The first thing I'm looking for is an air-tight cooker. The Akorn is not air tight but with some modifications it is close. Controlling the temperature in an air tight cooker is very easy. When the Akorn temp shoots up, its nearly impossible to bring it back down without actually snuffing out the fire. There are several other reasons I want a ceramic but they aren't related to shortcomings of the Akorn. I plan to keep the akorn as well.
