I have used this so much since I bought it. It's the perfect size for one person. I've not used the recipe book, I've gotten more useful information online regarding time and temperature requirements for different foods. So far I've cooked various vegetables (eggplant is amazing), sausage rolls, nuggets, sausages, patties, spring rolls, tofu nuggets and probably other things as well. Even did an excellent job reheating a couple of small pizza slices (too small for many pizza slices though). Pretty much anything that would normally be fried or heated in the oven has been tried.
