OMG Best slow cooker/crock pot in the World!
I got it fast and started useing it the first night. No matter what I put in it, it always comes out excellent! I literally put food in it, frozen or completely thawed, and it's always amazing! I don't need to check on it, stir it...nothing! Perfectly cooked food every time! I can't believe how much easier this is for me. I have fibromyalgia and MS, so I hurt a lot, and to throw stuff into ONE thing and let it cook for me-Amazing! I've made, chili, chicken and stuffing, shredded beef empanadas, apple crisp, overnight French toast with blue berries. All came out perfect! I'm going to make bread in it next, then for the holidays I'm planning on making chocolate candy! I can't wait!
Great crock pot
I bought this crock pot because I loved the meat thermometer feature. I love the many options you have for cooking with this appliance. Despite other reviews, I have cooked on low and high, by temp and by time. I love, love, love this crock pot! It looks great and performs just as well. I have other crock pots (I entertain a lot) but this is by far my favorite of all of them. I love having more than one because for big gatherings, they come in handy. You can keep things warm in them and all the food is ready at the same time without being over cooked!
Finally, a slowccoker that works
Tried roasting a chicken (large roasting chicken) and was pleased and surprised that it turned out perfect. Note: I am not that good of a cook, just okay. Easy to set and accurate. Loved that it kept dinner warm and did not overcook. Temp. probe is great. I researched slow cookers before I decided. Made the right choice. I went on several recipe sights and have found so many useful tips. best was for the chicken--place balls of foil underneath and it keeps it above juices. Tomorrow=lasagna recipe I found. Love this product.
even if you can't cook, you will with this
the only thing I recommend is when you buy kits or packaged meals(pork roast) season your self unless you like spicy then you'll be fine... as far as a cooker it is what is says it is... set and forget, follow instructions and you will have a meal. while your meal is winding down, cook your rice or pasta,,, but I have been reading that you can add rice or pasta the last 30 min and you will have every thing... have yet to try but can't wait
Have used it 2-3 times a week since I got it. Love that you can program it, or use temperature probe and it will switch to warm. The only problem I had was when I was cooking smaller portion recipe and the probe did not go into the crock quite as far as I would have liked. I like the way the lid secures on for transport. I would really recommend this for folks who have to be gone while the food is cooking.
Ive had an old ugly retro yellow manual slow cooker like forever, and since its my birthday I splurged on this little high tech marvel, and I LOVE IT. Its got it all, manual, programmable, and an alien probe that works wonderfully! The screen is very easy to read and the manual is very straightforward with step by step illustrations. And it has the lock down handles for hauling it to granma's house in the woods! And what a great price and ship to home was so easy! No problems, no issues, no hassles! If only life were this convenient and trouble free!
I like all the different settings, especially how it goes to warm after the time setting is finished. My old one only had high, low and warm. I like the meat probe for all the meats. I put a butt roast in that was not completely thawed but it was fine and delicious. I would recommend this and the price is reasonable.
Great Slow Cooker
I cooked a pork roast using the probe option. The internal temperature of the roast didn't change for over two hours which at first worried me, but slowly after the initial time it started to raise up. The crock inside seemed smaller than my old 6 qt crock pot. The roast was a 6 lb which filled the crock and left no room to cook the vegetables which ended up in the oven. I do like the options to cook by time, manually, and with the probe. It has a clean, slick look about it with the stainless steel and its alternation from cook time to temperature is helpful. The crock is solid and easy to clean and the lock down lid is a good on the go option.
The best crock pot ever! I love being able to put food in it and set the timer and temp and then go to work and not worry about it. It's an awesome thing. The new handles are easy to flip. Very nice. I had one just like it but it fell off the counter and broke. Walmart is $30 cheaper on these than every where else.
