Turbo Cooker

What most women didn't like is the fry pan has a high large cover that takes a lot of room to leave out on a stove or store in a cabinet. The directions make it more complicated than it really is. I just use my own minutes & valve opening directions.
Add water as needed. Have a large closet in my enclosed porch for all my kitchen gadgets that I couldn't live without.

It was shown on TV so much everyone was talking about it. Then you bought one got two for the same price just shipping and handling. Mostly works by steam with a valve to open & close, with a rack in it for cooking vegetables at the same time. All the mothers were buying them for their single children to cook at home. At the pool they called me the Turbo Cooker Lady. Was fun to discuss recipes since I had four to feed every night with my Mom & Son living with us. Some nights had two cooking at the same time. Great for cooking leafy vegetables. Cakes come out so moist. As you can see still I still enjoy my pots.

I have never seen those around here.

I like that commercial they show over and over again for the cooker that isn't hot to the touch and can go in a bag and you get 2 for the price of one by the time the infomercial is done. I don't trust these buy on TV ads though when they say "pay separate shipping and handling fee's for the second "free one" but I do like it's concept.

Everything Tastes Good In The Turbo Cooker

I find my family eats every vegetable cut up that I can add to ground meat or poultry in a hearty healthy meal that you can cook and eat with a spoon. Can add ketchup or tomato sauce or make your own brown gravy to make it more appetizing. Serve over rice or macaroni or just potatoes the hot steam cooks it tender to chew. So far no complaints even with the leftovers the next day.

Still using my Turbo Cooker Pan 2018



Still enjoying my turbo cooker for dinners each week especially when using ground beef with veggies. It makes it easy to combine different veggies in one pot with out making mush out of the veggies.

I really need to use mine more often, I usually just fall back into the "regular" pans for cooking. I have a very large steamer I use often, but the turbo cooker WOULD make it less pans!

I still have mine. Because it is unwieldy to store, I rarely use it. Perhaps I should haul it out and use it again. Mine was a gift.
