This compact unit fulfills a variety of appliance needs- it will steam, stir-fry, keep food warm, slow cook or even grill. The heavy-duty die-cast aluminum pot is big enough for large meals and is premium nonstick coated. Make steamed vegetables and rice, or get creative with an authentic stir fry! You can also use it as an indoor grill- the ridges in the inner pot allow excess fat to drip away from your food for healthier meals. For stews, soups and gumbos, just turn the unit to the desired temperature and let simmer, or turn down the heat and let your meal slow-cook all day long. Features a full-view tempered glass lid. Dishwasher-safe.
