    Yeah figured that after I posted.

    it just appeared randomly in my discussions list.

    Everything (especially good deals) seems thin on the ground compared to when I joined, perhaps Pepper group are desperate for dialogue.

    is the question as simple as it sounds? I thought there was a deeper meaning to it.. Couldnt work out why there would be a problem.. but then saying that i'm male and i've only visited the kitchen once in the last few years.. so I didnt feel qualified to comment.

    Someone told me you shouldnt put any vibrating appliancies next to a fridge due to the gas in the back of them, thought it was a load of rubbish to be honest but thought i'd double check anyway

    our condenser dryer runs for maybe 5 hrs a day... it makes the whole room hot and sticky..

    if you have a choice have a separate ultility room for the washing machine and dryer, out of the way from the main kitchen.

    I don't know about it being safe, but i do know that you should'nt put hot appliances ie, cookers directly next to fridges, there should be a space between at least, as your frdge has to work harder to keep cool making them less energy efficient.
    i would deffinatley make sure there's a gap between your dryer and fridge.

    Cos a fridge and dryer both work on stop start cycles could be power surge issues if plugged into same double plug outlet. Also energy efficiency of fridge would be compromised by heat from dryer. I have unneeded space in the bathroom in a large cupboard and have washing machine there. If you put electrical appliances in bathroom though need to make sure all electrics are safely away from water.

    Smoking hot. Instant pots are a game changer. Can't sing their praise enough. It's a fire and forgot solution to the kitchen.

    Roast chicken done in 30-40 mins.
    Home made curry that rivals the take away.
    Ribs where the meat peals off the bone.
    Meat joints that fall apart and are so succulent.
    Quick and tasty chicken breast done in 10 mins from frozen.
    Anything that needs to simmer like risotto. Put in the instant pot and forgot about it. No constant stirring. Won't be quicker but doesn't require to be watched.

    When using it under pressure it's like a slow cooker for unprepared people as the times are cinched right down. Even frozen meat can be put in. There is debate over that on the internet. I've not done it so do your own research.

    All the benefits of slow cooking if that's how you roll.

    Only issue is the recipes are American so lots of salt(can be reduced) and measurements in cups. Meats not browned and pre Browning is a hassle. Also things come out with more liquid as when veg breaks down the liquid is released but not evaporated. So you will end up using a lot of corn starch.

    I use this roughly 6 days a week every week.
