So I wrote about our brand new (and fancy) LG NeoChef when we first got to review it in November. And since then it’s made our cooking and kitchen experience a lot quicker, easier and tastier.

Anyhoo, never one to waste still-working machinery, we got that thing cleaned up and have been using it ever since (up until last week when we passed it on to someone else). It was a pretty basic machine and we only ever used it to heat up things – never for proper cooking or anything nifty. Continue Reading…
