I bought this to replace a one year old Breville which got way too hot and boiled everything like crazy. I can't believe how much better this Morphy Richards is. The three heat settings- low medium and high, make it very controllable, and the low setting really is low so you can leave it on all day when you are at work. Because the pan is metal, it is very light and very easy to clean-plus if you want it goes in the dishwasher. Yes, the pan does move easily on the stove top when you want to brown things- a major plus is that the one pan does both the browning and slow cooking but all you need to do is hold it with an oven glove, so unlike a few other reviews I don't really see this as a problem it just makes it easier to get out and put away. I would definitely recommend this product if you want a slow cooker for up to 4 people.
