Welcome to my Wartmann 20cm cooking pot review.
In between cooking in my slow cooker, soup machine and air fryer I am a huge fan of cooking over the hob. Especially, as this time of year when it is really cold and the heat of a pan makes you feel so much better.
Today is Christmas Day (HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE) and today like most days I am going to be hard at it cooking up a storm. Well Dominic will be by my side, so I shouldn’t take all the credit myself!!!!
But for us we like things to be easy. We don’t want to spend all Christmas Day in the kitchen cooking when there are better things to be doing. That is why we like one pot cooking so much.
We can make pasta dishes, fish dishes, meat dishes, casseroles and a whole range of other things. For Christmas Day a one pot is perfect for some of your vegetables, stuffing, gravy and even your vegetable bake.
Clearly I only have one, so ours will be used today to make our vegetable bake and then I will probably keep it warm just by leaving it on the top of the cooker with the turkey cooking in it.
But come tomorrow it will be perfect for my leftovers that I will be cooking in a nice sauce with some pasta added in to bulk it up.
But whatever your use for it, it is one of those products where you have information overload with ideas of what you’re going to cook in it! This I am sure is a good thing because otherwise it would be awful if it ended up being something that just ended up stuck in the cupboard and never used.
Our Favourite One Pot Dish
Now this has to be one of our turn to dishes. When we are happy, when we are sad, when we are super hungry, when we have leftovers to use and best of all when we just want some comfort food.
I am talking about macaroni cheese.
Growing up I was a vegetarian and I couldn’t think of anything better than a homemade cheese sauce and loads of stodgy pasta.
And if you have kids they will love you forever if you serve them up some Mac & Cheese for dinner!
- 250g Pasta
- 1 Medium Onion (peeled and diced)
- 1Tsp Garlic Puree
- 250g Soft Cheese
- 100ml Milk
- 1Tbsp Olive Oil
- 200g Cheddar Cheese
- Salt & Pepper
- 2Tbsp Parsley
- 1Tsp Chives
- Place your diced onion in your pot and fry with a little olive oil until your onion is golden. Add the garlic puree and stir well.
- Add a 250g carton of soft cheese along with 100ml of milk and mix well.
- Add the pasta and turn up the heat and put the lid on.
- Boil for 15 minutes stirring every 4-5 minutes so that the sauce doesn’t stick to the pan.
- Once the pasta is 80% cooked add the cheese and seasoning and keep stirring regularly until the pasta is done.
Why get the Wartmann 20cm Cooking Pot?
Well for me it is the idea that you have that one pot for all. Something that you can use for a variety of dishes and if you lack kitchen space then you could just have this in your kitchen and know that you can use it for everything from boiling eggs to making a pot roast.
It also comes with a fantastic see through lid so that you can keep an eye on what you’re cooking.
It is also the perfect size for family cooking and like with other products in the Wartmann range it is very easy to clean.
