On the weekend of 29 & 30 September, we gave people all over the UK the chance to host official Philips Fresh Cooks parties to show how easy and fun cooking can be!
The lucky party hosts received an amazing Philips Fresh Cooks party pack containing a selection of goodies to help cook up a storm in the kitchen including cook along music, plus other goodies. There were also some fantastic party-day competitions and party activities where partygoers won some great prizes!
The Party Pack
Each party host received the latest addition to the Philips cooking range – developed in conjunction with celebrity chef Jamie Oliver – the HomeCooker.
1. Best Group Photo
WINNER: Amanda Hopson aka Amanda Sporoate
PRIZE: 10 JAMIE OLIVER COOKBOOKS & 10 JAMIE AT HOME VOUCHERS EACH WORTH £20 – THAT’S A COOKBOOK & A VOUCHER FOR EVERYONE AT THE PARTY!
2. HomeCooker Review
WINNER: Laura Ritchie:
The Home Cooker really has transformed our home life even in the first week of owning it. In our family we really value good food, and food preparation comes at a cost – time. After a full day at work (both of us work full time) we want fresh, hot, good food and we want to spend time with our three children.
We had no idea just how much time was spent over the stove stirring and watching various pots and pans so everything comes out ok. With the Home Cooker it really means 15 mins prep time, and the cooking time is time for YOU. No watching, no stirring, no worrying, and the food is amazing. That means an extra 1-2 hours with the family AND healthy, restaurant quality meals.
It is truly easy to use, and once you have mastered the basic recipes the possibilities are endless. Easy to clean as well. The design is more than clever. It takes up no more room than a toaster (less than most toasters in fact) and is more useful than just about anything than the kitchen tap.
I cannot recommend it enough! The time you save combined with the quality of the food is worth the price x 10.
great design, great recipes, easy to use, easy to clean, compact, value for money
Yes, I would recommend this product.
