Innovative Cooking Tool for at Home or on the Go

I have discovered an innovative cooking tool with the Hot Logic cooking/warmer trays. Busy parents, students, and people who travel for business purposes will find a wealth of uses for both the mini and larger size of the Hot Logic cooking/warmer trays. People who love to cook will find these easy to prepare meals on the go. Any container that can be used in a microwave can be used to cook food on the Hot Logic tray. My personal favorite use for these trays is to be able to prepare frozen meals in that I eat a lot of frozen meals as a single woman. There is no need to remove the frozen meal from the package. A frozen meal can be prepared in 1-2 hours. I have found that a frozen meal actually tastes better when using the Hot Logic tray to prepare the meal instead of using a microwave. I also like the ability to prepare leftovers. Leftovers can be heated and left on the tray as a warmer for hours. There is no need for a timer. Meat, vegetables, pasta and pizza can all be prepared on these fun-to-use trays. If you are using fresh meat and vegetables, you can prepare a quick meal in 1-2 hours. Cooks who like to cook from scratch will also love this innovative tool.

Parents who have students in college might like to give this innovative tool as a gift. The size of the cook trays make this a great gift in that the trays are smaller than a microwave that may not fit into a small dorm room.

This innovative cooking tool is very simple to use. There are no special buttons or dials to learn to use. Both the mini size and the family size Hot Logic are fully automatic ovens. These cooking trays/ovens use conduction heating. These tools are actually better than a microwave in that food is heated evenly the first time. You only have to plug them in and cook. I did call the company representative to ask about cooking inside the carrying cases and the representative assured me that it is recommended that you cook inside the case in that the cook trays do get very hot. It is your preference for cooking inside the case or on your kitchen counter. I did cook inside the carrying case.

Clean-up is also simple. Unplug the cooking tray and allow it to cool before cleaning. Do not use an abrasive cleaner. I used a paper towel to wipe clean with a mild cleaner. Do not put the cooking tray in the dishwasher and do not submerge in water. Do not spray the cleaner that you use on the tray. Spray a paper towel or soft cloth with your cleaner and wipe the tray clean.

Favorite Recipes for Using Hot Logic

I have chosen a few favorite tips and ideas for using this innovative cooking tool. It is sometimes difficult to cook for one person and this product makes it fun to try a variety of preparation for simple healthy meals for one person. One of my favorite recipes from the included quick-start guide and cookbook is the Monterey chicken dish. This recipe is quick and delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 small can mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 slices provolone cheese

Directions:

  1. Season chicken as desired, cover with mushrooms and onions, and cook for 2+ hours.
  2. Cover with provolone cheese 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

How about a quick dessert? I prepared this recipe after receiving the Hot Logic cook trays/warmer. I recommend this fruit pie enchilada.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup can fruit pie filling ( I used a blueberry filling)
  • 2 8" tortillas

Directions:

  1. Spray or brush cooking oil into the bottom of a pyrex dish.
  2. Scoop 1/2 cup of filling onto tortillas and wrap.
  3. Place the seam down in the pyrex dish and cook for 90+minutes.
  4. This serves 2 people. I topped mine with ice cream. Enjoy!

Cooking with Kids with the Hot Logic Trays

I used quick and fun recipes with my kindergarten classes when I taught. It is sometimes difficult to cook in a classroom because of space and having limited use of a microwave or no microwave. The Hot Logic cooking tray/warmer is a great tool for teachers to bring into the classroom to prepare a simple recipe with your class. Supervision is definitely required because the trays get very hot, but the trays can be left inside the carrying case to avoid touching the tray while cooking. This feature makes it easy for children to participate in cooking a classroom-friendly recipe.

Children will love this classroom-friendly recipe for mini burritos.

Ingredients:

  • 8" sized tortillas
  • 1/2 can refried beans
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 can enchilada sauce

Directions:

  1. Put each shell in a Pyrex dish, and fill it with 1/4 can of refried beans.
  2. Split the onions and 1/2 cup shredded cheese in each shell.
  3. Wrap and place shells seam side down.
  4. Cover with enchilada sauce and cook for 2+ hours. Enjoy!
