Someone's finally addressed the concern about too-long cooking times/no one home to turn on the pot. This is a 3-qt apparently-programmable cooker that refrigerates your food until time to start cooking.
Not a lot of useful info out there on this thing. Trademark applied for in 2004; company videos on Youtube from 2013; low-end company website with confusing info; only two reviews on Amazon.
brief blogger review:
(What's confusing me? This line from the website:
"It is not a slow cooker. Because of the refrigeration step, not all slow cooker recipes may be suitable"
Am I intrigued? I love gadgets. I do work 12-hr shifts, with a 45 min/1 hr commute each way, and sometimes it would be great to do a 4-6 hr cook while working.
Would I buy it? Not at that price. For now I'll just crock something a day ahead and reheat when I get home.
