    Extremely pleased with lg size, October 5, 2011

    I have been really pleased with this purchase. My last one was a 6 qt so I after it finally quit I wanted to get the largest I could afford. With 3 hungry sons, and a husband, I needed a bigger size, if there was ever gonna be any left overs for my lunch. It heats up really fast, seems to cook my recipes faster than my old one. The spoon/lid rest that doubles as a cord wrap during storage is handy. The only fault I have found with mine is there is no light indicating that it is on or the setting that its on. So you can’t just glance at it to see if you set it on high or low you have to be close enough to see the setting that the dial is pointing to. But other than that it has been great. I use mine at least twice a week and with cooler weather I will be using it even more. I would definitively recommend this crock-pot.

    I just received my new unit. We are using it for the first time right now. This report is to note details of purchase and first use.
    1: It was packaged good enough to survive UPS undamaged: Great job Amazon!
    2: Directions for use (the instructions pages), are few and nearly usless. Since they have to put them into French & Spanish as well as English, I guess they wanted to keep it VERY short.
    3: It does not say this in the listing, but it has about a 24 inch cord. This keeps their costs down: if the cord was any longer the cord would probably not be heavy enough for the load?
    4: It LOOKs great! I love the features of the well made see through top, the removable cooking dish, and the keep warm setting. Nice too that there are NO electronics to screw up: electronics hate heat and moisture….. which this would provide in spades of course.
    5: It does have the wire lid holder on the back, but it does NOT have a seal, a stretch lid latch, nor an indicator lamp on the front to say that it is turned on or not. I guess all of those items (except the indicator lamp) must be bought separately.
    6: I saw several listed “8 Qt Pots” where people were very disappointed that they were not 8 Qt at, all but barely made a 7 Qt at best. This unit IS an 8 Qt up to the top lid edge……and if you needed a large one, you will love it’s size! Real life use? (NOTES: You never want fill any pot to the very top edge, it will obviously boil over and make a MESS! So,….so make it a solid 7.5 qt? :-)) It is still a BIG pot.

    Now that I have this, and assuming that it does cook as well as others have said it would, would I buy it again? Absolutely! Enjoy!

    UPDATE on 03 Nov.2012: We have very much enjoyed using this cooker: It works very well. One thing I did not count on was how heavy the removable washable interior cook pot really is. I had no problem with it, but today, my wife just could not hang on and broke it: it gets very slippery when ever it is wet or soapy! A new pot is $25 + shipping= cost new. So, the only way to go is just buy another new one I guess. I looked around carefully, and anything from 5.5 qt up through 8.5 qt show a solid serious weight of 15 to 20#, so the pot is going to be “heavy” in all of them. I am so glad I did not buy a $100+ type priced unit, at this rate of 1 per 13 months….. that could get expensive. (humor)

    I had a smaller slow cooker and purchased this larger one at Amazon simply because I’m accustomed to cooking for many days and freezing the extra. I’m fairly new at slow cooking. This cooker not only sloved my problem but also turned out to be a very good cooker. Of course, I first looked at it’s reviews and Consumer Reports rating. Exceptional slow cooker at an exceptional price.
