    Quality and beauty combined

    This slow cooker is beautiful, practical and cooks evenly. And most importantly perfect for making dishes to go. The locking lid makes travel stress free. The size is perfect for most casseroles i.e.green bean casseroles, or baked chicken dishes, and the cookbook that comes with it explains how. The inset dish is heavy but the lightweight durable frame makes it easy to lift and carry. Also when traveling the extra weight helps to keep it from shifting. You can also use the inset dish to bake in the oven, like a sweet potato casserole, then transport with the frame and locking lid , and once you have reached your destination you can plug it in and reheat on warm if needed - saving your hostess' oven for her entrees and sides. If making soups or chili the shape is not conducive - deep round would be better but for the holiday bake and take this is superb! Well worth the money and easy clean up! I would have give it 5 stars if the inset was not as heavy and it was suitable for soups and stews. But other than that, it is a five star product.

    Not the largest, but large enough

    What a coincidence that you ask for my review when I first turned on this unit at 2 am yesterday. I followed certain directions that I found to slow cook a basic recipe of a small roast for eight hours before adding potatoes and onions at the fifth hour or so. Now that my confidence in the process is now established, I am researching other recipes and dishes to expand my talents and to be better prepared as to what to shop for during my next visit at the grocery store. Take heed to the quick setup directions to read ALL directions before using. There are a couple of minor, but necessary, caveats to be aware of when using this appliance. The low and high settings alleviates the guesswork of temperature settings on a conventional oven even though this appliance does not seem large enough to accommodate a regular sized Holiday turkey.

    Crock-Pot. The Best.

    I made homemade lasagna using my oven recipe. There was too much liquid and the end product was loose. I made it again and drained the canned tomatoes. The end product was firm, moist and very good. The low cooking temperatures allow the flavors to develop much better than oven cooking. The removable ceramic crock and the lid go in the dishwasher, The cord is wrapped around posts on the back of the heating unit. Crock-Pot hit a home run with this product.

    Have had many Crock-Pots over the years. But this one works the best for the holidays. Use this last Christmas for keeping food warm. Really helped in keeping everything hot at the same time. Also have used it to cook meals, and it really did a great job. Only caution is the seals around the edges of the lid did crack in one spot in less than a uear.

    I had been looking at this for a while and finally decided to goet one for myself and both my daughter in laws. Well, it was a HUGE hit! We ALL used them at Thanksgiving for various things.... Corn Casseroll, Cuban Tamales, and Stuffing. Worked great on everything! All the relatives were checking them out and the consensus was FINALLY a wide rather than deep crockpot! Great for casserolls, meat entrees, and lasagna. Thank you Crockpot!!!

    Retiree's and Average Chef's Must Have

    I do not know how I got along without this. The main lesson in cooking meats, especially tougher beef and pork, is to decide whether to cook slow (8-10 hours) on low or cook fast (4-6 hours) on high. I like the former, but the online recipes will assist in recommending which is optimal for whatever the project is. This is a must have for every kitchen. Actually, the online sales price caught my attention on this item.

    I have loved using this crockpot, I love that it is smaller than the old one I had so I can make smaller meals when needed, I did find however that I have to cook food longer in this crock pot than I did with the standard one that I have. Thats not a big deal as long as I plan for the extra time. I can put the food in the pot in the morning and by the time I get home from work it is done.

    It's a casserole slow cooker

    I bought this slow cooker thinking it would replace my 10 year old JC Penney Cooks rectangular slow cooker (which was great and no longer made). When I received it, I realized it would not fit a whole chicken roaster like the Cooks. My fault for not paying attention to the dimension measurements but I wish someone would make a big rectangular slow cooker. I ended up returning it.

    I got this because of it's shape. I can fit a lot more in this model. Example....longer cuts of meat, a whole fish etc. I even made a banana bread in it! Bonus you can carry it with you to another location as is because of its clamp style cover!!! Think thanksgiving at someone else's house and you arriving with the (insert what you made here) still warm and in a decorated container .

    I've only cooked once in my crockpot, however my chicken turned out delicious. It did cook faster than I expected and I will know next time to cook a little slower. Although, my meal turned out tender and juicy. It's great for two people to cook a casserole or just a meat item. I will enjoy cooking in this crockpot for a long time.

    I have never owned one before and this is a new and gratifying cooking experience. Except for simple recipes that will permit shorter cooking time, I try to cook as long as possible: 8-10 hours. I use it each week and cooked pork roast just last week. Cannot do without it now.

    Love it, Love it, Love it! I bought this as a Best Buy deal-of-the-day because I figured that some of the items I had a hard time cooking in my other crock pots would fit better in this. I used the very next day, and it met my every expectation. I now have a collection of six crock pots that fit all my slow-cooking needs.

    I had been wanting this for sometime. Decided since I was having a crowd for the Holidays , I would purchase. Works great for casserole and for keeping ham good for guests. I actually had a guest ask to borrow since she was not able to make it to the store to purchase. She plans to purchase after the Holidays.

    Bought it for my daughter and she loves it!!! She gets dinner started in the morning and by the time my son in law gets home from work, the house smells good and dinner is ready. The children love it because it makes the meat SO tender!

    Pretty standard as far as Crock-pot functionality; standard equals basic. Analog functions and no timer, which is no problem for me. This item really shines if you have to take it in for a party. Just the right size for potatoes and other items that do not work for standard "pot" style crock pots.

    I did not give a 5 star due to the base unit being "lightweight" and the lid not sealing completely, but overall the unit is what I was wanting. Have used it a couple of times in the past month since receiving it and would suggest purchasing if this is the style, size and need. I have liked mine.

    I got this for tailgating and carrying hot messy food. The rectangular shape is great for meatballs, chicken wings, things that don't need to be crowded. I was waiting for locks so that traveling with food would be easy. Wonderful design and great locks.

    I never heard of this great kitchen must have until I was shopping at Best Buy. Without any research or info, I went on a whim and bought it. I've not regretted it once, we use it at least twice a week. We LOVE casseroles and this makes them perfectly every time!!

    Works extremely well. The only issue was me, LOL. The temperature control is set up with high in the middle instead of the far right. It took a few times to remember that. Again just an issue with my memory

    I have the large round crockpot but needed something more elongated for some recipes that I wanted to try. This is perfect if you need a baking dish size and shape. It works properly and is easy to clean up. I will probably end up using it more than the round style.
