I BOUGHT THESE FOR MY TWO SISTERS AS A LITTLE GIFT AFTER LENGTHY CONVERSATIONS ABOUT CHICKEN PREPARATION. I HAVE PURCHASED ONE SOME TIME AGO AND WAS GLAD TO FIND THEM AT CHEF'S.
BY FAR THE MOST MOIST. TENDER FOWL COOKER AVAILABLE ... WHEN THE WHITE MEAT IS AS JUICY AS THE DARK MEAT ... ALL IN THE SAME PAN ... YOU KNOW THERE IS SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT IT.
