Hotpot essentials for your party of 5 this CNY [Get S$8 off!]

·Lifestyle Editor

As we wistfully scroll through photos of big Chinese New Year gatherings of yesteryears, we have come to accept that this will be yet another year of restricted visits to our extended family. On the bright side, there's more time for us to bond, chill and get up to date with our loved ones. And there's no better way to embrace deep bonding than over hotpot, grill or a combination of both. 

Why not? Hotpot or steamboat is the perfect solution for the non-chefs amongst us, homemakers who have run out of meal ideas, and those of us who simply crave hotpots, grills and similar. These meals are as simple as making a grocery run (we save you a trip with online links below), washing, cutting and plating them. Viola, a one-time preparation is all you need for two meals and more. Absolutely no cooking skills required!

If you are not already on the hotpot bandwagon, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a list of steamboat, smokeless grill and BBQ appliances. For those who crave for authentic flavours, we even found a charcoal cooker for you! Of course, simplify your preparation process with delicious soup bases (links provided) for the upcoming Chinese New Year parties. Get up to 25% off on Chinese New Year Essentials on Amazon.

From 24 - 28 January, get a S$8 bonus Amazon.sg eGift Card when you spend S$68 or more on eGift Cards.

Happy hosting and happy bonding!
