In the winter, my slow cooker goes at least twice a week if not more.  I make everything I can in it.  I actually have three sizes depending on what I plan to fix at the time.  I have collected so many recipes just for slow cookers that I do very little other cooking in the winter besides slow cooking.  Using it a couple times a week gives me plenty of left overs for the other days of the week.  My hubby always walks in the house and says "what smells so good" and of course, I tell him it's the slow cooker that's been going all day.  Because I work most days, it has been a life-saver when I'm too tired to do anything when I get home.  My life would not be the same with out my slow cookers!

We registered for this slow cooker for the bridal registry, not thinking that we'd actually use it a lot. I soon discovered that this is a very basic slow cooker with nothing fancy or modern about it. I like the "warm" feature that will kick on when it's done cooking.  The temperature works well and my food cooks nicely.  However, there is no feature that lets you program a start and/or stop time. It is easy to clean, to a point.  The crock (which is heavy and chips easily) comes out of so you can wash it by hand or stick it in the dishwasher. Since it is white, the outer part stains easily.  I love making sauce in the slow cooker.  My sauce will bubble and splatter occasionally during cooking. If I don't immediately wipe up any splatters on the outside, it will stain. The slow cooker does cool down fairly quickly once you unplug it and I think it is easy to store. I have cooked soups, chili and sauce in it, which all turned out well. I would recommend this to a friend who wants a cheap, basic slow cooker.

Simple, but cooks really hot

By 

from Talihina, OK

Comments about Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker:

I asked for a "big simple (not digital) crock pot" last Christmas and received a Rival Crock Pot , seven quart, that just has a knob to select low, high, or warm temperatures. It is exactly what I wanted. I keep three slow cookers - small, medium, and large. I use the large one primarily for large chickens and roast. My previous large crock pot was digital. I am somewhat anti-digital - I don't really trust them. Well, I was right not to - it didn't last very long (one of the temperature settings went out altogether and the other became unreliable) and when the electricity goes off (which it does in our rural area often), it would turn off and not come back on. So I wanted a big crock pot with a manual knob. It works great and even comes back on when the power is restored. The only negative thing about it is that it cooks very hot, by which I mean I have to cut way down on the cook times suggested in recipes. That's okay once you adapt to it and figure out how long stuff needs to be cooked, but not so great at first as everything gets overcooked.

Time to Heat
Are any slow cookers quick to heat?

Cooking Performance
Does fine once adapted to how hot it cooks.

Ease of Cleaning
I use slow cooker liners, which is a complete game-changer. No mess.

Ease of Use
Couldn't ask for a simpler operating system - low, high, or warm.

Design
Like any other simple crock pot. That locking lid device that some have for transporting without spills would be nice, but for home this one is fine.

Durability
I have a very old Rival Crock Pot that is chugging along just fine, so I expect this one to do the same.

this slow cooker is great for those on the go!

By 

from Camden Wyoming, DE

Comments about Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker:

I love my crock pot! This one is easy to use and cooks just about anything. I cook rosasts, sauces, soups and stews. I get everything together the night before, put it together in the morning before I leave, turn it on and come home to dinner! I got mine with a bonus 1/3-2/3 crock which makes it easy to prepare to different items at one time... thats really convienient. The only down sid is the crock it self; theres a ring where the juices from roasts are and I cant get it clean. I even spray it with no stick and I still have a bit of a ring; doesnt affect the performance or taste though.

Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker gets it done

By 

from Cardiff By The Sea, CA

Comments about Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker:

I had a tiny slow cooker when I was single. We received this 6-quart Rival slow cooker as a present and we use it 6-8 times a year to make big batches of soup, stew, or chili. For a two-person household, the 6-quart size is probably overkill, but we do freeze the leftovers.

The slow cooker takes up a bit more shelf space than I'd like. Its oval shape seems to be a storage hog. In addition to the unnecessarily large footprint, it's rather heavy - but this Rival slow cooker is worth it because it works well, makes one-pot meals super easy, and never lets me down.

Does it's job well

By 

from Colorado Springs, CO

Comments about Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker:

I got my Rival Crockpot as a hand-me-down from my father and stepmother before I got married a couple of years ago. This crockpot is great for many reasons. It can be used to make many things. I've made everything from pot roasts and stews, to soups and cassoroles. For pot roast and stews, it's great because you can pre make and mix everything that you want to have for dinner the previous night, start cooking it the following morning, and your dinner is done just in time for when you get home from work. If you're making something else, this crockpot has four different time setting of four, six, eight, and ten hours, depending on how long you want to cook something, or what you're cooking. The eight and ten hour setting are great for roast or any type of meat that you want to fall apart. The slow cooking time also lets the meat simmer in all the flavors of herbs or spices you might have put in it. I ususally use my crockpot once a week.

Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker can feed a crowd

By 

from Reedsville, PA

Comments about Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker:

I use this slow cooker frequently, as it was a gift, but it has some drawbacks I would consider if in the market to buy one again.

- I think it is too hot.  Maybe that's because I was used to older slow cookers, but it's taken quite a bit of tinkering to get recipes done on time rather than cooked to mush.

- The knob fell off the lid in the first year of use.  My husband has fixed it, so it is usable, but annoying.

- Mine came with a divided crock as well as the usual crock.  In my opinion, the divided crock is not worth it.  It's difficult to clean, difficult to scoop food out of, and I had trouble finding two dishes that needed the same amount of cook time in the precise proportions to fit in the two compartments.

- While it is nice to be able to select cook times, I would love to have a delay start as well, for those times when I am cooking a shorter-timed recipe but need to be away from the house longer than the cook time.

Overall, this is useful, but I probably would not purchase it again.

Love my Rival Slow Cooker

By 

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker:

I got my Rival 6-quart Slow Cooker for a gift several years ago to replace a smaller crock pot and I love it.  The oval shape and large capacity hold even a large whole chicken.  I just remove the skin from the chicken before placing it in the slow cooker to cut down on fat.  I can fit enough vegetables besides the chicken or pot roast to feed my family of 6 and have plenty of leftovers.  The removable crock makes for easy cleaning.  I have had a slow cooker with a fixed crock before and they are a pain to clean.  I also make yogurt in my slow cooker and can make half a gallon of yogurt in one batch.  My Rival Slow Cooker came with an insulated zip-top bag for transporting the crock to pot-lucks.  I also use the insulated bag to cover my slow cooker when incubating yogurt overnight. 

My one complaint about this model of slow cooker is the function that makes it automatically switch to "Warm" when the selected setting is finished.  I have had beans sitting on warm setting that are not done, but would have been, had they been left on the setting I had it on.

Awesome slow cooker!!

By 

from Waxhaw, NC

Comments about Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker:

With the Rival 6-Quart slow cooker, it was love at first use. Seriously. This thing is AMAZING. In all the times using it (which have been a LOT, let me tell you!), I have not had a bad experience. This crock pot cooks whatever you put into it nicely and evenly. 

From meats to soups, main dishes to side dishes, this Rival crockpot will NOT let you down. If I had the storage space, I would own multiples of these. I used to laugh at my mom's owning of several crockpots, but now I wish I, too, owned several. How great would it be to cook up an entire meal in just crockpots?

But I digress. The stoneware for this Rival crockpot is removable for easy serving and easy clean up. No more serving food over at the counter, or schlepping the bulky, and, let's face it, utilitarian, crockpot over to the table. Nope. Just pull out the stoneware and set on the table for easy, elegant serving.

The stoneware cleans easily, just requires some soaking if you've got some burnt on stuff around the edges.

Great crockpot for big quantities!

By 

from North Royalton, OH

Comments about Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker:

If you're a busy person, or just don't feel like watching the stove all day, this crockpot is wonderful.  I have a family who eats a lot.  A LOT.  This crockpot does the job nicely.  Wonderful size for big pots of chili or soup.  I am also able to cook very large cuts of meat in it.  I really don't know how I ever lived without it.  I use it at least 2 times a week.  It has 4 heat settings, plus the "warm" setting that it goes to when the time is up.  The white crock is fairly easy to clean.  My only gripe about this crockpot is that the handle fell off about a year ago.  Now, I'm stuck using a knife and a potholder to get the lid off.  Other than that, it's great.

P.S.--I'm looking forward to trying to make home-made yogurt in it soon.

I love my Rival slow cooker.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker:

I received my Rival 6 Quart Slow Cooker as a wedding gift that I had registered for.  As I registered I remember looking at the different brands and types of slow cookers on the store shelf and found there were a few reasons to select the Rival 6 Quart Slow Cooker over the others I saw.  I loved the oval shape of the slow cooker instead of a round slow cooker because it was able to hold more.  I wanted to be able to double recipies in my slow cooker and still be able to cook my recipies thoroughly and have the food fit in the cooker well.  I really like that there are two high settings and two low settings as well as a warm feature that it kicks on to once the time you set the slow cooker for has finished.  My slow cooker is very easy to clean since I can take the inside out as well as the lid and put them in the dishwasher.  I also like how I can take the inside out and serve out of it as a serving dish if I don't want to transfer all of the food to a new container.

Best Crock Pot I've owned

By 

from Taylorsville, IN

Comments about Rival 6-Quart Slow Cooker:

I use this crock pot at least once a week. I enjoy the automatic timing feature the best. If I'm not home when times up it simply goes to warm. No worries about coming home to cold food! It's easy to remove & clean up.
