Summary: I got this mainly for overnight steel cut oatmeal and stone ground grits. It cooks perfect on both. It is the only one I have seen this small with warm low and high settings. This will be great for dips and meatballs at parties. I have a huge Rival that cooks to hard on low.
Summary: This is the best small slow cooker I could find and you can't beat the price. As others have mentioned, this is the only one I have seen that has more than an on/off switch--or some of the small ones don't even have that, you just plug them in.
5 quart cooker that was more cylindrical and so not always so good for anything but soups

Summary: I use this slow cooker all the time. I bought it to replace another 1.5 quart cooker that was more cylindrical and so not always so good for anything but soups. Pros: Its a good size for couples or smaller batches of soup.
Summary: Love my little crockpot. It's the perfect size for making chili, soup, etc. for one (or two) with leftovers. And it's the perfect size for making queso dip to bring to parties, especially during football season.
Summary: As I live alone, it's often difficult to cook for just one. This slow cooker solved that problem. It's perfect size for a single meal. Works great. It has a knob to adjust the temperature (low, med, & hi). And the pot is removable for easy cleaning.
Summary: Can you believe this was the only small cooker I was able to find? Certainly makes cooking for one so much better, hated cooking for the neighbors or freezing those despicable left over foods that seem to get shuffled and eventually wind up in the disposal. So much nicer to have fresher food stuffs.
Summary: My adult son has a severe ,rare food allergy. this mini crock pot is BRIGHT RED, and easily distinguishes at potlucks and family get togthers that is the "allergy" food. It is portable.so hot lunchonthe go is possible, and again, a white "laundry "marker and this little heater make communial fridges...
Summary: Works as well as any slow cooker I have. Perfect for cooking dinner's for two or for having hot dip at a party. Just beware, you will start getting ads for "singles" cookbooks and other "singles" sites, which is kind of hilarious.
