Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great high quality product. Check it out as a steamer with fresh shrimp, browning and sautéing meats for stews and of course as a slow cooker. It did very well in all 3 modes. It has been rated as the best slow cooker by one of the PBS cooking shows and it has earned that rating IMHO. Would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Cooker Much more efficient then other cookers. Love the automatic keep warm feature, so when im prepping breakfast the night before. it's always kept warm and ready to serve. Defiantly recommend this product and very easy to clean especially for a small woman like me love the fact that its not as heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of both worlds I am not sure whether the most attractive feature of this product (4qt cook central) is the fact that it is light weight or that I can brown the veggies and/or meat in the same cookware before proceeding to slow cooker mode. Now light weight does not mean flimsy. It does mean that I don't have to struggle to lift or carry a cooker with a heavy porcelain insert. It is easy to wash and I see no need to use a dishwasher to clean it, even though the manufacturer says it is permissible. I have used it primarily for stews, and it browned the meat perfectly. I can see soups and even a custard in its future. In sum, I love it and find the capacity perfect for a small family. And yes I too had difficulty finding the place to remove the electric prong cover as it blends in perfectly with the cord. So easy to remove, but you may need your glasses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this product This product is just exactly what I wanted! It replaced my old West Bend electric pan I had for 38 years. I wish I had purchased this pot much earlier I love it.
