    So far so good

    I've had this slow cooker for about a month and so far I like it very much. It's easy to program and use, and works as well as any slow cooker I've ever had. I like having the option of just turning it on and using it like a more conventional crock pot. The lid locks seem like they would be nice if I wanted to take the slow cooker with me to a potluck or something, but I haven't tried this so I can't say how well that works. I also haven't tried the temperature probe, so I can't say anything about how useful (or not) that is. I can't say much about the durability because a month isn't long. So far there are no problems, and the only reason I haven't rated this higher is because I haven't owned it that long. It's kind of stupid for Best Buy to ask for a review after such a short time if they want information about the durability.

    Beware of plastic bottom

    Slow cooker worked really well while it lasted. Cermamic pot itself and lid are of fantastic quality. The problem is that the whole base bottom is made out of flimsy plastic. Additionally, the sides are made of thin aluminum. Transported cooked chili in the cooker once and noticed when cleaning that a crack underneath on the plastic had surfaced. 6 months after purchasing and light usage (maybe 8-10 uses) the bottom had completely cracked apart and the aluminum sides would no longer hold in place properly. Disappointed since we were happy with functions and other performance. I would suggest you find a cooker with less thin plastic and more sturdy outside construction.

    Bought as a gift for my wife's birthday, she likes kitchen gadgets and our daughter in-law had received one for Christmas and my wife appeared to want one as a replacement for an older basic Rival slow cooker we had for years. She used it yesterday to cook a pork roast and the unit cooked the roast in about half the time as the older Rival unit and when it reached the set internal temperature the slow cooker dropped down to warming temperature. The shorter cooking time may be due to the lid's tighter seal, where the lid on the older Rival unit did have some slight gaps that leaked more vapors. The Hamilton-Beach slow cooker does have the feature that the lid can be latched in placed to travel with the slow cooker when bringing food to a party or pot-luck get-together.

    Great Crock Pot

    This is the first crock pot I have owned, but I have used many other previously and I have to say this one is awesome! I love how easy it is to use, being able to program the temp and cook time is great also! I can set the crock pot to cook while I'm at work, once the it's finished cooking for the set time, it automatically turns itself down to warm so your food doesn't over cook or get cold. It comes with a spoon and meat thermometer. The only thing I'm not a huge fan of are, it's a little bulky with the handles sticking out and they are not collapsible. I like that the lid can be locked down, but it can be hard to get the hooks on and off of the lid. Otherwise it has been great so far! I definitely would recommend this crock pot to anyone!

    This is a wonderful slow cooker

    I love this slow cooker! it is very easy to use. Programming is simple. I like if you want you can manually set it as well. The best feature is no matter how it is cooked -via program/ manually it will turn off after a specific amount of hours. It cleans up easily. Because handles on outside make this larger than the usual slow cooker it might be difficult to store. Otherwise I think it is a wonderful slow cooker. I have used it several days in the two weeks I had it. Great for the price also!

    Unit stopped working

    I've had this product for months now and have maybe used it 5 times. The last time I tried, the cooker did not heat up. I called Hamilton customer service and they said that it's a problem with the sensor. They offer me to pay $10 to ship a replacement unit... So I buy this product that stops working and then I have to pay again to get a new one under the warranty? I don't think so, I'm going to a better brand...

    My old slow cooker that i had for over 10 years finally went kaput, so i needed a new one. They don't make them the way they used to, but this one has some great features that make up for a lot. Love the lid that clasps on & the timer function that switches to warm when i lose track of time. It is bigger than my previous, which isn't bad by itself, but odd how the lip of the insert is so wide. Also seems to cook hotter than my old one, so have to be careful when cooking in it.

    We had 1 similar to this that my wife wore out. So when I went to replace it, I couldn't find one that had all of the options that the other one had until I found this one. I could not believe that it was so hard to find a nice affordable programmable crockpot in the size she liked! Not only was this one stainless steel, it was one quart bigger than her last one and needless to say she was ecstatic about this crockpot!
