The bottom heats evenly, the non-stick inner surface cleans easily & the blue-grey color makes it easy to tell if it's clean (unlike black non-stick liners); like the glass lid but would really like it if it had a steam vent in it.

Was curious to see if the newer ceramic non-stick surface would work as well as the phased -out ns -- working well so far. The only thing I would change is adding a steam vent & a plastic handle to the lid.

A good, solid, powerful machine at a competitive price. Especially like the small extra features like finger holds on the bottom & retractable cord.
