Crock-Pot® Lunch Crock® Food Warmer, Pink
I love it!
What a great idea! I am a multi slow cooker owner. I got a great deal to purchase this little warmer and I love it! It works great. I keep the base (outside) unit at work and just transport the inner container with me to refill. It is so convenient. The only issue I have with it is the inner lid, it doesn't snap on as tight as it did when I first bought it. I did "pop" during heating the 1st few times, which was nice so I didn't get burned trying to open it to eat. But, since it doesn't snap tight anymore, it doesn't pop anymore either. Other than that little issue, which I can live with, I love it! And, I get so many comments on it.

slight problem with the lid
I recently purchased this and was so excited to have it. One thing I was worried about was the lid that fits in the insert. It was so tight I was afraid of it being hard to get off with the hot food. As it turned out, no problem at all. The problem came after. Since I have used it, that lid doesn't fit tight anymore. This morning I put tomato soup in the container, put the lid on and was on my way. The bag tipped over and the soup leaked through the not so tight lid. Now, not only do I have a soupy mess to clean up, I also have to buy my lunch, which was one of the advantages I was hoping to avoid with this. I'm still trying to figure out how to deal with this, as now I am quite frustrated with it.

Perfect for the working woman.....and man!
I received the lunch crock as a gift for Christmas and have used it at work since then. It is perfect! A prefect size for leftovers and soups. No more waiting my turn for the microwave in the faculty lounge and having to stop and stir my food, heat again, to make sure it is warm all the way through. This little gadget heats is completely through....actually hot! It also heats up a lot faster than expected. I usually plug it in just an hour before I eat and it is ready to go when I am! I leave the base unit at work, then just take the insert home to clean and refill daily! Works great!

Wish I had ordered one for myself!
I ordered these as Christmas gifts for 4 teachers that I work with at an elementary school. First of all, I ordered online Monday night with standard shipping rates before considering our last day of school before Chistmas break would be Friday. WOULD I GET THEM IN TIME!?!? They were delivered Thursday afternoon! Secondly, I ordered 2 different colors...2 black and 2 pink. I didn't read anything to indicate that one color was any different from the other, except for the color. But, one color (I forget which) came with an extra container! Nice surprise! Finally, the cost!!! What a great gift for such a small price!! Best bargain of all my Christmas shopping!! When I recover from my Christmas spending, I WILL order one for myself!!

Best Christmas present I got this year!
I received this as a gift after ooh'ing and ahh'ing over it during a shopping trip a few months ago. I'm loving it as we're going through winter, it's plugged in at my desk as I write this. I agree with someone else who mentioned the internal lid popping off, but that's normal from what I've read, so it's all good. Homemade soup just tastes better warmed this way compared to the microwave, and this great little thing adds 5-10 minutes to my lunch hour that I don't have to trek across the building to the break room, wait in line for the microwave, etc. Upon reading the other reviews, I'm anxious to see what else I can try in it - leftover chinese food? Chicken? I'd love for Crock-Pot to make some suggestions that I may not be considering.

I liked this lunch crock so much I bought it for others. I plug it in and it cycles on and off as needed, no stirring required.
Be sure to secure the outer cover tightly. The inner cover pops up after some time to let steam escape.
Note that this is not a three prong appliance if your work requires that.
I bought extra inserts. They are frequently noted as "out of stock" on the website, but they are available periodically. You just need to keep checking the website and then order them when you see they are available.

Best thing ever
Received the Crock pot lunch warmer as a gift and have used it now for at least 2 years. The best thing that has ever been made. I leave the warmer portion at work on my desk, take the inside container home, fill after dinner, bring it back to work, heat the food up and have a wonderful, healthier lunch. No waiting in lines and spending too much money at the hospital cafeteria for less than appealing food. I have brought soup, chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, vegetables, lasagna, spaghetti, everything. I love having a meal that is the way I like it and tastes great. So much better than warming food in the microwave. I have recommended this product to many of my friends and coworkers. At work, we have set up a time where we meet once a week to get away from our desks and to talk other than work.

Have used it once and I love it!
Used it to warm up soup. It heated up perfectly in a couple of hours. Only a couple of things could be improved:
1. The cord is a little hard to rewind back into it's slot (but you can just leave it unwound if you like).
2. The lid is a little hard to screw on... you have to lay it on perfectly for it to catch.
Other than those 2 minor inconveniences, so far the little warmer worked like a charm... and it is so cute! :)
