This is the first of this type of appliance I have had. It took me some experimenting to figure it out, but nothing extraordinary. I have been using it for about a month now, and everything I have tried so far has been a success. Some things come out average, as with other cooking methods, and some come out fantastic. I would put it this way - if you want something that can do what a crock pot does and more, only better tasting, and which cooks in a fraction of the time, consider this. I also like that fact that I can cook entire meals in this, and only have one easy to clean pot to wash out, mine is the 6-quart model. Recipes which say "10 minutes to cook" etc. really are 10 minutes, plus about 10 minutes to heat up, but that is still very fast.
I am really happy with this, and find myself eating healthier food than I used to, because of the speed and how good things taste.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
