I love this! Bought two weeks ago and find it easy to use and easy to clean. For those that have complained about the browning plate getting hot - I find the stir function stops veg sticking. You do need slightly longer cooking time for some vegetables but it is easy to add extra cooking time. The blender makes lovely velvety soup - a really superior liquidising function. This is definitely a piece of equipment that will remain out on the kitchen counter with no chance of gathering dust!

This is a very honest and heartrending story but also an inspirational one to those of us that have survived abusive relationships.

This is such an honest and straightforward book and will touch the hearts of all who read it.
