Crock-Pot® Cook & Carry™ Manual Slow Cooker, Silver
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).

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.

Had this one now for a few years. Great cooker. It's nice to be able to program it and have it ready when you get home. Also great for when you are taking something to a party. #CrockPotContest

Great for Family Gatherings!
I love this Crock Pot! It's large enough for big family meals/gatherings. It's also easy to bring it to the gatherings, I don't have to worry about the meal swishing and splashing while driving or carrying!

Crock-Pot Cook & Carry Manual Slow Cooker, Silver
The cook and carry slow cooker I have is very well used. I own and operate an in home Child care center and work with 6 kids (ages 2 to 5) from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. so as you can imagine my time and energy outside of work hours is zapped! That made dinners around our house more along the lines of fast food. Then on my mother's advice I purchased my slow cooker and my world changed! Away went the boxed pizza dinners and such. I made myself a promise that I would make dinner in the crock pot at least 3 nights a week, and the best part is I can let the kids help "load" the machine, they measure and estimate, which plays right into our curriculum. I then started following a woman online that vowed to do nothing but Crock Pot cooking for 1 whole year and my life has never been the same since. I chose this model because of its locking lid ,it even came with it's own snapped on serving spoon! It cooks nice and evenly. I love the warm cycle. Clean up is so easy as the center pulls out for ease.

i'm a single guy and I've heard people talk about crockpots. I decided to get one hoping I would use it once or twice a month. After researching features I settled on this one.I have had it almost a year and use it once to twice a week!! I was so impressed with it I sent my little sister one too. This is a great product and is very well-made. The ability to adjust the time in 30 minute increments is a big plus! It's amazing how easy it is to throw meal together and have it ready when you get home!! Easy use and easy to clean! I tell people about it all the time! Buy this one, you won't be sorry

I love this CrockPot! It is so nice to cook and be able to take things like chili or soups and know that it is not going to spill all over my car. It cooks so even and everything comes out great! LOVE IT!!!

Bought this for my wife. The crock pot was advertised with a cook book. It is pictured with it. Did not come with one. Only a few recipes inside owners manual. The reason I bought this was it had a cookbook to get you started. Disappointed. I do love using a crock pot. Its easy. And saves time We haven't had one for several years after the first one broke . Trying it again.

LOVE MY NEW CROCKPOT!
This was a housewarming gift to a dear elderly friend of mine, who writes: "I love my new crock-pot with the lock-on lid. No more spills in the back seat of the car where I have to stand on my head to clean it up or in the trunk of the car which is worse because I have to climb in and squat down so I don't bump my head (which I usually do a couple of times before I learn.) The crock-pot is a real convenience especially at this time of year (fall) when I think soup, put it on in the morning and go out and buy crackers and dinner is ready. I use it almost every day."

Gift for my son and his wife. They are very pleased with it.

Dinner is ready
I am so happy with this purchase. I've been trying to make do with a standard sized Crock Pot. Today I was able to double a recipe which will save time in the long run. I'm happy with my replacement.

Nice unit, especially for the price....
We just got this new one, as a replacement for one that got damaged in moving. We have used it once. It did a perfect job on cooking a pot roast. It worked as described and was easy to clean up. Easy cleanup is a big part of the 5 stars.
We like the locking handles so the food can be transported in the container, with out too much worry about spills enroute.

Love this Crock-pot!
I know I like the manual crock-pot b/c this is my third one. The first one lasted for years until my husband put icy-cold water into the steaming hot crock and cracked it. The second one was a 4qt in a lovely pattern. Now I have the 6 qt which is perfect for taking to potluck or cooking a lot. It is so easy to use and clean unlike some appliances!

Dependable and Convenient
I really do like this product , I purhcased the same product but in the staoinless steel, its attractive, it dependable and cooks your food according to the temperature gage but unfortunately the temperture gage reading eventually fades over time and I have a hard time trying to set the correct temperature gage to slow cook my meal.

LOVE this style of Crock-Pot! Very easy to use, clean, and store. LOVE the locking lid....a MUST in my house! The settings are simple, making it a great Crock-Pot to use, especially for those not able to fuss with a lot of extra gadgets. A great product at a great price!!

I Love my Crock Pot. Use it 2-3 times weekly.
I love my Crock Pot so much that I have bought several more for gifts for family and friends! My mother had another brand slow cooker that was digital and she hated it and I went and bought her one like I have and now she uses her Crock Pot 2-3 times weekly as well. I have had my Crock Pot for over 4 years now. and it is still going strong as the first time I used it!

Love my crockpot with travel lid!
I have been a Crock Pot user for over 40 years now. I cook foods to take to family reunions, church functions, etc. I've always been concerned about the contents of the pot spilling during the transport of it. This tight seal, side locking top prevents any spills or messes in my car. I LOVE the idea.
The instructions warn you to not cook with the lid locked, which makes sense since pressure builds up inside the pot that has to be released.
I'm purchasing a second one because I like to cook a Sunday lunch of roast or pork loin in mine, and need another one to cook peas or beans in as a side dish. This is a wonderful product!

not a slow cooker
I got this as a gift. It ruins everything, cooks way too high and fast. It actually simmers on warm setting. Filled my house with the odor of charred chicken when left for 7 hours on low as recipe suggested. Burned meatballs on warm setting!! Its going in the trash. Unless you're home with it it useless, and if you cant leave it, whats the point?

Not designed very well
!. No where in the booklet does it mention what the locking lid is for. There's an after thought 'note' in the box that warns you not to cook with the lid locked. Had to call the 800 number to find out the use for the locking lid.
2. Before the first use I washed the lid and base. Water got between the lid and the handle on the top. Had to use a screwdriver to remove the lid and empty water. Called the 800 number again and agent admitted it was a problem but did not offer a solution other than to remove the top after each use to let out the water.
I'm using the unit to make chili for dinner. As a slow cooker I'm sure it will do the job……but the above issues will be with me every time I use this cooker.
