Rated 1 out of 5Â by LizR Beware! stir paddle made food taste like plastic
Bought this a few months back and loved it at first but had only used the metal stir paddle for larger stews. I used the general stir paddle this weekend for chille and it completely ruined the entire batch it smelled and tasted like plastic. I washed the stirir before use so I don't know why I had this issue. I had to throw the entire batch away which was awful since I had guests over for the start of the NFL season. I don't know why the stirring paddle is made out of plastic in the first place and not metal like the other attachment. The inside of the crockpot still smells like plastic even though I've cleaned it twice. I might have to trash the whole thing. Very disappointed.

The stirring feature is great, I wish it started stirring a little sooner than 2 hours though. It cleans up easy

Received this crockpot as a Christmas gift and have used it a handful of times. imagine my dismay when I removed the stoneware from the crockpot last evening to wash it out by hand and discovered it was CRACKED down the side! owned a previous crockpot for years with no problem. I do not have the receipt as this was a gift. Too bad for me. Like the timing features and warming as well as stirring. Never in the dishwasher, stored in its own cabinet, handled only by me, used maybe 5 times. Incredibly disappointing and have to wonder what has happened to the manufacturer's quality controls.

My favorite crock pot recipe is for Swiss Steak. Coming home from work to experience the aroma of that meal filling the house is so theraputic. So wonderful to not have to put down my purse and start supper as it is already deliciously prepared in my old crock pot. One of the reasons I have shied away from recipes that needed to be stirred is because I wasn't home to provide that needed element; however, it would be great to be able to have a stirring mechanism that would stir soups, etc., and then I could utilize all the delicious recipes. This is a boon to all cooks.
