  1. disappointed, all the recipes seem to be pressure cooker not the 17 in 1 cleverchef

    • Dear Carole

      you can choose some other recipe for Clever chef cooker, but some foods such as beans must be treated in a pressure pot.

      We will keep in mind your remark and publish some recipes for the Clever Chief only.

      Thank you
