My favorite crockpot of 15 yrs finally gave out so I hoped this new one would do the trick esp when I make a big batch of posole. I have used it 3 times and it has been great! Posole cooked overnight in Low setting, and another time I tried it on High during the day. Each time the food was tasty and tender and moist. I plan to try other dishes and am optimistic of the outcome. The crockpot is very attractive and has been easy to clean. One comment, the juices from posole did drip into the outside pot and burned a bit but it was not difficult to clean. Hope it lasts a long time!
