I, also received a T.C.O. as a gift and thought the Recipe Booklet was somehow lost, or never included. I did get a manual and a xeroxed copy of same. There was also a laminated card enclosed with general cooking times that did not match the ones in the manual. After reading posts from other members, I believe a cook book has never been a part of the package. I did go to the KOOLATRON web site, and found only more devices for sale.
After experimenting for several weeks, though the literature led me to believe that the cooker was faster than a regular oven, that cooking times are very close to my aytag oven...and sometimes more. Last night, I made a 3 lb. turkey meatloaf in the T.C.O., that took 1 and 3/4 hrs. Half way through, I had to place foil over the top so it wouldn't burn. At the moment
, I'm trying to dehydrate some apple slices. We'll see how that goes.
