It's spring! With the sun shining a little brighter for longer, we don't have to wear sweaters and down coats anymore, but in many parts of the country it's not quite warm enough to go without a jacket.

"Old reliable!" gushed one rave reviewer. "Just ordered my third one of these. I’ve had the last one for over 10 years, and while it still technically works, it doesn’t get hot as well as it used to and was showing the wear of very regular use. There are newer, fancier models, but I don’t need bells and whistles. This model has served me well my whole adult life. Cooking could not possibly be easier. I can fit tons of chicken or beef in there and count on it to be thoroughly cooked and tender! Always a crowd pleaser. Highly recommend."
