Here's my issue:
If this gadget is supposed to save me precious time/energy in the kitchen, then why the hell do I have to get up at 7 or 8 am to brown the pot roast and chop the veggies in order to eat dinner at a normal time? Because 7 or 8 am on a weekend isn't normal to me.
While the pot roast is very good (and last time I did this I did wash/chop everything the night before), but come on, browning meat at 8 am on a Saturday isn't my idea of saving me time or energy.
A little help here please?
