We have the saute version of this and use it all the time. I just brown off the onions and chuck in whatever veg is in the fridge and 20 minutes later its lunch time. Rinse it out straight after though
Would also add that there are hundreds of free Soup Maker recipes on the web. The instruction booklet only has about 4 or 5, which is a bit pathetic really, but there are loads out there on the net, plus The Works usually have a couple of books in their shops.
If it gets more veg down your belly then in my opinion it's worth every penny. Healthy living
Mine stopped working after about 4 years... Wonder whether I get get another one...
