Since it's cheap, I'm afraid it won't last long, so I have to warn my kids only drying the bottom of the inner pot is allowed when using it.
I also tried all the recipes and surprisingly, the pasta, rice, and pulled pork turned out more than my expectation. For the cheesecake, I never bothered to turn it around, and just put it in the refrigerator for hours; my daughter loved it. She actually had made a cheesecake from the scratch in a traditional way a few months ago and she was surprised how easy this one could be. For the chicken pot pie, I failed after following the instruction, so I just put the chicken and the soup in. It turned out delicious! I even tried the brown rice, and it worked almost as good as my expensive cooker.
I immediately gave it to my college boy who was far from home. Pulled pork was his favorite. I have to say this cooker is easy and perfect, with careful operation!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
