    Do not like the pot

    Posted
    Melce

    I received this pot as a gift. I used it twice after reading the booklet that came with it. It said do not use the locks during cooking and do not open during cooking because it will release much of the heat. These things I understood. I've used the pot twice. The first time I used it, I noticed the lid didn't seem to fit the pot. I made sure not to overfill. I tried my best to center the lid but so much Steam escaped from around the lid, I had to take a paper towel and soak it up from around the rim of the pot. This pot has steam holes and it doesn't seem logical that so much would escape from around the lid. The second time I used it, the same thing happened. I took a piece of paper and stuck it between the lid and the pot. I could run it around the entire lid except on the handle ends. The only way to not have this gap is to lock the handles.....which you cannot do during cooking. I called the manufacturer and their only comment was that all crock pot lids fit this way. Well, as the owner of a number of crockpots over the years, this has not been my experience. Another thing is the gasket around the lid retains the odor of whatever was cooked. I'm returning the pot.

    Fantastic slow cooker!!

    Ok, I think I just died and went to heaven. My new Hamilton Beach 6 qt Stay or Go slow cooker arrived at my front door yesterday. (Thank you for free shipping Best Buy!) I decided to try it out with some el cheapo chicken legs that I had bought in a 10 lb bag. I did not follow a recipe. Instead, I just quartered about 6 medium sized red potatoes, cut a large white onion into chunks, 3 or 4 garlic cloves sliced and about 4 carrots peeled and sliced. I put the vegetables into the stoneware crock and put a little salt and pepper on them. Then I removed the skin from the chicken legs (3 big ones) and laid them on top of the veges and put a little salt and pepper on them. I poured about 1/2 cup of cheap white wine over the chicken and veges and turned the cooker on to the low setting. That was at 10:00pm. I turned the cooker off at 10am and let it cool down. All I can say is, it is to DIE FOR!!!! I cannot believe how well it all came out. The meat is falling off the bone, the vegetables are tender and the both is so flavorful. I plan to use this cooker all the time as I work so much and don't have alot of time to cook. Now I can't wait to try out different recipes. Thank you Hamilton Beach and Best Buy for such a great product!!!!

    I got this crockpot when my old one went out. I love the fact that the lid locks down when you want to take it with you. I also has a spoon that clips to the top of the lid. There are also premade labels that you can put in a slot on the front so everyone will know what is in the pot. It seems to cook evenly. My potatoes get done without the rest of the items overcooking. I love the "warm setting" I wish it did turn off by itself, but I am always home before my dinner is done . I would recommend handwashing the lid, due to the rubber seal around it. the main pot can be washed in the dishwasher.

    We needed a bigger crock pot/cooker, and this one had decent ratings, so we gave it a try. We use it often, and it is living up to expectations. Heat settings work as advertised. We like the portability and the way that the lid seals. Glad we bought it. Would give it 5 stars, but haven't had it long enough to judge it thoroughly.

    I love that this crockpot has a locking lid with a great rubber seal around the lid. So no spills when I take food somewhere and no more having my car smell like onion soup because it spilled!! It's nice and big and looks great on my countertop. Love it!

    best crockpot i've had

    Great for a family of four or six. The lid seals on tightly so steam doesn't escape easily and it hots up more quickly. Has a handy spoon rest on the lid which is very convenient, and being able to carry it with the handles is great for potlucks and travel.

    My husband and I got this slow cooker as a Christmas present a couple of years ago and we love it. It is such a nice large slow cooker. The seal on the lid is great and the removable lining comes in handy. The only thing I wish it had was a digital timer and display.

    We were pleasantly surprised at the speed that we received our order AND how nice the cooker was. We have already used it a couple of times and really like the size. The top is especially handy.

    We use this about once a week. Never had any issues with it and it's a good size. Owned for more than a year... Great price too compared to others of less quality.

    Slow cooker works great! I've used it a few times now and it has made quite a few amazing meals so far. The temp settings seem to be right on which doesn't always seem to be the case for slow cookers.

    I bought one of these for myself and liked it so well that I bought one for my daughter and then one for my sister. Both of them are as pleased with the product as I am.

    Bought this crock pot to look more polished at a reception. The look and functionality are great. However it dents and scratches very easily. It was not handled roughly.

    I love being able to fill the pot without worrying that it will spill over during cooking. I use it also to make a great bone broth from chicken carcasses.
