My Thoughts:
amc premium system stainless steel multi talent pot
I have a relatively small kitchen, and often got frustrated working within the confined space. The idea of being able to rest the lid of my AMC pot on its handle makes it so convenient. It's definitely an added bonus!

No longer do I need an oven mitt to carry my hot pot with AMC " Stay Cool " Handles. The patented Thermobloc ceramic insert prevents heat being conducted from the body of the unit to the handles during cooking, making it easy for me to hold the handles without the use of oven mitt whenever I want to stir my food or transfer the pot. I am so loving it!

I thought the Visiotherm and Audiotherm devices are rather cool; they remind of the once popular kettle that whistles when the water is boiling. I found it interesting to have the built-in thermometer ( Visiotherm ) on the AMC lid monitor the temperature while cooking and helping to minimize moisture loss at the same time. On the other hand, I have the Audiotherm sending me signals to say what is going on inside the unit and what has to be done by beeping me.

As a newbie, you may find it a bit challenging handling the high-tech gadgets, but fret not cause help is just a phone call away, and thanks to Kay who has made my cooking experience with AMC a delightful one! Practice makes perfect, and you can always register for their on-going cooking classes to learn along the way.

While the conventional method of cooking this Bittergourd Chicken dish takes over an hour for a melt-in your-mouth texture, it took me just 30 minutes using the AMC pot. The colour of the dish also appeared darker than using the traditional method of cooking. It could be due to the fact that only ½ cup of water was used, compared to the usual 2 cups since AMC promotes cooking food without oil and vegetables without water.
