If you entertain a lot, this needs to be a must in your house. Additionally, if you don't love that crock pots just make a mush of food, this is so great to have a full meal but all things "not touching" or mushed together like a soup or stew.
The hubs got me this for Christmas as a surprise - since I had mentioned it a few times that it could be a fun thing to have. AND IT IS!!!
So far I've done a wonderful meatloaf, pasta and broccoli dinner in it; used it for an event at work for 3 different hot dips; and used it for a dinner party to re-heat everything I had cooked the night before for the event.
Seriously, if you entertain a lot this is for you!
