Hi Jose and welcome

Welcome

What about cheese on toast or a baked potato. The pitta pizzas are quick and easy and you can use whatever ingredients that you have to hand.

Good Luck

Jose1 here's one thats easy for a first two potatoes prick in a few places with fork rub little veg oil over cook at 200c in the bottom on low rack of oven for 1hr turning halfway through check if cooked by piercing with knife if soft all the way through then remove and serve with topping of choice. Time may differ depending on potatoe size and how many you are cooking no more than six small potatoes at any one time Good Luck

hi Jose
I'm new too, arent the cookers cool i kept just looking at mine too but i'm not posh enough to have a hinged lid Very Happy I couldnt wait to cook something in mine and i did quorn sausages that i had in the freezer for ages i was actually surprised that the oven made them taste better (if thats possible with quorn) I cant wait to give my chilli recipe a go in it now that ive seen we can do things like that.
I hope you find inspiration on here like i have and give it a go you'll be so happy with the end result, happy cooking, debbie xxx

Thanks Debbie I made corned beef Hash today . Am still trying to work out thawing frozen stuff doesnt seem to be in the instructions that came with my machine or in any cook books that my friends have wish i lived nearer them they live in america they have loads books out there , and there oven came with far better instructions even dvd 's too. wish ours did.. Think that companys who make and sell theem here are falling very short with the instructions and receipts too. lots love x

you should try getting in touch with the company that does yours and tell them this, it might just get things changed and ye never know they may send you something, i got mine in TJ Hughes and was only £35 reduced from £45 i was made up coz it came with the extender ring but the instructions i got are very basic which is why i went searching Smile i think i would have prefered a hindged lid now though, it can be awkward as my kichen layout is bloody stupid and i need more workspace really but i'm just so glad i can cook proper food now and no more microwave meals i was getting really fed up of them. corned beef hash is something ive never ever had my mum didnt even cook it and i keep thinking i'll give it a go but never do, you'll have to tell me how you did it and i'll defo give it a go this time Laughing xxx

Hi Jose,
the button / function for WASH can also be the one for THAW, to defrost frozen food. Try defrosting a small amount of food such as frozen peas to check if this works for your oven.

No water or washing up liquid is needed lol!

Hi debbie L It is so simple a mix of halogen and micro power, I love steam bags they a great accessory steam pots and onions in steam bag chopped up of course take only 3 mins if chopped small then add chopped corned beef and put in pyrex dish imix with a little ketchup and few frozen peas but up to you i cook on high rack on 200 for 15mins but keep watching it some days seems quicker then others but its so lush ive cooked it three times in last week with all leftover cornd beef from xmas had 5 tins for some reason. but glad to have it. Hope you now give it a go lots luck love jose
