I love my slow cooker, its sleek stainless steel exterior looks great. I use it several times a week. It is great for the summer - cook a whole meal without heating the entire kitchen. I am sitting here right now, salivating, smelling a delicious beef roast with potatoes and carrots. I set it up this morning and it is just about ready to eat. I love to set it up and let it do its own thing. Easily removable ceramic crock allows for easy cleanup. Just the right size for roast or a big pot of beans. Its great in the winter, too, walking in the door and smelling a pot a chili, ready to go. Not too big and not too small, its just the right size to sit on my kitchen counter. I don't know what I would do without it...yes, I do, I would go out and buy one!
