I have owned this slow cooker for about four years now. It has been a terrific product. We typically use this crock pot about once a month, more in the winter, less in the summer. I really enjoy the set it and forget it. It has both high and low settings so you can program the entire meal, and it will switch back and forth without you. This crock pot goes into a warming mode if the set amount of time runs out, which is great for our family on the go. We can leave it on the counter and whenever we can get the entire family together, our meal has been kept warm, which is a great treat for mom! The food cooks evenly and thoroughly. As an added bonus the inside comes out which makes cleaning this crock pot a breeze. My only complaint is that somewhere along the way our lid became a little deformed and doesn't quite get a tight seal anymore, but that may have been user error, as I cannot pinpoint exactly when or how this occurred. I would recommend this crock pot to anyone!
