In our weeks of testing we put the model to the test with various recipes, starting with the classics french fries (both to be fried in oil and baked), passing through breaded cutlets, baked goods and the like. Although the dimensions are compactwe were blown away by his ability to succeed cook every single element evenly, without having to stop cooking for example to mix the contents. The timer from 60 minutes it is more than adequate for most preparations, the same goes for the maximum temperature of 200 degrees (reached in a few seconds).
