this is a 7.5 quart at the most if you want it to boil over. Reasonably a 6.5 quart. The lid does not even come close to sealing, it wobbles with 1/4 in gap on the sides. I'm sending this piece of junk back if I can figure how to do it.
I was hesitant to purchase a slow cooker online, I really prefer to see and handle items like this before I buy. I'm glad I overcame my reluctance because this is a very nice unit. It uses very little electricity-our solar power pulled this easily, even on a cloudy day. I haven't tried a large variety of recipes yet, but it'll handle roast & veggies just fine. It's got a sizeable capacity and feels well built, no wobble in the knob, the lid does sit off-kilter just a touch so steam doesn't build up. The temperature is close, as far as I can tell and the outside stays reasonably cool, I could touch the sides and lid comfortably, the actual crock is the only point you wouldn't want to linger. I would certainly recommend this product to anyone looking for a new slow cooker
This slow cooker was just what I was wanting. The stainless steel fits right in with the rest of the kitchen. It's the largest slow cooker I could find. Will be perfect for company measl. The only thing that would have made this excellect would have been lid locks. This would have made transporting easier.
