  1. I like everything about it except it is very hard to remove the wire basket from the pan. Just pushing the button on the handle doesn’t work. It is very annoying.

  2. It broke within 6 months! I paid $129.00 for it in Dec. 2020. Also the timer sound knob stopped working 2 months after purchase. What a waste of money!
