    I just purchased the book and e-book. Wow, after downloading the e-book so much more has been explained, thank you Karen Shine. I have had my CC for more than a year and I think I will be using it a lot more now. I also have the C4M and 45in1 and have been cooking in them a bit lately, but now it is time to go back to the CC.

    Hi Karen,
    I love your book and use it but could you please tell me where I can find the conversion guide for Thermi to CC.
    I had a Thermi which I sold and bought the CC. Could not use the CC until I bought your book, but some of my Thermi recipes I would like to make in the CC.

  • Chris Davis

    Thanks Karen for your book it’s so easy to understand and follow, great little tips about the cc and cooking with the cc I would recommend this book to everyone that buys a cc it’s a must to have !

  • Sherrilyn Clark

    Book arrived today beautifully presented. I have had my CC for almost a year now and still find
    your book a great help in understanding this machine. Many thanks.

  • Kim Berry

    Although I’ve had my cc for 6 months and am reasonably confident with it , i still need to tweek a few things. The tips on the stopper, cooking rice, cooking a meal in the bowl & basket are invaluable. Love the recipes and that they show you how to make the most of your machine.

    I have finally found easy to understand instructions on how to work the machine. Bought the machine because my hands don’t work and it saves on chopping and stirring big time. I was still struggling converting recipes and even worse trying to use the Tefal million cook book that comes with the machine. I have zero talent in the kitchen, so I could not recognise when amounts, times etc were off. Karen’s book gave me a way to get to know my machine, to make basic things that people who can cook take for granted. Today, I have made the custard from the book – perfect, ketchup from the book, perfect, Carrot and ginger soup from the book. perfect. Cheese sauce from the Tefal million recipe book, came out a bit too runny and then I had to add a bit of corn flour to thicken it, but needed husband’s supervision to get it right.

    Thanks Karen for making the transition to CC such a smooth one.

    Your book has so much info that is clear and easy to follow. It really adds so much more to using the machine. I can’t wait to see future books 🙂

  • Frances Wiles

    Fantastic book I highly recommend it, beautiful recipes, has made using my CC a lot easier to use cannot wait until Karen brings out her next book 🙂

  • Krystyna Simmons

    Karen’s book is a must have for all Cuisine Companion owners. The book explains all the different functions of the Cuisine Companion through to recipes for easy family meals. This book has given me the confidence to adapt my own favourite recipes and experiment with new ones.
