I've been using a no-frills slow cooker and decided to upgrade to save time and clean-up. Love that you can do it all in one pot--brown the meat, saute veggies prior to setting for slow cooking. Set the timer and it automatically keeps food on warm until you're ready to eat. The 6-quart is perfect size for everyday cooking. Very nice looking, solid machine with non-stick cooking pot and glass lid. I'm sure I will use it constantly in the winter months.
I loved my old slowcooker, but it was so heavy to move around. And I hated the cleanup from searing meat before putting it in the cooker. This Cuisinart Multicooker is easy to move around. The searing really works and the cooker tells you when to put the meat in to brown it. The "pot" part is not ceramic, so it won't chip and crack. Plus, it is very easy to clean. My only regret is that I didn't get it any sooner. I love it!
