Why Buy The Presto Pizzazz Plus Rotating Oven?
The rotating oven from Presto Pizzazz provides a better alternative to reheating leftover food or pre-packaged frozen food. Unlike a microwave oven, the Presto Pizzazz appliance properly cooks the food as if it just came out of the oven. The size of the heating surface makes the oven suitable for pizza, bread, meat and other kinds of food.
Heating up leftovers can be a pain for many people. If you use the oven to reheat your food, you often end up with a mushy mess with a cold center. Your other option is to fire up the stove or oven to cook the food the old fashion way. The problem with the second option is the time and fuel it can consume.
This is where the Presto Pizzazz Plus Rotating Oven comes in. The cooking appliance provides a convenient and efficient way of heating frozen, pre-packaged, or leftover food. This is thanks to the powerful heating element of the oven and rotating cooking surface that allows for an even heating of your food.
The cylindrical shape of the oven does not mean that you are limited to just cooking pizza on it. You can use the appliance for various kinds of food such as chicken nuggets, French fries, biscuits, and muffins. As long as the food is small enough to fit under the upper heating element of the oven, they are going to come out properly cooked.
The Presto brand has been an innovator in the cooking industry since 1905. The company’s historical roots come from the creation of pressure canners for use in the foodservice industry. For more than a century, Presto diversified its product offerings that make it convenient for anyone to cook their food.
In the case of the Pizzazz Plus Rotating Oven, the appliance aims to let you cook your pizza conveniently. This is possible with the dual heating elements and rotating surface. Both heating elements deliver up to 1,235 watts worth of heat, this is nearly as hot as the most traditional oven can deliver.
In terms of heating our boxed pizza, the rotating oven does its job as promised in its video. Giving us hot and soft pre-packaged pizza with its toppings sizzling from the heat within 10 to 12 minutes. This is not usually possible with a conventional oven, which requires a significant amount of time for you to pre-heat them at a certain temperature. Once the oven reaches that specific temperature, your pizza usually takes more than 20 minutes to cook. Presto Pizzazz shaves off half of the cooking time to give you a freshly cooked Italian meal quickly.
What amazes us is how the rotating oven can cook extremely frozen pizzas with ice surrounding it. You do not have to place the pizza in a microwave or let it stand in room temperature for a long time just to defrost the food. Simply place the pizza on the rotating oven and let it do its magic. Your pizza will come out soft and juicy.
Presto Pizzazz Plus Rotating Pizza Oven
In addition to a faster cooking time, Pizzazz Plus use less energy than traditional ovens. Presto’s appliance utilizes only 40 percent energy than electric ovens when cooking your pizza. This results in a low electrical bill at the end of the month if you regularly use your oven for various meals.
Another claim of Presto is that the rotating oven works with other pre-packaged food. Naturally, we test out this theory by cooking pre-packaged chicken nuggets. The result is a soft chicken nugget with a crusty skin. The Pizzazz Plus can even bake cookies, hot dogs, bacon, and quesadillas. However, the rotating oven will not properly cook thickly frozen food. Attempting to cook a frozen nugget, for example, will give you a hard square bread with a cold center.
