#ElectroluxLive Cook-off Challenge (A Recap)7:52 AM
The Food52 and Electrolux Cooktop Challenge held last November 6, 2013 was a complete blast. All viewers got an opportunity to learn new cooking tips and techniques from the three beautiful and talented chefs invited by Food 52. These chefs are Phoebe Lapine, Jennifer Perillo, and Camille Becerra. There was a live streaming at Food52.com for the said event which was hosted by Amanda and Merrill.

The said show's challenge was to prepare a Pan Roasted Cauliflower using different cooktops. Each chef was asked to execute the recipes and cook on a gas, electric and induction cooktop.
This is the final dish cooked using the induction cooktop.
Towards the end of the show, the hosts asked the viewers which dish prepared looks better. Of course, I chose the one cooked with induction cooktop. Those prepared with gas and electric cooktop are not appealing compared to the one prepared with induction cooktop.
There are many things I learned from the show. I'm glad I was able to free my 1PM schedule to tune in for the live streaming of the challenge. The most important learning of all is about induction cooking. Induction cooking uses induction heating to directly heat a cooking vessel, as opposed to using heat transfer from electrical coils or burning gas as with a traditional cooking stove. One of its amazing benefits is it allows users to cook faster and save more energy. The induction cooker used is more energy-efficient as compared to a traditional electric cooking surface.
During the live stream, viewers were invited to participate and join the conversation by using the hashtag #ElectroluxLive hashtag. They are given a chance to answer questions from the hosts and to ask about recipes or cooking tips from the three chefs. One lucky viewer won cooktop from Electrolux.
