Good points

  • Excellent results for our corned beef and chilli beef.
  • Very easy to use.
  • Lid handle is large and doesn’t get hot.
  • Unit is easier to store than most others (it’s round and small-but-tall).
  • Reasonably light.
  • Good price.

But

  • Instructions are basic.
  • Pan has small handles with no grip (so can be difficult to lift when full).
  • Small 3L capacity.
