This is the 3rd slow cooker/crockpot I’ve owned and is by far, the best. The two main reasons are it’s shape and the easy locking lid. The others have been round rather than oval like this model. The oval shape accommodates a more varied number of foods, such as a pot roast, brisket or whole chicken. The lids on older round slow cookers were made of very heavy tempered glass, held in glass by gravity: imminently not portable! The lid on this model is much lighter and is held in place with easily applied clips that press the lid’s attached gasket effectively in place. This design, combined with the clips prevents heat loss, allowing faster, more efficient cooking and the thinner glass lid gives greater visibility to the contents. The shape of the appliance also allows greater portability. I anticipate not dropping this one and even if I do, it seems like it won’t be a a catastrophic event!
I was concerned about the fit because I had a problem with the glass bowl that came with the mixer. It actually fits better than the glass bowl so I am pleased.
