Let’s find out… On July 25, 2016, Jenn-Air announced the release of a new 30-inch induction range for a very reasonable price. In a press release, Brian Maynard, marketing director for Jenn-Air, stated that these ranges were “designed to fit impeccably into the standard 30-inch space so frequently found in North American kitchens.” An induction range may take some time to learn how to use, but once you have experienced the benefit and convenience of owning a Jenn-Air induction range you are likely to never return to a conventional gas or electric range again. For those of you with lifestyles that have you jumping from one task to the next from the moment your morning alarm sounds off to the time the sun goes down, we want you to know that an induction range will help save you time and money. An induction range uses less electrical energy, heats up quicker, boils water faster, and generally just cooks food a lot more rapidly and efficiently than other types of ranges. In brief, here is how the induction principle works. The ferromagnetic field of iron or stainless steel cookware interacts with the electromagnetic field of the range and like magic the two compounds combine to produce the heat required to cook your food. Well, we know that may sound like a lot of hocus-pocus and it’s probably information that you don’t need to cook, steam, boil, bake, or broil delicious recipes for your family and friends. But wouldn’t it be extraordinary if you could avoid reservations every night of the week? Wouldn’t it be sensational if you could come home and in a short time have a mouth-watering meal cooked and on the table before the evening news was over? Let’s take a look at one enticing recipe for you to try.

Filled with delight from the moment you remove the meat and vegetables from your brand new Jenn-Air Refrigerator, your mouth begins to water as you anticipate the enchanting delight of a home cooked meal. Something you have been craving for a long time. You chop-chop-chop onions, carrots, and potatoes in preparation for an appetizing and delectable lamb stew. Your new stainless steel cookware is begging to be used. The anticipation of your first home cooked meal on your new induction range is a dream come true. You are so pleased and happy with your new Jenn-Air appliances that you are almost brought to tears of joy. But maybe those tears are from the onions. You know this will be the first and last refrigerator and range that you will ever have to purchase. You are confident that with a Jenn-Air cooking appliance, food is going to cook and taste the way you expect.

Oven Lamb Stew

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 pounds lean lamb, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 medium onion, sliced

2 cups water

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons cold water

1 cup fresh or frozen peas

3 medium carrots, sliced

4 red potatoes, quartered

1 stalk celery, sliced

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large heavy iron or stainless steel skillet, (if you are cooking on a Jenn-Air induction range) heat the oil and brown the lamb. Add the onion and saute for 5-minutes, stirring frequently. Drain off the fat. Add the water and Worcestershire sauce. Bake, covered, for 1.5 hours.

2. Remove the skillet from the oven. In a small bowl, blend the flour with the water to make a thin paste. Add the paste to the skillet and blend well. Add the peas, carrots, red potatoes, celery, and salt and pepper. Bake, covered, for 30 minutes longer.

Cooking with an induction appliance will take some time getting used to simply because the energy it produces is based on a different principle than a conventional gas or electric range. An induction range will save you time and money. The benefits far outweigh the learning curve that is naturally associated with a different technology. We suggest retaining expert appliance repair specialists who will have the training, knowledge, expertise, and correct tools to repair or perform general maintenance issues.
