Grill and steam for a healthier summer

12/06/2013 | Posted in Kitchen

Now that the sun has finally started to shine, it’s time to start enjoying the summer! What better way to do that than with a summer full of delicious, healthy food to ensure that you feel in tip top condition.


What you may not have known is that one of the best ways to set yourself up for a healthy summer is with a combination of delicious grilled and steamed food. Luckily for you, we have kitchen appliances that can help make it a reality this summer.




Steaming is an invaluable method to keep your food healthy without compromising on the taste. When steaming, the food never comes into contact with the water – this means that it keeps all the vital nutrients and moisture locked inside which would previously have been lost. There’s no need to use any kind of oil either, which makes it perfect for any summer health kick.

We have a range of great food steamers available on our website; however our Intellisteam Compact in particular would be a great addition to any food lover’s kitchen. It has a number of unique features that not only make cooking healthier, but also help to make it that bit easier. 

For instance, if you fancy steaming more than one ingredient at once then the Intellisteam Compact can help.  It comes complete with two separate compartments that can be controlled independently. This means that combined with its unique timer settings, you can steam your fish and your vegetables and have them both piping hot and ready to serve at the same time.

If you’re busy preparing other parts of the meal, then the Intellisteam Compact’s automatic ‘keep warm’ function will kick in, meaning your steamed food will stay at the correct temperature for up to twenty minutes after finishing.




Although summer is upon us, British weather unfortunately means that barbecuing isn’t always an option. The good news is that the Morphy Richards Intelligrill brings the taste of grilled food straight into your kitchen all year round, rain or shine.

Grilling is the perfect way to inspire and drive any summer health drive; as the food cooks, the fat drips right off meaning that you are in more control of the level of fat you are taking in with every meal. The Morphy Richards Intelligrill has been designed to make this process as simple as possible, and focus any diet. 

For example, the grill has a temperature probe and digital display so that you can accurately monitor your food temperature and ensure your meal is cooked thoroughly.
