I bought this because I had a tiny old crockpot and needed something bigger. It has 5 options: a warm setting, 2 timed high settings and 2 timed low settings. I only wish it had an option to do high or low that wasn't timed, but luckily most recipes I've found will work with the settings it has. This 6 quart crockpot made a good roast. Yum yum.
Item received is as described. Excellent packaging and delivery time. Used it tonight as a 6 quart cooker. Makes cooking so much easier. This is the second Hamilton Beach slow cooker purchased from Overstock.com. Very satisfied with both of them. Note: Also used the 1st one purchased in cooking tonight's supper. :-)
I loved my old slowcooker, but it was so heavy to move around. And I hated the cleanup from searing meat before putting it in the cooker. This Cuisinart Multicooker is easy to move around. The searing really works and the cooker tells you when to put the meat in to brown it. The "pot" part is not ceramic, so it won't chip and crack. Plus, it is very easy to clean. My only regret is that I didn't get it any sooner. I love it!
