Love this machine!

published

Great machine; paid under $249 (well under normal Retail) but it's just as good as my D-I-L's much more expensive Thermomix. Love that it weighs ingredients as you add them to bowl! Cooks evenly and quickly; so many recipes adapt to this style of cooking. Add ingredients, set timer, speed etc. and then walk away. Very happy with my purchase. Fully recommend.

Purchased in January 2020 at eBay for A$249.00.

A good machine that compares with the best

published

This biochef mycook is excellent value for money compared with the overpriced Thermomix and cheaper alternatives like the Bellini. I paid only $798 from vitality4life. I love induction cooking on the stove so I’m glad the Biochef is induction as well. Online recipes from other mixers have adapted well in general. It’s been a great investment for me. My only negative feedback would be that I haven’t yet figured out if/how the blades can be easily reversed a lot of thermo recipes are set to reverse. I’ve just been using the mixing insert or using speed 1 and it’s worked out ok. Very happy customer!

Very Good Machine

published

This is a great all round machine. It is robust and doesn't miss a beat. Recipes from other like products are easy to transfer to this one and I have had success with most of them, first time. It is quieter and more powerful than the Bellini I replaced this with.

I am happy with most recipes I have tried.

published

However, I haven't used it as much as I thought. Perhaps in winter I will make more soups and caseroles. Cleaning. Even when I remove the blade I have to check no food is caught in the stem part, otherwise the jug is easy to clean. Would like a better selection of recipes. I have adapted a few from other machines. In fact making some steamed pork and mushroom balls tonight which I have made before and were delicious.

Has some good applications

published

I only gave it a 3 star as I find the lid difficult to press on, in fact I have to place it on the floor to allow enough pressure to press on, the same with the steamer. I followed the recipes out of the recipe book, but found things were burning on the bottom. I rang Vitality4life and they suggested different heat settings and times which helped. I also find the recipes use very large quantities of oil. Now for some positives, its great it has the scales for weighing. I like steaming vegetables, rice cooks well, makes great hollandaise. My real suggestion that would love, is for a better recipe book or an alternative source for some recipes.

Great

published

I've really enjoyed my Bio! It's easy to use with comparable function of the competitors at a fraction of the cost. Even has a superior heating element and stainless steel steamer. It clear a easily and does all I need-grind spices, mill almonds, cook, steam and knead etc.

The machine can be noisy at high speeds like similar products and I don't love the scales for weighing things like flour. They can skip and jump especially if u knock the jug whilst weighing. I also prefer to make cakes in my stand mixer as larger quantities can become gluggy in the Bio. Still do all my prep in it though

Very happy for price point

Best All-in-one cooking machine ever.

published

I used to be the worlds worst cook. I was that bad, I could burn water. With the MyCook I can't go wrong. Cooking by numbers and following the cook book is so easy and the food tastes amazing. I would pay double what I paid off The Home website.

I love my MyCook

published

I have tried other thermomachines and they are great but the MyCook is even better... I finally made a mayo that just worked with the MyCook. The recipe book is easy to follow. I love the stainless steel rice basket and steaming tray. I love that it makes a beautiful spaghetti bol without having to cook the mince in the rice basket. Its a hard working quality product.

The perfect all in one. I can not live without!

published

The Biochef Mycook, is the perfect all in one machine.
It is so simple to use, quick and easy.
I love that it measures with the scales & I have used it so much, I find I don't need recipes & can make up my own.
Even though I absolutely love to cook & create in the kitchen, being a new mum & not having the time on my hands like I used to, this has been a godsend.
Now if only I can make it precook by itself before I'm home from work.

Perfect risotto every time

published

I am so pleased with the my cook. It really is as simple as making the recipe as per the instructions. It cooks a perfect risotto every time. Not only that, but I've learnt how to use mine so well that I swap ingredients and have started doing my own recipes. I just follow the base guide and off I go! Such a time saver.

Hi Megan, so sorry for the delay. Firstly to answer your cleaning question, we recommend BiCarb Soda and Vinegar on all our products, try making a little paste and with a non-abrasive sponge try circular movements and gently rub. With regards to burning the rice, which recipe are you following Megan. Regards Bec V4L

Thanks for your response. The recipe is Duck confit risotto with mushrooms which is in the cookbook that comes with the product

Vitality L.BioChef

Ok I just looked at the recipe. Is there an option to stir half way through cooking? And is the rice not only burnt but over done, I am wondering if you should have less cooking time? Maybe try 10 mins?

I have a MyCook and find it really difficult to get the lid to close easily, necessitating a really hard push to get it to snap into the right position. Need a solution.

Working with your customer support/technician I managed to get my problem resolved really quickly. It was so simple...I had my lid seal upside down. The writing on it was difficult for me to read and I had not noticed this. So for those people who are having a similar issue, take note.
