One of the problems that comes with stovetop cooking is always having things boil over. Or, perhaps having hot grease spit at you. This is not only potentially dangerous, but makes a big mess to clean up. A solution may be the Smartcone.
The Smartcone is a device that fits on top of the pot or pan that food is being cooked in. The top of Smartcone is open so the cook can access the food that is cooking. Basically the Smartcone extends the depth of the cooking vessel. This helps to prevent the boil overs and the spatters.
The promoters of Smartcone claim that not only does it prevent spill overs and spatters but it helps the food to cook more evenly. Plus it can be used for steaming vegetables.
The hype for Smartcone is really all about the convenience. When food boils over it can create a big cleanup chore. No matter how hard one tries not to allow this to happen, it does more often than not. It can be hard to regulate the cooking temperature to control boil overs.
The cost of the Smartcone is $29.99 plus $4.99 shipping and handling. For an extra $4.99 one can get an extra Smartcone.
The commitment is going to have to be to not just toss the Smartcone in a drawer and forget about it. This often happens with so many gadgets. Most kitchens will have a drawer full of very little used gadgets that were appealing at the time.
There is no doubt that a product like Smartcone is one that is needed. There are several different variations of them on Amazon. Some are less expensive while others are more. Many have reported some favorable results. It really is a good idea. Not just from the standpoint of the cleanup but grease spatters can burn when they hit the skin. It doesn’t mean that food should be cooked at higher temperatures just because one is using the Smartcone or a product like it. Proper caution still has to be taken. Food that is cooking should never be left unattended.
Final Smartcone Review
We are prepared to give the Smartcone a thumbs up. It is easy to clean and is a big convenience. Plus it is handy for steaming veggies. Cleaning of the Smartcone is quick and easy. A lot faster than when one has to scrub down the stove.
