You do bring up some good points Tony. I think that it is fair to say that each cooker has its advantages and disadvantages. The thing I like best about this Lang is that is has a variety of heat locations, or hot/cold spots. This would be good if you need to hurry up cooking something or for just keeping something else warm. Correct me if I am wrong but this is not the case with the Spicewine. Even temps are a hallmark.
