This is the best slow cooker and magnificent in design and function. I have had many slow cookers, and just this summer ordered and use the 7 qt Cuisinart Cooker. This 4 qt is so much better. The function to brown or braise in the cooker, then switch to the slow cook mode is just fantastic. The aluminum pan has great handles, is light, and easy to pour off the broth, rinse or wash in the sink, does not get slippery or heavy, and then can be washed in the top rack of the dishwasher. The heavy porcelain pan gets slippery, hard to pour off, difficult to wash or rinse in the sink, and very heavy to wash in the dishwasher. I am so very impressed I just ordered the 4 qt multi cooker for my son. Thanks. So wonderful.

Love this sleek toaster. Beautiful on counter. High quality and very even toasting of all kinds of bread.
Make most of my own bread and have all sizes and shapes and this toaster accommodates most. Would be even better if deeper to accommodate the small loaves in my Zojirushi bread maker.

Had a bread maker for years and tired of it. Recently buying artisan breads from bakery, but had to keep up with schedule and baking times. Love this Zoji. Have made Hawaiian bread and cinnamon raisin bread and also gave bread to my son who visits from 500 miles away. He loved the bread also and ate 1/2 loaf on his trip back home. Love this bread maker. Recipes are perfect for size of small loaf.
