It's size that matters for me. And Overstock had the right size for me. The quality is excellent. The delivery was fast and the cooker was well packed. The price was a steal. I love to make large amounts of soup and freeze portions. Tthis is now so easy with this size slow cooker. And it looks so great in my kitchen, next to the stainless steel appliances. Another great buy from Overstock. If somebody looks for a large size slow cooker, good quality and great price, this is the one to go for.
