I bought this slow cooker for my girlfriend because she wanted a big slow cooker and this was the biggest one I could find. The cooker works good for large meals. I feel like it is a low quality product. I don't really know anything about slow cookers, but I'm not an idiot either.
There is no warm or serve setting just, low, high and auto. The low setting still cooks to a boil. The outside of the cooker is metal and gets VERY VERY hot. Just touching the outside will burn you. When my girlfriend tried to move it, her hand slipped and touched the side and it gave her a pretty good burn. If you are looking for a big semi-slow cooker this could be the one. I wouldn't leave this unattended especially around children.
If i had to do this all over again I would have gone with a better quality 7 or 7.5 quart. quality over quantity.
This crockpot cooks very,very HOT, even on the lowest setting. A pot roast that was supposed to slow cook for 8 hours was over-done in 3 hours, and the exterior of the pot got so hot it burned my hand. I don't know if the controls are defective, or, if it is just a poor quality. I'll not buy an "off brand" again.

This has been a great crockpot for our large family. I was specifically looking for something holding 8 + quarts and this fit the bill perfectly. Other than its wonderfully large capacity I love the Auto setting. Now I no longer have to remember to turn the crockpot on High and then down to Low a few hours later because the Auto setting does it for me. I do wish that the outside of the crockpot did not get so hot to the touch but something I can deal with for the size and inexpensive price of this model.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The outer casing seems as though it may dent easily and the knob seems a liitle cheap but overall good quality

So excited to use this. First time cooking in it I went to grab the handle and touched the side and burned my hand really bad. The entire crock pot heats up it actually melted the face off it's self. Do not recommend.

The item arrived in a standard well packed box. It was given as a gift and my mother was thrilled with it until she used it. The outside got EXTREMELY hot. The entire Elite sticker with heat settings peeled off after 1/2 hour of cooking. We tried to move the crockpot to see if there was something going on that we missed (there was not!) and the outside handle burnt my moms hand badly causing a huge blister. Item was returned for a new crockpot with customer service classifying the crockpot I received as 'defective'. Be very careful if you're thinking of purchasing, handle with extreme care & do not touch for any reason.
