I absolutely love this slow cooker. A very good investment for my large family. I've made pulled pork sandwiches a few times and they came out so incredibly delicious. Works amazing and is very affordable. In my opinion this is a definite must have. I definetly recommend this.

I have been really pleased with this purchase. My last one was a 6 qt so I after it finally quit I wanted to get the largest I could afford. With 3 hungry sons, and a husband, I needed a bigger size, if there was ever gonna be any left overs for my lunch. It heats up really fast, seems to cook my recipes faster than my old one. The spoon/lid rest that doubles as a cord wrap during storage is handy. The only fault I have found with mine is there is no light indicating that it is on or the setting that its on. So you can't just glance at it to see if you set it on high or low you have to be close enough to see the setting that the dial is pointing to. But other than that it has been great. I use mine at least twice a week and with cooler weather I will be using it even more. I would definitively recommend this crock-pot....

This slow cooker works well and has features appropriate for its price point, however I opted to get a new slow cooker that has a digital timer display, has programming functions, and switches to "keep warm" when the cook time is completed. The Hamilton Beach slow cooker is lacking that feature, and I always used to worry about leaving it turned on while I would be at work all day.

I own this crockpot in black and it gets used several times a week! I wish it had a light to indicate that it is on. Cleanup isn't that bad, I usually just fill mine up with hot water and Dawn and let it soak. Be careful when washing the crock it is heavy and tends to get slippery. I have almost dropped mine several times!

This slow cooker works great for me. I tend to use it at least once a week to ensure dinner is ready when I get home from work on days that I know will be busy. I really like the versatility that a slow cooker brings to meals. I tend to stick with chicken dishes as well as soups, but I have used this for many different dishes. The one drawback is that it doesn't have any sort of timer on it.

I own this slow cooker in black and it gets used at least once a week. I love being able to put something in it n the morning and come for it to be done and ready to eat. They only thing I wished it had was a light to sow that it was on.

This crockpot has many great uses: melting chocolate bricks for candy, preparing a soup, cooking a turkey/ham/roast, reheating leftovers... and many more! I like this particular style because it has a "warm" setting with can be helpful. Would be nicer if it had a light to show that it was indeed on and working.
