Summary: After 19 months of use the gift stopped working. I bought this as a replacement and hope for a longer life. I bought it so the old ceramic pot and lid would work with this. I use it very often, the programmable time and temperature is very handy.
Summary: I have a 6 qt crock pot but decided to try the smaller model because I am cooking for one now. I have yet to cook anything (pot roast, pork roast, chicken) that isn't totally tasteless. The unit itself is quite nice so perhaps I'm just a lousy cook.
Summary: It works very well....high, low and automatically advancing onto warm setting. The programmable feature is a must to get the most out of slow cooking. I'm sure I had the original slow cooker of 30 years ago.....high or low, take your choice!
Summary: This is a great crock pot. I've owned crock pots since my first one which I bought back in 1978. I especially like the high setting because it actually does bubble which speeds up the cooking time.
Summary: Love it! Replaced my original 90's "Crock Pot" with an updated model and it burned and boiled everything. Asked Crock Pot for advice, and even measured the temperature as they requested and my unit was not malfunctioning according to them.
Summary: First off, it's huge even for the smallest size. But what I don't like about it is this: So far I've used it several times at 6 hrs slow cooking and it worked fine, but when I put very cold meat inside (recently defrosted) and set to 8 hrs, I woke up and find it having stopped at 5.30 hrs each time...
Summary: This is the ideal slow cooker for two people. The base is small enough that the liquid and protein in the average recipe are balanced and the protein doesn't dry out, as with small quantities in a larger slow cooker.
Summary: Have had this for a while and it works but perhaps not as promised. This is decidedly not programmable. Programmable to me would include the ability to set a start time. You either have to be there to turn it on or buy and use a timer. Nice size though. Gave my large one away.
