My husband works in new home construction. Almost every single morning since I bought our first Perfect Cooker, he has filled it with canned stew, soup or some kind of leftovers. The lid snaps on and seals, and it has a nice handle which makes it perfect for someone on the go. About a half hour before they are going to sit down to eat, he plugs it in and looks forward to a delicious hot meal. The aroma must make all the other construction guys so hungry and jealous.
This has been the best thing to keep my man well fed and a warm tummy while at work. I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone to take to work with them, even on their desk or in the lunch room. We have always washed the pot by hand and never use anything but the plastic spoon supplied.
One year later and the non-stick coating is still perfect. I always wipe the cooker itself inside and out with a damp cloth. We would not want to be without this "Perfect Cooker." I just bought a second one for our 14-year-old son who has just started working in the automotive department of Canadian Tire. He wants to have a can of hot stew for lunch just like his dad.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
