    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!!
    Get meat on the menu.. My fav book.
    Don't give up! Try mash again, we make it all the time, so good!!!
    I wish your demonstrator was better! You have to love thermie to sell him!!
    I use mine about 2-3 times a day and I've had it for almost 2 years.
    I would keep going, totally worth it!!! I even take it on holidays cause I can't live without it

    Really on holidays? That's dedication!! It can't be as bad as I'm making out then Haha!! Love meat so that sounds good, the demonstrator didn't show me any other books so I'll ask her tomorrow about them. Do you make your own recipes in there? As in chuck in your own random stuff to make a stew etc? Usually I braise the meat and chuck whatever I have veggie wise in with some fresh tomatoes etc etc, can I do that in a thermie?

    Yep., my family loves it, so we take it with us!
    I used to be a chef so hated it at first. Now we create our own recipes! It's much easier than it seems.
    I make peanut butter, nuttella, rice milk, butter everything in it
    And main meals most nights. We love the varoma to steam fish, veggies and puddings. Makes great rice too
    Ok., I'll stop now

    set up??

    my thermie LIVES on the bench - it never goes away

    I 'grated' parmesan, tasty and mozzarella tonight for our pizzas - took 8 seconds for each one (and probaly 5 seconds to chop into squares bt I did that while teh other was grating!)
    - grating cheese is a pet hate of mine - have taken off many a knuckle.

    Most things I make wash out well - learnt a new trick with the dough -> once you tip it out - whiz the blades again for a few seconds SO easy to clean!

    TBH I fnd it easier to quickly pull apart the base and clean rather than get stuck into it with a brush.

    Yeah iv been pulling the whole thing apart to clean each time, I'll cool dinner tomorrow night with my own recipe and let you know how I go, hopefully without the cookbook restraints it will be easier.

    Can you add flavor to the fish? Isn't it bland just steamed?

    The cooking night I went to the other night showed us how to make seasoned salt - perfect for fish.

    couple of slices of lemon and garlic and a sprig of rosemary toasted in oven.
    Thrown in with some rock salt and blitzed - smelt gorgeous!
    Then she scraped 'most' out but left a little stuck to the bowl and made a cheese patte - that was served with the onion relish.

    OMG - *drool*
