I had a good look round all the slow cookers before buying this one, and I'm really happy. The size is just right for us,easily enough for 4 or 5 people, but not too big that it wouldn't be usable for our small family.
I had considered buying a digital one that you could program, as we are going to be out all day, but honestly I don't think I miss it, and all the ones that you can program are far too big for us anyway as you need to fill them at least a third.
The dish is so easy to clean, its simple, uncomplicated and easy to use.
It's converted me to slow cooking!
