    Perfect - For 2-4 persons meals, or to take to WDW

    When I factor in the sale price I paid for this + How my first dish turned out + The small size of the individual cookers - WoW! I luv it. I measured the capacity of the cooker pots - 4cups w/ some room let for couple pounds of meat. IMHO - I would not mix more that 2cups of sauce for 1 1/2lbs. of meat. The size of each cook pot is perfect for a dinner for up to 4 persons. I tested it with 4cups of 'my' sauce + 1+lbs. of pork loin. Set to 'Low' for 8 hours. Tried to take meat out it was so tender it literally shredded when I picked it up. Ended up with 'pulled pork' instead of a pork loin. (IMHO - cooked to long, will learn over time.) Tested 'power consumption' of the 'Low' and 'High' setting using a power meter: 'Low' = 75watts, 'High' = 100watts. This was true for each cooker, so, total power is how many pots you are using, and each individual setting ('Low' or 'High'). BTW - I would Never suggest this be used in any room, on any trip, to anywhere, ever. (But, a nice warm stew on a winter trip when u get back to your room is soooo good.) Wherever you stay, I am sure will provide excellent, outstanding foods, for your enjoyment. I own 2 other 'slow cookers', both larger than all 3 of these bowls combined, and use at least Twice the power on 'Low' than all 3 of these combined. This - IMHO - And from my first use - is one of the best cooking items I have ever bought. I just hope it holds up long enough for me to enjoy using it - time and time again. Lastly - Never, Ever use this in reach of a small, curious child, where they can reach it. I measured 'Low' temp and it seems to evens out about 'about' 160degrees. Not something I would want have happen to my grandkids. Use Safely and Responsibility.

    Great Unit - Horrible Company

    Posted
    TheTruth

    I bought this unit, very excited to use it during the holiday parties. I unpacked it and found that it rocked on a flat surface. I knew that I bought the last one at the store so emailed Bella Customer Service. I received a very fast reply to call them at 1-866-832-4843 and I called that day. It has now been about 22 hours since I bought the unit. The service center that was not able to help me get this unit repaired or replaced. I was told to jam something under the foot to stop the wobble or take it back, get a refund and go somewhere else to buy it. I did explain that I bought the last one at the store. I asked them what the warranty covered. It appears that Bella does not repair anything; the best you will get is a refund of some sort. Repairs or replacement parts they don’t do. So buyer beware if you buy this and anything is wrong the manufacturer will be no help.

    We bought this a few months ago, but we haven't had people over so we didn't open it. We finally had an occasion, and opened, washed and used it. I wish we hadn't waited!! We rarely cook in the large crock pot for just us, because it is simply too big. This solves that problem. Three small crock pots let us cook soups, sauces, etc. in smaller portions. It's easier to clean the small pots than the large one. I wish we had opened and tried this right away! One problem though: it is long, and doesn't fold or anything (of course) which makes storage an issue. We haven't solved it yet, but I'm sure we will soon.

    I haven't used this product to actually cook in it yet, but after I roasted and sliced the turkey breast in the oven and baked the stuffing and string bean casserole as well, I transferred the food into the triple crockpot to serve buffet style. I Also put in sweet corn pudding, sweet potato pie, and sweet and sour turkeys meatballs. Everything stayed moist and delicious long into second helpings. Family dinner guests loved the convenience. One unit would be sufficient if it wasn't thanksgiving! Love it.,

    I had seen this item a few years ago and thought it was a great idea. The price for this slow cooker was very reasonable. I used it Christmas eve for appetizers and Christmas morning brunch to keep eggs, sausages and gravy hot for serving. I preheated the units with water for 20 minutes prior to filling. Dumped the water and filled the pots. Everything stayed perfect temps even with everyone going back and forth. I am so pleased with this unit. I may buy the larger ones next. If you have a large group to feed this is perfect.

    Must Have For Gatherings!

    Great to have! I bought this so I could serve three different dishes simultaneously. Each crock pot has its own setting so I didn't have to worry about overcooking one of the dishes. I have used this multiple times; graduation party, birthday party, and family get-togethers. The holder for the lid is great because it is out of the way and you know exactly where it is! The notch in each crock pot allows for you to rest your ladle or serving fork without it sliding down. Definite buy! Worth every penny!

    This is a nice little set of three slow cookers/food warmers in one convenient housing. It's great for making up to 3 different dishes (dips, gravies, sauces, etc), and it's also ideal making a small quantity of a single dish. There should have been some kind of instructions (the picture on the box shows 3 lid holders, but I haven't figured out how to attach them yet), and a few recipes would have been nice. The best feature of this unit is that each of the 3 cooking bays has its own control switch with OFF - HIGH - LOW - WARM.

    Does not warm food

    This product is for keeping food warm ONLY. You can not take food from the refrigerator direct to this device and expect the food to be warm for your guests. The outside of the unit became extremely hot, too hot to touch, and the food inside the pots remained cold over 1 hour later. Took the food out, re-heated conventionally, and placed back in pots. The unit did keep the food warm after that but the extra step was burdensome.

    This makes life easier when you want to have several items remaining toasty warm while simmering for hours. In that way, you can be doing other things and not give this a thought. The oval-shaped ceramic bowls are a nice size, super thick, and heavy. They retain heat for hours. In fact, I bought two of these for the same reasons mentioned above.

    Used this over the weekend. Worked great but filled the crocks up a little too much. They boiled over. The aluminum heaters were difficult to clean. They now look about 10 years old. The outside has a lot of nooks and creases that are hard to get stuff out of. Otherwise it's great! Especially for the $25 I paid for it. It's probably easier to get another rather than clean it.

    This is great. On days when I am extremely busy I can put a separate food in each pot and eat throughout the day as I want too. For example, I can put taco seasoned ground beef in one pot, beans in one pot, and queso in the third. Another menu is BBQ in one pot, potatoes or corn in the second pot and cook some cornbread in the third pot. The possibilities (and convience) are a real day saver.

    We bought this to hold rice, refried beans, and black beans during a taco night we had recently and it really worked well. Definitely make sure you follow the instructions on breaking it in before the first use. It puts off quite an odor that first use and you don't want your food to taste or smell like that.

    Perfect for Holidays

    I purchased this warmer 2 years ago. The best way to have this warmer work, is to fill all of the bowls with water and start warming 2-3 hours before you fill with food. It gets the bowls warm and you also will learn the temperature differences between bowls. Works great and gives you the ability to use your oven for other dishes!!!

    Great product for serving/heating three dishes simultaneously (as long as you don’t have a large quantity of any involved). Especially came in handy during holiday entertaining, but will no doubt be useful for gatherings all year long. Nice quality product, especially for the price.

    I purchased the triple slow cooker for a graduation party. It's an allover solid product. My only real criticisms are that it's a little on the small side so I had to refill it constantly and that I wish it had a power light. I like that you can set different temps for each pot - that's a great feature.

    This triple slow cooker was a lifesaver over the holidays. I'm amazed that I was able to get it for such an awesome deal from Best Buy. I highly recommend it to anyone. It has high, low, and warm settings and even has holders for the lids of the three separate crocks.

    Wanted something to cook multiple meals for the week and this does just that. Easy to set up and use, love that the lids have a resting hook in the back. Will say that I would have liked to purchase one with automated timer but couldn't beat the price on this one and will say that it works as it should, no difficulties thus far.

    Use one, two or all three.

    This is very handy for buffet dinners or a party with hot hors d'oeuvres. The containers' volume is closer to 1 quart if you want to be able to stir without sloshing. Very handy that the 3 pots have their own controls. Use one, two or all three. No serving spoons were included, and the lid rests made me a little nervous, but worked.

    We purchased both this 1.5qt and the 2.5qt versions at the same time, and they complement each other well and will get used both separately and together for various entertaining. These seem well made. Make sure you follow the initial cleaning instructions as they do smell at first until used and then cleaned.

    Bought the larger one first but had to take it back because it was too heavy for me to lift. For some reason the smaller one didn't seem as well made as the larger one. It also did not come with any utensils like the larger one. Have not used it yet.
