I bought this 6 qt stainless steel slow cooker at JC Penney two weeks ago for $20. Used a $10 coupon that was mailed to the house. Item also came with an $11 mail-in-rebate.
Has a Good Housekeeping seal on the box. Appeared to be of reasonable quality. Simple OFF, LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH mechanical switch knob. Unit rated at 250W with a heavy duty pot. Only minor complaint is the lack of an "ON" light.
Made some meatballs, ribs, and pot roast. Highly recommended even at $20. I've seen pressure cookers for $50. But they are harder to clean. Plus the seal can leak over time, reducing the effectiveness of the cooker.
