Summary: I do like this slow cooker, it's very roomy without being too large. My last slow cooker was so heavy to lift out of the pot, this one is light weight and I especially like the fact you can put it in the oven and use it stovetop.

Summary: Great cooker! My wife was hesitant to try this cooker because it wasn't the traditional ceramic pot style. She thought it wouldn't cook evenly, and probably burn on the bottom. That isn't the case at all. This cooks great.
Summary: Works very well but lost a star due to the lid not fitting properly. Have used slow cookers like this from West Bend for 15+ years and love them, this is a versatile slow cooker but the lid does not seem well made. Got food between the glass and metal banding that goes around the lid.

Summary: I have used your slow cooker for many years dating back to the 70's. One time we were on vacation on Christmas day in Texas. I found out that there would be no restaurants open on Christmas in the area. I went to the grocery store the day before and purchased a beef roast, potatoes and carrots.
Summary: I purchased this slow cooker expecting years of reliable service. After the first few uses, the teflon inside the pot began to delaminate and fall into my food. I must now put a brown-in bag inside the cooking pot before I use this device to avoid contaminating my food.
Summary: After contacting West Bend I received a new pot and have been using it over a year with no problems. The company was aware of and working on the problem when I contacted them Item purchased on 11/27/2013.

Summary: West Bend has always been a favorite company for kitchen electrics. I still use my 30 year old West Bend slow cooker and gave my departed mother's 30 year old West Bend slow cooker to my youngest daughter-in-law. I recently ordered a West Bend electric fry pan and so far so good on it.
Summary: At first, this was a nice slow cooker. Easy to clean. After the first few meals, I noticed that once you turn it off, it loses heat quickly. That's probably because it's just a metal pot with no insulation.
Summary: I bought this for my husband at Christmas! I thought that is was neat that it had three capabilities. I used it ONE time for 7 hours (slow cooking) the handbook states it can slow cook up to 12 hours on high. This was on low for only 7. The rubber stoppers inside were warped.
