... this slow cooker for 2 years and I generally liked it. I think it runs a little hot ...

A. Perella, Amazon
15 January 2015
  • Summary: So I had this slow cooker for 2 years and I generally liked it. I think it runs a little hot but I've gotten used to that. But just last week, I went to clean the lid. There was a sticky grime that had built up around the gasket, and as I was cleaning it, the gasket detached. And the way it's constructed, once it starts coming out, you can't put it back together.

I don't love it

Hutch Family, Amazon
8 December 2014
  • Summary: I've had this crock pot for over a year now, and the longer I have it, the less I like it. My issues: 1. Your hand gets burned by steam when you open the lid. I've had to learn to use a wooden spoon to lift the lid, but goodness gracious if you forget it's going to hurt. 2. The lid doesn't go all the way up when it's on my counter under my upper cabinets.

SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT

K. Palmer "Kitchen Diva", Amazon
30 November 2014
  • Summary: My 15 yr old crockpot finally starting getting hairline fractures running through the ceramic insert, so I decided it was time to retire it and get a new one with a few more bells and whistles than the old model. First of all I wanted one that had the option to program ANY given number of hours whether in High or Low mode. Before, I could only do 4-6 hrs in LOW and 8-10 hrs on High, and then warm.

So Happy We Replaced our Old Slow Cooker

AKV, Amazon
22 November 2014
  • Summary: Perfect size for us. Love the features. Easy to clean. We like finding new recipes and use this a lot. We love how it finishes cooking and automatically sets itself to "warm" so it's just right whenever we make it to the dinner table.

I love the teflon insert for searing foods first

Doris Sims, SPHR "The Succession Consultant, LLC", Amazon
17 November 2014
  • Summary: I used to use my ceramic-one piece slow cooker only rarely because it was so hard to clean. Now that I purchased this crock pot several months ago, I use it 1-2 times per week for everything from entrees, to Thanksgiving stuffing, to desserts, etc. I love the teflon insert for searing foods first, and very importantly, it is so, so, so much easier to clean! I rarely write reviews but because I am so pleased with this product I had to write about it!

  • Summary: This slower cooker works okay, the exception is the nonstick coating pits and is is already useless due to poor quality!

Very happy

Bob in Gaithersburg, Amazon
29 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a much more expensive device that was versatile in theory but failed repeatedly in practice in the year that I used it and its warranty replacement; it was also very heavy and a beast to move around. The one thing I really liked about that device, though, was the aluminum non-stick pot that was *so* much easier to clean than the ceramic crock pots I had used for decades.

I read through all of the reviews and I don't remember seeing anything about how easy it is to burn yourself from the steam whil

MDavidWalker, Amazon
28 October 2014
  • Summary: To be honest, I read through all of the reviews and I don't remember seeing anything about how easy it is to burn yourself from the steam while opening the lid. Every time we have used this, we have a hard time opening the lid without getting burned. The cooker works well and I like that the lid clamps down securely. I haven't traveled with it while its been full, so I don't know how tight it keeps everything in there?

poor lid opening

Trix155, Amazon
23 October 2014
  • Summary: I do not like the set up with the lid to be opened by tilting it back on its back hinges. The steam released causes the hands and forearm to be exposed to the steam. I advise everybody looking for a slow cooker to select a lid that comes off completely. This opening mechanism might also not be good for putting the slow cooker eg under a cabinet as it might not open the lid completely and unnecessarily expose the usually glued cabinets to steam.

Best Slow Cooker

BG, Amazon
7 September 2014
  • Summary: This is the best slow cooker I've ever owned. The aluminum pan was a concern over the traditional ceramic one, but the weight savings and ease of cleaning make up for it. Not to mention the advantage of prepping the food the night before in the slow cooker pan and then just pop it in the next AM, very helpful.
