  • Incredible!
    So good, very tasty and easy to make. I cut baby carrots in half and they all were done at the same time. I'll make this one of my standard go-to recipes. - 12/25/17

  • Very Good
    Very tasty! My friend who doesn't eat carrots ate all these! The carrots never cook at the same rate as the sweet potatoes, so I left it in about 7 minutes more and it was great. - 11/13/11
