Save time for cooking
This cooker really is a Set and forget it! I absolutely love the convenience of starting my meals and not having to keep watch!
This crock pot is amazing for having dinner ready when I go to work. And with having 3 kids anything that makes having dinner easy and ready is alright with me! I am able to cook anything and everything with this crockpot by Hamilton Beach. I have made beef ribs to stews. It's amazing how simple and convenient. I would highly recommend this crockpot for anybody who's used to the basic low medium and high settings on their slow cooker. This one is so advanced, in the way you can set timer for amount of hours you want your food to cook and just forget about it! I do not know why I did not purchase this sooner. My husband can even prepare dinner for us now, and he is not a cook..to say the least. Ease of Use My husband is not much if an appliance guy, nor a cook. At least with this Hamilton Beach crockpot, I know he will not starve when I am out of town. I keep all the ingredients in the fridge, and literally label thr crockpot with a sticky note what to set the timer for. And boom, the hubby eats.
Do you work shiftwork? Maybe your a nurse, a police officer, or maybe your a full time mom, and working a full time job. I'm a full time mom and I work shift work. Sometimes I work 6pm to 6am, and sometimes I work 6am to 6pm. My schedule is so crazy that I rarely have the energy to come home after a long day and cook a healthy meal. I purchased this slow cooker almost a year ago, because I grew tired of the fast food flavorless meals I was feeding my family. I wanted healthier meal options that fit my schedule while still satisfying my craving for home cooking. Since the purchase of this cooker, my family has not only enjoyed healthier meal options, but we have saved money and time standing over a hot stove. Everyone loves to set it and forget it. I thoroughly enjoy walking through my door at the end of a 12 hour shift and finding that my dinner is hot and ready. This cooker has proven to be reliable. I purchased the same model for my daughter this past Christmas, and she was so happy to receive it.

Size good, concept good, looks good Dlesnt work. It over cooks the food. No matter the setting, it overcooks and dries out my food. I wrote to the company because I couldnt return it to the store, I didnt hear back. Assuming I was lost in the shuffle, I wrote again. Nothing. I will not buy Hamilton Beach any more.
I love crock pot cooking and probably use mine on an average of three times a week. I recently purchased a Hamilton Beach Set 'n' Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker and have not been disappointed. One of the features I like about this crock pot is that you can set it to cook for a specified period of time, then it automatically turns to the 'warm' setting. This is a great feature for people like me who are gone from home for more than 8 hours a day (many dishes take a lot less time than that). I also like the fact that the lid will snap securely to the ceramic insert, as it makes it much easier to store and transport. It's easy to use and easy to clean. The only drawback I've encountered is the fact that the power cord is a little too short. But, overall, I'd recommend this crock pot to anyone wanting to cook homemade meals for their family on a limited time schedule. Design I wish there were a little more overlap in how large the ceramic insert is, because sometimes it is difficult to remove when it's hot. Durability I've taken this cooker everywhere, and the only thing I'm beginning to notice is the handle on the lid is becoming a bit loose.
I love this Slow Cooker! It is so nice to throw some items in the cooker, go to work, come home and dinner is done....so easy! Time to Heat I like how quickly this cooker heats up. You can set the temp by using a guide on the lid that gives you the correct temperatures for different types of meats and poultry. Cooking Performance This crock pot is nothing like the first one I purchased so many years ago. You have so many options in cooking. A probe, high and low settings make it hard to burn your food. If it is on too long it switches to warm. Your roasts come out so moist and juicy! It pulls apart with a fork. I always have so many great compliments on my roast. When I make a chicken I add the spices and the chicken when done, falls off the bone. For the holidays I put the left over turkey carcass in the pot, add some turkey, veggies, put on low, and leave it alone all day and enjoy the family. We have a delicious soup for dinner, yummy!. Soup are so delicious when made in this crock pot and the best thing is, you put it in and it does all the work for you. I was so happy with this crock pot I purchased one of these for my sons family, they were so happy. I brown the beef first then throw it in with potatoes, carrots, a package of onion and mushroom soup mix and the beef stew comes out delicious. Potatoes cook up nicely, and the meat cuts with a fork. Ease of Cleaning So easy to clean! I love that the part that holds all your food comes out, so you can either put it in the dishwasher safely or just clean with warm sudsy water. The outside surface cleans easily with soap and water. Ease of Use It is so easy to use! So very handy for the working mom. Easy to use, just put your meat, and veggies in, add some spices, Set the heat selection, or place in your probe, and off you go, dinners ready in a few hours when you come home. And that yummy scent when you come home...delicious! Design This is a beautiful Crock pot. The stainless steel is beautiful, and easy to wipe with soap and water to clean. Durability I have had this crock pot for a while now and use it at least 3 times a week. It's made strong to last. I can tell it took a lot of thought with this wonderful design.

I love this appliance. I am by no means a good cook, but with this device it is impossible to make a mistake. Simply dump the ingredients in the pot, select the desired cook program, and let it do the work for you. Time to Heat It is virtually going to take less than one minute to heat up. Regardless of the setting you choose, the pot is ready to go immediately upon turning it on. Cooking Performance I use the simmer, broil, and slow cook feature. So far each have done the job well, have prepared my meals perfectly, and cook foods evenly. Ease of Cleaning All parts are dishwasher safe. Just remove the pot after each use, and place it in the dishwasher for easy clean up. Ease of Use The device has several program settings. Just choose the type of food you are cooking, desired taste, and time, and it does the rest for you. Design It is slimmer than other crock pots which I really like as it does not take up too much room on the counter. It still has a 6 quart size, allowing you to make more food, and freeze it for later consumption easily. Durability The materials seem durable, interior of the pot is non-stick, and the exterior is extremely rugged as well.
