  1. After the 15 initial minutes, doesn’t tell you how long to cook the rest of vegetables or whether with lid on or off. Supposed to guess????
    Please advise by return
    Thanks or it’s ruined.

    1. Hello David,

      It would depend on how soft you would like the other vegetables to be. Personally, I would go for 2 minutes without the lid as I like them to have a bit more crunch. Hope this helps and happy cooking! 😊
