Quick And Healthy Meals with Samsung

Today’s frenetic pace means that it’s not always easy to ensure healthy, well balanced meals each day. Although convenience food does offer some variety, there’s nothing quite like a home-cooked meal for comfort and better nutritional control. As winter approaches, food that fills the stomach and warms the soul while boosting your energy or immune system is vital. But who has the time? Samsung have the answer!

There are myriad healthy meals you can whip up using your microwave oven. In fact, the Samsung HotBlast convection microwave can cook food up to 50% faster than a conventional oven. The way HotBlast works is quite simple; from 60 equally distributed air holes, hot air is blasted downwards onto the food. This hot air derives from a fan that is 1.6 times bigger than traditional convection ovens. A roast chicken will retain its juiciness and flavour, this while cooking in 47% less time than it takes using a conventional oven.
