I know... you're not supposed to give kitchen appliances for a Christmas Gift, but we really wanted a large slow cooker! This one is the perfect size for our family of two adults and three children ranging in age from 6 - 12. The day after Christmas we made a 4.5# roast with all the trimmings - quartered potatoes, carrots, onion, and celery - and there was no spilling overflow!! We probably could have made a one pound larger roast.
There are two flaws we noticed: 1.) The lid does not sit firmly on the crock. When we placed the lid on the counter, we noticed a slight warp. We also flipped the crock upside down on the counter and found a slight warp to it too. Not a big deal to us, but some picky consumer may find it unacceptable. 2.) The handy "mess-free" lid-rest is a little awkward to use, and it sits into the crock some, possibly making a slight mess if you fill the crock to the brim like we do; and to "spin" it around from the "cord wrap feature" you have to take it off the pot and reattach it right-side up. The plastic knob to attach it seems a little cheap.
Overall, because of the size, this is an awesome slow cooker!! We are excited to use it! The same brand and model sell for significantly more money on other on-line sites. Thus - Great Value here!
