What should I do before using my plancha for the first time?
Once this is done, you can heat the plate for a few minutes.
All you have to do now is start your first plancha baking !
What do I need to know before I do my first plancha baking?
As far as the use of fat on baking trays is concerned, we recommend that they be added just before cooking food. By letting oil heat on the cooktop for too long, it may char and this is not good for your health.
What type of gas should I use?
How do I connect my plancha to my gas bottle?
It is a standard tuyau used for the majority of gas barbecues and planchas. This type of hose can be found in shops or supermarkets but also here on our Vivaplancha.com website, for which we offer you preferential negotiated rates.
Plancha cooking: is a Vivaplancha gas plancha more efficient than an electric table plancha?
The advantage of the Vivaplancha gas plancha is really its power and heat diffusion.
Is the cooking result better than that obtained with a barbecue?
An electric, gas or charcoal barbecue will never produce the cooking qualities that plancha brings. Indeed, on a barbecue, fats fall on embers or flames through the grate and emit toxins harmful to health.
As a result the quality of grill cooking is much better than that of a barbecue and that is why this cooking method is healthier !
Can we really cook everything with the plancha-grill?
The white meats that are very dry when cooked on the barbecue are much softer and juicy à la plancha, vegetables can be cooked without adding fat and there is the pleasure of cooking fish.
Unlike barbecuing, la plancha seizes food and does not "carbonize" it , you will no longer taste like burning on your plates !
Small plus: On Vivaplancha planchas, you benefit from 2 or 3 adjustment buttons burners to adjust the flame power to the types of food being cooked.
