Tried our first recipe from this book tonight. We bought for our 8 year old daughter, but it's a great cookbook for those of us who are grown but not sure how to cook like a "chef."We made fish tacos with guacamole. (It has cabbage and pomegranate in it.. which is "weird" but somehow was super amazing.) Made it all from scratch and it was the best! Even our picky 4 year old ate them!This is something I would've never made on my own, and I'm so glad I tried it!Here's hoping all the recipes are just as great! Definitely recommend for all ages!!
Expensive, hard to find ingredients. Very involved recipes. I was hoping for some versions of things seen on tv that would be achievable at home however we have had the book for months and because of the extensive ingredients for each recipe we have yet to make anything. Sad because we were excited to get this. Wish I looked at it in store before purchasing.
Missed the mark. We like the recipes, but did not like that there was no instruction. It was more of a recap of the show and its dishes rather than an opportunity to teach the kids nuances of how to cook that specific dish and techniques. In this case, I believe they should have known their audience better. Kids love these shows and parents want to teach their kids how to cook and the passion for cooking.
This is a gorgeous looking cookbook but I should've listened to the other reviewers...my 8 year old daughter loves Masterchef but these recipes are WAY too difficult for her to make or even attempt on her own. These are really advanced!! And not "kid friendly" meals (a lot of seafood) But if you have a real, actual Masterchef in your house and/or you are willing to buy it and do them together then this is a great book.
Finally a kid's cookbook that doesn't dumb down the recipes! I actually cooked a few of the recipes myself; they are that good. My son loves to cook and try new foods, so this cookbook is perfect for his skill set. The recipes are challenging for young or new cooks, which is what we were looking for.
Really nice cookbook with beautiful photos from the seasons. I bought this for my daughter who loves the show, but wish they would have included more of the kid friendly recipes that are cooked on the show. A lot of these aren't remotely practical for a normal kid.
Many newer ovens and toaster ovens may have the convection feature but the owners may not know how to use it. Instead of radiant heat, convection ovens use a fan to circulate air and heat throughout the oven and around the food. This allows the food to cook faster, more evenly and at a lower temperature. This book is a great resource explaining convection cooking and which foods are best to cook this way and which should not. There are cooking charts with temperatures and cooking times for various items along with over 75 recipes.I received a free copy from the publisher.
I am so happy to write this review of The Complete Convection Oven Cookbook. The book itself is printed on high-quality paper and has a fair amount of full color photographs. The recipes are well-organized and the type font is easy to read. There are many recipes containing flour, which I do not use, so I ignored those. Same goes for sugar. Author Robin Donovan’s Cooking Charts are nearly perfect. It is obvious how much time was put into this quality oven of choice is the NuWave Pro Plus; I’ve been in love with the NuWave since buying my first one over eight years ago. This past year, I gave away my conventional stove, and renovated my kitchen with a new kitchen island, two NuWave oven units and three NuWave PICs. All the recipes I have tested from this cookbook were prepared in the NuWave (which combines Convection, Conduction and Infrared). The Complete Convection Oven Cookbook is the perfect companion for all NuWave Oven users out there, though I did have to lower the cooking times on a few very favorite thing was the Crispy Barbeque Roasted Chickpeas; the chickpeas are now my new all-time snack favorite. These are quick, easy and inexpensive. Once made, this snack doesn’t even need refrigeration. It’s also a great protein source and far more superior to chips and other starchy snacks. This was the first thing I tried from the book. (I will admit I DID use the scant amount of brown sugar called for.) As I do not eat sweets, I made none of the desserts.Other things I’ve tried and loved were:1) Whole Roasted Chicken with Rosemary and Lemon2) Crunchy Baked Dijon Chicken3) Oven-Roasted Steak with Peppercorn Sauce4) Roast Beef with Peppers5) Oven-Roasted Hoisin Pork Ribs6) Sea Bass with Roasted Red Pepper SauceThis is a beautiful cookbook. Because of the cooking time charts contained in chapter two, this is now my new “go-to” cookbook.~ Caroline McKeon, author of The Rockstar and The Fan
This is a great cookbook for those who are unfamiliar with convection cooking. The cookbook starts with explaining what convection cooking is and what type of convection ovens there are. Convection is the circulation of heat, used by a fan, in convection ovens. A conventional oven will leave more hot/cold spots than a convection oven due to the fan circulating the heat in the convection oven, cooking your food more evenly. Top 10 reason to love a convection oven are: preheat faster, foods cook faster, foods brown evenly, no need to sear the meat, crisp without drying out, retains more natural juices, flakiest pastries, higher rise on baked goods, crisp oven-fried food and eliminates the need to rotate the pan! Any type of ovenproof cookware can be used in a convection oven and the author even lays out their top kitchen tools as baking/pizza stone, broiler pan, roasting rack, wire cooling racks, baking/roasting pans, silicon oven mitts/potholders, oven liners and silicone baking mats. There is a list for cleaning and caring for convection oven as it IS different than a conventional oven. In chapter 2, you will find that you can cook ALMOST anything in your convection oven with the handy cooking chart on pages 16-19, which lays out cooking temperatures and times for everything from meat to vegetables to baked goods! The recipes are broken down into 8 different categories: breakfast/brunch, appetizers/snacks, vegetables, fish/seafood, poultry, beef/lamb/pork, breads and cakes/cookies/desserts, with each section having at least 8 recipes, most sections having more than that. My favorite recipes so far are the chocolate and peanut butter granola bars (appetizers & snacks), whole roasted cauliflower with parmesan and garlic (vegetables) and the oven-roasted steak with peppercorn sauce (beef, lamb & pork) but definitely can't wait to try more! Something I was unaware of and one of my favorite parts of cookbook is the last page containing the "Dirty Dozen" & "Clean Fifteen". The EWG (Environmental Working Group) and (FDA) Food & Drug Administration compiled a list of those foods with the worst/best pesticide loads and the "Dirty Dozen", containing high pesticide loads are apples, celery, cherries, grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, potatoes, spinach, strawberries, sweet bell peppers, tomatoes with hot peppers being contaminated with highly toxic organophosphate insecticides. The "Clean Fifteen", containing low loads of pesticides are asparagus, avocados, cabbage, cantaloupes (domestic), cauliflower, eggplants, grapefruits, honeydews, kiwis, magnoes, onions, papayas, pineapples, sweet corn, sweet peas (frozen). This is not only a good cookbook with great recipes, but if very informational on convection cooking!

I've had a convection oven for about six months and needed some new recipes. This cookbook has recipes for appetizers, snacks, sides, meats, desserts and more.

This is just what I needed. I received a convention oven for Xmas and wasn’t exactly sure what to do with it. After receiving this I’ve been able to make some great food easily.

This Pressure Cooking recipe cookbook is great. There are so many different recipes from fish to soups to desserts and so much more.

I definitely knew it was done. The baked apples were tender all the way through.

This has some great recipes I haven't even made all of them. I am so very happy. What an amazing cookbook.
It has a lot of good recipes. I got it because I want to cook more in the crockpot.
Love love this cookbook.i cook in a crockpot all the time and its nice to get some new recipes
I've made a couple of recipes using this cookbook. They turned out fantasic. This cookbook is very creative. It's not the same boring recipes you see over and over. So if you want something easy to follow, creative and delicious then I'd recommend getting this.
Pretty good recipe book with some creative recipes that I never woukd have thought of. No need to know how to cook. If you have a crockpot just buy the ingredients that are listed toss it all in and in a few short hours dinner is served.
I received this book and we instantly started to flip though and mark recipes that we want to make! It's well written and full color with easy to follow steps. The recipes are for foods that the average person would really want to make. I highly suggest this tool!
I bought a crockpot with the intention of making easy dinners but I draw blanks when it comes to recipes! Then I was gifted this book! It has so many delicious recipes and almost all of the recipes in this book are are so easy to prepare! I've looked up crockpot recipe books before but I always back down from buying them because I worry the recipes won't be easy or reasonable but I love this one! It is my new go to When I have a big day ahead and won't have too much time to worry about dinner. I've tweaked a few recipes to match my households taste but overall 5 stars for the base setup ! I love the beautiful photos of the finished dinner, they look so delicious ! I have actually made 4 dinners from the recipes in the book this past week alone because I have been excited to try new ideas. My family has been enjoying the different variety of dinners I have been making. It broke us free from our regular rut dinner schedule! Plus, a crock pot eliminates the use of 2or 3 pans since you just put all the ingredients in!
I really like this book. My most favorite things about this book are the larger size print first and the wonderful full color pictures second. The larger print in this book is such a positive point because I always set my recipe book/card on the counter and are forever running back and forth to read the tiny print, the large print means I can see it clearly from a distance. The book has lots of great recipes that I cannot wait to try, and even if I personally cannot use each and every one of them as they are written, they at least give full instructions and tips so that way I can modify each to my specific family e book is not tailored to any one specific style of cooking, so it is not a completely vegetarian or gluten free type of book. It is more of an all around collection of experience and knowledge, and I can appreciate that. I like an eclectic mix of foods, so why not have books to compliment that. There are about 30 recipes in this book.
This book is both beautiful and functional. I am always looking for cookbooks that have 1) doable recipes and 2) pictures of what it is supposed to look like. This book does both, and encapsulates everyday life with a touch of class, making the dishes formal if you should so wish. After having the book for only one week, I have tried a few of the recipes and found them to be outstanding. I get everything ready the night before, putting it all into a ziplock bag. In the morning I put it in the crockpot, set it to what it calls for, and off I go. In the evening it is wonderful to come home to a meal that is already cooked and waiting. So many cookbooks are complicated in their ingredients and preparation. Everybody with a busy lifestyle should have this cookbook by Katie Banks.

If you are looking for a simple recipe book to go with your instapot this will definitely do the trick. You have both simple and eccentric in this lineup. Easy to follow instructions too with only a few steps for most recipes. The two recipes I’ve tried have both been fabulous!!! The “Honey Mustard and Lemon Chicken,” (p36) was mouth watering good! 5 simple steps, and hand full of ingredients and 15 minutes later you family is pleased as punch! The second recipe is the oh so tender “Balsamic and Rosemary Roast Beef (p 52),” that’s on the table in 4 hours and you won’t regret the wait! It sautés in the same pot it stews in and falls apart in the pot. It’s simply delicious!!!Although there are a few recipes I don’t see myself trying here due to the eccentric type taste, there are many more I would.
I am very impressed with the ease of these recipes. These make cooking so much better. I have always loved my pressure cooker, but now I have a lot of great recipes that I wouldn't have thought about doing in PC. I tried one recipe so far and it was delicious. I can't wait for weather to cool down so I can make some of these tasty soups. So much to choose from I think I want to use my PC everyday now until I try every recipe. To the author thank you for putting your creations on paper for us to try.
I'm giving this cookbook five stars because it's a very nice cookbook and has some good recipes in it. I looked through it and I would love to make some of these recipes for my family but there's not one in there that the whole family would eat. I have very picky kids and not a single one would eat anything from this book. So I gave it to my daughter in law who loves it! Her family likes some of the things in there a lot. All in all it was a great book and the pictures are beautiful.
Delicious Instant Pot Recipes: A Full Colour Instant Pot Cookbook for your Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot, Instant Pot Recipes, Instant Pot cookbook, ... Electric Pressure Cooker) (Volume 1)Love my Pressure cooker... and this receipe book is filled with wonderful recipes that I look forward to using for family meals. It's filled with delicioussoup recipes, main meal dishes and yummy deserts. This is a book I will use over and over again.
Very user friendly cookbook, easy to read & follow along. Font is not too big, not too small. I recommend using BOTH your pressure cooker's manual and these recipe instructions for cook times as an accurate gauge since all appliances are different. Wide variety of cuisine here. Pleasantly surprised this book has well over 20 recipes for a thin paperback! Even though they're aren't too many pictures, I'd rather have more recipes/instructions team photos.
At last we had ou first of what will be many of the recipes from this book. We just had the Balsamic & Rosemary Roast Beef and it was great. The depth of flavor was amazing. I’ve been looking forward to this for days. I only wish I had the time to cook it sooner. We haven’t had Hungarian Beef Goulah in a very long tine so I’ll try that next. Hubby loves Key Lime Pie and I’m interested to see how he like the one in this book. Cheers to a great meal.
There's not many cons with this, I would maybe like to see some more pictures but other than that it's a great easy book. It's well written and I like that it's small and you don't have to lug a heavy book around. My wife loves making soups and she's already did 2 recipes, we have other cook books but we didn't have any for crock pots. I recommend for working or active people
I bought cook book for my wife as a Christmas gift and i will be buying her a instant pot soon. The book has many recipes in there to satisfied most people's taste buds. I found it very easy to read on how to prepare your meal in the instant pot. I wish I could use it now but I would have to wait a few more weeks. she will love this! bonus points me
There are a lot of full color pictures in this book. The recipes are easy to follow and most are made with simple ingredients. There are tips offered for each recipe to vary it or for substitutions if needed. There is no nutritional value added for the recipes. Over all it's a good cookbook that will help you get more out of your instant pot.
