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: 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: 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.
Summary: I'm retired, but my wife still works so I do a lot of the cooking. We have a large slow cooker for pot roasts, but this little gem is just PERFECT for the two of us. I use it for chili and other soups and it's just the right size.
Summary: Alright... Price, size and functionality are great. For my my first few cooks, this was a great deal. Problem is, after only 3 cooks, the ceramic bowl insert started to develop some hairline cracks. One crack showing faintly both inside and outside, which is a good indication it is a deep crack.
Summary: I had a pricey 3 1/2 quart programmable slow cooker whose panel had died for a second time. Frustrated as I was I decided to forgo progammability in favor of not having to throw another one out as the warranty expires............
Summary: Absolutely love this little guy in a gorgeous bright color! temp control on these smaller models is hard to find but this one works perfectly. Used it to make a large batch of queso; kept it at the perfect temp without scalding or getting the 'skin' on top. A fabulous value on a handy product!
