Recipe ratings (6 hours)

Information in this post is correct as of Saturday 19th July 2014.

It's back to the recipe ratings trail this weekend with the 6 hour dishes under the spotlight.

Firstly some general information. There are 34 recipes of 6 hour length in total. However of these 13 are goal recipes and six are either removed or on removed appliances. That leaves only 15 dishes which are standard recipes available to all.

RIverboat goals content report

Last week saw the release a new goal set. The theme was a riverboat trip, and there were some goodies to unlock by completing the goals. So let's take a look at all the prizes...

As always, two of the focal points of the goals were the pair of new appliances. The Riverboat Oven and Fish Stand are integral to the goals, and so justify some discussion. The Riverboat Oven was the first to be unlocked - and here comes the first TeamLava error in this update - it didn't need parts for construction. This is unusual, although not unheard of. But shortly after the goals went live the Riverboat Oven did require construction. So a drop of the ball by the game's developers there.

Meanwhile the Fish Stand is a 2x1 sized appliance. It is nice to get a bit of variety in the appearance of the cookers in the game, but the larger appliances are a real problem to me as I can't really fit them into my restricted kitchen section. The end result is that I've not got much space for anything other than the Fish Stands, and so with fewer appliances bubbling away my counters empty quickly.
