Rated 5 out of 5 by 3Deuce27 Great addition to my selection of Crocks
I just saw this cooker the other day and thought 'What a great idea'.
Went back to buy one and they were all sold out, big stack sold out in less then two days. I finally found one in Blue a week later in another town.
Last night I made the Cheesy Chicken recipe on the box and in the little included recipe book. I modified it to make it a Mexican style chicken/rice/vegetable dish with Black beans, chilies, and topped by Mexican cheeses and pickled and sliced Jalapenos. Delicious and a big hit in easy to serve stoneware crock.
I will buy another for making a dessert like an Apple Crisp to go with dinner.
Advantages; Less heat to keep living space cooler in Summer.
Lower electric use.
Sealed lid for no transport spills and preserving moisture. Don't lock lid while cooking.
9"x13" crock for easy portions slicing and serving.
Cooks quick on high, for those late preps. I was late getting started on Sundays 5:30 dinner time. Got the ingredients together at about 2:15 and it was done by 5:00. Your results on 'High' will vary depending ingredients and moisture content.
Note; I always pre-cook Chicken/Turkey in the microwave before adding to the crock. I use the defrost setting so as not to over cook, but allowing for a safe temperature to reduce/eliminate the chance of 'Food-Borne' illness from bacteria.

Rated 4 out of 5 by srbooth Lightweight and easy to clean
Looks great, cooked very even, lightweight so very portable so great for potlucks and came clean ridiculously easy! My first time using I had browned cheese that wiped out easily. Recipe book has some good ideas but normal slow cooker recipes take some minor conversions to fit in the shalow rectangular casserole dish if you use this as your only slow cooker. I have multiple so this is not a problem for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nancy4289 Great Addition to the Kitchen!
The crockpot casserole has been a great addition to our kitchen. We use our standard crockpot regularly but the casserole crockpot has made it possible to prepare other other types of dishes that I might normally have cooked in the oven in the crockpot instead. It is wonderful to be able to do the prep for these meals early and have dinner ready when we get home. The casserole crockpot is easy to use and works well. We have made several dishes including stuffed peppers and hashbrown casserole and they came out great. I received the crockpot as a sample for review but highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by casserina1 The BEST slow cooker!!!
I can't talk about this Crock Pot more!! I absolutely love it! I have made lasagna, pot roast, homemade Mac &Cheese, hash brown casserole, chicken pot pie and spaghetti so far and each dish turned out delicious. The programmable feature is great! I don't have to worry if I get home later than expected because dinner isn't still cooking it's switched to warm after the initial temperature setting and hours to cook. The fact this has an attractive ceramic dish with a locking lid is another plus because you can cook and serve the dish in one dish or easily take to a party. The crock pot in general has a very nice appearance. I would recommend this crock pot to everyone. I promise you that you will never want another slow cooker besides this programmable crock pot. I have a new love for slow cooking!! If you've never used a crockpot this should be the one to start and you will never need to try another!! Thank you for allowing me to sample this product!!!!

I'm more of a casual user of the pot, maybe once a month for parties and potlucks. This was great for taking my always requested chicken buffalo cheese deep for Halloween and will be using it for mashed potatoes at the family Thanksgiving. The locking lid makes all the difference.
One thing I would love to see from the designers at Crock-Pot, a divided insert for the casserole crock pot so you can have two separate dishes going at once.

I received a couple of weeks ago and yesterday was the first time I used it. I fell in love with this Crock Pot, it is simply wonderful. I had purchased pre smoked ribs and needed to heat then thru, well I put them in with about 1/2 cup water, just enough to put moisture back into the ribs, they turned out great, everyone was so impressed, thank you for making me look so good! i also used another one of my Crock Pots, to hold the Mashed Potato's to keep them warm and a third one for the green beans with almonds. I love Crock Pot cooking!

Rated 1 out of 5 by crockqueen1 Hairline Fracture in Crock only after 4 uses
I am the Crockpot Queen, I saw the Casserole Crock-pot and just had to have it, I was so excited, I posted pictures of it and said I was very excited. This crockpot made it number 13 in my crockpot family, I have various crockpots that I use every week, every Football Sunday I have at least 6 of them in use. Last night I used the Casserole Crockpot for only the 4th time, when I was cleaning it I noticed a hairline fracture in the crock, I was so disappointed, I just couldn't believe it. Some of my crockpots are 20 years old and I have never had a problem with any of the crocks cracking. Very disappointed, I had such high hopes for this Crock-pot....

Rated 5 out of 5 by zoe8 Delighted to have a new way to make a great lasagne!
I used this for the first time today to make a fabulous lasagne, using: whole wheat pasta uncooked in the recipe, my own sauce and lots of vegetables. The results are superb, cooked on the low setting for 3 hours. Moist, and delicious but holds its shape when cut.
The one feature I would like to see on this appliance is an automatic timer to turn the appliance off when not home to do it. For the price, however, you cannot beat the quality of this rectangular cooker. Looks beautiful on the table.
