The large oval size, feeds my family of 6. I received this 8 quart slow cooker as a Christmas gift since I've been talking about getting one for months. The slow cooker hasn't overheated/over cooked. My husband and I have both used it. The only bad things I can say about it so far is the cord is super short which is a major pain for me personally, also the loss doesn't sit perfectly on the cooker but it has been a problem. If the cord was longer it would have received 5 stars for sure!
Cooks way too hot / uncovered screw on bottom burned hole in my table.
