I purchased this cooker to replace a pricier programmable one that had died. I loved it from the first day. The little crock is perfect for dips or taking to work to keep my food warm. For those that said it never got hot, did you make sure that you hadn't set the pot to warm? It defaults to that and you have to change it.
I have used this 3 times now, each time it didn't cook the food properly (would need to cook twice the amount of time as it should). Wasted money and time on 3 meals and then had to buy carryout so we had something to eat that night. This is going back!
I can make meals that feed my whole family (of 5) with this pot! I love it.
I bought this product for my wife as she likes to make stew. The pot is malformed and the lid does not retain heat. The crock pot looks great, feels expensive, but it is ineffective in it's intended purpose which is to stew.
Ordered online, when received from shipper, the slow cooker was broken into several pieces. Original package was in another box NOT marked fragile and NOT packed sufficiently. Store & online ordering DO NOT work together for replacements. Will not order online again for breakable items.
This is a very good size pot and cooks evenly. Very good size for a family gathering or holiday. Good, sturdy ceramic bowl inside which prevents sticking or spot burning like a metal pot.
