I received this item to test and review and I love it! I've used lots of different so cookers, but this is my favorite. I do a lot of bulk freezer cooking and the huge size of the cooking we'll is fantastic for double or triple portions of meals. I also loved the buffet serving feature with the three compartments. It allows space for keeping large quantities of food hot and serving to a crowd. Great for parties or the holidays. Clean- up was a breeze as the items can go in the dishwasher, but I washed them by hand to see how easy they were to clean. It was a breeze with no scrubbing required. Fantastic item I will use over and over. Versatile and can accommodate large quantities.
