saute vs reverse functions
« on: December 10, 2009, 04:42:48 am »
Forgive my ignorance (only got my thermomix a couple of days ago) but when the recipe calls for 'saute at 100 degrees' do i press the 100 degrees button, then turn the dial to  ^^ ?  I am getting confused between  ^^ and  :-: Thanks!

Saute usually push the timer button (- / +) to set the amount of time, then the 100oC button and then turn the knob to  ^^ or 1 or sometimes 2.

The recipes usually say on here.  If converting then check the cookbook for similar recipes for a guide.

 :-: is reverse - good for keeping pieces of meat/veg/fruit together and not mashing them up.

Time - Temperature and Speed are all needed to cook - we often (at least some) forget to set the time and it doesn't work then :(

.........and we go into a state of panic for a moment or two.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

And sometimes forget to set the temperature and wonder why it hasn't cooked after 15 minutes or so  :-))
