AMC : Eat Better, Live Better



Have you ever imagined cooking without oil and additional water??? Yes this is exactly what AMC vouches for...cooking without oil and additional water. When asked how could one cook without adding additional water? This mystery is explained by Mr.Anshu Begai, MD, AMC Cookware India as follows - “when the food is heated, the moisture rises and cools off on the lid and drips back into the food and heats again. The closed cooking cycle between the base of the unit, the cooling zone and the perfectly closing lid allows waterless cooking with AMC.”

Range of AMC Cookware
 Imagine a single cookware used for multi-cooking method - Cooking pulses/ rice/, pasta, Steaming, Poaching, Frying, Double Boiling, Reheating, Stack Cooking, Roasting and Baking...Yes, you heard me right; you can even roast chicken and bake a cake in this cookware !!

The cookware has different units with the below advantages:

1) The material used is high grade surgical stainless steel, chrome-nickel steel mixture that lasts for decades.
2) The Akkutherum capsule base, which captures the heat and distributes it uniformly.
3) The cooling wall zone, wherein the sides gets less heated compared to the base, thus dropping the temperature on the sides, which causes steam to condense and drip back into the food. The cooking temperature thus stays below the boiling point and preserves the vitamins.
4) The condensation groove, which is on the upper rim of the cooking unit, traps condensing steam to form a film of water between the unit and the lid. This water film prevents moisture from escaping out of the cookware during cooking.
5) The handle which is made of stainless steel with built-in ceramic block in-lays, ensures that the handle never gets very hot and makes it easy to grip.

In addition to the above advantages it also has Sentsotherm, which accurately measures the temperature inside the cookware, Visiotherm which indicates the temperature inside the cookware and Audiotherm which monitors the cooking process and beeps when the cooking reaches the indicated temperature.

Using this cookware is slightly tricky; however they do have in-house demos. They only have direct marketing, so difficult to locate this at any store. So if you are interested and want to experience Zero Oil without excess water cooking, you can call the Customer Care and fix up a schedule for a demo.

Having said that, I felt that the rate is on a higher side for a common man on his pocket. But for those who are health conscious and don't mind spending few grands on a cookware, can give it a try.

Couple of weeks back we - the Food Bloggers were invited for the demonstration and cook along event.
