I purchased this based on the previous reviews. It is NOT a slow cooker at all! It burned everything the 3 times I tried it. It cooked on High; Low never seemed to exist. I was so disgusted that I threw it out when I tried to cook shrimp chowder. We left for 2 hours, with the thing set on Low and the chowder was burned to a crisp.
I have had this Crock Pot for five years and have always had problems with it cooking too hot. I made one recipe that said to cook on low for five hours, and then it was done after 2 hours! And I have come home to pot roast that was burnt. I usually have to add twice as much water as called for when making soups. I have also had problems with water "spitting" out of the lid once it gets heated up. I have finally given up on it and I'm shopping for a new one.
This is a great crockpot, considering the price. It works great, from bbq to stew and soup. Not all crockpot works the same where temperature is concerned. After a few experiment, this crockpot works the ALL good for me.. its a keeper!
I bought this to replace my 20 year-old crock pot and I love this one. Great shape, easy to use and it cooks the meat thoroughly within a relatively short period of time. I would definitely recommend this crock pot for the price and for the performance.
I love it's timer setting! You can set cooking hours 4-6 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low. After cooking, it automatically goes to 'warm' setting. Because of work I gotta leave the house at 5 am and come home around 5 or 6 pm. If I set things up, the night before and plug in before i leave the house, i can have a decent dinner as soon as i get home.
The best Crock pot I have owned. easy cleaning, I plann on buying another one for my daughter.
I use a crockpot infrequently but this one didn't last a year with very little use. The features with timers were great and the size was perfect.
I loved the features on this that is why I bought it. But I will not be using this one anymore!!!! I cook everything on low and it burns everything! It cooks way to hot!!! Will not use it ever again! I have had other slow cookers and have never had this problem!
I tried to like this crock pot. I really did.
However, the low setting on this crock pot is like the high setting on any other crock pot, and unless you are home to monitor the meal constantly, you will end up with food that that burned crunchy-dry because all of the liquid boiled out hours before you noticed.
My advice? After the experience of a couple of ruined dinners, I suggest you make another crock pot choice.
this is my second smart crock pot. I just love it. I use it at least 3 times a week.What I like best is I can put my food in it ,program it and when I come home from work it's ready to go. I also like the fact that when it's done it will go on warm setting so the food doesn't get to done!
I work 12 hour days.. So I'm gone more than 13 hours if a recipe calls to be cooked for 10 hours by the time I get home its way over cooked... NOT!!! ANYMORE... This crock pot is GREAT!! it stays warm till I get home and its fabulous everytime!!!
Yesterday we cooked a roast in it and it cooked so hot that the ceramic bowl developed about a million small cracks (it fractured). Some of the juices from the meat escaped through the cracks. That's it... into the garbage it goes. The last crock pot we had lasted over 15 years, I guess that it is too much to expect it to last five years. We're searching for another one, one that will last.
Was going to use it for New Years Day dinner. Plugged it in, went to church, came home to cold ruined food. It looked so good as a decoration, not a working item. Very disappointing for our guests and me. But thanks anyway. Will be taking it back for a refund and ask that our ruined food be reimbursed.
I have had a Rival crock pot in the past and was excited to get a new one. I was very disappointed. The first time it took 14 hours for a beef stew and it was still not done. I thought maybe I did something wrong so I tried again. The following weekend I tried a small pot roast. Put it on high but after 4 hours the vegetables were still hard and the meat was still raw. I am returning it and looking at another brand.
The first thing I tried was a roast on a day I was at home just so I could see how the pot would perform. I was very disappointed that after only about 5 hours on low it was already done. I switched it to warm and in just a couple of hours it had cooled off so much that I could put my hands on the side of the pot. I'm gone 10 hours during the work day and I just won't be able to use it like I wanted to. Also disappointed that the condensation collects around the lid and sputters out, leaving a big mess on the counter (and floor). I don't like that there are only 4 time settings, you just don't have many options. Maybe I'll try a frozen piece of meat next, that would take longer to cook. Overall I'm very disappointed but I guess maybe I expected too much for the price. But it is a pretty pot.
The handle on the lid broke, it had a locking mechanism which broke, now the handle on the side is breaking. I hate to toss it because the crock pot still works but all the pieces are falling apart!
i have nothing but compliments for this! this has to be one of the best purchases i've made as far as for a cooking appliance. i prepare my food, set the timer and thats it. i've only had it less than a week but i've used it twice for porkchops and for chicken breasts. the porkchops were sooo tender, the meat was literally falling off the bone and the chicken had so much flavor to it. i love this!!
Received as a gift works great, looks nice and it keeps your food warm if you want it to even after it turns off.
I ordered this for my mom who lives in Florida, I live in California. The ordering was easy, shipping was cheap and fast and my mom loves the crock pot. I have one also, a larger size, and I've used it to make soups, lasagne and stews. It's very convenient and my mom thinks so too!
This product is excellent and is a wonder.... It really does cook fast and the only feature I would love it have on it is that sometimes the food gets done quicker than I think and you cannot turn it onto warm on your own.... you have to wait the whole cooking time on the timer......
