Copper cookware cooking tutorials a hit among netizens


DUNGUN: A senior lecturer here never thought videos of his cooking using copper cookware uploaded on social media platform could capture the attention of many and attract more followers.

Arma Mohd Faizal Abu Bakar’s initial intention was to use the cooking tutorials as one of the teaching and learning (PDP) methods during the movement control order (MCO) period which was enforced on March 18.

The 34-year-old Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Terengganu lecturer said he never expected the videos which were made as reference materials for his 76 culinary students could get an average of 30,000 views at any one time.

“I’m using copper kitchen utensils such as cooking pan, pot, ladle, Malay dessert mold, spoon and fork.

“The use of copper cookware gives the tutorials a little ‘twist’ in terms of cooking presentation…it can also indirectly help promote copper products as one of the Terengganu’s arts and heritage,” he told Bernama when met at his house in Balai Besar here today.

The videos among others showcased tutorials to make Malay desserts such as bingka ubi kayu, cara berlauk, kuih bakar kemboja, kuih abok-abok, tepung gomak, seri muka, koleh kacang, kuih pulut inti, rempeyek, kuih bunga ros and roti jala

Despite facing several issues including limited access to the Internet among his students, Arma said he still managed to upload 30 cooking tutorial videos throughout the month of Ramadan.

“The videos can be referred to at any time, that’s why I tried my best to make interesting and different videos by using copper cooking appliances.

“Alhamdulillah, based on the feedback received, more people are interested in getting to know about copper cookware as they are more practical and have the luxurious look,” said Arma who intends to have more copper products in his collection.

Arma who is also the UiTM Terengganu Corporate Communications Unit head said he bought his first copper pot in early 2018 and up to now, he has various collections of copper cooking appliances worth over RM10,000.

“Since then, I started collecting other copper cookware items including the custom-made ones,” he said adding that the products had also started to gain interest among his family members and friends.

The Selangor-born added that besides its durability, copper is a good heat conductor which can maintain constant and stable cooking temperature.

Arma also hoped that he could inspire others especially the younger generation to elevate the copper industry in Terengganu. – Bernama
