Yvette, that is so disappointing.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Yvette that would have been so disappointing. Do you know why they were tough? Do you think it wasn't the correct temp?

Yvette, sorry the steak didn't turn out.
Try chicken, the breast I cooked in TMX was perfect.

I'm so glad to hear you can get your money back Yvette - I wondered about that when you posted about your disappointment.

Thanks Judy

I am not going to be bothered Mich I really wanted it for steaks so if it can't cook them well it will be a waste of money

Yvette, sorry to hear the steaks weren't a success.  It is disappointing when things don't turn out the way we hoped they would.  Glad you are able to get your money back.

Yvette, what type of steak was it? We've had really good results but timing can vary quite a bit dependingmonmthe thickness of your steak.
