    Automatic stirring

    I threw a meal on a couple of hours ago and it's about ready to eat. What makes it easy is the automatic stirring pot I cooked it in.

    The price on there is nonsense and it's meant to come with a tower shredder but you get the idea.

    It counts down the time and beeps and turns off, it stops anything from sticking, you can fling bits in easily at the right time. Today's is a chicken casserole sort of affair. Parsnips, celery, carrots, onion, thyme, a pint of passata and a small glass of Pinot Grigio a half hour before serving - one for the pot and one for me, in the style of Graham Kerr. The liberal application of wine, that is, not the recipe.

    Re: Automatic stirring

    A half century of practice and experiment went into that meal. Though admittedly what I was cooking fifty years ago was very different to what I did today. Today's lacked my original notion of essential ingredients - a stirred-in egg, Worcestershire sauce and a spoonful of salad cream, for example.

    When I see that price tag, I can't help but think of all the meals the wife and I could eat at the local diner for that.

    I bought it new for under £100 from John Lewis, I've no idea why Philips have it listed so high.

    I was 22, I'd just bought my own place on a 95% mortgage and I kept a one-week curry on the hob which I heated up every evening after work, and every Sunday I'd clean out the pot and make another. It had none of those ingredients though. They went in the snack.

    The snack was two slices of toast. On that went sludge. Making sludge - I still do it on occasion - involves flash-frying a tin of beans in a pre-heated pre-buttered frying pan, shaking Worcestershire sauce over it until it goes brown, stirring in a half spoon of paprika and a sprinkle of mixed herbs and one large egg until it goes stringy, and serving with an unhealthily large spoonful of salad cream drizzled on. In terms of texture, taste and sheer wow factor I've found nothing that comes close, and I can have it on the table it within five minutes of lighting the gas.

    I have just regurgitated a nasty bitter taste, I think it was the spoonful of salad cream that did it.

    That's got to be the wrong kind of wow factor!
