Rated 1 out of 5 by Jeninlinden Does not live up to expectations
This item was awaited with interest as the demo made it look childs play. However I found it difficult to use.hard to estimate the cooking times, messy and it has left my microwave with a load of steam in the window of the door. Rice pudding simply spluttered out the top and made a mess of the microwave. not for me so it will be going back

Rated 2 out of 5 by sheffieldlass Slow pressure cooking!
I love the size and look of this this cooker but was dissatisfied with its performance. Did a stew first and it still was not tender after 30 minutes and also I find the lid awkward to use and very difficult to clean. Definitely better to look at and more convenient than my traditional pressure cooker but disappointingly it will be going back as I cannot cook well with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mucker01 Not as good as is made out
Was looking forward to receiving this. Tried veg soup, took about 40 mins! Pressure cooker hissing and whistling inside microwave.
Tried a stew, nearly an hour and could have done with another 20 mins on top of that to make the meat really tender. Certainly no where near the tenderness that it looked on the video!
Tried a chicken dish, put all the ingredients into the bowl and then lid would not click closed. Tried many times to get the lid clo.sed before giving up and resorting to the old pan method.
Item now boxed up for return and awaiting collection.
Very disappointed with this

Rated 5 out of 5 by GadgetMan A Great Item to Complement Your Microwave
Like many people my microwave is a very much under used piece of equipment and only used for heating milk and soup etc. Saw this on QVC and decided to give it a try. When opening the box I was pleased to see that it is very well made and not at all flimsy. I ordered the red one as I make a lot of tomato based sauces and was concerned that it may discolour or stain like some other microwave containers but this is not the case at all. Have made bolognese sauces and others soups and stews and so far have had no issues with discolouration. The included recipe booklet is very comprehensive with some great recipes. Have even made my own recipes including curries and have been very pleased with the results. Being able to cook everything in one pot saves time and cleaning up. Some reviewers have stated that theirs has leaked in the microwave just be sure that you don't overfill and you will be fine. All in all I am very pleased with this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by schoolmarm Glad I was brave!
Wasn't sure if I would like this as I remember the old type but wow! So glad I took the plunge.
Tried first with a chicken stew. 30 mins and everything cooked well including carrots and potatoes. Just cooked a lamb stew in 40 mins and the meat has fallen off the bones. It almost takes longer to prepare than cook!
I agree the lid is a bit fiddly and it sometimes takes a couple of goes but we'll worth the time.
