For the risotto/chicken thing/steamed sausages did you use the recipe book? If you did that would seriously put me off.
I went to a demo and the food was divine.

I have one. I have had it for maybe 2 months. Don't use it heaps I admit.
The anzac biscuits are good, mushroom risotto is nice, pizza dough is good. Still sorting out the best amount of time to knead bread for to get it not tough.
Butter chicken wasn't butter chicken at all, it was fairly nice, just not butter chicken. Mashed potatoes are good, butter is good but it doesn't keep for a huge length of time and there is only 2 of use so it's not real economical to make it that way.
Still haven't had a huge chance to play with it really. MIL loves hers.

Thanks for this thread.
I was contemplating getting one with some unexpected tax money. But... I also need to save for a car so have been pouting about it all.
Totally knew it is not all its cracked up to be!

I'm really struggling to understand the appeal of these? That said I've never been around one and don't know anyone with one. But what exactly makes it so amazing and worth so much money? Is it some kind of vault that you throw ingredients into and it spits out food 2 mins later?
So with the anzac biscuits, does it cook them too? I'm confused.

Was contemplating getting one and was worried about all these things! Think I'll save my money and stick with ol' faithful slow cooker lol

I KNOW how much all my friends love theirs though. One member who I am friends with on facebook is amazing with hers and has a food diary of all her cooking. She makes me cry she's so awesome and I am just rubbish!
It just weighs, melts and mixes all the ingredients and then you have to put them in the oven like any other biscuit.

I had a demo today and the lady made strawberry slushie, dip, bread, risotto and chocolate custard. She was here for 1.5 hours and wasn't busy doing stuff the whole time. It was so quick!
She just threw the stuff in for the bread and then 2 min later it was ready to rest and then cook. I was amazed by the way she ground wheat up to make the flour for the bread! Also she said that she has used hers to turn a punnet of strawberries into a jar of jam...
The appeal for me is the ease of cooking with whole, natural foods. No icing sugar? Just grind up some raw sugar and make your own! Hungry for dessert? Whip up a slushie with a punnet of strawberries and some ice and a little bit of sugar!

I think the slushie was the sorbet? They usually make a sorbet at the demos
