The intuitive menu contains four options.

Of course, the cooking process using preset programs is the simplest and requires only the corresponding ingredients.

Testing

Cooking the chocolate cake has demonstrated several features. First, the model prepares this dish with an open lid that causes psychological tension for some users. Secondly, the preset time was not enough. But increasing the cooking time by 7 minutes has solved this problem. On the other hand, the optimal duration of cooking is individual and depends on personal taste.

The recipe for making frozen mushrooms with fresh cheese requires 10 minutes for warming up and 4 minutes for cooking. Unfortunately, the finished dish turned out to be too insipid. But, most automatic cooking programs have this problem, because their developers usually take into account the average taste preferences and leave the possibility for individual experimentation.

Testing the cooking mode under high pressure has demonstrated an excellent result. For example, beef bourguignon was cooked after its pre-roasting with onions for 10 minutes. Cooked dish was soft and juicy, and sauce had balanced taste.

Ingredients option provides heat treatment of individual products and is carried out on the basis of commands from Moulinex. Unfortunately, most of the preset recipes are focused on diet food and offer mostly steamed. Unfortunately, most preset recipes offer diet food with the help of steaming. The cooking the steamed meat lasts only 17 minutes. But, in the opinion of the tasters, this was not enough. However, the additional 10 minutes has solved this problem.
