I love how easy it is to prepare meals for pot luck dinners and outings. The lid that seals making it so easy to transport was an often mentioned plus. The stoneware insert really was easy to clean. It performs as well as much higher priced slow cookers.
One of the main reason this is a best seller is because of the programmable digital controls. They are so easy to use as you can program the slow cooker to start cooking when you aren’t at home. This works especially well for beans and meals that don’t contain fresh meat.
The insert is dishwasher safe, which is a must for most of us.
The price of this slow cooker is very reasonable for all the high quality options it provides. This is a perfect replacement for an older model slow cooker.

It is recommended that the first time it is used to turn it on for 6 hours because some slow cookers have a bad smell the first time they are used, but this process will help the situation.
Some may think that the warming setting gets too hot. This will affect how long you can leave the food warming. You could cut down the cooking time to allow for this. It is important to remember though that when keeping food “warm” not to let the temperature get too low or food poisoning can occur.
