This thing is great. I bought one for my bedroom because i am handicapped and it is a wonderful item! it is so easy to use and clean. you can do all 3 things at once. so i can make my coffee, heat my items for breakfast, keep more than one item cooking at once and it is all hot when you are finished and ready to drink/eat. Excellent investment. It looks good, too. Great for dorm or anywhere. takes very little space but really does a great job.
