My wife and I are 82 years of age, and recently movedf from a bungalow to a one-bedroom Retirement Flat to be nearer to our family. We have hadd to learn to lvie within a very confortable but compact space, and reduce cooking and other types of equipment. This compact cooker has therefore proved to be ideal. We find we can prepare a small piece of brisket, chops, chicken legs, stewing beef, leave it all day or overnight, and it is perfect. Usually we find it provides enough for 2 days, so there is a minimum energy use as a bonus, The price is excellent, the quality of the product of the highest order, easy to use and to clean, and it is just what we needed. It is now in constant use.
