    Not entirely pleased

    The size is the best quality about the cooker. It gets very hot. High the food is boiling. Low still cooks faster than expected. The outside does get pretty hot. However my biggest complaint is the surface is hard to clean. I've used it twice and it has a water line around it from the last use that will not scrub off. When it's wet it looks like it's gone but when it dries there is a white line. It makes me sad bc I absolutely love the size! It has bumped down my list to an occasional use item instead of weekly simply for the fact it's so hard to clean . I still haven't gotten that ring off after 4 attempts

    This slow cooker replaces a 5 qt one that we had had for nearly 20 years. That one still worked, but some of the control knobs had broken off and it was no longer large enough. It is so nice to have the extra space! I like to cook roasts in the slow cooker, and this 8 qt size is much better for not having to cut the roast in pieces in order to fit it into the pot. The timer function in conjunction with warming is perfect.for those times when we are out all day. We even cooked four Cornish game hens in this pot when another couple came over for dinner, and they turned out perfectly. I am happy with this purchase!

    This is the first crockpot I purchased. First thing I loved about this, is it’s capacity. I could’ve gone for a smaller size but I figured an 8 qt crockpot would come in handy for parties/large dinners. The controls/buttons are easy to use and straightforward. I’ve used it for pulled Tri-Tip recently and was extremely happy with the results. I was short on time and cooked the meat on high for a shorter time period, and it still tasted as if I had been cooking it all day. I do sear both sides on a skillet before placing it in the crockpot with beef broth.

    Best Crock-Pot ever

    I had to replace an old Crock-Pot that finally gave up. I visited the store and saw a shelf model and was impressed on it’s capacity. It was delivered a couple days later and in use that very day. It attained temperature quickly and maintained the proper amount of heat throughout the process. The large crockery allowed two roasts without having to cut them up to fit. The digital timer was easy to read and use. I’d get this one again in a heartbeat!

    NOT A CROCK POT.

    We bought this so that we could make things in a slow cooker while at work or sleeping. I would not trust this unit to leave it on for any amount of time unattended. The outside gets extremely hot and the thing that you find out after you get it home is, the only reason it is called a "slow cooker " is because it slowly gets all the way up to HIGH, then it just boils from there on. Took it back for a refund.

    I needed to replace my old crockpot which still works but is, old. This model is larger and holds much more than my old one. It did well cooking corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's Day and turkey soup (with a whole turkey carcass). I used all temp settings and as others have mentioned, it still gets pretty hot on "warm" so you have to keep an eye on it. Other than that, I love it! It also looks great in my new kitchen.

    I bought this to make chili and queso for parties and it was so easy! I did manage to burn the little bit of cheese still left in the pot and that was tough to clean! But that was totally my fault. I put water and turned it on and then it was easy to clean after that. Next time I am going to use liners to make it even more easy to clean.

    This slow cooker has been working great. I have a small and large one and this replaced my large one due to a crack in had. Was reluctant to buy due to the reviews, but honestly the higher temperature has been that way for a while and I just make sure there are enough fluids to keep from burning.

    I bought this as a gift for my niece. Got lucky and purchased it during a "deal of the day". She is very happy with her gift. Made a wonderful pot roast for our dinner using it. It has many different settings, attractive design, and the "Crockpot" name to back it up. Very satisfied customer.

    Finally Found The Perfect Size!

    This crock pot is the perfect size for my bone broth. I was using a 6 quart previously but it wasn't quite big enough. This was the only brand I found in this size. I also really like that it will keep my broth warm for me if I don't quite make it home from work by the time it's done. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

    NEEDING MORE SPACE FOR ROAST

    This was the perfect size. I am up sizing from my 6 quart to 8. I was tired of having to cut my roasts in half to fit in the pot. This solves that problem of my chuck roasts. I can now also cook a bigger Boston butt roast for pulled pork. Cooking enough to feed my grown family and their kids is easier.

    We needed a bigger crock pot than the one we had, found this one at Best Buy and ordered it online. Great price and fast shipping, and it is big enough for anything we want to cook! Does a great job!

    Outside gets extremely hot. I have cooked two meals with this product. Both times I had to turn it off due to contains burning. Only have about 3 hours of cooking on low temp. I have contacted the company with no return call or email. Very disappointed.

    I’ve used this about five times since receiving it. The timer is great and switches to warm. It does get very hot to the touch so If you have small children make sure they can’t get to it. Cooks faster then most crockpots so you definitely don’t have to cook things as long.

    We recently purchased this crock pot to replace one that broke. The new one is larger and also has a timer feature that is amazing. It is so nice to program it to cook while I am at work, so when I get home the food is ready.

    This is a great slow cooker...with the one exception being that the"Low" setting seems to have a temp that is a little too high. The cooker looks great and is very modern in design. Digital buttons to change the different options which are easy to use.

    We purchased this slow cooker to use at camp. Only had it a week & used it once over the weekend to cook beef stew. I like that the pot comes out for easier cleanup. I look forward to the convenience of cooking a lot more meals for family & friends.

    This crock pot is absolutely great. Cooks all kinds of meals very fast & you can set the timer. After the food is cooked, crock pot automatically goes to a mode that keeps the food warm. This 8 quart size is perfect for anyone with a large family

    I received this crock pot for Christmas from my husband. I am able to make many meals with very little effort that taste phenomenal. I can make anything from a pot roast dinner to chili. I use it all the time and am grateful for his purchase.

    I was thrilled when I discovered that Best Buy had an 8 quart in stock as I had been looking at them online but wanted to see it in person before purchasing. This one has great features but not too fancy and holds 2 more quarts.
