Be careful unless you like trendy food and following recipes
I wanted something to cook mince and onion meals without burning them. Wrong.
Ibought mine second hand off eBay for and regret it. I would not buy one again without the back up of a consultant. It is so hard to learn to use without a demonstration and back up. Thanks to this group I have learned to use it. I have only successfully made jam, lemon butter and last week, cheesecake. I have had no success browning mince and onions, which is why I bought it really. It chops well but is an expensive grater.
The app is useless. This group is your best support if you buy a second hand one, but I wouldn’t again unless it was half new price.

5⭐️ If not for the squeal.
Cooks fantastically, a larger pot would be fabulous. Cleaning is not clean cut, but not enough to stop me using it.
Upon Stirring however, there emits a god awful squealing. I find only when not stirring is there peace.
A really good addition would be a fluid catcher for when you open the lid with cooking, I get a substantial puddle around the cord after opening lid when cooking’s finished.
Good but lack of recipes
Im extremely happy with my machine although I still have the old lid which does trap food that can't be removed...
Love the ease of use but due to lack of recipes, I'm struggling with what I can cook in it. Yes i can use the online recipes but most are american and contain ingredients and measurements that just don't work for me. I love casseroles, stews and old fashioned curries. Overall its definitely pretty fantastic :)
Questions & Answers
Hi. I'm considering buying the cook processor- I really want to be able to cook stews and curries with very tender meat in the quickest possible time. Does anybody have experience doing this with the cook processor using stewing program? How long does it take to get the meat very tender?
I cook my curries and stews on the 60min cycle and have had every one turn out lovely and tender. The red meats and pork turn out the best (chicken needs to be on a shorter cycle).
Ive had mine for two wks now and love it.
I find if you treat it like a pot on the stove it will do great stews and curries. So fry onion and meat like you would on a stove then had liquids and stew.
Depending on size can take 30-45mins i found.
Plus it has a keep warm mode which is awesome.
