Couple of years ago I purchased a Technique slow cooker/steamer/browner on clearance. Little did I know...this appliance was going to be my go to piece when I was hosting people at my house or needed to take a dish elsewhere. I get so many compliments on it because the lid is hinged and it's easy to dish out the food. It also has an easy carry handle and a teflon inner pot which is so easy to clean. I've searched QVC and Ebay to see if I could find another one of these somewhere. Does anyone know where I might be able to find one of these? Even more important, why did Technique decide to stop making these? If these were still offered, I wouldn't have a problem finding a Christmas/Birthday present for anyone.
