    We love it, but  due to allergies, I make my own combination of morrocan spices.  Also I put a variety of julienne  vegetables on the lower tray of the varoma, with the chicken on the top tray.  It means that I have to remove the rice/quinoa earlier, as the chicken will need around 5 more minutes cooking time.
