After seeing my neighbor using his Red Copper 5 Minute Chef with ease (he's male!) I decided to purchase for myself. What a good decision...love it. My youngest Grandson loves his omelets and reckons this is the "bee's knees"!
The only downside is the omelet bloody deflates, but still tastes delicious.
I purchased mine from "Big W", and have had absolutely no issues with it. So easy to use and clean if you read and follow the instructions.
I have read other reviews of the unit exploding, and have come to the conclusion that the lid is been locked whilst cooking. The instructions explicitly say "DO NOT LOCK LID DOWN WHILE COOKING"! Another thing, don't buy this item off eBay and don't buy "copycat" products. Make sure you buy the genuine article!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
