What we like and what we don’t like about Smart Cone
Day by day, new kitchen accessories are being introduced in order to make our lives easier. Compared to earlier days, modern market consists of thousands of kitchen accessories that claims to be very handy. However, when it comes to the practical circumstances, only some of these products are actually useful. Others simply fail to work as they promise. Over the past period, we have noticed that a large number of “As Seen on TV” products are being advertised and Smart Cone is one of such product that entered lately. Despite the claims they have made, we are going to emphasize what we like and what we don’t like about this product. This information can become pretty handy if you have seen this product by any chance and are interested in buying it.
What we like
Technically it works as a cone that has a narrower base and a wider opening in the top. This formation can let you fry or boil food on your favorite pan without actually splashing or spitting oil or water on your cookers or counters even if you stir, mix or dip food. Particularly, when it comes to cooking food stuff in large amounts, these spits are a regular occurrence and yet this product can address that issue pretty convincingly.
The open top of this product gives you enough space to stir, mix or manipulate the ingredients freely. You can reach the food inside the pan even when the cone is on because of the large opening it has on the top.
Smart Cone is manufactured to be compatible with almost all the pans and pots you will use to do food preparation. Therefore, you can use the same Smart Cone with all the pans without worrying about buying multiple cones. Because it attaches to each pan pretty effortlessly, you can easily switch the cone between the pans.
This product is made to be compatible with dishwasher; you don’t need to worry about washing it by hand. All you have to do is to put it in the dishwasher after you are done with it. Because of the use of top quality silicone and stainless steel components it has, you don’t need to worry about its durability.
It comes with a very useful handle which is completely friendly to the user. No matter how hot the pan you are using, the handle will stay cool to touch and that allows you to manipulate the cone pretty easily.
When it comes to storing this product, you can do it using very less space; Smart Cone is designed with a collapsible design which can be folded to flat.
It doesn’t have any toxic substances according to the claims made by the manufacturers. Since the main materials thy have used are silicone and stainless steel, we can agree with their claims.
What we don’t like
Despite their claims about a ‘universal fit’ we find that it doesn’t match with larger pans. This can be an issue if you intend to use Smart Cone with a large pan or a pot.
Although we don’t have other serious concerns about the functionality of this product, we are a little worried about its availability. As we are aware, this product is not available in local stores.
