Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooches23 Even better than my last one!
I received this as a gift and loving it so far. Just sad to finally retire my previous digital crockpot after ten years! Crockpot brand is made to last and I am very loyal. This new crockpot is really nice with its beautiful appearance, black porcelain insert (my old white one shows cracks really bad), ability to turn directly to warm (for plugging back in once at your destination), many timer options, and automatically switching to warm at end of cook time. I agree with the other reviewer, the cord is too short- but that's my only complaint. Happy crock-potting!

Rated 1 out of 5 by tracy34 Only works if I stay home and watch it
Pretty disappointed with this crockpot. The buttons say "warm", "low", and "high". But really they should say "high", "higher", and "super high". I can only use this if I'm home and available to unplug it every hour, so it can cool down. Even on the "warm" setting it boils everything.
I thought the brand CrockPot was a sure thing and I stupidly threw away my receipt and box before using it a couple times. Now I'm stuck with this lemon. Frustrating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momof6 I love this thing!!
I love the ability to program exactly how long I want my meal to cook- not just have an every-two-hours increments available like other Smart Pots. After it cooks perfectly, this crock pot then switches to warm, and keeps the food perfect for when you are ready to eat! SO convenient and efficient.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Todd0816 Not Programable
Don't confuse this with a programmable crackpot. You still need to switch it from Hi to Low. It does automatically switch to warm after done cooking... this is a nice feature.. but I bought it thinking I could program it to cook for an hour on high.... then switch to low. fo "X" many hours.. then it would switch to warm when that was done... I would have bought a cheaper model if I had known. The switching to warm is a nice feature.. but not nearly as useful as changing temps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Slowcooker66 Cord is short
I Like the size of the 6 qt crockpot. But the cord is way too Short. And the little crockpot is not stable with only 3 bumps for legs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by angelmat Bruns on low
I have a recipe i cook every week in the crockpot and it takes 7 hours, so I bought this programmable timer to stop having to be there or worry about it. This recipe does not work in this new crockpot. I went on line to see what could be the issue and read another's review that said, "The buttons say "warm", "low", and "high". But really they should say "high", "higher", and "super high". This is true the crockpot burns the food on the edges and is not cooked in the middle. The edges are burned black and it ruins the whole batch. This recipe is only for low, but low is way too high on this mode; so is keep warm feature. The next time I used the crockpot I monitored it to see what was happeningi. It was hissing and spitting and burning after four hours and it was not cooked. I stirred it and waited another 30 minutes but it was just burning and smelling bad. It was not cooked in the center. It was burnt on the edges. This recipe is steel cut oatmeal and my old crockpot is faithful to do its job every week. It has always come out the same and it is always 7 hours. I realize crockpots vary in time of cooking by model and brand, but the oatmeal is cooked and not burned on the edges.
This crockpot does not cook all the way to the middle no matter the time. The heat is high but not even. I thought at first it was the oval design, but no after watching it and reading the other review it all made sense. I agree the cord is too short as another reviewer said and it can only be programmed for one temperature. I am very disappointed, but grateful I have the box and receipt. I still like crockpot but this model has issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rhitai Crock-pot keeps on going, and going and going
This is the most similar model to what I actually have, which is SCC653. In fact it's so old that it says Rival Crock-Pot on it which indicates that it was made before Crock-pot was made into it's own brand in 2005. I am assuming that it's one of the first digital crock pots made. Because the lid broke and I cannot get a replacement lid I use plastic wrap and foil to keep the heat in, it works ok. I have used this crock pot for my own home but also for fundraising for my children's athletic program. I can always count on it to cook my meals as intended. My favorite part is being able to start something the night before or even early in the day and come home to a hot meal that is just right, because it automatically keeps it hot after the specified cooking time. One thing I've learned is because of that to only use a portion of the run time because it will keep cooking even on warm. The other thing that is great, is this think keeps on going. I keep imagining I will be able to get one of the newer digital ones that are a little more specialized but this crock pot is built to last and I'm not going to replace it if it doesn't need to be yet.
