Vegetables mostly for me, though I have done fish and chicken too. The veggies taste so much better steamed... I'm sure theres loads more I haven't got round to trying too! :-D

nope this is a slow cooker it cooks slow and thats why they are brilliant for when you get home from work as the steam in the slow cooker stops the food drying out i do own a pressure cooker as well though but hardly use it now

Lol, not off the top of my head, TBH I use it more for convenience than anything, it really is handy! ;-)

I think when you buy one, it will come with a recipe book.... most kitchen gadgets do.. ( trust me, my kitchen is full of them! :oops:)

Good for vegetables, they keep much more of the flavour rather than boiling them, where the flavour (and vitamins) go into the water.

Mine is great, I used it once to steam to mange tout, then it has sat in the kitchen cupboard collecting dust, another useless kitchen gadget to add to the collection.
