Crock-Pot’s Programmable slow cooker is a 6-quart programmable crock pot with an oval shaped stoneware cooker and digital timer. Although smaller than the average capacity of the crock-pots on this list, it helps that the slow cooker’s pot is oval-shaped to accommodate more ingredients. It’s big enough to take on a complete meal for 7 people. The pot has a locking lid so it’s nice and secure while cooking. The digital controls are programmable and you have the choice to set the cooking time between 30 minutes and 20 hours.
This slow cooker also turns on the warm setting automatically as soon as cooking is completed. The oval stoneware is removable for easy cleaning and it doubles as a serving dish too! We love how easy to use and dependable this crock-pot is. The timer is great if you’re in a rush and you have no time keeping an eye on the food as it cooks. You can customize the heating setting to create perfectly cooked dishes every time. Some of the components are removable and dishwasher safe, which is always a plus!
As for the downsides, most complaints by Amazon users revolve around the overall quality of the crock-pot. Some says certain components are falling apart, others claim theirs stopped working after a few uses. We did not encounter the same issue but these are something worth noting before choosing this product. Our only gripe is the 30-day guarantee; we wish it’s longer just to give us more time to observe how the unit works after more than a month of use.
