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: 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.
Summary: My 15-year-old Crock Pot died, and I thought purchasing a higher end model would be a good choice. I prepared a pot roast, just the way I've done it many times with my old Crock Pot. The big difference was that this one overcooked and made it more like hard beef jerky.
At first I loved it, but I should have known better

Summary: After recently moving away from any teflon coated products, I went ahead and bout this slow cooker anyway. At first, it as great. Then after doing some dishes with tomato sauce, I noticed bubbles in the non-stick.
Summary: I purchased this Breville because the ceramic insert in my Kitchen-Aid cracked. I researched many reviews and saw that many people had to replace the ceramic insert in their Kitchen-Aid a few times, and at $80.00 for just the insert it was not worth it.
Summary: Hesitated to buy because I was just over the 'crock pot'...braise some ribs, then slow cook- best ribs ever, meat loaf and potatoes, BBQ chicken, etc- whoever thought to design the braising feature should have gotten a raise..
Summary: This cooker came in excellent condition. it has performed very well and I am happy with it. The insert is rugged and easy to clean. I love the rubber handles! Makes it very easy to carry while hot and it dosn't slip around in the sink while washing it.
