My son gave me the Hamilton Beach crockpot with 3 different sized crocks. This is great as it allows you to make small to large amounts for the family or to a carry-in dinner without having to have several bases to store. I have very limited storage space. I was amazed that it works so well since the larger crocks sit so high out of the base.

I received this crockpot as a wedding gift and I loved the concept of the 3 different sizes for space saving purposes. I have always used a crockpot a couple times a week. I was very excited about this crockpot but I was finding my meals were very over down with all the liquid gone even on the lowest heat setting. I tried to make sure I was using the right size crock but I was ending up with over cooked or burnt food even on recipes I made several times before in a different crockpot. One day I came home to find my meal completely black and stuck to the sides of the crock. I know people who have this crockpot and really like it, but the one I had kept ruining my dinners. I got rid of it for a more basic model that works so much better for me.

Time to Heat
I feel like this model cooks to fast even on the lowest heat setting leaving meals over cooked or burnt. If you are leaving it on for long hours this may not be the crockpot for you.

Cooking Performance
This overlooked my meals 8 out of ten times.

Ease of Cleaning
This is pretty easy to clean and all the crocks are dishwasher safe.

Ease of Use
It is very easy to use.

Design
It is a good design and saves space but is very heavy if you are trying to move it with all three crocks stacked together.

Durability
It seemed to run hotter and hotter the more I used it.

High Quality,Low Price Cooker!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Slow Cooker:

I received the Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 slow cooker as a gift from my daughter. I must say I am highly impressed with the quality of this cooker for such a cheap price. I use the slow cooker almost 4 times a week to cook various meats and meals. I find it so easy to use as I can cook one meal and then switch pots and then cook another meal for the next day!

Time to Heat
By the time I turn on the Hamilton Beach cooker and get my ingredients its already heated up and ready to go.

Ease of Use
With only three settings I can literally throw my ingredients into the cooker set the timer or heat setting and go. I never have to worry about my food when cooking with a Hamilton Beach cooker. It makes cooking simple for the work week.

Durability
I have had the Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 slow cooker for a few months and I already know it'll last me for a few years. It works just as good as when I used it the first time. For the price, I would say it is worth every penny.

Elegant and Great

Comments about Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Slow Cooker:

I purchased this Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Slow Cooker last year and got a discount as I replaced my earlier product with this one. I use it quite often to cook chicken, meat, rice and other vegetables which takes minutes to get cooked well and the taste of the food cooked in this product is excellent. The product comes with 3 heat settings, 3 stoneware vessel sizes which are 2 quart, 4 quart, and 6 quart respectively. The glass lid is quite solid and in spite of falling to the ground several times, the lid has not got any scratches nor the glass has broken.


The product comes with a one year warranty and it has a solid and can be safely washed using a dishwasher. The base of this slow cooker is made of stainless steel and my product has not yet faded nor got any stains or marks even though I use it regularly. The price of this product is reasonable and quality as well is very good.

Excellence at it's best

By 

from Syracuse, New York

Comments about Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Slow Cooker:

For me, the best time to have and use a slow cooker is during Autumn and Winter seasons. I loved this one in particular for it's versatility. Hamilton Beach 3 in 1 Slow Cooker allows me to make smaller amounts of food to better suit each situation that I am cooking for. I often use it to make chili to bring to a potluck luncheon for work. The bowls it comes with are very sturdy and easy to manage. The base of the cooker is detachable and fits perfectly to all accompanying bowls. The slow cooker's lid works the same. It is not too big and can be stored very easily without too much effort. Cleaning it is just as simple too. I have never experienced a food ring around the insides of the bowls that didn't easily rinse away. They are dishwasher safe but, I do not use the dishwasher to clean them because I don't want to take the risk of it being damaged. on the side of the slower cooker all the way toward the bottom there are 3 button settings that will suit the size of the bowl you choose to use. The other knob on it is quite basic and only says low, medium or high setting. I would prefer a temperature and I wish there were handles on each bowl instead of on the base ares. Everything else about it is wonderful.

Design
Wish it had handles

New concept makes this 3 in 1 slow cooker a must have

By 

from Texas

Comments about Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Slow Cooker:

I was actually looking for a crock pot for a gift when I found this unique three in one slow cooker. Such a great idea that I bought one for a gift, I treated myself. I give the concept of three in one cooker a high rating and now that I have used it I give the product itself a even higher rating.

Time to Heat
This is my first Hamilton Beach slow cooker but I cannot tell any difference in warm up time in it compared to my old crock pot. If anything it seems to be a little quicker

Cooking Performance
I must admit that I was looking for a slow cooker with degrees opposed to low, med, high, but the three sizes of crocks won out and I am so glad that they did. This crock pot is ideal for anything you want to cook and I find I use the crock pot now more than ever.

Ease of Cleaning
The outside of this is stainless steel which cleans easily and does not spot or stain. The lid is glass with a rubber seal around the edge to make a tight fit for cooking. I actually put the lid and the crocks in the dishwasher for cleaning and they come out like new.

Ease of Use
So easy to use. The big decision for me is I want to fix two things at the same time and want a second base. I am so spoiled to this pot that I can hardly put a meal on without having used it for something.

Design
Versatile, with a stainless steel electric base. It has three basic temperature setting which works well and the three different size pots makes this a perfect accessories for in the kitchen. The three pot sizes nest inside one another making for great storage.

Durability
Although I haven't had this crock pot very long, I would give it a high rating based on the material used in the unit, the company history, and it works well.

Love this product!

By 

from USA

Comments about Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Slow Cooker:

Why has this product not been made sooner? This Slow Cooker by Hamilton Beach offers three flexible sizes in one product. It comes with two, four and six quart size cooking bowls. This also saves space for storing by the 2 bowls fitting inside each other. The one lid fits each crock perfectly. I love using this for not only every day use but for large gatherings. Once the item is cooked it can easily be moved, in its bowl, to the table for easy serving. The two smaller crocks fit nicely in my microwave for speedy heating of leftovers. I have actually used the crocks as mixing bowls as well. It also comes with a one year warranty. Due to the success of this product in our home, we have retired some of our many other crock pots!

Time to Heat
The heat up time is fantastic! It does not heat too quick as to burn the food. It also has three heat settings.

Ease of Cleaning
Each "crock pot" along with the lid are dishwasher safe which makes for easy clean up!

Love my Slow Cooker!

Comments about Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Slow Cooker:

My husband purchased me this Hamilton Beach 3 in 1 slow cooker this year for my birthday and I love it. The 3 in 1 cooker is way better than using a traditional crock pot because I can use it when preparing a variety of many different dishes and not just soup! You can heat everything from spaghetti pasta, meat roasts, vegetables and of course wonderful soups and stews for the hubby and kids to enjoy! This was a gift we both enjoy very much every day and I would definitely recommend it to anyone to buy for themselves or give as a gift!

Time to Heat
The 3 in 1 slow cooker offers many different variable heating settings and keeps soup fresher and warmer longer!

Cooking Performance
It performs like a champ!

Ease of Cleaning
The pots lift out and can cleaned very easily.

Ease of Use
This is great crock pot that would be suitable for everyone from a beginner cook to a master chef!

Design
I love the 3 in 1 design! You have a much better control over the temperature as well as the ability to prepare more than one kind of regular soup dish.

Perfect crock pot with many uses

By 

from Wesley Chapel, FL

Comments about Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Slow Cooker:

I love this crock pot and the concept of the different size bowls. My husband and I both work during the day so we cook in the crock pot at least 3 times a week. I bought this because of the different sizes of bowls. I like to use the medium one for dinners throughout the week, it is the perfect size and my food comes out great. The smaller one is great to use for dips, or smaller sized appetizers, and the large one is great when having dinner parties.
The bowls are easy to store and clean up very easy. I like having this all in one crock pot and would recommend this to anyone that likes to crock pot cook. It is very reasonably priced and works very well.

Time to Heat
I usually use the low setting for slow cooking since we are not home during the day and simply let our dinner cook while we are away, but I used the higher setting this past weekend and it worked great.

Design
The design is amazing and having different sized pots is the best feature of this crock pot.

Cute Slow Cooker

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Slow Cooker:

This is the perfect slow cooker when you're making different dips to serve at parties, dinners, or soups. You can change the size of the crock pot by placing a different bowl on top of the base. The base can then be set to different settings, like low, medium, and high. This is also different than other crock pots I own because the Hamilton Beach 3 in 1 Slow Cooker is a round shape. This only makes the dishes easier to store for me, since they don't take up as much space as my oblong slow cooker.

I keep this in a cabinet in my kitchen, and I am constantly moving it from place to place. I never had a problem with anything breaking or denting on it, so they are very durable.

These are also really easy to wash, since I just put them in the dishwasher.

Time to Heat
This heats up relatively quickly.

Cooking Performance
The slow cooker cooks all of my food evenly.

Ease of Cleaning
This is very easy to clean because I just put it in the dishwasher.

A-mazing!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 Slow Cooker:

I have been a mom now for nearly a year, and had a family to take care of for nearly three years(my husband is actually needier than our nearly one year old daughter, he is a baby himself most of the time) and because of how young I am, and with never having anyone teach me how to cook, I had to learn on my own. This crockpot helped me a whole heck of a lot while I was learning, it tells you in the manual and on the temperature gauge the temperature needed for different things like homemade chili, stew, pot roast, and even chicken. By using this crock pot, I learned how to cook different things without a crock pot, how long they needed to cook, and the temperature needed to cook them properly. I am a way better success with my family when it comes to cooking for them now. I don't even know how many dinners I ruined before we got this crock pot.

Time to Heat
This heats up way faster than a stove or even an oven, I love it.

Cooking Performance
Perfectly cooked food everytime!

Ease of Cleaning
You just take the inner bowl out and rinse it and it comes clean very easily.

Ease of Use
So very easy to use, just read the dial.
