Cooking a La gourmet
SHOGUN by La gourmet has engineered an exciting range of healthy cookware with alkaline benefits. The Shogun Taiyo Cookware series is special as it is reinforced with marble rock particles for durability and infused with Maifan stones for enhanced health benefits.
Ilag laboratory and Shogun made this breakthrough together and Malaysia is the first country to launch the range. It will be first available exclusively at Aeon on a PWP Redemption programme.
What is exciting is that – Ilag laboratory has tested and verified that Shogun Taiyo with Maifan stone has increased in pH value after cooking with water:
– pH value before cooking with water is 7.88 – pH value after cooking with water is 9.46 Maifan Stones or “bakuhanseki” ( Japanese) is a special mineral rock that contains micronutrient elements such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper and selenium – all essential to a healthy human body. Infusing Maifan stone particles into the cookware will help food retain its original flavour, maintain trace elements and the liquid is more alkaline, which is healthy.
Renowned water filters like Berkey of Canada use Maifan stones in their water filters to turn them into alkaline water filters.
The pH of alkaline water for drinking is approximately eight to 10 on the pH- scale. PH value of water is seven, which is neutral.
Herbalists, natural medicine practitioners and organic health enthusiasts have made claims that alkaline water improves health by neutralising acids and flushing the body of dangerous toxins.
It is also claimed that alkaline water improves blood circulation and strengthen one’s immune system and can eliminate stored acidic fat.
Maifan stone is also used in Chinese medicine to treat skin diseases. It is also used in water for cooking rice and making tea as water filtered from Maifan stones enhances the micro nutrient density in the water and increases the effects on health.
Shogun Taiyo by La gourmet is a six- layer system with Tritanium Dura Non- Stick reinforced with marble rock particles and infused with Maifan stones on a specially designed cast aluminium body. This results in superior heat conductivity that saves up to 50% of energy and cooking time compared to normal cookware because more heat is conducted and retained. The series comes with high- quality tempered glass for easy viewing and stay cool bakelite handles.
Customers are in for a huge bargain as this Shogun Taiyo is brought in exclusively for Aeon customers on a PWP Redemption programme with huge savings.
For details, look out for the advertisement in this StarSpecial. CREATING your own wardrobe with the help of a builder or by buying components and putting them together means you get exactly what you need.
First, measure the space you have. You need to measure the height and width of the walls. Your builder can measure to fit but if you’re buying modular pieces and putting them together, you need to include a bit of space so you can set things up. Discuss this with the sales people and check the manual.
The tricky bit is deciding how deep you want it to be. If you can, deeper is better because it gives you more storage space but too deep means you have drawers you never see the back of.
Second, keep track of your clothing. Divide them into things that have to hang in short spaces ( shirts) long spaces ( coats) and what goes in drawers ( socks and knickers). Ties and scarves may be bundled.
Third, decide what you want in terms of storage space. You need to consider shelves, rods, baskets and drawers as well as hooks. There are loads of applications online that will help you decide this. All you need to do is plug in the space you have and then the number of items you have, for example, 10 pairs of shoes, 12 shirts, eight dresses, etc. Google “closet design app” for good links.
Fourth, decide on wire or solid systems. Wire is excellent for fighting damp and tends to be a bit cheaper whereas solid wood tends to last a lot longer and be stronger. Always look for something that’s easy to clean. This is especially true with wood because you don’t want to end up having to buy special expensive cleaners.
