"This is a must-have."

I have used this Crock-Pot a dozen times since writing my review. And there's just a single pot to scrub at the end! I've used it more than a handful of times already, and haven't had any issues. Remember, ALL slow cookers get HOT on the outside as does this one. I mean, I'm all for electronic gadgets in the kitchen. I'm used to cook once a week for 5 days, you call it meal prep. But, as I'm sure most pressure cooker owners do, we survived.

Presto 06012 Final Thoughts

"Live long and be HAPPY."

I'll be the first to admit that I didn't count on the sheer size of the thing. I hate washing it but food is done faster and better. It is also more aesthetically pleasing, if that matters at all. I put the filet on the rack and cooked it for 4 minutes. So really your cooking space is more like 2 quarts, like a small sauce pan. For a long time, I wasn't a believer. Basically if you follow Youtubers recipes, it's foolproof.

Presto 06011 First Impressions

"This thing is huge."

I've been using the 6 qt IP, but always had way too much food left over. Nice and BIG, of course, and as other reviews mentioned, HOT! One purchase at a brick and mortar store. I let it release naturally and have a perfectly cooked, tasty meal every time. Works fine, but now, with this one, i have the best of both worlds. And you'll have to do that with any slow cooker. Then you've got the 6qt pot, which is like the big pots you use to boil pasta.

Presto 06011 Final Thoughts

"Practically rinses clean."

I cooked two racks of BBQ pork back ribs. So I did my research and bought it, DUO nova. That was the great thing about crockpots. The food I prepared didn't stick to the stoneware and it was super easy to clean. Buy from Amazon, pay a few dollars more, get superb service if something goes wrong. This Crock-Pot holds a LOT of food! First, our lid came with a hole in it.

"This is wonderful!"

Plug it in and let it cook while you are doing other things. Just don't lock the lid while you're cooking! Should things change, I most definitely will update. And you know, it can make like 2 gallons of yogurt or porridge or something, so. At the time, it was just my wife and I and our two-year-old daughter. And, I did buy two from there originally. You can also put the stoneware and the glass lid in the dishwasher.

Calphalon SCCLD1 Final Thoughts

"And it is so easy to use!"

It's a perfect size for just the wife and myself. It will hold slightly more but the lid would then touch the liquid. One purchase at a brick and mortar store. This is so easy to use, and it's the perfect size for one or two people. UPDATED- So I finally got the 6QT and oh. This is so easy to use, and it's the perfect size for one or two people. The stoneware liner is easy to clean and food is NOT sticking to the sides or bottom.

Works fine, but now, with this one, i have the best of both worlds. Back to your regular programming with the original review. So exciting, because I don't have an oven. This is so easy to use, and it's the perfect size for one or two people. I'll leave the visualization to you. For a long time, I wasn't a believer. Even so, I purchased a third because it does perform well overall.

"Highly recommend!"

That was the great thing about crockpots. After 7 months with it, I am desperate to trade my 3Qt for the 6QT. I bought the 3 qt mini for use in our camping trailer. It gets substantially hotter on one lower end than the other. After the test, I decided to try my first dish. Easy to clean, durable, and easy to use. UPDATED- So I finally got the 6QT and oh.

Hamilton Beach 33662 Final Thoughts

"I have a smaller 1."

Supposedly, the glass lid is also dishwasher safe but I just wash it by hand. First, our lid came with a hole in it. Worked the first use, but will have to see over time, based on some reviews. I am effectively cooking for two now--with manageable left-overs. However, I ended up dragging it home and using it there. Still waiting to hear back from the manufactirer on both questions. Warmer feature is super and it does not appear to be too hot.

"Such a relief!"

I cooked two racks of BBQ pork back ribs. IP came with some of the accessories you pay for on the PPCXL. So I did my research and bought it, DUO nova. This is my third purchase of this product. Great to make soups as 3 qts is enough for the day w pleanty of leftovers. I would buy this exact same Crock-Pot again, it works great. It WOULD if we locked it while cooking, but that's a no-no.

"Warm is the new Low."

IP came with some of the accessories you pay for on the PPCXL. I had read they were dishwasher safe, but not 100% as they might keep flavors. It also does not have all the features that this one has. However, I ended up dragging it home and using it there. This gives me enough for 4 or 5 servings. I really like the removable, dishwasher-safe stoneware insert. Then, if you're adding the trivet, you're losing another inch of space.

I looked at this item for a long time before I finally decided to buy it. Or use it to cook something separately. It gets substantially hotter on one lower end than the other. Just don't lock the lid while you're cooking!

"I love this!"

They're all for 6QT, not a lot for 3QT. I don't know if that's a glitch or the way it is designed. Of course I said an old family recipe handed down. And there's just a single pot to scrub at the end! This gives me enough for 4 or 5 servings. This gives me enough for 4 or 5 servings. The first one worked for a couple of years and then quit.

ADs don't work on me and this also didn’t. Of course I said an old family recipe handed down. One purchase at a brick and mortar store. Love this size and not too heavy to wash for an old lady with arthritic hands. I had never really used a crockpot before and it was super easy to set up and use.
