Crock-Pot® 6-Quart Cook & Carry™ Manual Slow Cooker with Little Dipper® Warmer, Red
I bought this brand because my first 2 slow cookers were Crock Pots. I gave one to my mother and the stoneware on the second broke so I decided to get fancy and get one with a timer. My first 2 Crock Pots behaved similarly. This one, after first use is being returned. A meal that always took no less than 6 hours to cook was almost done after 3.5 hours on low. I changed the setting to keep warm. I checked 1 hour later and it was now boiling and the meal was burned on the sides and bottom. I've never seen anything boil in a slow cooker. Again, this was the warm setting. The outside of the appliance was too hot to touch. I saw where Crock Pot responded to another reviewer that the newer models do operate at higher temps but never acknowledged the flaw of the warm setting being hotter than low. This is a DEFECT, not a feature of a new product.

great crock pot
I needed a crock-pot that switched over to warm after cooking - this one is that and more since it has the sealable lid which makes transporting for pot-lucks etc that much easier.
My only complaint is that I recently broke the stoneware insert and I cannot find a replacement that matches this product number - any suggestions??

OK but not he best
Got this as a Christmas gift and its OK, not the best crock pot I have ever had. This unit gets WAY to hot, even on low. I have never ever in my life burnt a meal in a crock pot until using this one. Everything needs to be cooked on low and the suggested cook time decreased. The warm setting actually seems to be higher than the low one. My soup started boiling after being set to warm. The plastic clamps on the lid are very weak. I have used it twice with no issues, but he third time i tried to lock the lid one of the plastic brackets snapped in half...I definitely will not be buying another of this model once this one needs to be replaced (which, at this rate, will prob be very soon).

love the locking lid
Bought this for a party, used the warm setting.Loved it.
Used it for dinner,on the low setting and it boiled the food.
Ruined the pot roast.
Thought I set it incorrectly, tried again with chicken soup.
Only the warm setting works.

I have been using this for a few years now. It doesn't seem to have hot spots like most. I love the fact that the lid locks on so it travels well without making a mess.

Great size for larger portions
Durable, quality material with easy to use functions. The size is perfect for larger portions and even heating throughout.

This product is great.
My wife uses this when we go to our family reunion every year. It is easy to use and with the straps it keeps thing from spilling.

unable to use
We asked for and received this crock-pot for Christmas. The first time we used it, we noticed that when we turned it from high to medium that the contents continued to boil, even after an hour. We thought maybe it was a fluke and tried it again. We turned from high to warm after a couple hours and came back 45 minutes later to find the contents still boiling. We thought it must be a flaw with this one unit, but after coming on to the website, I'm seeing that this must be a manufacture error because many reviews state the same issue. I would not recommend this crock pot. We are unable to return it from where it was purchased (because of the lapsed time from purchase to use and discovering it is bad). We will be throwing this practically new appliance away.
