I am pleased with this large crockpot...if there were one feature that could be improved it is the temperature of the external sides while cooking. A parent would be advised to keep this one out of reach while it is on.Overall I would recommend it.
I bought this because I cook for big crowds sometimes. I used it to make stew last week and it really worked great. I fed 12 people and still had a couple of bowls left over. My daughter-in-law saw it and told her kids she wanted one for Christmas !!! It cleans up easy and is easy to use.
I have been looking for a large slow cooker and found this one. It does a good job. The only thing is the picture shows 4 settings, auto, high, medium, low. The one I received has auto, high and low. I am disappointed with that. But over all, this is what I was looking for. with a family small cookers just don't fit. Word of caution the outside of the cooker gets HOT do not touch!
My favorite crockpot of 15 yrs finally gave out so I hoped this new one would do the trick esp when I make a big batch of posole. I have used it 3 times and it has been great! Posole cooked overnight in Low setting, and another time I tried it on High during the day. Each time the food was tasty and tender and moist. I plan to try other dishes and am optimistic of the outcome. The crockpot is very attractive and has been easy to clean. One comment, the juices from posole did drip into the outside pot and burned a bit but it was not difficult to clean. Hope it lasts a long time!
I am Very pleased with this slow cooker. I was able to cook 10 lbs of chicken in it. It cooks evenly. It cleans up easily. It goes nicely in my kitchen. I have used it a couple time now. It has a see through lid so I can see in and not have to open it,except to stir occasionally. Very nice.
Bought this as a gift for sister who has a large family. Seems to work perfectly - however, I am surprised with how hot the outside gets...? Not what I expected based on my experience with other similar products that are totally cool to the touch on the exterior.
I got this Cooker to alternate with another one to make dog food. It will take 6-7 pounds of frozen chicken breasts and cook them perfectly in 5 hours, then cook the added rice on high in another 1 and 1/2. It's a great cooker at a great price.
