I've been thinking of buying an OTG for long. I saw different models of OTG in Prestige smart kitchen when I went to buy my non-stick tava. But the sales person suggested to buy a Convection MW instead of OTG so that I can cook and bake. I already have Solo MW but offlate I couldnt use it as the converter developed some problems.
I was confused whether I really want to go for an OTG or should I buy a Convection MW. During that time I came across the blog: Kailas Kitchen. I mailed Jayasree on all my doubts regarding OTG and MW. She had enough patience to answer all my questions on the selection of OTG and got lots and lots of inputs from her. She suggested Bajaj OTG which she bought in Big Bazzar. But when I went there they only had some Koryo brand.. which is their own make. I dint want to buy one xyz make. Though Prestige is an established company but OTG is a new product from them. So I was not convinced to go back to Prestige OTG.
I have dropped plan of buying OTG. Two weeks later, DH got some celebrating points(Points are awarded to employees for their Performance from time to time which can be redeemed for some products). We were browsing on those products and I saw Prestige OTG 29 ltrs was listed in that. Donno why I have the feeling like if I am not spending from my pocket, I feel like it comes for free. I immediately asked him to order that. In 15 days I received the OTG.
There were so many accesories in that which was not explained in the User Manual. The manual was of absolutely no use. I took the all of them to the Prestige smart kitchen and asked the person incharge there about their functionalities like how to fix the rotisseri rods inside the OTG, what are the skewers for etc.
My MIL asked me what can I make in that.. I had no answer. Though a lot can be cooked/baked, I dont know anything to make in that. Again my only saviour - Jayasree..Emails were sent back and forth and finally I got some guts to do something in that.
First I toasted bread in that. Yes it an Oven Toaster Griller. So you need not laugh. I have completely used one of its functionality. It dint turn golden brown with fine dark brown lines. But it was crisp and tore my gums :-( But the best is I need not be near it and it was not burnt.
The first successful bake will be posted in the next blog!
