Rated 4 out of 5 by scrupulous New design
The new Crock Pot with the i-stir mechanism, is very helpful. I think that overall the unit works very well. 2 things frustrate me about the unit. The first is the timer. You can only choose the heat setting by the number of hours. If less hours, it defaults to high, if more hours, it defaults to low. When it is on the keep warm setting, either after completing the cycle or by selecting it, it continues to maintain a heat level that boils the meal. For keep warm, it seems a little high. The stirring mechanism works very well. I have not been able to use the paddle, due to the thickness of my stews/soups. I use the fork-like attachment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lemonn An outstanding product!
I am not the cook in this house, but I helped my wife set the slow cooker up for the first meal it was going to produce. Everything worked as the instructions stated, and the stew was fabulous!. My wife was very pleased to have the stirring done automatically, and really liked being able to serve the food straight from the slow-cooker with no extra fuss. The timer worked beautifully and had the meal hot when the warm light came on. We need more meals to check the other settings, but we are really satisfied for now!

I've used Crock Pots for many years. The newest one has both the time cooking that goes to warm automatically when the time expires, as well as the Low/Med/High selection. The only problem is that you can't use the timed cooking for under 6 hrs. That would have been very useful for me.

I had an old crockpot that was just a plug and go kind. When we moved we left it behind and decided to get a new one that had adjustments. The stirring feature on this is brilliant as after it's done cooking it automatically switches to warm mode and then keeps stirring the food. This way if I am running late or have a longer day at work I know that our dinner is still going to be perfect. I highly recommend this crockpot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Annmarie Stopped working in less than one year
I bought this for my daughter for Christmas 2013. So now it is the beginning of December 2014. Timer no longer works. My daughter came home from work last week and the crockpot was on warm and nothing had cooked. She tried it again today and the timer is shot. Very angry since I just sent my youngest daughter the same one for this Christmas. What's going to happen to hers?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rich1947 The best one yet!
I've had several Crock-Pot slow cookers and the convenience of a slow cooker can't be beat. However, they all have had only low and high settings. Either your meal was ready in four to six hours or eight to ten hours. When you leave for work in the morning, you are usually home long after the slow cooker is finished preparing your meal. The result usually is either an overcooked/soggy or dried out dinner.
This Crock-Pot with "Smart Cook Technology" is the answer to this problem. Set the time you want dinner ready and Shazam! It's ready when you get home. I love it! Never had a dried out dinner since I have started using it.

I love crock pot cooking. This pot has been reliable for the past two years. I meets all of my expectations and makes a very busy life a little bit simpler.
For the money, I love it. Who cares if its digital or not, it has the same results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annee Love this Crock-Pot
This is actually my 4th Crock-Pot since the 1970s. The first two were replaced when newer features were introduced, but they still worked fine. I purchased my third Crock-Pot because I wanted to downsize; as it turns out I was very disappointed in that 4-quart Crock-Pot because it boiled the food while on LOW, so I purchased this digital model (the only difference is the color; mine is black and matches other appliances). I am VERY HAPPY with this Crock-pot that has the digital control panel. I cooked a pot roast on Low and when it was done it automatically switched to Warm and kept the food ready until it was time to serve it. I love the oval shape. It is much better for cooking roasts and other items that don't fit easily into a round shape. I had considered buying another brand, but now I am very happy that I stayed with Crock-Pot.
