Bought it online, on sale, and figured, what-the-heck, at this price, with in-store pickup, I can get a few good uses out of it. I fully expect a lot more than that now. I have not been disappointed.
PRO: Made chili on first use, cooked on 'slow' for 12 hrs. Cooking level was perfect, with only a few bubbles every minute. Did not burn 1 piece of meat or scorch any of the spices. Clean up of ceramic bowl and lid was easy, with only a dishcloth, soap and water. Lid retainer band (rubber band) is tight, holds the lid in place, and locks well under the handles, without slipping.
CON: Bad fitting lid. Lid seemed poorly made, did not fit the ceramic bowl properly and left space between the ceramic edge and lid, but, it did cover the entire opening of the ceramic bowl. Aluminum rim around the top of the outer casing is exposed and, IMHO, Will Burn you if you touch it (and this was on 'slow' cook), so, be careful. Outer casing is very thin and can be easily dented or damaged. Handle and store it carefully. This is why I rated it a '3-Star' on 'Durability'.
FINAL: I did not expect much from this cooker, considering the price. As far as cooking, it more than exceeded my expectations. If you take care of it, be careful how you handle it, and remember not to get burned . . . I consider this a Very Good Buy - at the price I paid for it.
