    Comments about Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker:

    The crock-pot is a very versatile piece of equipment for the kitchen. You can use it t make soups and stews, chili and rice and vegetables. This is a very easy machine for even a novice to create excellent meals. It allows creativity in an effortless manner. I like to fill mine up at night and keep it in the fridge, then in the morning I simply put the ceramic pot into the metal crock, turn it on and go to work. When ever I get home, supper is ready. My food always tastes like somebodies grandmother made it. My kids love when I use our crock-pot. I love the shiny red metallic finish. It is super easy to keep clean, usually I just wipe with a damp clean cloth. The black ceramic interior is gorgeous. The glaze finish is thick and smooth. It can be kept in the fridge before and after use and it is dishwasher safe as well. I love it because it uses very little electricity. It is not an expensive item to buy and it will save you money over time if you use it regularly. It saves me money because the food it makes tastes so good there are never any left overs, no wasted food means no wasted money. It looks great in my kitchen. The bright bold splash of color really brightens up the space. They make wonderful gifts for holidays or anniversaries or as a wedding gift. If you do not already have a crock-pot, you should seriously think about getting one. This one would be perfect for you!

    Comments about Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker:

    I really like this Hamilton Beach slow cooker. It's size and capacity seem to be consistent most standard crock-pot types that most recipes are written for, so that's helpful when things to cook. I've used mine to make everything from pulled pork, stews with potatoes that I mashed afterward to chicken wings. I've never experienced any trouble with it concerning cook times or temperatures. Sure, I'll admit, more features could be nice (this one has only On, High, Low and Keep Warm), but the lack of additional features certainly hasn't prevented me from cooking whatever I'd like.

    The only feature that is truly lacking for me is an indicator light of some sort; I don't need anything fancy, just a simple red light that will illuminate to let me know when the slow cooker is on. I can, of course, confirm its status by checking the dial on the front of the heating base, but I just think an indicator light would be helpful.

    Perfect size, perfect product

    Comments about Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker:

    Hamilton Beach 5-quart oval slow cooker is a wonderful option for a crock pot. Great size, fits a 5 pound chicken or a 3 pound roast. The lid has gaskets, meaning it stays well anchored to the base to keep spills to a minimum. Dishwasher safe, meaning easy to clean. Such a great way to cook meals, put it on in the morning and by the evening you have a wonderful flavorful meal!

    Time to Heat
    Multiple heat settings make this slow cooker the perfect option to make delightful meals even while you are gone for the day. Heats quickly, but the temperature quickly levels out and heats food evenly and slowly.

    Cooking Performance
    Excellent cooking performance! The slow cooking time and low temperature ensures that the food will remain nutrient dense.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Dishwasher safe, so very easy to clean.

    Ease of Use
    Very few settings and all are self explanatory.

    Design
    Very pretty red color, and nice sleek design. Does not take up too much space on your kitchen counter.

    Durability
    Lasts, lasts, and lasts!

    Cute little Slow Cooker

    By 

    from Dallastown, PA

    Comments about Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker:

    The only reason I gave it an overall rating of 9 versus 10 is because I feel that it's just too small for what I want to slow cook in it. I say this because my husband won it at last years Company Christmas Banquet so it wasn't chosen/purchased by me. I love that it ended up being red and matched our other kitchen appliances but I've overflowed the contents of it a couple times because the recipes that were supposed to fit in this particular model, didn't. Otherwise, it's cute, easy to use and clean, durable and efficient.

    Time to Heat
    I feel the different temperature settings are accurate and heat up fast and maintain the temperature it is supposed to.

    Cooking Performance
    As far as cooking the content of the slow cooker evenly, accurately and in a timely manner, I am satisfied. Again, as mentioned in my Overall rating, this product is just too small for my liking.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Anything that makes my life easier by being dishwasher safe is okay in my book. As for the outer base which obviously cannot be stuck in the dishwasher because of the power cord, it cleans out with ease. No scrubbing hard or trying to figure out how to get those ugly stains out that always tend to accumulate over time in the base.

    Ease of Use
    Crock Pots/Slow Cookers were invented to be easy to use so this is an automatic 10 in my opinion. Put the ingredients in. Turn it on desired/required temp setting and let it do it's job for a few hours while you go about your day. One of life's greatest inventions for moms if you ask me.

    Design
    Simple, modern and my favorite color, red!

    Durability
    Base is sturdy and solid and the pot is thick and withstands slips in the sink from soapy hands. Hasn't broken yet so I'm happy.

    Highly recommend. Great slow cooker!

    Comments about Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker:

    I was originally attracted to this slow cooker because of the color. I really didn't expect to use it much, as I was doubtful of the quality due to the price. It has exceeded ALL expectations. It cooks evenly, is easy to clean, and had remained consistent from day one. It's the perfect size for a family of four. It's performance has earned me the proud title of 'Slow Cookin Queen' and had diversified our menu significantly. I highly recommend this slow cooker.

    Cooking Performance
    It consistently performs well. It has 3 settings which gives you control over how fast the food is cooked.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Haven't had any problems getting it clean. Can usually just wipe it out with the dishes. The 'tough' jobs have been resolved by simply filling with water for an hour or two, then washing as normal.

    Ease of Use
    Very easy! Just insert ingredients, turn to the appropriate setting, and walk away. Let it do the work for you!

    Design
    Beautiful color that had not faded or been scratched away. The handles are sturdy.

    Durability
    I expect to use this for years to come.

    Comments about Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker:

    I'm newly married and love to cook. I love the size, it seems very small, but I can cook quite a lot in it. Its cooks much faster then I other slow cookers I've used. Love the color too.

    Time to Heat
    The last slow cooker I used was my parents, bought two years ago. in comparison mine cooks twice as fast.

    Ease of Cleaning
    The size makes it fit in my sink nicely, and cleans easily.

    Design
    Had problem with lid, seems it should be a bit bigger. I do like the rubber on the bottom of lid and tie to hold it in place.

    Durability
    Hopeful should last my a long time.

    Time Saving

    By

    Comments about Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker:

    I was drawn to this slow cooker primarily because of its design. The red color is so vibrant and goes beautifully with the rest of my kitchen. For the price I had not expected much from it but was plesently surprized after using it. It heated up in no time at all and when it was hot, it was hot! My husband's chili came out perfectly. After the meal was put away, I was ready to soak and scrub for clean up. Again the slow cooker plesently surprized me and was as easy as cleaning any other dish! Not only was it simple to cook with, it was easy to clean! Even the times when I had not cleaned our slow cooker the same day, there was no soaking and hard scrubbing. Every meal we prepair with our slow cooker comes out perfectly cooked. There are no undercooked pieces and overdone pieces of meat, or potato, or any other component of the meal. I have nothing negative to say about this. It has saved myself so much time, I absolutely love this slow cooker!

    Great Slow Cooker

    By 

    from Kansas City, Missouri

    Comments about Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker:

    When I went to purchase a new slow cooker, the cheapest one they had at the time was completely out of stock. This Hamilton Beach slow cooker was the next one they had on the self for a decent price. I wasn't only just purchasing the cheapest one, but I loved the red color of this one and just had to have it! I'm so happy that I did choose this one, it has be an absolutely great investment! So far I have made all kinds of things in my slow cookers, from roasts to soups and have yet to be disappointed!

    Time to Heat
    Doesn't take long to heat things up, with in a few minutes you can already feel and see the inside getting warm or hot, which ever you choose.

    Cooking Performance
    Great cooking all kinds of food, always comes out wonderful.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Easy to clean, just need to let it soak every now and then before washing out.

    Ease of Use
    Extremely easy to use and take apart.

    Design
    Great design, love the red color it comes in!

    Durability
    Extremely durable, I've unintentionally banged it around a few times and there still isn't even an dent in it. The glass cover is also very resilient to being knocked around a bit.

    Great quality slowcooker for an inexpensive price!

    Comments about Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker:

    I love my Hamilton Beach slowcooker! It is so easy to clean and it heats up really quick. It is also very affordable. This is my third slow cooker and by far my favorite yet. I have not had a problem yet with it.

    Time to Heat
    Heats up everything very quickly.

    Cooking Performance
    With every recipe I've tried so far the heat settings have perfectly matched the length of time the recipe said it needed.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Most foods wipe right out with little scrubbing at all. Even bits that seem stuck wipe out with ease.

    Ease of Use
    This slow cooker is very simple to use...just turn the knob on the front to your heat setting then leave it to cook.

    Design
    The perfect size to fit on my counter and the red color is not as bright as the picture shows. It is a much darker red. It is the perfect size for a whole rotisserie chicken.

    Durability
    I have not had this product for a long time but so far it has been very durable! It has been washed and stored many times and it still looks brand new.

    Amazing Cooker and Efficient too

    By 

    from NA

    Comments about Hamilton Beach 5-Quart Oval Slow Cooker:

    I have been cooking for years and love cooking food always. I purchased this cooker last year after my earlier cooker stopped functioning from a nearby shop. I have tried cooking rice, roast meat, vegetables and many more food items and all the food gets cooked within this cooker very soon. The taste of the food is crisp and tasty and this feature was lacking in all the cookers which I have tried before. The lids are fitting perfectly and work even after using it for a long time. I wash this cooker in my dishwasher and it gets cleaned perfectly. You can also cook chicken in this slow cooker and the chicken comes out crisp and enough for two times, lunch and dinner, and can be easily consumed by four people.

    You need to always place the lid over the cooker while cooking. The time taken for cooking is very less and the food is tastier than ever. I never expected Hamilton to be such a good and reliable brand and I just love this cooker from this brand. I definitely recommend this brand as it has worked well for me.
