These vare Vessels made of Surgical Steel and cook Food without any Fat and without added Water thus preserving all the nutrients in Vegetables cooked thus..Using these saves Fuel as Food cooks faster as well as you end up using less Salt as the Natural flavour and taste of the Food gets enhanced.
Though expensive to buy, these Vessels save Fuel,Time which in turn saves both Money and Energy in the long run.You end up eating healthier and better tasting Food----I own these so I can recommend them!!!!
I always add Salt after a dish is 75% cooked as I have to eat a low Sodium Diet.By doing this the Food being cooked does not absorb Salt while it cooks and I need much less than I otherwise would.I also do not sprinkle any Salt on my Food after it's fully cooked or when I'm just about to eat it---I prefer cooking the Food a little after adding Salt---helps keep my BP within range.I sprinkle Salt on my Salads,cover these and keep for 10 minutes for the Salt to be absorbed and only then eat these
By doing this I ensure that the quantity of Salt eaten is much less than what I'd have eaten otherwise and very little difference in taste as well since the natural Salt present in each Food component comes into focus this way----we unneccessarily oversalt our Foods and suffer for it!!!!
I've found that I can make many of my favorite dishes with little or no salt by going heavier on the other spices I use in the dish. An example I recently made bean soup and the only salt was in the can of tomatoes I used which was spread over 15 cups of soup. But I went heavy on the garlic, bay leaf and clove. Didn't even notice the lack of added salt or meat.
