Because we seem to run short on time for healthy meals and because I am constantly on the lookout for ways to simplify the process, I was delighted to try out the new Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven that was sent to us free of charge.
Until the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven, the only time I really have heard of pressure cooking was from my grandmother who still uses an old school pressure cooker for many of her meals. The food is delicious but it generally takes a long time. So, when I saw the videos of how this new oven worked, I was immediately intrigued.
Whatever you want to cook or bake you can do in the Pressure Oven. If you just want to reheat or toast something there is an option for that as well.
Here’s what we love about the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven:
- Quicker meals with juicy meats
- A rotisserie option
- Reheat meals with more flavor
- Even browning and cooking because of the airtight pressure
- Comes with everything you need (no additional add-ons)
- Priced less than a traditional oven
Things to Consider:
- Space. The Pressure Oven takes up 16 inches of counter space (wide) and is almost 20 inches deep.
- Learning curve. While the oven is easy to use, there is a slight learning curve to get used to. There are also plenty of guides to help.
- Not a microwave. While you can use this to reheat and warm foods, the timer is in a dial format.
I have really enjoyed the convenience of having meats done in record time. The flavor of everything we have cooked so far has been amazing. We have had all tender meats with juices flowing! For example, I was able to create a delicious pork loin for Matthew’s birthday this afternoon in just about 30 minutes which is about half the time it would typically take. Chicken is ready in about a third of the time. Because the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven uses pressure to cook the food, the heat is focused directly on the items you are cooking. This is the reason why your cooking time is significantly lower. As a busy mom, I truly appreciate this! I can really see this coming in handy for Thanksgiving. Imagine having a turkey finished without cooking all day!
