It's not mine - it's my mother in law's. I asked her to drop it down here for the weekend whilst they're all up there (she drove D & M up you see - driving M long distances on your own is impossible; she doesn't sleep at all in the car and whinges if she's bored!). So - first time I've used one. I have to say, I was impressed by what it did to the tomatoes. Really cooked quickly and with such intense flavours. I'm also impressed by the fact that it cooked kidney beans in 20 minutes. I'm tempted to invest on this basis alone.
