i doubt it will cook your food any different from what ever cooker you have now, and, 2k is a serious amount of bike money (cant say i have any experience with this but i mean you can steam food with pans that dont cost 2k, you can buy healthy food everywhere, the cooking times will still be the same, the end result will be the same…)
get the bike! (purely based on my own bias opinions / love for bikes!)
maybe post this on an oven enthusiast site as well? just to gauge fair opinions?
Depends on who has the money really… Personally I wouldn’t waste 2K on a gimmicky oven, but if it is her 2K then well, oven it is. If it is shared funds, then compromise. I’ve also no idea how steaming food in an oven is healthier than just plain cooking it either… You can get a decent electric oven for far less, and if you buy through Boots kitchens you also get loads of advantage points too.
They’re pretty good in all honesty and they will give better results with some foods but remember…
It’s an additional product to you would have along with a regular oven. It won’t replace what you already have because some foods can not be steam cooked.
Make a compromise, agree to the oven on the basis you will be able to judge the results and if it (and her cooking) doesn’t knock your culinary socks off - the oven goes and you get the Ducati on the same terms - if the Ducati (and your riding abilities) doesn’t knock her pillion socks off, the Ducati goes and nobody ever mentions an expensive steam oven or 996 ever again…
Hmmm. Thanks for the advice guys. Some food for thought.
But obviously not steam ovened food for thought
It’s mine of course - well, the definition of ‘mine’ is becoming ‘ours’ quickly. I don’t know where to draw the line…
it is mine, I mean, I worked all those 9.00am - midnight hours, and then feel like poop when I come home…and that’s err, where it would be great to have a steam oven timer which switches itself on and prepares food and then switches itself off before we get home, that way we don’t have to cook.
I figured that we eat more than I use a Ducati 996. Obviously it’s cheaper to insure a steam oven, although I haven’t tried Bennetts or MCN Insurance for that yet.
Where do you draw the line for shared funds with a partner? I earn way more than her, and I’d feel bad if I just thought about me only. This is tricky. Maybe she’s testing me to see how self-centred I am. If she is, then I’m going for the 996
Good idea. But I’m sure she’s already doing that
Well it’s a matter of time … we have to rip out the kitchen anyhow. With all the cruddy builders I’ve been getting in, this won’t happen for ages, but we need a new oven in any case.
