    I don’t like U-tube instructions. Simple printed instructions that show time and temp are enough.

    Just wanted crispy bacon, I don’t have a bacon function took twice as long as cooking normal not a happy bunny

    Very hard to follow all the U Tube cooking and recipe videos.
    Jump all over with cook time and temperature settings. Never can tell what the final right setting. Very hard to follow

    I’m sorry, but you have the worst directions I have ever seen. I just wanted to cook plain bacon. I burned the first batch and undercooked the next. The directions to work the machine is horrible. I have cooked hamburgers and steak but did not come out great!
