« Tastes Change | Main | Food & Wine Talks TurboChef »
By Steve Beshara | February 18, 2008
We love to cook. And with an oven like the TurboChef, we love to show and tell. So a few days ago in New York City at our premium authorized dealer – MCKB – we hosted a TurboChef cooking experience for over 100 interested New Yorkers who came to witness, experience and taste the TurboChef cook firsthand.
These events are great fun for us because we get out of the office and into a showroom where we can hear precisely what questions and comments people have about TurboChef. One gentleman, who had just recently ordered a TurboChef Speedcook Oven, came early to “see what else the oven could do.” He was delighted to learn more about the oven features, particularly the lower oven and how it compliments the speedcook oven. “So if I'm throwing a party, we can use the lower oven as a warming drawer. Perfect. I can hold all the entrées until everything is ready, then serve it all up nice and warm at the same time,” he exclaimed. His wife also joined us and wanted to study the design more closely. She was delighted to learn that the TurboChef Speedcook Oven had just won an award from Interior Design magazine's readers last month in NYC.
Other comments from the evening:
“The single wall oven will be a hit in NY because it gives you the TurboChef performance in a small kitchen.”
“This is the nicest chateaubriand I have ever tasted.”
“These cook times are hard to believe until you see the food go in the oven, then come out looking great, then tasting sensational. This is a wow product.”
“I'm a kitchen designer and I had to come see the product because many of my clients are asking about it. I can see why people are so interested. I have one going into kitchen in the Hamptons soon.”
“I wasn't sure about the design but now I see it working with other appliances in this showroom.”
Chef George Grieser, along with TurboChef sales and marketing experts Tom Cutler and Leslie Hoffman, cooked several delicious dishes for the enthusiastic crowd. We cooked chateaubriand (in 11 minutes compared to almost an hour conventionally), roasted cod (4.5 minutes versus 20 minutes conventionally) with a tomato vinaigrette (4 minutes instead of 25 minutes) along with several other taste treats. Our good friends at Elle Decor also supported the event with some nice goodie bags for all of the folks who attended. The night was a great success and we enjoyed meeting everyone. We love you you too, New York. Here's to many more dinners together. Cheers.
