I have a very small (apartment) kitchen. This appliance is small enough to store on the counter. I also keep it there to remind me to use it often. Great design/sleek appearance. Love the stainless steel! I am useless with any kind of appliance, but the instructions and hints were great. The cord is unobtrusive, out of sight and easy to get to. I think the best hint was to spray the pot with cooking spray prior to adding any food; clean up was a breeze. Best of all, I do not have to keep taking off the lid to stir. I am never ready to eat when planned, so the automatic shift to warm is the best. Oh, and the food comes out perfect. I did think the original price was steep, but I got it at a great sale price!
