VERDICT

This is an all-around quality crockpot that's perfect for outdoor use. The Versatility slow cooker works best for small families.

The West Bend 84915G is a portable slow cooker that comes with its own insulated tote! This is a basic, no frills slow cooker that you can take outdoors. With a capacity of 5 quart, the 84915G is not as large as indoor slow cooker but using this unit, you can whip up your favorite stews and soups in a jiffy. It’s pretty cute too thanks to its quirky designed exterior and matching tote.

The 84915G also features a “transport” lid, which is basically a thick, plastic lid that you can stow in small spaces. The lid also locks in place, preventing spills during transit. The base of the 84915G can also double as a light duty griddle. All of the crock-pot’s non-electrical parts are dishwasher safe so clean up is just As quick and easy.

As for the downsides, the features are not worth writing home about. Most of the crock-pots at this price point come with programmable controls and other extras, something that’s lacking on the 84915G, which makes this model pretty pricey for what it is. Also, since this product is not designed for heavy cooking, it’s not the most durable slow cookers you can find on the market. Unless you’re looking for a travel-friendly crock pot, the 84915G might not appeal to everyone.
