Fine but I would spend a bit more and buy a different one if I had to do over.

Summary: I don't use it often but it has served me well. Really enjoy the clamp down seal feature for traveling. I do have to rotate the insert halfway through cooking because the backside has a hot spot and will scorch but apparently most slowcookers will do this.
Hamilton Beach 33165 Stay or Go Cooker and Steamer
27 December 2013
Summary: If you are looking for a crock pot then look no further, this is for sure a 5 star! What I can tell you about it is the cover locks! The temperatures are perfect, and its got handles for moving it around, its also large. I would buy this one again for sure, luv,luv,luv it!!!!
Summary: This large crock pot is great for any size meal. I easily fit 8 pork chops and 3 sliced apples in it with room to spare. The lid locks in place securely for travel and the spoon that clips on the lid is very handy. The price from Amazon was excellent and with free shipping too.
Summary: I was attracted to this appliance because of all the positive reviews and it appeared that I could use it as a steamer for shellfish, etc. as well. It's even named "Cooker and Steamer." I can't find any instructions in the enclosed literature or on the HB web page about how to use it as a steamer.
