guess what, during those days you can start being creative a do something with all these things. You might know what that is – yes, a cake!

A French cuisine site cuisineaz.com reveals how to prepare a simple chocolate cake in seven minutes, using a silicon cake mold and a microwave oven.  From that seven minutes you use two to melt the chocolate together with butter and five to bake it in a microwave oven. For a detailed description, please refer to these instructions in French.

Besides baking, cake molds can also be used for other purposes. For instance, bentoriffic.com site lists three uses for silicon molds – baking, smooshing and freezing.

The site suggests to freeze hummus or yogurt. Freezing seems to have two benefits. First, using shaped molds gives the food an aesthetic appearance. Whether the appearance actually affects the taste is another question. Second, it keeps the food cold in your lunch container until lunch time.

You can also use cake molds to smoosh food. The site teaches a way to make, say, different shapes of hard-boiled eggs by using medium-sized silicon molds. You can read the whole article here.
