Very practical for everyday use. Perfect capacity for most recipes. Lighter weight than any i have used previously therefore easier to manoeuvre. Only negative is that it must not be submerged in water making cleaning a little bit awkward but perfectly manageable.
This is a very useful appliance to have as an extra cooking facility – i only gave it 4 star rating because it was very difficult to fit the plug as one of the pins was out of line on the unit, i don’t know how long it will last, other than that it’s brilliant for the price paid. . I would definitely purchase another one if this one failed.
I’ve had several different makes of this kind of pan, so can compare. I love the large size but light weight of this. I use it mainly to brown for the slow cooker. It makes that chore very easy. Equally, it will make nice meals on its own. The non stick is very scratched already despite care being taken. And the thermostat is not efficient. On number 2 nothing simmers, but on three it boils.
First one arrived with chipped glass lid, so returned for replacement; faulty one was picked on 24 august 2015 and replaced with new one by same courier. On opening replacement all was in order except two of the four rubber feet were missing. No problem, i have loads of different sizes of rubber feet, so just fitted the two missing one’s myself. Despite this minor fault, i give vonshef five stars. Used it last night to cook scampi & a quality brand of frozen chips plus a salad. The chips and scampi were cooked just to our taste. Great service also from the supplier domu uk who were more than helpful when i phoned them. I urge anyone interested in cooking any food without adding any fat whatsoever to purchase this quality product. It will be used at home and in our static caravan holiday home. Indeed i may purchase another and leave it at our caravan to save us moving it from home to caravan.

Bought to use as a bbq in winter with the motor home, particularly to cook breakfasts. Have used twice and totally satisfied. Cooks well, very light, and is totally non stick. Will probably buy another for home.
I got this table top pan as i have really bad arthritis in both my knees. And i sit at my kitchen table to do all of my food preparation. But then have to use the stool to sit in front of cooker if using hot plates, blocking off my narrow kitchen for others. Now i can do everything at the table, out of people’s way. And at a much better height for me. So far i have made sausages in onion gravy with a mixture of root veg. Pan rinsed out really easy after each meal. If you are thinking about getting one.
Excellent cooker i bought it to use when we go away with the caravan. . We use it to cook breakfast, curry, stew. I used it at home first to try it out and loved it and it’s so easy to wipe clean.
This is a cheap product and shows by the quality of the finish, but it works very well so at the price i paid which was on offer for half price was well worth it, but don’t expect the non stick surface to last too long.
I haven’t got the hang of simmering with this, as its either on full pelt or not at all. Really handy for camping though.
I have had to save up for a new cooker, not cheap these days. I saw this and thought well that will help while i can afford a cooker. Along with my halogen cooker and my steamer i have managed pretty well all thanks to this item. I could not only fry my bacon again i could also cook casseroles and the like. And something i will continue to use even though i now have a cooker.
After i had ordered it i regretted it & thought i should have ordered a plain old every day frying pan. Made delicious spanish omelette cooked evenly & quickly. It also arrived less than 24 hrs after ordering brilliant service.
Perfect for what i wanted it for. Great heat and even cooking. Because the machine heats up very quickly you have to keep adjusting the temperature, if you don’t do this it will burn your food. You can make dropped scones & pancakes etc too. ,only minus, it wobbles so you have to put a mat under a leg. Otherwise it is a great buy. I would recommend it for everyone. Especially if you are on your own and don’t want the bother of cooking on your main cooker.
We love love love our multi cooker and use it daily. Use it for all kinds of cooking and wouldn’t hesitate recommending the purchase of one.
Had an electric skillet years ago. Only cooked a breakfast till now. Arrived really quickly and well packaged.
Very nice looking sturdy product, well packed and received soon after ordering. The temperature switch is small and the numbers on it difficult to read; the switch is supposed to be turned clockwise, but it goes either way. You have to start cooking by heating the cooker for 8-10 minutes first, at 3, before you put any food in it. The lowest temperature is listed as 150c. It is claimed to boil/simmer, but at the lowest temperature a huge amount of steam vented and the liquid also boiled over so i had to keep switching the thing on and off; i presume the same goes for stewing, which i haven’t tried yet. Therefore how will it slow cook, which is also claimed for this product?. No recipes or recipe book comes with it, so you are left in the dark to try what works. I cannot find any vonshef recipes online and i think one needs starter recipes for each style of cooking to start off with so that you don’t have to mess around cooking by trial and error. Multi-cooker recipes for other makes of multi-cookers may be chancey.
Good sturdy pan, lots of room, good price. Take a little time “playing” with the controls regarding the amount of heat given out for each “number”, especially if you are new to these. I am more than pleased with the purchase, which turned up early and was well packaged.
I have only utilised this products once , but was astounded. I stuck in a hen leg when planning a several mediterranean veges then by means of the whole lot in with a bit of olive oil. In about fifteen minutes the entire large amount was prepared to provide and totally tasty. If it continues to conduct this very well i is not going to have to have to usemuch other cooking products besides for steaming my greens.
I just are not able to believe that how swiftly this was shipped and for the cash very well value it. Extremely easy to clean, just up conclude it in the sink with the aspect side uppermost and swill it all-around with scorching h2o and washing up liquid if necessary. Really don’t think the washing up liquid is seriously necessary as the non adhere is great. Every little thing that i want to cook from toasted cheese sandwiches to stews can be performed in this excellent piece of kitchen equipment. There is a glass lid so you can see how the cooking is progressing and it is quick to pick up the lid when scorching because of the top of the knob. So i am very well pleased with this purchase.
Happy with this item you just have to be watchful not to get it way too very hot at the commencing. It would seem to settle down soon after a several minutes. I have carried out all the common things in it with fantastic accomplishment.
We have had our kitchen area eliminated whilst an extension is created so this has taken about as our most important cooking machine. We have been utilizing it every day for about 8 weeks now. It is really multipurpose, from cooking steaks to pancakes, pizzas and fried eggs and potatoes. Excellent command about temperature. Location 5 will burn most factors pretty quick but great for sealing a rare steak.
Thank you for this excellent electric frying pan. I use it most times, quite simple to cleanse much too. I exhibit it to all of my pals. Thanks all over again for this excellent pan.
Could not fault the cooker, but it was greater than anticipated, and for that rationale on your own, i returned it. For a spouse and children of 4 or much more it would be excellent. But for 2 oap’s a smaller one would be much more practical. Good dialogue with the vendor about returning the merchandise with no inconvenience what so ever.
