As a mom of five - I love the size of this slow cooker! Such a great value for the price! I love the lid holder / cord keeper. Super buy!
This unit arrived today. Very fast considering I only ordered it 3 days ago. Right out of the box it is exceding all my expectations. It has a very low carbon foot print using only 300 watts at high thats 400 times less then my micro wave ;-) This and it brought 8 quarts of water to a boil in 52 min. but even more impressive on low it drew 150 watts and
I could power it directly from one of my big Solar panels with 50 watts left over!! I'm so happy with
this product I highly recommend it...
This is the easiest way I know to have everything ready at the same time without being worn out. You can make the entire dinner except the salad and drink and it is all ready when you are. If you're not ready you can put it on 'keep warm' until you are. Great for when everyone in family is going a different direction. Make a big pot of spaghetti or chili or stew and put on 'keep warm' and as each gets home they can take some out and eat.
I thought this 8 Qt Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker was a great product & very spacious for the price ($34). It has (3) Settings: Keep Warm, Low, & High & if that's not enough it also comes with a lid holder which can also be used as a cord wrap for storage. It was such a great product that I purchased another. I made a 7 lb roast with all the fixings together in this 8 qt slow cooker...great meal. I always stick with Hamilton Beach because I know I'm getting a top quality product. I did the FREE "Site To Store" purchase online & it arrived within a week. Very satisfied customer :)
Very attractive and is as sturdy as it looks.
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!
great value, great crock pot, but for older people it is very heavy, it is 8 quart and was my fault i ordered the biggest not knowing how heavy, then putting food in it and cleaning it, other then so heavy, i luv it, i would go smaller.
An average crockpot in the largest size with the bare minimum features for a bare minimum price. If you're looking for bells and whistles, get out your wallet and keep looking.
Love the size, it is perfect for putting frozen foods in there in the morning!!! Love the lid rack and the cord holder! Great price!
I was looking for the largest crockpot I could find as I tend to run the food out over the edges in the smaller sizes. I love the 8 quart size, but was disappointed in the quality of the base, it feels cheap and I was worried about how well it would operate. But I have used it several times and I do love the way it cooks very evenly and thoroughly. My old crockpot was more worn out than I realized until I had used this one. So for the cost of this crockpot I would give it an average score the whole way around. Would love to find a 8 qt crock pot with a sturdier and more heavy duty base though sometime.
I bought this crockpot for its size. A crockpot is a wondeful cooking tool and we needed something larger than what you can find in the stores. I just wish they would carry this on a regular basis in the stores, but delivery was quick and I cannot complain. The crockpot works wonderfully and has a pull out ceramic inner pot is great for easy cleaning. I would recommend it in a heartbeat!
Described as 8 quarts, however, only holds, to the very brim 6.5 quarts of water. Thought I received the wrong one, however, box and packaging indicate 8 quarts as well. Never even tried it out. Very deceptive description. Will return.
My previous crockpot finally bit the dust after 10 yrs. I am very pleased with this crockpot so far and hope it llasts as long or longer than my previous one
This slow cooker holds a great amount of vegetables and meat, more than a normal slow cooker and everything comes out done and tasting great.
After looking over several models in the larger sized slow cookers and reading scads of reviews, I took a chance on this Hamilton Beach 8-qt. We have used it twice now for our Sunday evening family gatherings, and we are so pleased with this cooker! Unlike another brand that I have, this cooker's "low" setting is actually low! Most that I've had cook too hot on low, and cooking times are not as forgivable as they should be when using a slow cooker, with many foods actually getting scorched around the edges. That should not happen with a slow cooker! I also have not had the sputtering of liquids from around the lid during cooking like I have with my other cooker. Love the "warm" setting for keeping things hot for hours of continual serving without boiling or over-cooking the food. I hope it will serve us well for years and years!
I love this crockpot....i have a 4 quart that i have had for 10 years....The one i bought was a 8 quart and i love it...love the fact it has a warm setting....this is a awesome value.....
Fits my big family of 7 glad i can feed them all in one crock pot!!!
Great price, good quality. I was also pleasantly surprised when I placed my order on a Friday afternoon and had it delivered the very next day!
Have only used this crock pot twice and it certainly seems good and acts as advertised. It's certainly the largest one I've ever used. Seems a little slow to heat up but I did have a large volume in it for soup. Plan to use for a long time as I've always had good experiences with Hamilton Beach products.
I bought this slow cooker for my daughter so she could throw something in it and let it cook all
day while she was at work. She is very happy with and would recommend it to anyone.
