Summary: Nice slow cooker, can brown ingredients on the stove and transfer to slow cooking easily. Cleans very easily both inside and out. Really like the hybrid switch that cooks on high for a couple of hours and then lowers the temp. Doesn't have a lot of settings but just a few practical ones.
Summary: Overall I like this slow cooker because of its functionality, large flat bottom that you can put on a stovetop and brown meats. The downside is that the teflon surface scratches extremely easily. I've never used any metal utensils and the bottom is really scratched and worn.
Summary: Horrible quality inside and out. When I put it on low, after 4 hours with closed lid my chicken felt cold to touch on top. When I put it on high my chicken was over cooked in 40 minutes, meat coming apart from bones.
Love the feature where you can brown on the stove ...

Summary: The low setting is very high. I ended up returning the slow cooker since I really needed to be able to leave the slow cooker on for a long period of time (8 hours) without the recipe getting dry. Recipes that I had made in my older slow cooker on low had not dried out. In this slow cooker it did.
Summary: I LOVE THIS MACHINE...It's easily used and can toggle between two settings. You can even brown your meat or sear it using the same insert you put in the pot. I made some pulled BBQ pork first off...it was to last a few days....it didn't make it a full day. If you need a new crock pot..
Summary: I purchased this Slow Cooker in on April 13th, 2010. I have two major issues with it . First there is no timer on this cooker. If you leave the house it will not shut off. Secondly, and more damaging, is the fact that the inlet is painted gray.
Summary: I love this thing! Searing. And. Simmering. In one...Duh. It seems like it should be a no-brainer and should have been around for a LOT longer than this has. I love this thing. My carnitas, osso buco, and coq au vin have turned out outstanding.
Summary: After 6 months of almost daily use and loving the 7qt Calaphon slow cooker, it got what many others got, a cracked insert, non-replaceable. So I bought the Breville stainless steel slow cooker which I love even more! Easy to use, easy to clean and shouldn't crack as it's made out stainless steel.
Summary: This is my 2nd Breville slow cooker.. I used the first one every week until the lining started peeling. Lasted a long time and is a great cooker! Can do so much with it! I prepare a lot of soups & chili's for my husband to take to work. You can even put a chicken in it, no liquid..
Summary: Works well for cooking larger batches of chili, soups, or a roast. The insert comes in handy for browning onions or heating quickly on stovetop. My round slow cooker is smaller and less versatile.
