I have 2 other Crock-Pots, but when I saw this one I had to have it! My other two are round and thus make slow cooking roasts and the like very difficult. This one is by far the best one I’ve purchased. I love the automatic shut off function and the warming function, both are very convenient. I can set the Crock-Pot first thing in the morning and it will automatically switch to the keep warm function if we aren’t ready to eat yet! My food is never overcooked! I use it at least once a week, I love having days where I can throw dinner in and forget about it until we’re ready to eat and this Crock-Pot helps with that tremendously! I would recommend this or any Crock-Pot to anyone! In fact, it’s the first thing I buy anyone starting out on their own, everyone needs a Crock-Pot!
