Last week, I joined fellow foodies in a fun-filled cooking demo held at GalaStars Culinary School. Together with Samsung Digital Appliances Ambassador Chef Ernest Gala, our Samsung Cooking Workshop started with a short introduction about their Samsung Smart Oven.

How to use Samsung Smart Oven

For people who are always on the go, we all need a faster way to cook restaurant quality kind of food and not just ordinary fried chicken and instant noodles that we always eat when we are in a hurry.

The good thing with this Samsung Smart Oven is its multiple function. It can be used as Microwave, an Oven, a Grill, a Convection Oven and it can also be used in fermenting dough and even yogurt. During our mini cooking session, we were able to experience using the Smart Oven’s Microwave, Convection and Grill functions.
