If you're looking for a good, large crock pot I don't think you could go wrong with this one. I've had good success with it and it is easy to clean with the removable ceramic container.
I'll just list the quirks right off the bat: 1. For a cooker that is designed to travel, I would have thought there would be a place to store the cord, or a wrap-up strap or something. I improvised my own by attaching one of those velcro cable/cord wraps. 2. Did you know that in the owner's manual it cautions not to fill beyond 5 quarts full? Grr...since I was looking for a larger-sized crock pot, I would have held out for the largest had I known that. As it is, I have, in fact, filled this pot to the brim w/soup & had no problems. I think it's mainly a caution for safety/burns. 3. Very minor complaint: since this is an oval pot with an oval lid & very tight rubber gasket, sometimes it takes several attempts to replace the lid properly. Maybe they could have made some "line-up" indicators? (Or maybe I just rush too much!) After dealing with my persnickety 10 year old Rival crockpot for years, this thing really COOKS! I had to adjust some of the times when I switched some recipes into this pot; things were getting overdone when I left them in for the same time on "high." I also like that no matter what setting, there is a red light to indicate that it is, in fact, plugged in and "on." No more dinnertime catastrophes ("Ack! I set it on "high" but the plug got bumped!")--it's clear that it's on or off. Over the holidays I transported some mulled cider to a party. Not a drop was spilled or leaked on the way, even though there was quite a bit of "sloshing around," even splashing against the steam holes. I'm very happy with my choice.
it is the neatest idea to have the seal around the lid, we have already taken it on the go and we encountered no problems with it spilling, I love that it came with its own spoon too....it is just a great crockpot and the best part was the affordable price
I am involved in an organization that has football "tailgate" parties each week in their lounge to root on our favorite football team. Because of this I have had many accidents transporting food to these events. This product is an absolute MUST for transported foods. I have used it already and cannot even think of doing without it now. The first event, I had several other people asking me where to get one.
This is everything you'll need in a slowcooker. Pulled pork is a start! YUM!
I used this for our departmental Christmas lunch. It was easy to carry and held a large amount of food. As with any slow cooker, it takes a couple of hours to get heated up good, especially one this large, so that was expected. The lift-out crockery means I can now soak that to clean it, and the carry handles are a welcome feature. My favorite feature is the sealing lid with locks. I can now bring the cooker to the event already filled with food and lock the lid. No spills and no food smells inside my vehicle! This slow cooker has a warm setting which none of my previous ones had, so that is great for buffet service, so your dish can be kept warm until the last person has been through the buffet line. This thing is awesome, and the stainless exterior is very nice, too. This one is a winner!!!!
After buying and using the product, I immediately bought another one. They are the best electric applicance I've bought for the price. They are beautiful and functional. I love the simplicity and full functionality of the product. I plan to use them as warmers for the holidays.
Great Slow Cooker. I had been looking to replace my 30 yr old slow cooker that died. I tried a purchased and returned a $300 slow cooker from William Sonoma. This slow cooker was $250 cheaper and far superior. I have cooked pot roast, ribs, chili and vegetable stew all turned out wonderfully. It is easy to clean, just remove the ceramic crock pot and put it in the dishwasher. It is easy to transport (the lid locks in place). I am not enamoured with the cheap plastic spoon, but hey one doesn't have to use the spoon. The appearance is sleek and modern.
I would definitely purchase this again.
It may become my first choice for wedding gifts.
This crock pot is really wonderful. I love the feature of the locking lid. The only bad part of this is the plastic spoon that came with it. It isn't a very strong plastic and I wouldn't recommend using it for anything other than soup. Other than that, this is a great product and I would definitely recommend it to others.
I purchased this to replace a crockpot I had for 15 years (the old tall type). I LOVE it. It's wonderful for baking potatoes and I use it often to carry food to school where I work. Would highly recommend.
This is a sharp looking kitchen appliance. It has a brushed mirror finish and is just stylish. I gave it only one 4 because it is not as big as the one I'm replacing. My fault, can't imagine what 6 qts looks like and didn't know the size of the old one...just big.
It has an off, high, low, and warm setting. No medium, which I thought odd. But it does heat up nice and quickly and then you can put it on low...that does the trick. I like the "warm" feature as we are a family that eats when they get hungry instead of watching the clock! So far I've cooked a corn beef brisket and a chuck roast in it and was very pleased with the outcome.
OK, i've just used it once so far as this is August. It was a beef stew which was just so-so, but really think it was the recipe, not the cooker.
The cooker is very attractive stainless steel (matches all my kitchen appliances) and is super easy to use, with just a few simple settings.
Looking forward to using it A LOT this winter instead of buying those overly salty, bland canned soups!
I guess nothing will be as good as my last cooker. With that said it is okay I guess. I am not crazy about the way the lid does not really fit the crock so is always slightly uncovered unless you lock it down. I am also disappointed in the amount it actually holds or should I say, doesn't hold. This was supposed to be a 6 quart but it is only a five quart unless you fill it to the rim and some spills over. Even at the 5 quart it is very full not leaving room to stir very well. It cooks very well and I use mine all the time. I just really need one that holds more than 5 quarts. I must wonder who measured this crock!
got it for a christmas gift last year.. we love this product - the only downside was our child put the lid in the dishwasher and it warped the seal therefore we can't take it anywhere without the contents spilling out.
A friend of ours brought over a dish to share at a BBQ function we were having. Our friends had prepared a bean dish in a Hamilton Beach slow cooker and had also used a liner inside to keep the cooker clean.
Transportation of the slow cooker and contents was easy and super clean due to the sealable lid, and since it also had a serving laddle attached to the lid, nothing else was needed. Super product!! I just had to get one. As usual Wal-Mart had the best price!
This slow cooker does a great job. I have been very pleased with the way it cooks and looks. I love the way it cooks, the keep warm setting and the carrying handle with the spoon. I highly recommend this slow cooker.
I absolutely love this crock pot. The temperatures are accurate, low/high, and it is very easy to clean. Transporting food is not a problem now that I can snap the lid shut.
This slow cooker is amazing! Every meal I make in it turns out amazing and the secure lid is awesome for taking it on the go! I use it weekly!!
love it,so I sent another one to my sister-inlaw.
makes mealtime so easy for me.
I am really pleased by the portability of this appliance. It'll be great when I'm preparing something to take elsewhere, as the lid fastens down securely.
I also like the rubber seal around the top that prevents heat from escaping. The Low setting is really low, unlike other pots I've had.
