This crock pot is wonderful. I have bad luck with past crock pots cooking too hot on the low setting, and I could never follow the recipe cook times--I usually had to shave some time off to avoid over-cooking. That is not the case with this cooker, it cooks beautifully, and automatically switches to warm. My husband and I leave early in the morning, and get home in the early evening, and this cooker takes away all the stress of dinner. We are both very pleased!
This Digital 6-quart Stainless Steel Slow Cooker is my very first one! I'm 53 years old and I find myself looking to make the most of my life. The Digital 6-quart Stainless Steel Slow Cooker helps me achieve just that! I prepare meals in the Digital 6-quart Stainless Steel Slow Cooker and set the timer, put on the lid and by dinner time, we have a delicioius meal with the most tender meat or poultry. I have even made spare ribs that literally fell apart~ I don't spend the day rushing around to get things done so I can make dinner, now I enjoy my day knowing the Digital 6-quart Stainless Steel Slow Cooker is doing the work so I may make the most of my day~
I gave this as a gift to my daughter and she tells me every time I talk to her how much she is enjoying it. She doesn't get home from work until after 7 pm and she loves coming in the front door and smelling the aroma of dinner waiting for her. She has used it 2-4 times a week for a month now and has nothing but good words to describe it.
Speed kills, so it is important you take the time to do it right. This product can achieve this goal. Just turn it on and instantanteously you are ready to do it slowly. The touch buttons give you fast control to go slow, which is a real bonus. So if you need the quickest way to get there slowly, this is for you. Handling is good in the dry and wet and all weather conditions, built for all seasons.
I bought this for my son and soon to be daughter-in-law. They both work and asked for a slow cooker with certain features including a "hold" that would keep things warm after cooking until they got home from work. This one has the other features they asked for, too, such as stainless steel exterior and digital LED. The price was affordable and I trust Overstock to honor their return policy if the kids find they would rather have a different one.
This was a very good purchase for me. Arrived quickly once shipped. I probably could have found a similar one for a little cheaper but for 6 quarts this is great. the stonewear is removeable for easy cleaning which is great and once the cooking is done the crockpot stays on warm for up to 6 hours. I am having a little trouble with the cooking aspect...this may be due to me, the size of my meals or the new-ness of the crockpot. My dishes were getting over cooked and dry. I remedied this by putting aluminium foil over the crockpot then covering that with the lid. The problem may also be due to the size of the crock pot. If cooking for 2 people a 5 quart or even smaller would do, unless you always cook enough for a ton of leftovers! Overall I am very happy.
i am VERY pleased with this crock pot. i absolutely needed another one as our last one (not the same thing) cracked and had to be thrown out. i was so glad when we ordered this . it came very quickly (as always from overstock). have made a few things in it (haven't had it that long yet). and i am very pleased with the results. i like the fact that you can cook something in it, then it goes into this 6-hour warm mode, then it shuts off. so if you time things just right, you will have a nice warm/hot dinner when you walk in the house in the evening. the quality is very nice. it's easy to operate. great product.
Although I will not personally use this item (crock pot). I ordered it and it arrived at my son's home in fewer than 5 days. He opened it and is very pleased with the appearance, and will cook in it and let me know. I, on the other hand, bought a Crock Pot for my own home at about half the price of this one, and it's a Versa Ware that can be used to saute' food before starting the simmer/cooking process in the conventional crock pot manner. I haven't used it yet, but it sound promising and is "something new"..
I have had this slow cooker going on 1 month now. I just threw the box out. It is working great. I have no problems to date. So far I love it and use it once or twice a week. The temperature is low enough that I am not burning everything. Love it.
