Best thing i have ever cooked with
It seems that i have had my flavorchef forever. It has been great, even after i dropped it. It has now mostly lost its non-stick but it is still the greatest to cook with. If you ever bring them back, i will be one of the first to buy another one and probably a spare for when that one gives up the ghost. Please consider bringing them back.

can't live without it
I love my FlavourChef. It sits on my bench all the time and i cook just about everything in it. Cooks food very quickly eg eggs, pancakes, bacon, fish, steaks, vegetables, scones..... Heats up most foods really well without drying out. Love that the top heats up too. Easy to clean with a bamboo wash cloth, wipes up all the oil easily. My favourite atm is two wrap breads with cheese and leftovers in the middle and drizzled with olive oil. My family loves them. Good as a sweet with fruit and cream cheese and pecan nuts.
I could go on.... but i won't.
Use it every day
We have had our flavour chef about 4 years now. I use it every day. I take it on holidays and it is great. People ask me about it. Often how much is it ? Where did you get it ? It is only now that I need to start using a small amount of oil as cheese is starting to stick to it, pork has always stuck to it. But cleaning has never been a problem, I have just soaked the pan in water and it cleans really well. All good things come to an end and my flavour chef is coming to the end of its life, but it has worked hard. Listening to some of the complaints I just wonder if the new ones are as good as mine.
Love it, I use it all the time
I bought this while I was on maternity leave off of an infomercial I was apprehensive at first as I haven't spent that much on an item. Well it's changed my life, I cook everything in it from bacon to pancakes to potatoes. I hardly ever use my oven. I've had it over 2 years and it's just starting to loose it's non stick so I use a spray oil now, but I love it, I came across this site as I was thinking of buying a new one and saw the reviews and wanted everyone to know how great an experience I've had with it.
nothing is invincible
i sent one back as the top half lost all the white specks and started to stick, they sent me another one it was good until i opened up the top and when i went to move it it snapped the back off i tried to glue it but the heat just melted it and it didn't work i now just sit it flat as it won't stay closed uprite it worries me as it fell over and got worse so i leave it sitting flat .I do like it so i put up with it If they weren't so expensive i would buy another one that would be safer to store
one of the best appliances I have ever bought
I use the Flavorchef all the time. I get wonderful results with chops and steak. Sometimes I use a little oil, and sometimes I cook dry. Yes, it is certainly one of the best appliances I have ever bought. It also makes wonderful muffins with the use of the silicone muffin trays.
Perfect for holiday cooking
Took mine to the unit we stayed at. Brilliant, no pots and pans to clean after meals, cooked everything from bacon and eggs, toasted sangas to pizzas and pasta bake in it. Everyone had more than enough food (8 of us) Love it and have told my kids to get one for themselves. .. Now I see another Flavour Chef advertised, this makes sauces and such, why are they calling it the Flavour Chef when it isn't

I bought this and had problems with the timer as it stopped working time to time. The food started sticking on to the pan as the pans started getting stickier after about 4 months. I did not use any detergents and always used wet clothes to clean it. I don't think it is value for money.
This item is just "OK". Is advertised as cooking food from frozen but when I wrote asking about cooking a frozen chicken breast was advised to defrost it!! I bought it so as I could cook stuff straight from the freezer so it's been a bit of a washout for me. Company didn't even reply to my second letter of complaint.
Sounds second rate
Thanks for the feedback. Almost bought one today when i rang to get price. Glad i didnt now. Numbers wearing off, impossible to clean and food sticking to pan on FIRST use!!! Seriously? ?? And at $270 i would expect a little better. And i noticed danoz had no reply to the problems people posted.
Useful but not value for money
I have had my flavour chef just over 12mths whilst it's useful, time saving and a great concept the quality is poor, food is starting to stick especially on the lid part., the design is poor good and oil gets into parts of the lid hinges that are hard to clean, the time I save cooking I spend cleaning it. It is not worth the price tag.My daughter has already had hers replaced under warranty as it blew up
I have had my FlavorChef for around nine months? and have used it at least four times a week. There is so many things which can be cooked in it. There is no way I could manage without it. I find it really easy to clean if you follow the instructions. I do agree with a couple of the other reviews and that is the numbers wore off the timing and temperature knobs.
This unit while new a good thing. But!!! After two months of use the shine was gone.
Constant use of the Flavorchef exposed a lot of problems that were not good
1 The numbers printed on the unit to show temp and top element control wore off after the first week making temperature setting hard.
2 The so called non stick only lasted about another two weeks, don't get me wrong, it was well used by the whole family and no harsh cleaning products were ever used.
3 Cleaning this product was also no an easy task. The fat and food would go in the little openings and hinge arrangement making cleaning to a safe standard near impossi...
