Fasting & Feasting- How Appliances Can Help Make Ramadan Easier

9 Apr 2024

Ramadan, the holiest month in Islam, is a time for fasting, prayer, reflection, and community. As Muslims worldwide observe this sacred month, the significance of family, food, and sharing becomes even more pronounced in the UAE, where the tradition of hospitality is deeply ingrained, preparing meals for iftar (breaking the fast) and suhoor (pre-dawn meal) can be both a joyous occasion and a challenging task. However, with the right kitchen appliances from Super General, you can streamline your cooking process and make Ramadan more manageable and enjoyable.

Take a look at these essential kitchen appliances!

Microwave oven- a versatile appliance, can quickly heat or cook food, making it an indispensable tool during Ramadan. Whether reheating leftovers, warming up soups, or defrosting ingredients, a microwave saves time and effort, especially during busy iftar preparations.

Electric Rice Cooker  
Rice is a staple in many iftar meals, and an electric rice cooker simplifies the cooking process by ensuring perfectly cooked rice every time. With automatic shut-off and keep-warm functions, you can focus on other dishes while your rice cooks perfectly.

Gas Stove
A reliable gas stove is a must-have in any kitchen. It allows you to cook a variety of dishes with precision and control. Whether frying, sautéing, or simmering, a gas stove provides consistent heat for delicious results.

Gas BBQ Grill
Grilling is a popular cooking method during Ramadan, especially for preparing meat and kebabs for iftar gatherings. A gas BBQ grill allows you to grill indoors or outdoors, giving your dishes that smoky flavor without the hassle of charcoal.

Meat Grinder
A meat grinder is essential for homemade kebabs, burgers, or minced meat dishes. With different grinding plates, you can control the texture and consistency of your meat, ensuring delicious results every time.

Mixer Grinder & Blender
A mixer grinder and blender combo are a versatile kitchen tool. It can make smoothies and shakes for suhoor, grind spices, and prepare marinades. With multiple attachments, you can quickly whip up various dishes and beverages to suit your taste.

A toaster is perfect for quickly toasting bread for suhoor or making crispy snacks for iftar. Whether you prefer plain toast or fancy toppings, a toaster adds convenience to your meal preparations.

Beyond the Appliances

Meal planning
Planning your iftar and suhoor meals can streamline your cooking process and ensure you have all the necessary ingredients. Make a weekly meal plan and create a shopping list to avoid last-minute trips to the grocery store.

Prep work!
Prepping ingredients ahead of time can save you valuable minutes during the busy iftar rush. Wash, chop, and marinate vegetables and meats in advance, so all you have to do is cook and assemble your dishes when it's time to break the fast.

Delegate and involve family!
Get your family involved in meal preparations to lighten the workload and foster a sense of togetherness. Assign tasks to each family member based on their abilities and preferences, whether setting the table, chopping vegetables, or stirring the pot.
With the right kitchen appliances and a little planning, you can make Ramadan a time of ease, joy, and spiritual fulfilment. Super General offers a wide range of appliances to simplify your cooking process and enhance your Ramadan experience, allowing you to focus on what truly matters – faith, family, and community.
