Bought for my daughter who is learning to cook. She loves it! The programmable feature is the best part, since the cooker will switch to warm after cooking is complete. Looks nice, cleans easily. I don't recommend immersing the lid, since water will get underneath the handle. Just hand wash under running water and all should be good!
Love this slow cooker. It is my first and is simple to use and has all the functions I required in a slow cooker. The cover is glass and the crock pot is ceramic and easy to clean. The programmable function allows me to set and go and the settings allow for variations in timing requirements. The capacity is large enough for a pot of chili or fondue that I may want to bring to a group gathering.
Very good product. Only drawback is that it is oval and not round(some recipes call for round).Cooks food even cheaper cuts such as chicken thighs or legs so that it is tender and flavorful. Cookbook included in package which gives you some very good ideas if you have never slow cooked before. Very simple to use and directions are easy. Great time saver.
