I am disabled and my cheap crockpot quit working after too much use, I guess. This new Crockpot from Overstock was the best kitchen purchase I have ever made. I use it almost every day and it does just what it promised. If my husband is late coming home from work it continues to keep food warm for up to 6 hours. I cannot wait to start making winter soups in it. There were some great recipes that came with it and I cannot wait to try them.I would recommend this to anyone who works, or anyone who doesn't mind leftovers the next day.
Bought this slow cooker for the holidays. Had smaller models in the past but I really love this size far better. Easy clean up with crock removal. Ran it through my dishwasher. Love the digital set up feature. Wish I had brought it sooner. Looking forward to lots of stress free meals this fall and winter.

I have only used it once. I got it because of the timer. Once the cooking time is finished it keeps your food warm for up to SIX hours. With the old crock pot I had if I got tied up at work the food was MUSH by the time I got home. This is excellent. It has 3 settings, high, medium and low, instead of the usual 2. I love crock pot cooking. I work in one state and live in another so this is perfect for me.

I was really excited about this purchase and couldn't wait to receive it. It does look exactly as pictured; however, it is very lightweight and the outside has already stained after only two uses. It is not stainless steel but some other faux stainless steel finish. I do like the fact that the actual cooking vessel is removable and it is a nice weight. I am disappointed in the actual cooking process also. I previously had a small 2 qt. crockpot that I used for many years and finally wore out and had to throw away so was looking forward to the larger size. Well, the cooking time is extremely slow..much slower than it should be even for a slow cooker..remember I have cooked in crockpots for many years. I do like the digital aspect of it but all in all I am disappointed. I wouldn't recommend this product.
I purchased the large and smaller version of this crock pot and love them both. They go great with my REFUB electric tea kettle I purchased on Overstock as they all stainless steel and match everything in my kitchen.The crock pots are SIMPLE to use - completely idiot proof and are simply beautiful to look at. They both heat up quickly and cook everything I put into them very well.Narina is the brand although it doesn't say it on the site.
I love cooking, but I don't really have lots of time for it. I love this stainless steel cooker. It saves me a lot of time and effort. The stainless stain appearance goes very well with my other stainless steel appliances in my kitchen. Perfect for me!
I Love the large size, I was able to cook two medium chickens at the same time. That is Great!!!, when planning for a party. And the fact that it automatically kicks down to warm, allows me not to worry if I am busy doing other things. Love It!!

Works great. I really wanted a crock pot with a digital timer. I work 12 hr shifts and like that this cooker turns to WARM after the desired cook time has completed. If I do not make it home in time, eventually it will time off. NO more overcooked meals.
I am very impressed with this cooker. It is my first programmable crockpot; the instructions were very clear and uncomplicated. Was able to set without difficulty on my first try. The display is uncluttered and well-lit. Excellent even heat and I love the warming feature. All parts seem of high quality and durability. I have used it four times so far with no issues. Crock is easy to clean; exterior wipes clean. I am looking forward to many good years of service. I recommend it!

Very pleased with this purchase. Package arrived quickly and product was exactly as described. Have only used it once since purchase, but it was a great experience. The timer worked out great and continued to keep the food warm until we got home. Worry free cooking!!

I was excited when I read the reviews that this was going to be a good slow cooker. The price was also great! When I received the cooker I felt that it was cheap. The stainless steel exterior felt flimsy and that it could dent very easily. I plugged it in to test it to make sure it worked and sure enough it didn't. The button was stuck on high cook only, and you could not set the cook time. I tried many times and read the directions to make sure I was doing it right and it did not work. Overstock's customer service was great however. I received a pre-paid label to ship it back, and was refunded quickly.

It's the type I had before and have been looking for a new one. I'm so glad I found this. You can choose the amount of time to cook by 1/2 hour increments as well as choose the heat settings.

I love this cooker! I'm no gourmet cook, but the things that I have tried, have come out very well. The only downside is cleaning the pot. It truly is big/heavy and somewhat cumbersome to handle. I've read where others spray the inside or line it with foil. I have tried neither, but I may try spraying it or coating it with a film of olive oil. I've cooked a seven pound chicken in it and it fell off the bones. There was still room for a few potatoes! If you need to cook large amounts at one time, this is a wise purchase. It was very easy to learn to use.
