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.
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.
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.
Summary: Old crock broke so forced to shop for a new slow cooker 2 years ago. Looked at simple to programmable, went with this one for price and LOCKDOWN LID and have never regretted it. Easy to clean though it is heavy.
Summary: Rubber Around Lid has horrible smell and totally ruin the food smell. If there is a 0 , I will totally rate this as 0.. Too bad, I can't return it since I used it and just pass 30 days window..
Summary: With a bit of research I quickly determined that this was the best Slow Cooker on the market and, as always, Amazon had the best price. I made my first batch of chili and was very very pleased with the performance too.
Summary: After reading all these reviews and reviews of other slow-cookers I hesitantly chose to buy this cooker. I'd earlier returned a 6-quart Rival Crock-pot to Costco because it boiled at the "Warm" setting so it was impossible to make a decent meal. Many reviews here note that the rubber (latex?
Summary: We bought this crockpot for a replacement for our twenty year old one. The only reason for replacing it is the little handle on the top of the lid separated and left a hole on top. Duct tape has been working fine to hold it on but you can only do that for so long. Other than that it works fine.
Summary: I bought this slow cooker to replace a smaller, beat-up one we have been using for years. The new one is huge, with a clamp-down lid. However, other than that it is not very impressive. Its highest temperature setting will not even get sauce to simmer.
Summary: It works very well however, everything you cook will smell like rubber. I had read reviews on this and seen someone else wrote this about this product to and I thought over time the smell would go away but it doesn't. I would try another brand or diff cooker. i wish I had listened to the review.
