    Firstly WOW what a true friend hehe I'd never part with mine not even for an hour😢

    I'd do the basics, risotto, a soup, salad and a cake all in the same sitting maybe even some pizza dough show him how much you can do in an hour 👍

    Tonight I did spaghetti carbonara, magic bean cake, vanilla custard and some baby food in half n hour of course not including the baking time but in that time I washed up and just waited for our magic bean cake for desert whilst DD had her pasta.

    How did you go? What did you make? Did you convince your DH?

    I made heaps!

    Pesto, mango chutney, the quirky salted caramel and bananna ice cream, almond butter, the batter for besan breads, saag for dinner, mango Weiss bars, a couple of little bits from the wholefood simply website (peppermint cups and something else), hollandaise sauce.

    Question.....I was going to make eggs benny but after the hollandaise is done it takes 13 minutes to poach the eggs....doesn't it end up cold? I thighs it was best served straight away? I ended up cooking the eggs separately on the stove while the hollandaise cooked in the tmx.

    I didn't love love it, I loved what it could do , but I can't see myself using it to make dinners, but more the extra bits. DH was impressed but agrees with my thoughts. We liked it enough to buy!

    That sounds great, you certainly made the most of it!

    With the hollandaise, I usually keep it in the thermoserver while I'm making the eggs so it stays warm.

    I find it good for quick easy meals, like steamed meat and veg with a soup/carb or sauce in the jug. It definitely has its limitations and for more intricate meals I do need to use the stove/ oven etc but it's still so useful as a tool on those days.

    Ok, I don't have a thermoserver. I might have to look at getting one if I'm making things that need to be kept warm. Thanks!
