Countertop cooking is about as convenient as it gets. For starters, one can position the appliance exactly where it is best utilized. They are endlessly varied and offer an opportunity to outfit a kitchen exactly as one sees fit. From toaster ovens to bread makers, appliances that live on the counter expand the usefulness and convenience of the kitchen. For all of their positive aspects, there is perhaps one feature that they posses that is beneficial above all others: countertop appliances actually get put to use.
Sometimes it's the little things that matter when it comes to making meals. Little things like finding the enthusiasm for cooking vegetables. By looking no further than the countertop, the Wolfgang Puck Electric Gourmet 6-Quart-Capacity Wok with Steaming Tray facilitates stir-fry cooking and vegetable steaming. With a 6-quart capacity and a 14-inch diameter (along with a 4.5-inch depth), the wok offers plenty of room for cooking everything from single meals to family-size feasts--all easily made with healthy vegetables.
Complete with a tempered-glass lid, stay-cool handles, and an included steaming tray, the wok is versatile as well as convenient. With a variable temperature probe that allows for a range of cooking methods, the appliance is capable of sauteing, braising, and steaming. Of course, the convenience of countertop cooking is not without its drawbacks: you still need to clean the pan after using it. Some things never change, but at least you'll have had your veggies.
