I love this product!!! I use it all the time and have had it now for more than 4 months and it works wonderfully!!!. Anyone looking for a nice size slow cooker should purchase this item. Good size, larger than the ones you would normally buy in the store.
This was the largest slow cooler that I found anywhere. It worked perfectly to cook a pot roast. It's not digital but I wasn't looking for that. I wanted a simple, large capacity slow cooler and this fit the bill.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly as depicted
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I thought the lid wasn't a good fit but after researching found that they are made that way on purpose.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Exactly as described
I used this Slow Cooker immediately and was so very pleased with the size and the ability with which I could use more ingredients in my homemade stew without a boil over mess to clean up afterwards. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who enjoys mixing many flavors and who might be considering freezing left overs for future meals if desired.
I've not yet tried it on large portions of roast, but I sincerely expect the same success.
I purchased this for a Christmas gift, however, I did not examine the item prior to giving it to the person I purchased it for. When she unpacked the slow cooker it was damaged, however, because there wasn't any sign of damage to the box it came in my conclusion is that it came that way from the manufacture. The product was never used, but it was extremely light weight. I have a slow cooker in a much smaller size & it definitely weighs more then this one. It just was, in my opinion, very poor quality.,
This is a great product for those that cook for a crowd, as I do that is why I selected the 8.5 quart. The only thing I dislike is after using it a few times the applique around the knob to select high or low temperature cooking melted. Calling the manufacturer was a pain they wanted copy of sales receipt to get a simple replacement part. Other than that it works great I have cooked pot roasts, Cajun Crab boil ribs, pork butts, fajitas both steak and chicken, roasted chicken, barbecue brisket, soups. Sometimes I prepare the meal the evening before and put the crock into the refrigerator, then in the morning slip the crock into the cooker and set it and forget it until I get home.
This crock pot looks great, is a great size. I used it twice. The first time it worked like a charm. The second time I cam home to a raw meal. It just quit working. Sorry to say this because overall I loved it. I have sent it back for a refund. I would have kept it, of course, had it worked appropriately.
What are the dimensions of the inside crock? It looks like it is the same oval shape as a 7quart but deeper (?)cropperjoan on Dec 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
