Toiling outside to grow plants for use in cooking can be time consuming. Not only that, but it can give you a backache and put stress on your knees from kneeling. Then of course, you also have to battle the weather, pests and soil that may not be helpful for growing things.

When it comes to improving your health, keeping nutrients intact is important. Steaming foods with products like the Oster Eletrocnic 2-Tier Food Steamer can help your body get more vitamins and minerals.
This steamer can help you cook many delicious and healthy meals. It comes with two separate compartments for steaming – a smaller bottom section and a larger, top one.
The top compartment holds almost four quarts of food. This is where you’d cook your main entrée. But instead of having to cook your side items separately, you can cook them at the same time – because the bottom section of the steamer can hold just over two quarts of food. Continue reading
The OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Food Scale has a reputation for accuracy among food scales. This model can weigh up to 11 pounds of food. When it does measure food, it has the ability to measure using both ounces and grams.
It has a large pull out display that makes it easy to read the results of whatever you’re weighing. This is an important feature because sometimes when you weigh food using a big plate, the plate hangs over and makes it harder to read the results.
But thanks to the pull out display feature, that’s not a problem. This feature allows the display to extend the length needed so that you can read what it says. So many times when you’re cooking something, the recipe will call for an exact measurement. Continue reading
