I've got one of those too, bought at Tesco, can't get the damn thing to work. Figures, since it was only three dollars.
I broke down and bought the one at William-Sonoma. It seems pretty well made but cost a damn sight more than $3 Btw, works perfectly and has not been confiscated yet! LOL@ all the play my quip garnered. Gotta watch those toss away lines.
Ox cheeks, stole recipe from great british menu but used a bit less wine, three litres seemed a bit excessive and did it in the owen on lower heat for 12 hrs , http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/de...lletoxch_88833 + fried pig cheek confit, smoked sweet potato puree, dijon veggies and roasted onion on the side (no vis) poor mans sous vide a bit sacrilegious to fry pig cheek confit this hard but had some already made left over in the freezer, would have used smoked pork otherwise
