So far I've used this cooker for steaming vegetables and for boiling rice. I haven't tried deep-frying yet, although I think it will work well for that. In general it's a good product. The temperature control is nice, and the magnetic cord seems like a great safety feature. It's easy to wash, since you can submerge it, and it comes clean easily. My main complaint would be with the steaming basket. It's really very flimsy and small. You can't put many vegetables in it, and it's so thin and weak and only attaches on one side, which means that it tends to tilt down so that it's actually dipping into the water. You can use less water, sure, but then if you need to steam for a while you risk boiling all the water away. And the way the basket tilts down just seems like poor manufacture. I'd like it a lot better if it attached on both sides. Unfortunately, I got this cooker mostly for steaming, so I'm rather disappointed with the delicate basket. In short, if you're looking for something mostly for steaming/blanching, look elsewhere. But otherwise, this cooker seems good for multipurpose use and for braising and frying. And for just over $20, it's certainly worth the price.
