Entertaining should be fun for everyone, and that includes the cook. This is where your appliances can make all the difference. A good oven from Winning Appliances takes care of business while you spend more time with your guests. A side of salmon, for instance, is an ideal choice for entertaining - some simple seasoning is all that's required, then it's straight into the oven. It also makes an impressive centrepiece on the table. What's more, a Gaggenau pyrolytic oven even monitors the cooking time, too: its core temperature probe automatically switches off the heat when your roast or fish is done, leaving you to mingle and mix the Martinis.
Likewise, you can bake a dish ahead - the Anzac apple pie is perfect here - and have it in the warming draw ready to go when it's time to serve. The Gaggenau warming drawer is designed to heat a six-place setting, as well as defrost or slow-cook food.
When you put it like that, what could be easier? There's nothing left to do but open the wine.
