always cook veg. fresh or frozen in it. doesn't take much liquid for veg. keep the color and texture intact.
i melt anything that the recipe calls for. butter, choco, etc.
hardly ever defrost anything with it.
do the finish cooking thing on meats that are not done.
i don;t bake in it either. still playing with the convection oven part. make large cass. in it all the time.
doesn't brown meats well enough, so only do meatloaf in it.
saute onions, celery etc.make rice but not pasta.
cook bacon or sausage but no eggs. they explode
i don't know what i would do without it,. it is like my right hand man.lol
