Christmas is just around the corner, and you know what that means? It's time to indulge in some festive treats and beverages.
Traditional recipes like roasted turkey and glazed ham and baking fresh gingerbread cookies in the Paris Rhône Air Fryer Oven AF006 are heartwarming parts of Christmas. But it doesn't mean you must spend your whole day in the kitchen.
Kitchen Appliances like milk frothers, air fryers, and kettles can transform your Christmas feast into a breeze!
Milk Frothers - Elevating Your Festive Beverages
What beats a cup of hot chocolate on a chilly day? Well, maybe a latte or eggnog. But a frothed creamy milk can make it even better. A milk frother adds a smooth texture to your drinks, making every sip special.
If you are looking for a milk frother to elevate your drinks, knowing a few things can be helpful. Different milk frothers are available in the market, including manual, handheld, and automatic models like the Paris Rhône Milk Frothers MF005. Each has unique features, allowing you to choose the perfect frother for your Christmas drinks.
- Manual:The Plunger is a manual frother. It is simple and affordable, requiring pumping to froth the milk. It is perfect for beginners or occasional use.
- Handheld:A battery-powered whisk is a handheld milk frother; this is very convenient for individual drinks or travel. Ideal for cappuccinos or quick frothing.
- Automatic:Automatic milk frother is perfect if you have busy mornings and want fluffy milk for your morning coffee or drinks. It heats milk automatically and comes with different settings.
How to froth milk effectively?
To froth milk, place the milk in a tall container. Hold the container at 45 degrees and turn on the frother. Move the frother up and down until foamy bubbles form, about 20 seconds. To break down any large bubbles, tap the container on the counter.
Air Fryers - Healthier Twists to Classic Christmas Dish
Christmas is a time for family, friends, and delicious food. But it doesn't mean you're unhealthy , realizing your air fryer; you can still enjoy your favorite holiday dishes without sacrificing your health.
Air frying is a healthier alternative to deep frying, as it uses less and produces crispy, golden results. Paris Rhône Air Fryer AF014 works by rapidly circulating hot air around the food. The air movement causes the food to cook evenly and quicker than traditional frying methods.
Here are some ideas for healthier Christmas dishes using an air fryer:
- Mains:Instead of deep-frying turkey, use the air fryer. Coat your turkey with herbs and spices, and let the air fryer do its work. You'll get a juicy and crispy meal without the extra fat.
- Sides: Avoid air-frying roasted vegetables over heavy, butter-laden mashed potatoes. Toss Brussels sprouts, carrots, or broccoli with olive oil, herbs, and a little garlic. Air-fry until they're tender and slightly caramelized. You'll get all the flavor and nutrients without the fat.
- Desserts: You can even make healthy desserts in the air fryer. Try air-frying apple slices with cinnamon and brown sugar. Or, make a batch of air-fried doughnuts using whole wheat flour and a touch of sweetness. They're lighter but can satisfy sweet cravings, as no meal is complete without a dessert!
Kettles - Quenching Your Thirst for Festive Beverages
No holiday gathering is complete without steaming mugs of cheer. Christmas comes with cozy beverages like peppermint mocha, spiced cranberry hot toddy, and Gingerbread Latte.
A kettle isn't just for boiling water. You can use it to simmer mulled wine and make your own flavored syrups and drinks. Modern kettles have temperature control and rapid boiling capabilities to make life more convenient.
How to make festive syrup with a kettle:
You can make different festive syrups and infused delights even in your kettle. Here's how to make cranberry rosemary syrup.
Add a handful of fresh or frozen cranberries and rosemary leaves to your kettle while it simmers. Strain the infused water and mix it with sugar for a vibrant cranberry syrup, perfect for cocktails, mocktails, or even glazing holiday desserts.
