This is a great size. I have a family of 3 and this cooks more than enough for us. I was specifically looking for a slow cooker that wouldnt take alot of counter space but would be able to cook plenty of food. This was spot on. Love the feature of the air tight clasps, perfect for being able to take it to a potluck, etc. The only con i found with this product is that it has only 3 pegs/legs (2 in the front, 1 in the back) rather than 4. As a consumer I would personally prefer that it has 4 (2 in the back, 2 in the front) just to ensure added stability. Other than that 1 thing, I definitely would recommend.
