"Perfect size for cooking for two to four people with the right amount of leftovers," another wrote. "I found that when I cooked with my six quart manual there was a tendency to fill it up and I had more left overs than needed. This will hold a small whole chicken, roast or ham. Temperature controls and accuracy are ok and for the price and the reputation of the manufacturer you cannot go wrong."
