Thaw and even ferment
What few know about an appliance like the WSP221710 by Gaggenau is that in addition to avoiding reheating a meal in the traditional way -which often causes it to lose that characteristic flavor- this device is quite useful, like we said before, taking over tedious tasks such as thawing and fermenting.
Yes, among the little-known advantages of warming drawers is the possibility to thaw meats without cooking them and the same applies to soups and stews, without these losing their properties.
But what you would certainly like to know is that this appliance is the perfect ally when it comes to baking. Do you like to make homemade bread, but have no patience to wait for the fermenting phase? Well, place the dough in your drawer WSP221710 by Gaggenau and this step will be done in a short time.
Sober design and high-quality materials
Like other appliances manufactured by the brand, the warming drawer WSP221710 is made with a unique user experience in mind. Manufactured in stainless steel, this drawer has a sturdy glass base, which guarantees that you’ll pay for a high-end appliance that’ll last a long time.
Besides, this appliance is easy to clean and operate. For the former, using a cloth with water and degreaser, or vinegar after each use will be enough, while for the latter, the appliance has a rotary knob that you’ll find when you open the drawer with gentle pressure. This knob will allow you to select the level of heat at which you want to preserve, cook, ferment, or thaw your dish or food.
This warming drawer for recessed installation adapts to any kitchen design. However, Gaggenau advises considering that the appliance will need space at the front for its operation (door opening) when it comes to choosing where to install it.
As you can see, warming drawers not only allow you to keep your dishes ready to eat as if you just cooked them, but they also incorporate additional features designed to increase the versatility of your kitchen and facilitate your life.
