Got this cooker about a week ago, and have used it at least 5 times already, every time i have used it i am flabergasted by the results. It cooks to perfection, i found recipes online for it and have used a few of them. Pork chops for 6 hours on low heat come out so easy to pull apart. Beef stew is so tender you would think it was a porterhouse steak. The only negitive is the fact that there is no timer on it. But a small issue for such a good cooker. I would highly recomend this to friends and family.
