Much more flexibility than a regular slow cooker
I am amazed at the many cooking options on this Cook Central. It could easily serve as a slow cooker or a stove top with all of the choices that are available. The temperature settings appear to accurate.

Great features, easy to use
Love the lightweight removable pot. Easy to clean. Though I have only used the slow cooker mode do far, I like that there are multiple other functions available. I also like the feature that automatically switches to keep warm mode after cooking time has expired.

Repeat buyer
I have this slow cooker in the larger size. Loved it so much that when I needed something smaller I opted for the same model in 4 quart. Rated it 4 stars because when I received it, the cook pot coating was a little bubbled. But Cuisinart replaced it no problem. So 4.5 stars!

Ease of use.
Super easy to set up. We had fresh green beans, new potatoes and smoked sausage for our family of 5 and it was the perfect size for the meal. Easy clean-up too! I look forward to trying other functions than the slow-cooker function but I would be pleased if that was all it did. Very pleased.

Best slow cooker ever
My favorite feature of this cooker is being able to brown in the pot then add the remaining ingredients. No need to brown on the stove first. My second favorite is being able to set the time and cooking level then it automatically goes into warm. No more over cooking as with the last four cookers I've owned. It may be a bit pricey but well worth it if you use your cooker as often as I use mine...weekly. I bought the four and six quart sizes.

Love it
Finally a slow cooker that cooks slow. The browning/saute is great for those recipes that require it less mess and more convenient.

Got to get one!!!
Love it!!! I use it almost everyday from breakfast oatmeal to Taco Tuesdays. Best Boeuf Bourgogne to Coq au Vin!!! Love this! Gave it to myself as a Birthday gift and couldn’t be happier! Easy clean up and lets me be Uber creative! Puts my old slow cooker to shame! Garage sale anyone?

Join the 21st Century
After several uses I am overall happy with this multicooker. I rplaced an old original 80's Crockpot with this 21st century pot. I wish it were a little deeper to cover more of a large item (like pot roast) with the liquid, but I really like the ability to use the built-in browning function to avoid needing a second pan. I made a pulled pork recipe in it which I had made many times before, but after 9 hours was not as tender as in my old cooker. I also used the browning function to cook down liquid to make a gravy after the item was done. One other good feature is that the liner and lid are dishwasher safe and clean easily.. I doubt I will ever use the steam feature but maybe for something like crab legs.

A versatile, easy to use, efficient cooker
I've used this multi-cooker for almost a month now and I've found it very easy to use, easy to clean, and cooks food efficiently in accordance with the recommended times in most recipes. We've been very pleased with the outcomes so far. I haven't even used all the options yet but appreciate its versatility. The 4 quart size is also ideal for just my wife and I.
