The Kalorik Slow cooker has been a decent crock pot for me in the past several months. I use this crock pot to make turkey chilli and it always comes out delicious. The difference between the high and low settings are night and day, which is a great thing. On my old cooker those two settings were so close in the temperature that they basically left me with one setting. The low setting is allows me to let my food marinate longer before I raise it to high. This pot has an even distribution of heat through out the entire cooker. I have never once experienced any burned rice or noodles while using this crock pot. I like the removable inner pot that makes cleaning easier. I can wash the pot in the sink or put it in the dishwasher with no problems. The major issue I have with this pot is that I worry about its durability. Every once in a while the Kalorik Slow Cooker will just cut off and go in to keep warm mode. This usually will only last for about 30 seconds and revert back to the original setting. This has been happening more frequently over the past couple of weeks and I fear that it is a sign of breaking down.
