Received this as a birthday gift. This multi cooker is easy to use and easy to clean. I made pot roast this weekend. I liked the fact that I could brown my meat in the multi cooker and then add my other ingredients and proceed to slow cook for another 4 hours. Also like the retractable cord which makes it easy to store. My only complaint is that it makes a humming noise while it's being used, which I think is possibly a fan that circulates the heat. Not sure. Other than that it's a great product.
