So. I think we have established that I don’t cook. Or not well anyway.
Basics I can manage, but I simply can’t imagine spending time cooking for fun. I do a mean scrambled eggs and can whip up some pancakes if required. Grill some chicken or even some chops – not a problem. Anything with more than about five ingredients though, forget about it.
Sometimes a mood strikes me and I try to step out of my comfort zone, but when I tried to make a loaf of bread from scratch, I almost cried with relief when it was actually edible.
Cooking dinner EVERY NIGHT is a chore. But funnily enough, Poss and husband seem to want to be fed, and I am sure in the rule book it says that we are supposed to eat something that doesn’t involve toast or pasta at least once a week.
So when the good people at Tefal asked me to review their Cook4Me, well, I have to say, I couldn’t have said yes any faster.
Like the name says, it cooks. For me.
It’s a bit like a cross between a microwave, a slow cooker, a rice cooker and a pressure cooker. Multi-talented bugger. There are recipes saved in the memory, which step you through step by step (perfect for me) or a manual mode, which would be handy for those who actually know how to cook. It even has a reheat feature, for when I am cheating and reheating last night’s takeaway.
We have been playing with it – nothing too adventurous. Porridge for the cold mornings, a creamy mac & cheese and tonight we did corned beef. It was tasty. It’s easy to use, easy to clean and did I mention, it cooks for me?
Now. I have gloated about my Cook4Me, but here’s the fun part – you get a chance to win one too! It will be like I am cooking for you… well kind of! As close as it’s going to get anyway!
To win, all you have to do is share with me your favourite non-recipe. You know, a two minute noodle/eggs on toast style. Something that takes less than 5 ingredients. Your go to lazy meal. Bonus points if I can use the Cook4Me to make it!
The finer details…

Disclaimer – in exchange for running this giveaway we were provided with a Tefal Cook4Me to review and keep. My lack of cooking ability and love of anything that helps with that, is my opinion only.
