I recently had to throw away my electric sauce pan. My mother in law gave it to me for Christmas quite a few years ago. I didn’t use it very much at first. Then I discovered how great it is. We use it at least once a week to make macaroni and cheese in for lunch. The recipe I use has you put the macaroni and water in, then you cook it until the water is absorbed. No draining! Perfect, since the kids usually make it. Even though they are teenagers, I still worry about them burning themselves while pouring a big pot of boiling water into the colander. I also use it for big family meals. It’s perfect for keeping gravy or vegetables are the right temperature.
