    Not worthy of my cabinet space

    I purchased this crock pot before I read the reviews online about temperature readiness. My old 25 year old crock pot did not have a removable stoneware insert, so I thought it was time to add another crockpot to my collection. I wanted a oval style and was pleased when I saw the varied temperature controls. However, my old crock would get hot on high after a short time and I felt that it cooked my meals well. I tried this crock with water to see how hot it would get and I was disappointed at the tepid water temperature on high after 2 hours. Also, this crock would not allow me to use a wall timer as the controls cannot be preset. I think I will go back to LOW-HIGH-WARM, as I think that at least I can use a wall timer. It is pretty, but for me, not worthy of my cabinet space!

    Better Look Elsewhere

    Initially, I thought this was what my wife & I needed, to replace the old small Crock Pot we had to toss. Unfortunately, it's extremely limited in it's ability, so we returned it. While it does have 2-, 4-, 6-, & 8-hour cooking times, the 2- & 4- hour times are limited to the "High" setting, and the 6- & 8-hour times are limited to the "Low" setting. If you want to...say...cook something on "Low" for only two hours, or "High" for six hours, this will NOT do it. There are plenty of other units...some by Crock Pot, and others made by different companies...which offer greater possibilities.

    Good slow cooker for 2-3 people.

    First off, I use a slow cooker at least 2-3 times a week and I just dont think this one will be my primary. It's just a little too small for a family meal. I will use as a secondary item in the meal. Say soaking/cooking beans for chili. or if something needs to be cooked separately. I do like the auto features on this crock pot. It switches to warm after the allotted 4-8 hours. This is a lighter weight cooker than any other cooker Ive owned. however when i try to move/slide this across the counter it seems to not want to move out of place. I am not sure whether its more of a pain that way or not. I personally like things to move with ease. Some people like items to stay in place.

    Small Crock Pot Good for Couple or Small Family

    I love the Crock Pot brand and had to break down and buy a new one after my other slow cooker died. I did look at many different models and decided on this one. It does the job, but is rather small. I do have trouble fitting in enough potatoes and carrots with a small roast for my family of 3. I think this is great for a single person or couple, but now that my daughter is older, it simply can not fit what I would normally want to cook for the three of us, while allowing for a bit of leftovers for the next day. I am looking at buying a bigger one now..

    Great for Smaller Households

    We bought two of these when they were on sale. We are a two person household and this 4qt. size is perfect for us. But it's big enough to make a meal and still have enough leftovers for another meal or two, if we want. I love that it automatically goes to a "Keep Warm" function at the end of the set cooking cycle. We bought one for our future daughter-in-law too. She's never used a slow cooker and loves the simplicity, now that she's used it. It's a basic slow cooker, but meets all the needs of our two person families.

    This is a simple straight-forward cooking device that works exactly as advertised. We've used it with frozen slow-cooker meals from Omaha steaks and the results are at least as good as the restaurants here in Vacaville CA with about 5 minutes work. We saved the price of the cooker in the first two meals by eating in, in quiet comfortable surroundings. We are retired and find the simplicity of the cooker and the quality of the food it produces significantly enhance our quality of life.

    Compact size for smaller portions

    I own a larger CrockPot, but didn't like using it for anything but large portions. Started looking for a smaller one and saw quite a few in the $15 dollar range, but I liked this one (4 qt.) because it has the program settings of high/low and a 4/6 hour timer, with the pot keeping the food warm once it is done cooking. Have already used it for a stew and another time for oatmeal. Works fine, nice smaller profile. Good price at Best Buy - others were about $15 higher.

    Time Saver

    Great product for anyone who doesnt have the time to cook or just want to eat healthier. Very easy operation since there's only two buttons (on and off) and five settings (two highs, two lows, and a warming setting). It takes up not too much space on the counter and saves time by not having to watch it cook and only having one dish to wash. Basically anyone can operate it since the exterior never gets hotter than warm.

    I absolutely love my Crock Pot! This was one of my first real “adult” purchases and definitely one of my favorites. It’s the easiest thing to use, and I can leave it on all day! It doesn’t use much energy at all, which was one thing I worried about at first. I would definitely recommend for any college student, or anyone who is busy throughout the day and doesn’t feel like cooking after work/school.

    I used this pot one time and after the first cleaning I saw where the inside looked damaged as if some of the inside was coming off. I used sudsy mild dish washing liquid with a dish clothe. It was very easy to clean. I may try to return it but I threw the box away. I would recommend this product only because I know that Best Buy sells very good products this is the first time I ever had a problem with one of their products.

    My First Crock-Pot

    This crock pot works very well. I bought it to make a pot roast, my first one. I was very pleased with the results. Set it and forget it. I am a single person and 1 piece of roast lasted several days. This is a small unit. The one roast I bought and the potatos, carrots, celery barely fit inside. I would buy a larger unit if I had more than one mouth to feed. Good product.

    Just the right size for two people

    Now that there are just two of us we didn't need the big crock pot all the time. This is the perfect size for two or three. We found that the bigger units tend to burn the food an the bottom if you reduce the quantity to feed two people. We can still enjoy making our favorites without having to make too much and if we have company we can use the larger one we still have.

    Great Smaller Crock-Pot

    I have a 6 quart slow cooker that I use primarily for pot roasts and stews - I bought this one for smaller meals. This is your standard slow-cooker with low and high heat settings and a basic timing feature. It's easy to use and the stoneware insert is really heavy which insures that the heat is even so there is no scorching (the insert is also dishwasher safe!).

    I bought this for my 2 person family. I got the crockpot home, and unwrapped it. The handle had a crack in it, so I returned it for another the next day. I opened that one in the store, and that one was scratched inside the pot. I gave up and got my money back. I don't want paint in my food. Disappointed in crockpot.

    Great crockpot

    So, I bought this crockpot because I accidentally broke the lid to my old one, and I was extremely hesitant on buying this crockpot at first and settled because the one I really wanted was not in stock, but this one was actually less money and turned out to be an amazing crockpot. I thought it would be too small but it's actually the perfect size as well.

    4-Qt Crock-Pot holds more than I expected

    I had given away my larger slow cookers but still wanted to have a small one for occasional use. The 4-Qt model is lighter weight, stores easily yet it holds contents of recipes specifying for use in a 4-6 qt slow cooker. The controls in this model are easy to use.

    Works great, but settings a little off

    Gets the job done, but the settings are a bit annoying. There are settings for 4, 6, 8 and 10 hours, after which the warm cycle comes on. However, the 4 and 6 hours are high heat only and the 8 and 10 are low only. So, if you want to cook on low for 4 hours then have it autoswitch to warm, you're outta lock. Pretty good otherwise.

    I already have a 6 quart Crockpot but it held too much for just me and my husband so when I saw this 4 quart I knew it would be perfect or us. I love the Crockpot brand because they are very well made and reliable.In all the years that I have had my 6 quart,I never had a problem and I think this will be also be just as reliable.
