I had the original Crockpot version of this for years. When it broke, I took the opportunity to get the All-Clad version. Nice upgrade for sure. This is digital, extremely easy to clean and has been a rock solid member of my tool set. It lives in the garage on the Gorilla Rack with the Dehydrator and the pantry items. It’s nice to set it and forget it and it doesn’t take up valuable counter space.
