I bought my Fagor electric cooker some time ago and was delighted to find that there are still accessories to purchase for it. My roommate scratched the bottom of the non-stick pan that came with my cooker so I knew I had to replace it. While I still need to use care with the stainless steel, I do not have to be as overly cautious as I did with the non-stick pot. Fagor should just outfit their cookers with the stainless steel pot but the non-stick is likely business tactical. I am happy with my replacement pot.
I got my first crock pot in 1972. I have had many different sizes and shapes and brands. This one is BY FAR the best! As other reviewers said, it cleans like a dream! The removable liner is light as a feather. Everyone knows how heavy the ceramic liners are when you try to wash them in the sink--and when they are soapy, they are very slippery. That is not a good combination! The non-stick liner is very light and nothing sticks to it--nothing. Also, I often use multiple settings on it during one cooking session. I will start out by using the browning setting, switch to the slow cooking temps, then switch to steam (which makes it boil) in order to thicken the juices and make a gravy. I would highly recommend it! (I have not used the timer function yet).
I was hoping for an easy to use, diverse, quality appliance... and this is definitely it. An added bonus, clean up is a snap! Non stick, dishwasher safe, pot and lid. I use this at least three times a week! The steamer is amazing for fish and veggies. So glad I bought this.
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.
