I finally like cooking again! And it’s even more enjoyable for me with iLevel® technology on my Edge® 3 Power Wheelchair. Here are some of the ways that iLevel helps me in the kitchen.
When it comes to cooking, iLevel® technology is fantastic because it saves me time. It only takes me 15 seconds to go all the way up to reach the top cabinets, then all the way down to reach what I need in the bottom cabinets. This means a lot less time wasted. I can reach my spices and pull out any pots and pans I need.
Reaching the Things I Need
Like most kitchens, mine has multiple levels. The bar in my kitchen is pretty high, higher than the countertops and the stovetop. With iLevel, it’s easy for me to adjust my height. I can raise and lower my power wheelchair seat to go from cutting up vegetables or meat on the bar to cooking on the stove.
Cooking Safely with iLevel
Before I had iLevel, I used to burn myself all the time. When cooking bacon, the popping grease would hit me in the face. Not anymore! My face thanks iLevel for that. I can raise my power wheelchair seat so that my face is well above the cooking surface and I can see what I am doing. iLevel gives me the extra height I need to cook confidently and safely.
Some of My Favorite Dishes
I have a few specialties when cooking. I make a pretty good meatloaf. I can cook a whole chicken in the oven, as well as green bean casserole. I really like cooking on the grill too.
I enjoy making new foods and trying out new dishes on my friends. I hope you all feel the same. So, go have a dinner party and see how it goes!
