Summary: I bought this product as a replacement of my old West Bend slow cooker (which I love) since it was looking so bad and was at least 20 years old. I wanted a replacement for when it did quit. I had it for awhile but decided to get it out of the box to help with Thanksgiving dinner.
... "older" model oblong shaped slow cooker (probably 25-30 years) like this one with the exception of the lid

Summary: I had an "older" model oblong shaped slow cooker (probably 25-30 years) like this one with the exception of the lid. My pot had a glass lid that could be used as a serving platter. It clearly was showing signs of wear. The insides were worn down and the griddle was broken on one end.
Summary: I bought mine because a friend loves hers so much. It is great for cooking roast-like things. No need to add liquid. Easy to clean; light-weight. I plan to cook a turkey breast in it for Thanksgiving. Will free up oven space for other dishes.
Summary: this model replaced a older model I have had for years. the older one worked but, it was old. the knob would get hot. just thought it would be safer to have a newer one. I purchased this one and had it exchanged cause it would not heat up; even after being on for 2 or more hours.
But I have made several meals in this cooker that have been just as good! It is very easy to clean

Summary: This was purchased to replace a 22-yr old slow cooker that was also oblong. I am still getting used to the dial settings, as I would expect, because no recipe, for example, says "slow-cook for 5 hours with the dial set between #3 & #4" , it says to cook on low, medium or high.
Summary: This slow cooker is my favorite appliance in my kitchen and I use it a lot! I have given many as gifts and all who have received them love them as much as I do. My favorite feature of this cooker is the temp, can be adjusted from very low to very high. It is a great shape and easy to clean.
Summary: I had one for 30 years and it finally needed to be replaced. I don't know where amazon gets the products but this one came with instruction manual of 2008, plus when I sent in the warranty card, it was returned saying no such address or something.
