I absolutely don't know how I prepared meals without it. It's quick, easy, cleanup is no issue, inner-pan lifts right out, no sticking. I roasted Pork Roast and Pork Steaks (moist, falling off the bone), and used the drippings for gravy. Raves from my family and a few friends. I bought my daughter one to ease her cooking and meal-prep (she works a full-time job). I am retired and loving it!!!!
