Excerpt: I got the Hamilton Beach Set 'n Forget 5 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker for Christmas this year and I absolutely love it! Mine is red and very sleek looking. My favorite feature is that it is programmable so I can set the number of hours and it will turn off by itself and keep the food warm.
Excerpt: I love, love, love this slow cooker. I had actually given up on slow cookers because i couldnt get anything right in them and eventually i learned that it was because I was overcooking even on the low setting. I eventually caved and got the programmable one and I couldn't be happier.
Excerpt: While this is the most expensive slow cooker we have purchased, the programmable settings really make things easy for my wife. She does much more slow cooking than I do. Unlike with the earlier, cheaper models, she can set things to turn on and off at will.
Excerpt: I had this slow cooker about 2 years and while it worked it was great. It heated well & I loved the lid locking feature. I didn't use it very often so I expected to get more life out of it but one day I came home & instead of smelling a yummy roast I had a dead slow cooker.
Excerpt: I love my slowcooker; it's one of my favorite kitchen appliances : ) I've never used the temperature probe with it, but I have used the programmable features. You can either set it to low or high and you can set the amount of hours that it will cook at that temperature.
Excerpt: I purchased this Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker about eight months ago. I have used it at least once a week ever since. This crock pot is amazing and as a soup lover it is a must for my kitchen.
Summary: This Slow Cooker is really great. I love the "WARM" setting, which keeps your food at a heated temperature when your cooking time is done. You don't even need to worry about coming home on time--it's waiting for you, and it's warm.
Excerpt: This crockpot was a gift to us over five years ago. It's options are very basic, but it gets the job done. The setting button offers a keep warm, low and high option. High can get very hot really fast, depending on the item. I always add extra liquid to my recipes. The insert is very easy to clean.
Excerpt: After breaking the last crockpot I had, I purchased a Hamilton Beach crockpot. I wanted a standard crockpot, nothing fancy. Although this is a no frills crockpot, it certainly gets the job done. The crockpout has three settings - high/low/keep warm. I have found this crockpot easy to clean and use.
Excerpt: I purchased this smaller Hamilton Beach crockpot last fall (September or October). It is ideal for two people or smaller family meals, although I recently used it for an entire bag of meatballs. They fit but it was all the crockpot could hold. So far, it has worked perfectly.
