Initial Reaction: Easy to use, Instructions good
- No washing up
- Fast cooking times
- Retains moisture from cooking – unless food drained properly, a bit soggy
- I found trying to cook vegetables until they were completely soft impossible as they just burnt (This isn't a problem with my electric steamer and therefore I wouldn’t want to use the bags for cooking vegetables for baby weaning)
- Smelly microwave after cooking fish
Value for money? Yes
Overall Reaction: Tasty vegetables and moist fish. After my first couple of attempts, by snipping off the corner of the bag after cooking, I could drain the excess moisture.
I found the speed of cooking vegetables extremely useful for a busy family. I often rely on frozen veg on nights with after school activities, but found the bags invaluable for healthy, fast meals. The fish was cooked to perfection and meant I didn’t feel like I was missing out when the rest of the family had fish and chips from the shop, despite my diet!
The standard bags were a little on the small side for a family but would be fine for a single portion.
