Posted by Hector Escobedo January 7th, 2024 I had not been using the Nordic Ware Tender cooker because I was using it wrong. You know what they say about men. “We don’t like reading or taking instructions”. So it took me awhile before I used it again because I needed to use it to cook small delicious meals. I had bought the Tender Cooker used. After I started using it again. I found out how sturdy it was. I needed some basic instuctions on how to use it. Plus I also needed some general recipes which I got in the instruction booklet. I am using the Tender Cooker as my main cooking appliance. As the old commercial used to say, “Set it and forget it”.
