Roeland that may well be true, but given what I have seen so far, the game is rigged to make sure you get 3 chillies early so you have to keep spending gems to put it back and keep cooking.
Trouble is, the equipment is not worth spending 5 gems to obtain, so forget me wasting 50. Not even once.
Bad design, bad policy, short-sighted ignorant and foolish. Color me disgruntled.
