Excerpt: Great price from BUYDIG- even on EBay it's one of the lowest prices on line- a lot night in retail stores!
Pros: This is the second one I have purchased- without a doubt the best slow cooker on the market- set it and forget it! Would definitely recommend for a working family or a wedding gift! The newer model that I just purchased has a "lock lid" feature keeping all the heat and moisture in the pot. Kuddos to BUYDIG for their fast service in sending in with free shipping and extremely fast service!
Cons: Absolutely none- your missing a great purchase-
Summary: This crockpot may look nice, but it ruins every meal it cooks. The crockpot when in use gives off a strong stench of burning rubber, which sadly is absorbed by the food. The stench never seems to fully fade, no matter how many washes or lemon scrubs you subject the thing to. The odor, that adds extra flavoring to every dish, comes from the lid of the crock pot (the rubber seal). Please save yourself the money (and sanity) and avoid this item.
Excerpt: I purchased this crockpot and it arrived faster than any other product I purchased on line! It simmers stocks and soups perfectly. I made applesauce in it yesterday and my house smelled wonderful all day! It cooks at a perfect temperature, and automatically switches to keep warm! Great product!
Summary: After moving to a part of the country where summertime can be brutally hot and stove-time becomes a well planned exercise in itself a slow cooker looked mighty tempting. With lots of models to choose from it was a difficult decision...manual, digital, crockery insert or metal. Each had advantages and all came with warnings from previous customers about service and durability.
Summary: OK, you're probably going to be shocked at what I'm about to say, but this was my first slow cooker (aka crock pot.) I've never owned one. So, when I went looking for one, this one had a high rating and I bought it. Well, as a newbie to this style of cooking, I was very impressed with it. It cooked as it would, and cleaned up so easily. The stone pot is very heavy, but is good quality. The rubber edging sealed well while cooking (no steam leaks, etc.) also.
Excerpt: This slow cooker is great. It's easy to use and we haven't had any problems from the first few times we have used it. The only slight issue, if there is anything to complain about, is that the lid locking mechanism they designed requires a little negotiating. Otherwise, it's great to use and easy to clean.
