I haven't checked recently. I have some in the pantry. I used to use it to put between the home made bread slices. Don't do it anymore.

I loved it to put over salads when transporting as it stuck to everything and created a great seal. My local Cole hasn't had it for a long time.

I suggest to my guests at demos that a jam funnel is a useful addition as is the use of cling wrap over the bowl when milling sugar, spices and other dry goods that tend to 'escape'.

Thank you for all these great tips, from a newbie!

Is there any quick wisdom for when to put the MC on facing up, down, or off altogether?  Lots of recipes don't seem to specify.  If the recipe doesn't state it, what is the default?

I recently attending a cooking class of a well know Australian Italian chef Laura and he said he always leaves the MC off - of course he uses the steaming basket over the hole when cooking a bowlful of tomato pasta sauce as it will splatter.  I have taken to doing the same as I figure a high profile cook like Nico knows what he's talking about.

The MC goes in with the open side facing upwards generally but I don't think it really matters.  In recipes it generally says when to leave the MC off so you can presume it's on if nothing is said.

The only times I worry about the correct way up (or down) of the MC is if I have the butterfly in and when I am making mayonnaise - in both of these instances, the open mouth is facing down, into the jug.

I almost always have the MC off, but when i do use it, I have it like a "U" as it is slightly easier to clean :) like Judy I use the basket to stop splattering :)

Thanks for the replies everyone. That makes good sense! I love having the MC off because I like to look at the magic that is going on inside!!

Ive had my machine for 6 years and I still love watching in the top. I think it gives you a good idea for times too Laura.
