My name is Vojta Vevera and I am the force behind www.homecookingtech.com the website that aims for making cooking easier every day.
There is a couple of reasons why I have decided to go on this journey.
The first one is that I have spent most of my professional work life as an IT support guy. You know that person in your office who sits behind his computer and can solve all of your computer-related issues within minutes? Yep, that’s me. And as passionate, I am about computers the same way I feel about cooking.
I tend to get giddy as a little girl when someone asks me about home cooking. Temperatures, styles, cutting ingredients, what spices fit the best to specific meat, or which technique I would use to make the soup. I love it all. On this website, I am trying to do my best to translate the skill of explaining how things work or how to solve difficulties in the most understandable way possible.
The second major one is the problems. Yes, problems, issues, complications, call them whatever you want. We all have them, and it doesn’t matter if you have mad knife skills or you have never even boiled an egg, I am sure that you have had some issues and problems in a kitchen.
The third reason is that I like to learn, discover, and verify new things about cooking. It is always great to find out a new cool cooking technique and transfer it to someone else. For example, recently, I have taught my father in law how to make a perfect poached egg every single time. It is a great thing that I am proud of. I love to transfer these pieces of information to others that may face similar difficulties with anything cooking-related.
I had more than my fair share of them. And even though I have more than 15 years of experience under my belt, I have been able to eliminate some of them. There are those that not only remain but also tend to keep me awake at night.
One of the best solutions to problems and issues in the kitchen are tools and cooking appliances, simply HomeCookingTech (pun intended). Fancy steak dinner for someone you love? Sous-vide is your friend. Running late from work and have to cook for a big family? Don’t worry and grab your instant pot, it is definitely worth it. Have some free time for prep, but want to spend the rest with kids or relaxing? A slow cooker runs to your aid. If you don’t believe me, check here how does the slow cooker work.
I know, it might sound a bit crazy, but believe me, it is a good idea to have a specialized thing for everything. It simplifies your life while giving you a wide range of possibilities.
If you have one thing that can do “everything,” you have to look into the guide to check if You can use it or what temp and program do I have to set the magical box to cook what you want.
Can I open it while it is cooking? Can I add something in while it is cooking? Does it have to be supervised all the time? Can I pause the program and start it again later? And so on and so on… it is mind-numbing.
No, it brings more problems than it is worth. So the best solution is to have a specialized HomeCookingTech for every problem and occasion because, in the end, it saves time, money, effort, and most importantly, nerves.
Sure, you can deep fry in any pot that you already have at home. Still, you have to change the temperature of your stove all the time, up and down, like some crazy alchemist, because you have to have that perfect temp to make chicken crispy, yet not dry, to dine like a king.
And now imagine that you have a machine on which you just set the temp; it heats the oil and cleanly and easily. It does everything you need for deep frying your way to haven. It is becoming obvious now, but the deep fryers are also worth it, even if you are using them just a few times a month.
So what am I doing here?
Saving your money, time, and nerves by doing all the research, testing, and finding out the best thing you can buy and use to make your everyday cooking easier, struggle free, and make yourself available for your loved ones.
That’s my goal. That’s what I am doing here. Because I love everything cooking related. Cooking itself, talking about it, thinking about it, writing about it, and most importantly, helping others cook better and more manageable.
I do hope that you will enjoy your time here and see you in one of my articles.
Have a great day and more comfortable cooking.
