I was assigned to find a programmable cook crock pot for our organization. The folks I am associated with are hard bargainers and know the value of their money. So, I did considerable research on the options for crock pots before I purchased. Some of the complaints that were evidenced had to do with cooking temperatures being too high or too low and problems with the units shutting off before the food is cooked. So, I wanted to make sure I avoided these pitfalls. I thought I had succeeded with this unit; but, alas there is a problem. We get what seems to be a boil on the warm setting. Arguably, this may be due to the unit shifting from higher settings to warm; but, I have found this not to be the case. It seems to approximate this temperature no matter how it gets to it, switching or initially being programmed at this setting. That is our only complaint with the unit, and it is somewhat inconvenient because we had to adjust our cooking, set up time because of it.
