    Yes so sorry I hadnt noticed that I missed a step! I added another 10 minutes cooking time. I did check my top layered veg to make sure they werent too 'mushy' so this would depend on how thick they are chopped. Hope it works well for you, its been a big hit around here x

  • Hi Macro,  we just wish to

    Hi Macro,  we just wish to highlight that Varoma temperature should not be used with speeds higher than 2. This is stated in the Instruction Manual.

  • Agree with the above

    Agree with the above comments. I realised the cooking time would have to increase as the chicken thighs sat on top of one another in the bottom tray. I decided to use the basket and had vegies for a soup as well as the ones in the top layer - which incidently, required more cooking also. I added another 10min cooking time and had the speed at 3. There was no speed mentioned in the recipe also. I believe that can make a difference to the cooking time. I'm still pretty new at using the TM for these sort of meals.

    Well, after the extra 10min Varoma,speed 3, the chicken was nearly done. The pumpkin, sweet potato and carrot were actually pretty good and I could have put them in the thermoserver. However, I added my broccholi, turned the chicken around again and cooked for another 10min - Varoma, speed 3. The vegetable cooking time also depends on how they are cut.

    Overall, it turned out well.
