I agree, there's nothing like real people's experiences rather than books with a commercial agenda.

Same here- when I got my first cookbook I was intimidated by it even though just about a month later I'm eyeing some recipies- to start with I just wanted to be able to do things like oven chips with sausages/ frozen fish etc whilst getting comfortable with using the oven and this was full of how to bake cakes/cook roast dinners/make shepherds pie from scratch etc

So I came here and almost 4 weeks later ~I'm considering a roast dinner Sunday because I've now got the confidence to do it!

a little miffed now !!!!

Post  daxian on 15.02.14 14:57

hi all ...
as the title may suggest ,i am not too happy with my purchase!!
bought the visicook multifunction CR3 12 ltr at what i thought was a bargain price ...£29 !!!!
when i unboxed it ,found there was only one rack, a pair of tongs (for lifting the rack ) and a lid holder/stand.
according to the manual there should be two racks ,a low and a high one ,so i went all the way back to the shop (15 miles each way) to be told "no there is only one dual purpose rack
if you want another you can buy one online"
looked online at the manufacturers website ,rack £5.95 + p&p ...a further £6.50

then i found that an extender is needed for some cooking,
thats a mere £11.99 + p&p
not looking as good a bargain now !!!!

and to top it all ,while shopping in aldi this weekend....
similar item including all the extras £24.95
ahhhhhhhhhh well !!!! such is life !!!!

You can live without the extender ring unless you're cooking a lot of stuff and need the extra space. You can use the tongs just to take food off the rack- in fact I very quickly worked out it was easier to take food off the rack and transfer it to the plate than lift the rack out. £29 is half what I paid for mine although mine did come with the extender ring and pretty much all the accesories I need

hi LesleyM...
old adage is true most times "you get what you pay for"
but not in this case, as the aldi one came with everything
for 4-5 pound less lol....
still whats done is done ....
starting to get the hang of the oven now !!!
first effort of chicken lattice and chips for two turned out well
cheated a bit as both were the frozen variety ....
put the lattice in for the reccomended heat/time ,as for a fan oven ,but had to turn down the temperature ,as on the high rack they were browning rather quickly !!!
followed one of the tips from here and got a pizza mesh and did the chips on that ,just popped them on top of the lattice
as i dont have two racks,about 15 mins into the cooking time of the lattice....perfect !!!!
going to try roast lamb and roast potatoes today !!!!
