The lid on mine needed to be wiggled after heat up to create a seal. I noticed flakes of non-stick coating in our food after only two weeks of use. The keypad on my Power XL quit working less than a week later. The grifters at TriStar Products claimed that I had a "faulty unit" that can't be replaced without paying a $24.99 shipping fee to return and another $24.99 to send.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
