I miss Express Cook
Best Uses
Lacks express setting. It takes 3 key presses to set and start 2 minutes of cooking without express, 1 key press with it. CR says this unit should be reasonably quiet, mine is loud.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
It lasted less than two years.
