    Yes I did thanks

    I'm making the chilli con carne for my DH tonight. What should I serve this with? The recipe just sounds like a big bowl of mince & beans!! Or is that all it's supposed to be?

    We usually have it with rice Or tortillas crisped up in the oven for dipping!


    AQUILAH - the meat cookbook is my most-used, I love it!

    I've just ordered mine and I am SO worried about this! Are you sure you couldn't get the demo person out again to run you through a few more things? My demo lady stays for 2.5 hours on delivery and makes a few things to get me started.

    I agree with Thermy. A week is a very short time to decide you don't like it. What have you made so far? I don't use mine every day, but I do love it. It makes everyday things so much easier - sauces, rice, steamed veg etc plus all the other stuff it can do.

    I hardly use mine for mains, but to make things like pizza dough, bread dough, yoghurt, béchamel sauce, custard, muffins, dips, etc. it saves so much time. Maybe you need to try some different sorts of things.

    Oh that's a pity. I've had mine for 19 months and I still use it 3+ times a day. Almost all of our main meals are made in there plus lots of snack things. I also use it for things like grating cheese

    For things like grating cheese i think about setting it up and doing it, but then it's just easier and quicker to grab the grater..? Less set up, less clean up... I did have the lady come again but she didn't offer to make anything and to be honest wasn't very helpful, she also put off every single person at my party from buying

    Iv made mash potato, was like liquid, made bikkies and burnt them in my silly oven, I made porridge that was good but a pita to clean from the blades, it just seems to take longer than normal cooking. Also I only have the main cookbook it comes with and there's not much that interests me, perhaps I should just preserver and grab some more cook books? maybe make a cocktail in it first off haha!!

    Do you need to follow the cook books? I like to make my own meals from scratch and I think that's the problem, I feel like I'm forced to follow instructions when I just want to make my own recipes, if that makes sense?
