I got this a few months ago (not from Amazon) and it is a great slow cooker. Simple to operate (Low, High, and Warm settings, no 'programmable' stuff), does the job great, and looks nice sitting on the counter (mine is out all the time as I've been using it almost every day for something).
The lid is very well fitting so no problems with evaporation and you can use less liquid in your cooking. The inner ceramic cooking vessel is very substantial and holds heat exceptionally well. On High the unit heats up much faster than some older crock pots, but I haven't had any problem with burning or sticking. This was the largest cooker I could find and it is perfect for meals for our family of six with plenty of leftovers. All around a great deal and wonderful addition to the kitchen.
There are lots of good slow cooker cook books available, too, that offer everything from super simple (relying on premixed seasonings or sauces) to gourmet fare. One of my favorites is Judith Finlayson's Delicious & Dependable Slow Cooker Recipes Created for Canada's Kitchens.
