Rated 5 out of 5Â by SBA68 Works great and cooks well.
The style is nice and the red outside color is great. The crock is black, and large (7 quart) and very easy to clean. This crock pot cooks faster than my previous 6 quart round one which was about 8 years old and is no longer available. I cooked a 3-1/2# Sirloin tip boneless roast that would normally take 7-8 hours on low but this crock pot cooked it in 5-1/2-6 hours on low. If you normally put a crock pot on to cook while you are work or away for 8 hours or more, this may cause a problem. I was home and so no issue. I also cooked pork country spare ribs with bones - approx. 4# and cooked faster than the old crock pot did. About 6 1/2 hours on low vs. 8 hours previously. So far, I am very satisfied and would recommend. The oval shape also allowed the ribs fit well into the crock.

I purchased this in purple for my daughter to use in college. I should have gotten another for myself.. I have always loved the Crockpot brand, their customer support is excellent.( I have had other pots with lids that are attached so you can leave open during a buffet service, but I find the simpler the better. The idea was great, but the plastic doesn't hold up.) So I am sticking with the less is more when it comes to features on these items. You won't be disappointed with this purchase, it does just what it is supposed to do- Toss in the ingredients and come home to a hot delicious meal.

I just got this for Christmas and I am returning it because it takes way to long for anything to actually cook in this crockpot. I also have the Hamilton Beach slow cooker which is the same as this crockpot and comparing the two, Hamilton Beach gets hotter and cooks quicker. The Crockpot brand took 4 hours longer than the Hamilton Beach and also some of my recipes called for 1 1/2 hour cook time and it actually took 5 hours and I mean with a desert and carrots. If you want a crockpot that takes a day and a week to cook than this is your crockpot otherwise Hamilton Beach wins hands down!
