I will never buy another crock pot as long as these are available. I cook and slow cook in mine. Love it. it is easy to take to work and warm up food for big lunches and I cook frozen chicken over night and then can brown the outside up by turning to oven settings. Just so useful.

At first, thought I would have to return, as the timer kept going back to zero, on the High setting, and not counting down, even though everything attached properly. So, I tried it on the Low setting and it worked after that- even the High setting. I was also worried it would be too small, but it is just right. I've already made the dog and cat food in it (makes the bones soft enough to eat, in record time). Great to have for the hotter weather, no stovetop heat... Today, I am making tomato sauce with it, and even though will probably have to make two batches (because is only 6 QT), is still far less time than cooking on the stove all day long.

I purchased this for my daughter who told me she was quite pleased with the product. She has only used it a few times, but food cooked quickly and tasted good. The whole family was in the kitchen the first time she used it and they were all surprised at the amount of steam put forth when the gauge was released. This was her first expedrience with a presure cooker so she was a little taken back by the force of the steam. I think she's going to let the pot cool down on its own in the future. Other than that, all is well.

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!

I read all the reviews I could find before purchasing this and was a little nervous. I had read from some reviewers that it needed special attention, smoked too much, and/or burnt food. When you receive your "rotisserie", unpack it and place on HIGH (without lid) for 15 mins. OUTSIDE! It will smoke and smell bad while it burns off the oils and such from the packing. After that, wash the parts and the inside of the main body and it's ready to go. While cooking it will smoke slightly, but not enough to set off smoke alarms (our smoke alarms are extremely sensitive) or bother people. You can always turn on your kitchen vent if you have a problem. I sprayed the removable elements with cooking spray as instructed, so clean-up was super easy. The most important advice I can give is to ignore the recommended cooking times in the booklet. I can cook an 8 lb. chicken in 60 min. (30 min. on high, 30 min. on low), the booklet suggests that it would take twice that long. I suspect that any reviews of food burning are because of the recommended cook times, use your meat thermometer. Also don't let the meat touch the three heating elements, or those parts with burn (use butcher's twine if needed). The meat turns out browned and crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. I love this product!

I purchased this for my fiance as a Christmas gift to replace the 6qt Wolfgang Puck Pressure Cooker I had bought for him which stopped functioning after just less than a year of use. He loves the functions of this pressure cooker and we have used it many times ... pulled pork is his favorite, what normally would take 10 hours to cook, takes only 1 hr and 40 mins. in the pressure cooker. Tortellini soup is done in only 6 minutes. Butternut squash risotto in 9 minutes! It is so fast and very little clean up! We have not used the slow cooker function or the rice cooker yet ... but will continue to experiment. We have had company for all the Patriots games and have cooked several different recipres for our guests using this item, including desserts; poached pears and cherries jubilee! YUM! I HIGHLY recommend if you purchase this, you must get the cookbook called GREAT FOOD FAST by Bob Warden ... it has the BEST recipes and all the ingredients are easy to find and the recipes are very easy to follow ... it is a MUST HAVE! One of his co-workers purchased this , as well as the cookbook, after hearing about all the fabulouos food we have been enjoying! Do not hesitate, BUY THIS ONE!

This product is one of my very good investments. I specifically bought it for pot lucks at work. I can roast/cook virtually anything at work, and it is fresh out of the oven. The aroma floats all over the hospital I work at and the smells attract staff to join us. It is awesome. It cooks in half the time my kitchen oven does, and since it gets very hot here in summer, I do not have to heat up the entire house by turning on the kitchen oven to pre-cook foods I take to work. I really really really like it a lot.

This pressure cooker is awesome! I have been experimenting with it and I love it! I love Cuisinart products so I was happy to add this to my collection of Cuisinart products. I will definately reccomend this to anyone's list for pressure cooking. It comes with a recipe book. This product even has a browning feature if you want to cook chicken or other foods to brown.

I purchased this slow cooker for my daughter who was looking for one. All I could find in the store were a much smaller version. This thing is HUGE! So large that it needs to be stored on top of the cabinets as it will not fit in any of them. Cooks evenly in all 3 compartments and keeps food warm for buffet serving. Would buy another and advise others to do so.

I have used the slow-cooker feature once and it performed flawlessly. The food was cooked beautifully. I like the sturdy nonstick pot inside. My old "crockpot" was always difficult to wash because of its weight and the food stuck, but this practically rinses clean. I look forward to using the time delay feature so that food will be ready and hot when I arrive home, and I plan to cook some beans with the pressure cooker feature soon. Definitely worth the extra money over cheaper slow cookers.

Friends at work got into electric pressure cooking. I'd always been afraid of pressure cooking although I knew it was great for many things I love, like beans and stews. I finally ordered this one and it has been fantastic! My husband is so happy. He keeps telling me "I'm so glad you got this! This is amazing!" I like whole foods like beans and grains and this unit is just perfect for that. He likes pork and beef and we make delicious dishes from recipes we find on line. I highly recommend this item and pressure cooking. It has opened up a whole new world for us!!

The Fagor Cooker was exactly what we needed around the house for easier cooking and a great time saver. It actually cooks frozen items, just like the description includes, and with no problems. The flavor it produces is a great vitamin tasting cooked food! I recommend this product to all shoppers that need help in cooking and time restraints.

Very easy to use and cooks rapidly. Good Product fro the price. Cooks all the food to a moist and tender doneness.

Very good product. Only drawback is that it is oval and not round(some recipes call for round).Cooks food even cheaper cuts such as chicken thighs or legs so that it is tender and flavorful. Cookbook included in package which gives you some very good ideas if you have never slow cooked before. Very simple to use and directions are easy. Great time saver.

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.

Few kitchen appliances provide the ease and convenience of food preparation like a slow cooker. Sometimes called crock pots, slowcookers can easily cook a delicious one-pot meal for a whole family: just add the ingredients to the slow cooker early in the day; turn the appliance on; and the crockpot does the work for you. Selecting a slow cooker requires some consideration because slow cookers come in numerous sizes and offer a myriad of different features, so it's important to consider what size and features you want before buying.
