Functionally? It's ok. I did not choose the mixing tower as it was not really worth the storage real estate. But the gap for the tower arm is not sealed well with the cover. So there are several areas for steam/moisture escape. This does make me nervous if I leave items for long cooks and fluid evaporation is higher than I anticipated. No issues yet, but I do make a make-shift plug with some foil.
The user interface is a little bit wonky. You have to await preheating to complete and press start again before the timer can start (or I haven't figured out how to use it by a set and forget then walk away process). But overall, it's not tricky, just not as intuitive as it could be.
Other reviewers have complained about marring on the cooking vessel after a few uses. I have noticed the same. They're not scratches necessarily, but just dulling of the finish that looks like cooked stuck on food. I wonder if this might not be like enameled cast iron in which a little oil helps to condition the coating. I'll try that and see if it makes a difference.
For the price, you might be able to get a similar or even better performing machine. But from a design perspective, I can live with inconveniences (as the cooker still works well) for the aesthetics.
