Sistema 2.75 Quart Microwave Multicooker
I really didn't think microwave food could be so yummy! I didn't have high hopes for this set but used it one night when I was tired and hungry and thought *what the heck*. I made goulash. In the back of my mind, I was waiting for it to be a flop. To my surprise, it was AWESOME! Seriously! My usual recipe takes over 2 hours (lots of simmer time) and this made it in less than 30 minutes... and even cooked the pasta from dry to perfect! I am a believer! Oh...and... leftovers go into the fridge in the same pot... and reheat in the same pot... no more sink full of dishes!
I actually made BBQ chicken in ours....6 pieces in about 10 minutes....completely done...tender and juicy! !!!!
For a single person in my household this is a wonderful item and very useful. The first recipe I prepared was in the booklet, pasta with mushrooms and marinara sauce! I was amazed how easy and and quick this tasty meal came together. I am tweaking the rice cooking time up a bit from the called recipe. Love this product and easy to clean!
Works Great for Me.
I saw all the bad reviews on this and decided to try it anyway. I am glad I did. We live in Colorado and with the altitude, I have always had a problem with rice. It's either not done and mushy or too dry. I went by the directions except after 6 minutes I shut off the microwave and let it stand a minute so it wouldn't boil over and then stopped and started again until done. Have used it 3 times now and it turns out great.
This is a great cooker. My son even loves to use it. Makes things easy and quick to cook in microwave. Great investment.
Quick and Easy
This is a very handy microwave bowl with a lid. It holds lots of food, is not heavy, and I much prefer using it to putting an awkward microwave top over any old bowl.
I was cooking rice in this product and started smelling smoke! I looked to find the bottom of the product was melting!!! I had to throw it away!
I am not pleased with this item at all. I tried cooking rice in it and followed the directions given. My microwave is a 1000W. The rice was not quite tender and the Sistema pot made a huge mess in my microwave, with starchy rice water coming out the vents on top and dripping down onto the glass tray in my microwave. It's not worth paying the return shipping charges so I will probably just end up throwing it away. I would not recommend this to anyone and wish I could get my money back.
best purchase ever
one of the best things I've ever got from qvc. I've used it every day
After 17 years of marriage, trying to make good rice, I have finally found the perfect solution!! This is one of the best purchases I have made on QVC. I have a $100 rice cooker that doesn't do as good a job as this. Don't hesitate. You will find a million uses for it.
Great product this
This product works great for heating up left overs . Everything comes out moist . Another great thing you don't burn yourself taking it out of the microwave like you do using a bowl to heat thing up in. It's also a perfect size for 2.i have the set of 4 of the small bowls and love them but wanted something a little bigger for rice even boiling potatoes.
LOVE - almost
I still have not made perfect regular long grain rice - but I'm getting close. I made a box of Rice a Roni, following the directions on the package, and it burned the rice right into the bottom of the cooker. I have made Goya brand instant Mexican rice following the package directions and it turned out perfect. I ended up ordering a second one so I can have one at home and one in our travel trailer. Makes making rice very easy.
