Samovar Russian invention justly considered, but similar in design of the device, invented independently, can be found in some other cultures. Perhaps the most notable of these is the Chinese samovar - Hogoev. With his Russian samovar in common heating pipe, located in the center tank.

The process of cooking meat this way takes a few seconds, and each of the participants in the meal has the ability to control the degree of provarki meat to suit your taste. The meat is then eaten with various sauces. There Hogoev model in which the internal volume of the pot is divided into two compartments. One compartment is used for cooking meat, and the second for cooking side dishes, such as vegetables. As for the origin Hogoev, it is believed that his predecessors were born in the damp climate of northern regions of China where boatmen (fishermen) felt the need to maintain your health food hot during operation.
