I bought my Presto multi-cooker at WalMart about two years ago and still use it frequently. The two best features are that it is so versatile -- and that it is so easy to clean.
I just made and cooked a gallon of spaghetti sauce all day in my multicooker. How many cooking devices are there where you can sauté vegetables and fry hamburger for spaghetti sauce, then add the other ingredients and build the sauce in the same cooker, turn the temperature down and let it simmer all day? The sauce is perfect!
Many cooking products pay lip service to being non-stick, but this one lives up to its advertisements. After frying peppers and onions in the cooker, adding ground beef, tomato sauce and other ingredients and cooking all day, I would have had to throw out some other cooking kettles that I've used because of baked-on, impossible to clean foods. But this product lives up to its non-stick advertisements; Is soaked it briefly in water and detergent, and the entire unit just easily wiped clean. The design with the removable heating element makes it completely immersible in water and that is a great feature also.
My favorite use for the Presto multi-cooker is for homemade soups, for much the same reasons. Ingredients can be fried or sautéed at high heat, then the unit can be turned down to slow-cook the soup.
Along with my George Foreman grill and my GE hand blender, also purchased at WalMart, the Presto Multicooker is one of the most frequently-used devices in my kitchen.
