    It cooks the food!

    Like, you put the raw food ingredients into the crockpot, turn it on, wait a long amount of time and then *BAM* Food. It’s like my nutritionist and my daily calendar got together and were like, “Let’s make something so he can subsist on more than just noodle cups and peanut butter (Author’s note: noodle cups and peanut butter are not eaten together, mind you. I’m not a savage).” Then they produced this wonderful device that can literally cook my food without me staring at it. Pro Tip: be careful when cooking things with cheese in it because there’s kind of a sweet spot around the 3 hour point where cheese goes from being melty magic to charred regret that makes your food taste like molten rubber. Disregard if molten rubber is your jam. Also, have not tried putting jam in the crockpot.

    This crockpot is great if you only need one 2 to 4 times a month, or once a week at most. I think if you need one more frequently the bare bones nature of this model would be irritating. It took awhile to heat and there are no special features, just your standard crock pot, which I was looking for. I do like to make caramel which many people online recommend using a crockpot, but this one is too large and the little dipper that comes with it is just a warmer- it doesn't actually cook anything. I didn't pay attention, the mini was a bonus so I vaguely thought it was maybe like a mini-crockpot but it isn't. Great to keep dips warm at parties, not quite hot enough for some fondues.

    Too Hot!

    It is a very good crockpot if you like things Hot! This would be a good thing if hot was the extent of it. It doesn't have a warm ... (it does but warm still cooks as if it is on high). I noticed that no matter what temperature it is set at the food still cooks and has even burnt to the bottom. The device will properly switch from cook to warm, but again warm is not set low enough. It will continue to boil food and has on more than one occasion burnt my meal. Watch this crockpot carefully and she's a Beaut' but let it go on it's on and watch out!!

    I’ve been in college about 6 months now and I’ve used the heck out of this crock pot and it’s hoenstly the only reason I’ve been eating good. It cooks perfectly and the high and low settings each have their own benefits and draw backs but over all it works as intended and I’ve had 0 problems with it. The smaller pot is perfect for reheating things if you don’t like or trust your microwave which I don’t and I suppose there are more long term cooking uses for it I just haven’t needed it for that. All around great product especially for the price.

    I purchased this slow cooker to replace the one I have had in my household for over 15 years. It was a part of the family . It was hard getting rid of, but now I'm more than happy that I did. The new one is amazingly easy to operate and it fits well with the decor of my kitchen. It cuts my time in the kitchen drastically. I am more than pleased with this one and more excited of the ease in operating it. Foods taste marvelous and my husband now volunteers to cook as well. Thank you Best Buy for introducing me to a life saving product. I highly recommend it and will consider this in gift giving. Blessings

    Exactly What We Didn't Know We Needed

    So my wife and I were in the store for other purchases and we happened upon this crockpot. Now, we had one, and it had a singular knob for Warm, High, and Low cooking. At the time with us working longer days, we would leave it at Low and hope for the best since it wouldn't switch to Keep Warm once it was at a certain point. This one, however, had that exact feature with the programs and times. It really has been a blessing and the little side warmer is good for small servings of queso or other warm dips while the big one houses the main event.

    Great deal at Best Buy and my Elite Rewards Zone points drove me to purchase this slow cooker to replace the one that my wife and I received for a wedding present 41 years ago, and what a wonderful, and refreshing experience. Plenty of features, works great and our first meal for a large group turned out fantastic! The little pot that came with it is also a great bonus! Perfect purchase! Strongly recommended!

    We use the large Crock for family meals. It is the perfect size and shape. The oval fits roasts and things better than the older round Crocks used to. We enjoy leftovers at our house, so never hesitate to use the large one and cook like it's for a full table of people. The small Crock, so far hasn't been in use. I can see that it could be great for warming soup, or if I make a chili and have a person that cannot have the same spice for example...but so far, the large Crock is the one to use...at least once a week for convenience and 'one pot' dinners!

    My old crock pot which finally broke did not have timer. I love that this has one because I don't have to rely on calling home to make sure someone turns it on at a certain time anymore. I can set it in the morning and it switches to warm when it needs to. For size reference it's just big enough to fit a roaster chicken and a few red potatoes around it. I have not yet tried the bonus dip warmer.

    I did some research on line and looking at different store. What I found was best buy had exactly what I was looking for. The crockpot works great, and slow cooking makes it easy for me to make meals, leaving me time to get alot of other things done around the house. I just set the time and it does all the rest. When timer runs out it keeps the food on warm until I am ready to eat. It is a good buy and a good price.

    This crock pot is so easy to use, and is so convenient when you want to minimize the amount of time spent in the kitchen with food prep and use of other pots and pans for cooking! I have prepared some roasts, stews, and soups......everything has turned out great so far. The little dipper warmer has worked well for queso and other cheesy dips, but not sure what else it could be used for. Overall, very pleased with this crock pot.

    Prior to this purchase, ive been using a slightly smaller Crock Pot slow cooker the past 15 yrs. It was on sale before Christmas so I pulled he trigger and made the purchase. LOVE this new one. It has a new "warm" feature which your heating element changes to once your timer is complete.....thus your meal is not burnt or gets cold. The price is about the same as 15 yrs ago but with more updated features.....I could go on and on

    We needed a crockpot for our vacation home and I just happen to see this in the bestbuy store when I was looking for a chest freezer. It had a competitive price and the fact it had a small additonal pot for dips/fondue-type cheese dishes it was perfect. We have used the large pot this summer and are planning on using the smaller one as we host guests. The quality of the product meets what you would expect from the crockpot brand.

    I have always wanted one of these and the little dipper was a great combo for nachos. This crock pot is a life saver , i like that i can put either chicken or any other meat like tri-tip before i go into work and have it perfectly cooked and ready to be used with the rest of the food prepping a little after getting home. I have not had a problem with this at all. I plan to keep on using this for the "set it and forget it" type recipes.

    We needed a new crock pot because our old one was only 3 quarts. Its doubled in size and ease of use with the timers. We haven't run into the problems yet with overcooking as past reviews have noted. Have not used the little dipper yet, but noticed that the plastic lid for it is kinda flimsy. It could've been glass too. Would've made it a nicer touch. Overall a great purchase when its on sale.

    This slow cooker works great. It cooks very hot and the food is done in much less time than in my Hamilton Beach slow cooker, which this one replaced. One downside, that I miss from my old slow cooker- if there is a brief interruption of power, this crockpot doesn't remember the settings and continue to cook once power is restored.

    As a busy person I needed a crock pot that would be large enough for bigger meals. This crockpot is perfect! Also, I don’t have to ask my husband to put the crockpot on warm when he gets home because now I can program it to go on warm. A must buy for anyone who likes a hot meal with no time to cook.

    Purchased this to replace my 18 year old 4 qt crockpot. Works like a charm. I work a night shift and it's always great to come home to a home cooked meal instead of frozen entrees. Have made a couple of stews, a clam chowder and quite possibly the best pot roast I've made in years. The timer is spot on. Can't say enough about this cooker. The warmer is great for putting a portion aside for later.

    This crockpot was replacing my old one that died on me (I use it A LOT), and I was suprised to find it at such a great price because not only does it have a larger capacity than my last one, but the features on it are so practical (the old one didn't have a timer like this one), very easy to clean and the added bonus, the dip warmer... I am THRILLED with my purchase.

    I have purchased 2 of these. I bought this last one as a gift to my niece (she wanted one). Being an avid slow cooker fan myself, I was happy to oblige. She has been every bit as happy as I have. Plain and simple, for the money...you can't beat this combo. The small one is great for dips, and the larger one is perfect to load up in the morning, go to work, then come back home and eat!
