Not yet. I only took it out of the box on Sunday, cleaned it out, and made pasta using a recipe from a cookbook. Which has now all been consumed.
Frozen ground beef, spaghetti sauce, dry rigatoni, water in lieu of beef stock (note to self), a scoop of shredded Parm, unmeasured quantities of salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic, and onion powder, and then two scoops of cottage cheese in lieu of Ricotta, for that lasagna-like effect.
Not bad. A little greasy because using I couldn't determine a way to drain the grease from the slab of ground beef before or after cooking. But in less than an hour cook time (to pressurize, cook, and then de-pressurize), I had dinner with minimal effort. Well worth it for someone who is just learning to cook and doesn't (i.e. can't) want to stand for long periods of time.
I suggest a full frontal assault with automated laser monkeys, scalpel mines, and acid.
