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.
Purchased the Cuisinart 4-in-1 cooker after a disaster with the lid of my old oval Rival Crock-Pot. So far have done BBQ ribs (slow cooker), roast chicken (slow cooker recipe), Pork Button Ribs with garlic, peppers, and black bean sauce (browning and stir frying), and the most amazing corned beef brisket we've ever eaten. Love that you can switch back and forth between cooking functions and temperatures while in operation. Cleanup is an absolute breeze. Good capacity (cooked 2 packaged corned beef briskets at once with plenty of room). It is worth noting that when "slow cooking", the "simmer" setting is closest to the "low" setting on a regular crock-pot (I actually thought "simmer" would be higher than "low", but not so). Looks great on the counter, and is living there (our old crock-pot stayed out of sight when not being used). Got it on sale and don't regret my purchase for an instant - fabulous buy! My only issue with this cooker is that there is no "delay timer", which should have been easy to include since this is a feature of bread machines and many rice cookers. Before buying, I saw a review on topreviews.best, there you can see all pros and cons. But as for my, the main pros are: No stick, easy to clean, insert is lightweight as opposed to a heavy "crock" insert, high quality, stain resistant, attractive design. Cons: None, really, other than lack of "delay start" function.
I got this when it was on sale. Shipping was only $2.95. I bought this one to replace my old and ugly white slow cooker. Loved the look and simplicity of this slow cooker. The removable pot is huge. I love the size. Highly recommended for looks, functionality, and price...thanks again!
I bought this just before the holidays, because it was on sale, Hamilton Beach is good quality. I love it because is light and easy to use. Have used it 3 times and I am very happy I made this choice.
