when I got my crock pot I was not sure about it but when I started using it. It is extra large and works great for my big family. I can cook large amount of food at one time. It is great.Read More
Love this product. It does everything that it says it will.Read More
This was a great purchase because I needed a big crockpot to cook a 7 pound pork roast in. There was enough room to put vegetables in, or for a bigger size roast, since the roast shrinks. The meat came out very tender and was delicious. This price is great for this size. I couldn't find one in stores.Read More
Firstly, I have to say, I shop on Overstock.com all the time and love it! I have purchased many things that I have loved!!! But, as far as the crockpot...I have used crockpots for years and always loved them - until this one! I used it 3 times in 2 months, which isn't very much. Crockpots should withstand a great deal of use. It seemed to cook very fast on the low setting, but i really didn't think much about it - I was planning to cook the meal overnight for a luncheon the next day. In the morning, I found that the pot was spitting the sauce out from under the lid - spaghetti sauce was all over the counter, the wall and the floor. But, that's not all! Because of the mess it made, the sauce dripped down under the crock into the heating unit. When I lifted the crock out after the party, I saw the mess it made, and began to clean it out with a soapy scrubby sponge. All of a sudden, the base of the crockpot holder came apart, exposing the wires. That should never happen. There must have been a short in the mechanism, which caused the spitting of the sauce. I will never use this dangerous appliance again, and ,I will never purchase a "no name" crockpot again!!!Read More
Works great and is big enough for a small turkey. The defrost option is nice too.Read More
This 8.5 qt slow cooker is huge. The major reason I bought this was because of its capacity. It can easily hold a 6-7 lb chuck roast, and there's enough room for a layer of vegetables (a couple of cups chopped) a layer a meat a couple inches thick, and new potatoes on top. You could cook a complete meal in this for a large group of people. This is great for parties.Read More
YES, YES, YES, I would recommend this cooker to everybody. It's the size why I ordered it from overstock. It is so much easier to cook in a larger pot than a smaller. It arrived fast, in perfect condiiton, great price and I used it right away to prepare a nice hot meal. I always use the slow cooker lining, so much easier to clean up afterwards, but the material is cooker is made of, cleaning isn't a problem anyway. I wanted to buy a heavy pot like this locally, but no store had this size available. And Overstock always has fair prices. And the cost for shipping is nothing to complain about.Read More
I've never had a crock-pot and always wanted one so i gifted this to myself for the holidays. For the price it is huge, I've seen slow cookers for 5-6 qts that go for about the same price. This thing is huge, even though it's just for myself and my husband I wanted to get something big enough to fit a whole chicken and make enough soup or stew for my entire family if need be and this fits the bill. I made lamb which cooked the whole day and came off tender and delicious and then also made a whole steamed chicken. This purchase will definitely pay itself off with the money i'm saving on my electricity bill and can I can have great food that needs to cook slowly. It heats up great, has off, high, low and defrost setting. I haven't used the defroster so I don't know about that, but everything else is great. It looks neat on top of the counter top, is EXTREMELY easy to clean, all u have to do is fill with soap and water then rinse and wash with a regular sponge like normal, doesn't matter if its cooked on grease or whatever, it just washes off. Outside just wipe with a damp cloth and its good to go. It's heavy and good quality. It does require some planning ahead to use but I love the low maintenance of having great food without sweating over a stove. Price is great for the size and quality!Read More
