And if you think that cookware is impersonal for a mothers day gift, there is nothing stopping you popping a bottle of mom’s favorite perfume inside the cookware gift, or you can add a bottle of wine or some chocolates or flowers.

Mom’s always appreciate any gift their family give them, and remember if you purchase a good quality piece of cookware your gift will not only give mom pleasure on the day but will give her many years of useful service.

Cooking With T- Fal & Jamie Oliver Thermo-Spot Cookware

t-fal-thermo-spot-125-pan1T-Fal cookware such as this T-Fal Ultimate Hard Enamel Fry Pan- Black(12.5″) has the unique Thermo-Spot indicator that lets you know when your pan is perfectly preheated and ready to seal in the flavor of your food.

How often have you ended up with stewed, stringy meat and soggy potatoes simply because the pan wasn’t hot enough to sear the meat and seal in the juices.

When the pan is cold the Thermo-spot pattern is visible in the dark red spot in the middle of the pan.

The pan is perfectly pre-heated and ready for use when the spot turns solid red at approximately 190 degrees.

The non-stick interior gives durable performance for extra heavy use and the Non-stick exterior allows for easy clean up.

For those of you who follow this blog will be aware of the fact that I am a great fan of Jamie Oliver cookware. and have recently purchased the saute pan, breakfast pan and dutch oven.


Jamie Oliver has his own series of TV shows and is the author of The Naked Chef among other great cookbooks.Jamie designed his range of cookware with Tefal to ensure that his followers received

Turbo Oven Review – Convection Oven Review

Secura Halogen Infrared Turbo Convection Countertop Oven, Deluxe Package W/extender Ring;tong;cook Racks 777MHEarlier this year I brought a turbo (convection) oven after one of the women at work told me how fantastic they are.

I have to agree with her and I was so impressed I brought all the kids one and they are all equally as impressed.

The oven sits on the bench top and I cook roasts and vegetables to perfection in it. There is also a wash cycle that makes the glass bowl and the stainless steel shelves easy to clean up in moments.

I have never liked my roasts cooked in the microwave, they just don’t seem to taste as they should, the meat looks pale and unappetising and pork crackling just doesn’t work in a microwave. Whereas the turbo oven cooks pork crackling just perfect and roast meat and veges to perfection.

I thoroughly recommend a turbo oven for convenience and great cooking results. I know I wouldn’t be without minet.

A turbo oven draws heat from the outside, heats it and swirls it around the food to cook it.

The oven is so easy to clean, simply add some water and detergent and turn the dial to clean and the timer 5 minutes. The turbo action swirls the water around and loosens all the grease, then when the oven cools to the stage where I can pick it up safely without burning myself, I pour out the water and simply rinse the bowl in fresh washing up water and wipe it over with a clean tea towel to dry.

I tend to leave the stainless steel racks in the oven when I am running it through the clean cycle as I find it makes them easy to clean as well.

I love mine so much that I brought one for  my daughters and my daughter in law for christmas. They love their turbo ovens as much as I love mine. In fact my D-I-L brought a second one as she has a large family, and she uses one for the meat and one for the veges.

This is one purchase you will never regret.
