There are lots of different ways of cooking with a barbecue: in this magazine we have already talked about the classic grilling method, but also about cooking using a wood-fired oven.

If you have a gas bbq, you can also try cooking with a hotplate: let’s discover how!

Healthy cooking on a hotplate

When using a gas hotplate to cook, all the excess fat drains away and collects in a special tray allowing you to produce light, healthy dishes, without compromising on taste! Furthermore, cooking on a flat surface means that the heat can be distributed evenly, reducing the risk of burning, allowing you to obtain perfect results.

This method can be used to cook many different types of foods. A gas hotplate is suitable not only for large pieces of meat, fish and vegetables, but also smaller more delicate foods: you can indulge yourself with more creative recipes, which wouldn’t work so well on a grill where certain ingredients such as delicate crustaceans risk ending up on the embers.

5 minute recipes

Another great advantage of this type of cooking is speed. Compared to cooking over a flame, which requires a fairly lengthy preparation, the gas hotplate is ready for use in a matter of minutes. Furthermore, with the absence of smoke in the cooking process, food also retains its natural taste and nutritional value more readily.

Palazzetti’s Cookie line gas hob module gas appliance is equipped with 3 or 4 steel burners with a “one-touch” ignition method. There is also the option to add a lid with an integrated thermometer so that the hotplate can be used as an oven.

Fast and easy cleaning

This method also makes the post-cooking phase easier. Being a flat surface, the hotplate is easy to clean. The most indispensable tool to remove any residual food from your hotplate is a spatula and, once cooled, you can use a suitable cleaning product or white vinegar on a damp cloth to wipe clean.
