I don't think I would cook at least 80% of the dishes in this book. I would certainly not make lasagna in it. I found better recipes online for the pot roast I wanted to make too. I wasn't expecting the book to have everything, just more of the kind of dishes that you would normally make in a slow cooker.
The delivery and packaging for this product were great but I would not call this a luxury set. It's just average, but the theme was right for my daughter's room makeover. It washes well and they have lots of great accessories to offer so it's great for a kid's room.
If I wasn't hoping to save money for an adaptor for the new computer I bought for my daughter, I would have realized that converting analog to digital signals with a little piece of plastic would work. Caveat emptor and use your head! :-)
