STEAM-COOKING bags for the oven or microwave are becoming increasingly popular the world over – but sometimes a client wants the bag to vent in a very exact, very precise way.
Sirane’s Sira-Cook™ Sira-Vent™ does just that – it vents where you want it to. Which makes it easy for the end user, they can see where it will vent and are expecting it.
Sira-Cook™ Sira-Vent™ allows food to be heat-sealed in a bag which can be simply oven-cooked or microwaved straight from chilled or frozen. A central vent opens during cooking, allowing the steam to escape but making sure all sauces stay within the pack.
Jeremy Haydn-Davies, sales director, said: “This is consumer friendly packaging, where food handling is kept to a minimum, no need to transfer from pack to tray; it’s the uncomplicated way to cook or simply heat-up meat, fish and vegetables. The food can be simply steam cooked in the pack, enhancing the food’s natural fresh flavour.
“Steam cooking is the healthy way to cook. All the flavours and goodness of the food is retained in the bag, along with the juices, and simple sauces and marinades can be added to the seafood, poultry and vegetables to make a taste sensation.
“But Sira-Cook™ Sira-Vent™ allows you to control exactly where the bag vents. It is designed for microwave use - although it can also be cooked in the oven, where controlling the vent can be useful to stop any juices escaping during the cooking process.
“There are many reasons why you might want to control the vent, but one of the main reasons is it you want to be 100% certain no juices will escape from the bag. If you want to be absolutely 100% sure, especially if the meal has a lot of liquid, Sira-Vent is the answer.
“For other customers, it might simply be that they want to assure the user that it will vent, that there’s no need to pierce the bag, and show them where it will happen. So for that reason the vent can be a feature of the bag or hidden, depending on preference.”
