Feasters Big Eat Pepperoni Deluxe Cheeseburger

Published on November 3rd, 2018

Like a cavalier, I rushed this and microwaved the whole thing, omitting the optional instruction of ‘toasting the bun’. But it still came out great. Maybe it was because I was hungry, or maybe it just really works. The burger is satisfyingly thick and meaty, the pepperoni (oddly grouped together in a clump) adds a… [Read More]

Chef Select Sausage & Mash

Published on July 17th, 2013

Nice, creamy mashed potato, generously sized sausages, and a tasty, subtle onion gravy. The sausages aren’t gritty at all, or bready, or overly soft. They have a nice firmness and meatiness, and a pleasant Lincolnshere sausage flavour. Only £1.69! Very good value.

Iceland Lamb Balti with Pilau Rice

Published on March 16th, 2013

A gorgeous, rich taste of lamb permeates throughout the whole sauce. This is a little on the spicy side for a balti. Although the cooking process is a little bit of a faff, the rice does end up wonderfully fluffy and light. The lamb is delicious and tender and there is plenty of it. The… [Read More]

Chef Select Chicken Tikka Masala

Published on March 1st, 2013

Nice and creamy sauce but a little lacking in spice. It’s also slightly on the watery side. However, the sight of fresh almonds in the sauce was very welcome, as was the bay leaf in the rice. This meal uses real ingredients, as opposed to the genetically modified, artificial food of the anti-Christ that we… [Read More]

Sainsbury’s Vegetable Curry

Published on October 10th, 2012

Very good first impressions. Gorgeous smell, looks amazing. Fairly creamy, but nothing like a korma. This is just like the sauce you get with a biryani. Contains sweet potato, which I’m not a fan of, but this is tasty nonetheless. This is a mild curry which has a slightly warm feeling as it goes down… [Read More]

Stagg Pecos Pasta

Published on May 17th, 2012

When you open this tin, you’d be forgiven for being daunted by the task of eating its contents. It’s set like jelly and looks vile, and as you spoon it into a dish ready for microwaving, cutting through some overcooked penne pasta, you’ll think you’ve made a big mistake. But don’t despair! You have in… [Read More]

Sainsbury’s Liver and Bacon with Mash

Published on March 12th, 2012

UPDATE: eight years on, as of April 2020, this is still delicious and worthy of five stars. The packaging has had a tweak, but not much else has changed – including the RRP, which is only £2. It’s a very rare thing to sit down to a microwave meal, close your eyes, and imagine you’re eating… [Read More]
