Overall I love this crockpot. It's large enough that I can make anything I want in it and still have plenty of leftovers. The only negative thing about the size is that it is difficult for me to store because my apartment is so small it it takes up quite a bit of space. If I had a larger home it would not matter to me. I've tried making all kinds of things in it such as sauces, casseroles, meat, veggie and rice combos, etc and everything comes out delicious. The only problem I really find with it is that when I use the plastic liners, if I leave it on high too long and dont pay attention it has a tendency to burn what I am cooking. If I'm awake and paying attention I can lower it and I have no problem. The low setting just doesnt cook it enough to leave it there for while I'm at work. If I remember correctly I bought this either online or at walmart and it was quite cheap on sale, so I was very happy to see how well it works. I would highly recommend this product unless you intend on saving space or plan to use liners and leave it on high.

This is the first crockpot I have ever purchased so I don't have a previous crockpot to compare this one to. I think overall this is a good crockpot, it gets the job done. My one biggest problem has been that it gets too hot. Even when I have it on the warm setting when I am done cooking the food it continues to boil and be really hot. Because of this I am afraid to leave the crockpot on all day if I am not at home. Like I said before I don't know if this is something that all crockpots do or if it is just a problem with this one. I do like the black color and sturdiness of it. It cooks the food well as long as you keep an eye on it towards the end of your cooking period. This is not a crockpot I would purchase again, but for the price I got it for it was a good buy.

Xmas gift

By 

from USA

Comments about Crock-Pot 5-Quart Slow Cooker:

Bought this for Xmas and couldn't wait to use it. It had a funny smell at first, kind of a burning plastic sent but it hasn't happened since. We made chili in it first and fell in love with how it turned out! So easy to use and I hope to be able to make dinner more often (I'm a terrible cook normally).

Time to Heat
Considering we intended to make 12 hour slow cooked chili the first time, this kept an even temperature (as far as I could tell) and the chili turned out fantastic.

Cooking Performance
Even heating through out the hours it was on, no burnt or over done food so I say it did its job.

Ease of Cleaning
Just soak with water and dish soap. I'm sure the bowl part could go in the dishwasher however I prefer to hand wash.

Ease of Use
Very set it and forget it kind of gadget - my favorite kind! I'm forgetful so its nice that the delicious smell of food is my reminder instead of the smoke alarm.

Design
Easy to read, LED lights up correctly and can't really find a problem with the way its made. Still new so may find something later.

Durability
Glass top so be careful but aside from that it stands up well so far.

Fast cooking Crock Pot!

By 

from Joliet, IL

Comments about Crock-Pot 5-Quart Slow Cooker:

I ended up buying this Crock-pot when it was on sale through Shopko a few weeks back. All of my kitchen items are being cleaned since we had a house fire. I do still have another one that I have had for 10 years, but we won't be getting that stuff back for another 4 months or so. sleek design, and I love the time choices on it for cooking, however I find that it cooks a little on the high side, so I have to adjust for that. You definitely will not have a problem with cooked food. The only other issue I have had with it so far is the fact that the handle on the lid traps water in it from beneath. I do not like that very much, as I am sure it will get a little funky after awhile. The pot is removable and easy to put into the dishwasher when finished, and is a nice heavy duty pot. I always worry about the side handles breaking so hopefully these will be durable.

Time to Heat
Cooks on the fast side so time may be off just a tad.

Cooking Performance
Even though it is fast, it cooks well so you won't have anything not cooked in this pot. heats fast too.

Ease of Cleaning
Very easy clean up except for the water that gets under the handle area. That is a pain to get the water out. Other than that I just pop it into the dishwasher when done and it cleans nicely!

Ease of Use
push of a button easy. Just make sure to watch it an hour or so before it "says" by the time you have set it by. (4 hours, 6 hours, 8 hours or 10 hours).

Design
sleek, and simple

Durability
seems durable, I always worry about the handles and buttons of course, but overall quite durable.

Crockpot The Original Slow Cooker

By 

from Mountain City, TN

Comments about Crock-Pot 5-Quart Slow Cooker:

After having my old Crockpot Brand cooker for over 2 decades, I finally purchased a new Crockpot Brand Crockpot and not because the old one broke, but because it was old looking, starting to rust a little on the outside and stained. I am very pleased with my new purchase. The look is attractive for the kitchen counter where it stays all the time since it is a little too heavy for me to pick up. It works very well and I would say that I am glad I upgraded. For the price, it is well worth my money as it saves me time and you just cannot get the same kind of tasty results with food on the stovetop than you can slow cooked by a Crockpot. It saves me from having to check on and stir food constantly, making it a valuable tool in my kitchen.

Love love this

By 

from Avondale Estates, GA

Comments about Crock-Pot 5-Quart Slow Cooker:

Before I bought this, I've never used a crockpot before. I used to make dinner the old fashioned way, slaving over the kitchen pot. I love to cook so I didn't mind this at all. But after buying this pot, oh my... Dinner becomes so easy to make. Just load up the ingredients, close the lid and presto! It's amazing for making pulled pork for sandwiches, tacos, salads, whatever. There's an automatic timer built in so I know when the food is ready and it always tastes amazing. This corckpot is sturdy and keeps my food warm for a long time. I like that it is widely avaiblable so if it breaks down for whatever reason, I can easily repair it. It has lasted me over a year. definately recommend if youre short on cooking time, but want a good meal.

Crock-Pot crockpot is longlasting, durable, good quality

By 

from Wentzville, MO

Comments about Crock-Pot 5-Quart Slow Cooker:

Fifteen years ago my mother bought my then boyfriend a Crock-Pot crockpot for Christmas. We are now married and still have and use this crock pot. This size is a great size and we use it to cook meals for our family of five. It cooks nicely and keeps things warm as needed. We have cooked roasts, chicken, meatballs, cheese dip etc and all have turned out perfectly. We bought a larger size Hamilton stainless steel crockpot for dishes when we are entertaining and why I love that crockpot as well we are already on our second one because the first one the ceramic pot cracked. We have no issues with this crockpot and I am impressed that we have had it for this long. I would highly recommend this for a solid, high use crockpot.

Really nice product, but doesn't seal

By 

from Hanover, PA

Comments about Crock-Pot 5-Quart Slow Cooker:

This crockpot is a really nice one to use! It has two time options for each heat setting (2 high, 2 low). When it reaches the specified amount of time, it switches to a handy keep-warm setting.

Using this crockpot is a huge time saver! You can dump everything in and come back later to not only find your meal ready, but to find it has smart-switched to the low setting to keep it warm.

It is very easy to clean this crockpot and is overall very user-friend, however one thing I wish was different is having a lid that would seal or could somehow be locked into place. Considering the affordable price, and how great it otherwise is though, having a lid that doesn't lock into place isn't that big of a deal.

Great Gift

By 

from Salt Lake City, UT

Comments about Crock-Pot 5-Quart Slow Cooker:

Right before Christmas my slow cooker died. I got this model from my brother for Christmas and have been very happy! I have used it about once a week since then and it has yet to let me down. It cooks much better than my previous model. The lid is completely detached which I very much prefer than the attached. The programing is simple and easy to use. The crock is removable which makes cleaning a breeze. I really don't have any complaints about this slow cooker. This is the third one I have owned and by far my favorite! It isn't super fancy with the programing but I have no use for anything more advanced. The price is reasonable and it cooks meats nice and slow to keep them tender and juicy. I have been happy with everything I have cooked.
