Crock-Pot® 6.5-Quart Slow Cooker with eLume™ Touchscreen
My initial Crock-Pot did not work after using it a few times. I returned it and was given an option of having another one of the same model or selection another model. I chose to give it another try and I'm glad that I did. This one works like a charm. I've made it a point to really work it. From soups to pulled pork and everything came out like a charm. So glad that I gave it a second chance and the customer service person was so accommodating.

slow cooker crock pot
I love this product it is larger than a lot of the other crock pots plus I love that I can set how many hours I want it to cook and how long. Then it automatically switches t warm when the cooking time is done. I would Highly recommend this product. I love it!

Doesn't get hot enough and turns itself off!
I have owned slow cookers for more than 35 years. I bought this one to replace one I had worn out. I was attacted to the features; however, this unit doesn't get hot enough to cook. I can't get beans done, even after hours of cooking. The lid doesn't seem to fit. Also sometimes it we come in and find it has turned itself off without completing the cooking time we set. I'm wondering if I got a lemon. I need to replace this one and am reluctant to purchase the same brand.

I have only used it once so far. My chicken cacciatore came out perfect. I did add a bit more white wine than the recipe called for, plus the last hour of cooking a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, which made it perfect! The black stoneware is very heavy and fine quality. All my kitchen counter top cooking items, stove, dishwasher and refrigerator are black, so this unit matches nicely! A friend has a much cheaper, non digital panel crock-pot and asked me why I needed this model. My answer was.."I like looking at the colored flashing numbers". He is right, the manual models do the same thing, but if you want the best, this one's for you. I used the 20% off coupon.

Excellent Slow Cooker
I have been using slow cookers for several years. I purchased this after reading the review in Cooks Illustrated, which gave this model its highest rating. I have used it now for three months and agree it is a superior slow cooker. It can maintain a high temperature without burning items. It is very reliable and easy to clean. I often cook meals and beans in this slow cooker. On one occasion I returned home several hours later than I had planned. The unit had switched from cooking to keep warm. I was expecting mush but was pleasantly surprise to find that the keep warm heating did not turn the meal into mush It was perfect. I highly recommended this slow cooker,

attractive just not functional
The first time I received this item it came chipped. Disappointed I exchanged it for another one in store. When I went to use the new one several of the buttons did not work. I returned it for the second time. Disappointed as this is a very attractive crock pot. With multiple complaints regarding the same problem I don't know why crock pot does not address this.

I registered for this Crock-Pot for my wedding. I was so excited when we opened it because a few weeks prior my husband had melted the bottom of my old one. When I went to use it the first time it worked great! I loved it! I went to use it a second time and it never heated up. I came home from work to raw dinner even though the display was telling me it was on and it was cooking. I am very disappointed in this Crock-Pot so I went out and got myself the original Crock-Pot with nothing fancy on it, works like a charm!
I wanted to be a believer of this cooker so bad!
