Which model did you win?  I love your kitchen, looks like a professional one and you have so much equipment. I thought I had a lot.............

Hi Warren

Yes I've had the machine since just before Christmas and I love it.  I find that I am using it all the time and doing things that previously I would think I hadn't got time to do.  I am yet to do a whole meal in the machine, just extras like soup and dessert. Oh actually I did steam some sea bass with ginger garlic, soy, a touch of sesame oil and a little dry sherry with noodles and pak choi, which was delicious.  Any ideas you have got please pass on as I can see you are some cook.

Wow!  That sounds delicious.  I've yet to use my strainer basket, and only tried the varoma once with less than stellar results with broccoli.  I saw a recipe for a red beet soup with horseradish dumplings in one of the books.  I'm planning on trying that this weekend :)  (the dumplings are cooked in the varoma). 

I'm not sure I'll rely on the TM for "one pot" meals....  First off, I eat like a horse, and not sure I can steam enough protein at once in it ;)  But it has clearly proven it is one heck of an addition.  Probably more risotto in our future too.

Do you have a partly metal or fully plastic Varoma?  The newer one is all plastic and has marginally larger carrying capacity.

I have put in a tray fashioned from my previous Varoma tray to get more in - should post how I did that as it means I can prepare 10 dariole moulds in the machine.

Good luck with the dumplings.

:(  Never got to the dumplings.  That was my Saturday project and family called and suggested we all go out to dinner.  Maybe one day this week.  I did get to the Swedish Meatballs I wanted to try out.  They were great.

My varoma is all plastic
