Rated 5 out of 5Â by Oogs Love it - ready to purchase another
I've used this crock pot for 4 years and love it. Recently, I dropped/broke the insert. After reading many reviews on many brands, I'm heading out to get this one again - one for me and one for my son's first apartment.
Why? The meat probe allows for cooking to a desired temp, then drops to warm to avoid over cooking. Sealed top making it easy to carry and keeps the heat in. Options for manual or programmable settings, the size, quality, aestheticâ¦very satisfied customer.
PS, yes, I could have purchased a new insert, however, I broke the meat probe a while back and miss it too much - time to refresh; the mechanics worked well beyond the 1 year warranty; just a clumsy user at times!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Woody2000 Great Idea, But Not Much Else
Great idea, but awful product! I purchased this for my wife for Christmas. When we took it out of the box, the left side of the aluminum holder/panel had a big dent. We took it back and got another one. The product looked fine, but the first time my wife used it the panel went out. We took this one back and exchanged it for another one. When my wife opened this box, she noticed that it had been repackaged and that there was a dent in the bottom of the aluminum holder/panel. Today, after striking out 3 times, I took this one back and got my money back. I would highly recommend that you stay away from this product and spend your money on a much more durable crockpot. Great idea, but bad design!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Teachks Not bad if you only want it to last two months.
Purchased at Kohls end of January and have used 5-6 times. Today I put in a $15 roast and started a timed program. At the four hour mark I noticed I was not smelling the cooking meat. It had cooked for little while but quit sometime before the four hour mark and crock was cold. Panel still working, no heat. Throwing out roast as I don't know how long it sat without cooking. Thank goodness I hadn't got rid of my trusty old Rival Crock Pot. Will be retuning as soon as possible.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nanniebunnie Love This Slow Cooker
I love my new Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker. I have made pork and Sauerkraut, veggie soup, and Corned Beef and cabbage in it thus far, and it was excellent. It's easy to program and to use. I am disabled, and have difficulty standing for long periods of time. I love that I can throw everything in the pot, program it and walk away. I love the see thru lid so I can check my dinner without opening it and the lock on lid and lid rest are absolutely great. Haven't used the meat temp probe or small crock yet, but think they are a great idea. Very attractive.
