Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good multipurpose product - but not a pressure cooker I am a fan of Presto slow cooker/steamer/fryer units. I am disappointed to see that it has a one-star review because JCPenney has mislabeled the product and the other customer was rightfully disappointed. (JCPenney has also mislabeled other items in their catalog ... might be worth having someone look into that. .) Therefore, this review is for the product as it designed to be used. Pros: * Multipurpose - I only need a fryer a few times a year. *You can adjust portion sizes and seasonings more easily as the dish is cooking. * You have control of the temperature setting at all times. * You can brown meat or saute vegetables before turning down the temperature to slow cook without having to dirty other pans. * It is easy to clean; fully immersible in soap and water and light weight due to the non-stick coating and aluminum construction. * Doesn't take up as much space as a full sized crockpot. Cons: * You don't have a timer and it isn't programmable. In other words, you can't rely on it to turn itself off or switch to a "warm" setting after "x" number of hours. * Because its heating element is only on the bottom of the pot (like a griddle), food can become scorched if you don't pay attention or let too much liquid evaporate. Some recipes need to be stirred from time to time. And if you care, here's the back story regarding my purchase. I have one that is about 5 years old and I keep it at a ski vacation rental. It is in great shape, but, honestly, it does not get used too much. It should last for years. The non-stick coating on my original unit was rather scratched after 15+ years of use. I donated it to charity when I moved a few months ago thinking I wouldn't need it because I also have a nice programmable crock pot. However, I missed it. As a single person, I don't really need a full crock pot for everything I'd like to make in a slow cooker. Then, what finally convinced me that purchasing another one was "ok", is the fancy programmable crockpot failed to cook a chicken posole properly. After 8 hours on low, the frozen chicken breasts were still raw inside when I went to shred the meat. If I'd make the dish in the Presto cooker, it would have been very easy to adjust the temperature for 15 or 20 minutes to finish cooking the chicken. Instead, I had to transfer everything to soup pots and finish it on the stove. It was an annoying mess. So, in the end, the crockpot is great for things like roasts or whole chickens and you can "set it and forget it" for a lot of recipes. The Presto is a champ for soups, chillis, and stews if you don't mind tending the food now and then.
