Buy this is you don't have a crockpot

Summary: The best thing about this is the insert that is not crockery. You can brown food on the stove top and then put the insert into the slowcooker and set it on a programmable setting. It is large enought of a big roasting chicken (6 pounds) plus veggies. I have a large Hamilton Beach which I love and that is why I tried this one out for smaller meals.
This slow cooker is great! It is so light II don't dread lifting ...

Summary: This slow cooker is great! It is so light II don't dread lifting it off my pantry shelf to use and everything that I've cooked so far has been really tasty. I can't imagine I would have found anything better and it looks really classy!
Summary: I don't need a lot of functions for the slow cooker. It is not programmable nor custom set the temperature. But who cares? Before I go to work, I set the cooker on low for 8 hrs. And when I come home after work, the roast is ready for me piping hot. And for browning? Just remember to put (spray) some oil before you start the process.
Summary: My sister has this wonderful slow cooker and recommended it to me. I am so glad that she did. I love it! It is lightweight and programmable. I love that I can set it for a certain amount of time. I also like the "warm" setting.
Summary: Have now purchased three of these cookers - one each for our two married children and one for us. Everyone is pleased with theirs so far. The browning feature is great. Exterior stays cool enough to move the unit with hot pads. Does what it says.
Yes I love it - lightweight approach to slow cooking

Summary: I like five things about this slow cooker: 1. Lightweight removable bowl inside. When cooking is done I just lift it out and take it to the table. I have about 4 crock pots of different sizes with the removable ceramic liners, and just got tired of lugging them around. They are heavy and a little awkward to clean. 2. Non-stick and easy to clean 3. Programmable - no more overcooking. 4. Oval-shaped, not round.
Summary: This is my second of this crockpot...the first one arrived damaged, and the lock repeatedly popped back open. I returned it, and received a new one...The 2-star review is based on the second one received, which is not defective, but there are issues with the design that I really don't like. In theory, this works well if you travel a lot with your crockpot.
