This is so basic and wonderful to use. Like a very old one I use to have years ago. Easy to keep clean. For your information, I checked the temperature on all three settings with a restaurant grade instant read thermometer. High is just above 170 degrees, low is about 155 degrees and warm is just slightly above 140 degrees. Food I have prepared so far, taste so good and I am sure it is healthier. So satisfying that you eat less. So have some containers on hand for the fridge. (I only cook for myself most of the time) The cord could be about 2 foot longer. But, a short cord from a Dollar type store took care of that. Set it to cooking in the morning or over night, doesn't matter. The liquid condenses back in to the crock for the most part.

After being "retired" for almost five years, I have realized that I'm still shopping and cooking like I did when I was working, using precooked, semi-fast, and packaged ingredients, and that grocery prices continue to climb. I live in a high desert area with extremes of climate, yet I find that my metabolism is most in balance when I eat consistent amounts of protein, in meals that are warm and savory, all year round. With those elements in mind, I decided to incorporate the use of a Slow Cooker into my meal preparation.

With all the sources of recipes on the internet and in cookbooks, I have discovered that I can spend as much or as little time on the prep as I desire, have easy clean up, and this little cooker will yield 3-4 servings, just enough for our household of two. And I can still spend most of the day in my studio.

Technical Notes:
The outside of the cooker does get hot to the touch, and there is no indicator light to remind you that it is running. I have a large silicon board that I put it on to protect my butcher block counter. I also make a note when I turn it on, and set a portable timer to remind me to check it.

There is a bit of "flutter" in the glass lid when cooking recipes that have more moisture, like soup or beans, that results in dribbles down the outside of the unit. When I turned the heat to LOW, this over bubbling stops.

As with every recipe, and small appliance there will be a trial and error period to determine your particular variables.

So far for me, after one week and four meals cooked, I am enjoying the results of "Slow" cooking, freezing leftover, and spending less, while using more fresh ingredients.

With its reasonable price, this little Three Quart crock pot would be a frugal investment even if you only use it for four of your favorite meals.

I find this a perfect size for cooking for one or two. I. use it to make oatmeal for breakfast, I use it to cook beans and lentils. It is perfect for boiling potatoes.

After having a 6.5 quart model for so long (and still do, just makes too much food), I bought two of these. Just the right size for individual dishes! I make black beans in one and rice in the other, or a meat dish in one and a potato dish in the other. No longer does my slow cooked food have to meld together and turn to moosh!

The size is big enough to feed 2-3 people. They're so inexpensive that you can buy a few and keep them going all day. I still bust out my big one once in a while.. but every week I reach for these. Right now, I have a 7 bean soup going in one and a brazed lamb dish in the other. Going to be Epic!

Lovely for this windy spring! More suitable than my old 5-Q size for one. Plus there's a "Warm" button so I don't have to keep my soup or porrige at boiling "Low". Carefully packaged, no damage at all. I love it, if you don't - LOOK AT the PRICE - you should love it. :)

Perfect size for just one person. Works very well, just as good as the larger ones. Would recommend this product.

I ordered the 2 quart crock pot thinking it'd be the perfect size to cook for two people. It would be if it actually held 2 quarts. The crock holds 5 cups, it should be 8 cups. If you need a really small crockpot I think this would be a good one. I returned it - love Amazon's return policy!

I like to slow cook meats, BBQ etc. This is perfect. It is compact, the quality is good and it cooks well. One of the best features is that I can make small quantities of things so I don't end up freezing a bunch of stuff I never get to.

I am so disappointed with my new crock pot, it breaks my heart to give such a low review. The other reviews were right, the Low setting is waaaay to hot, the high setting actually brings to an early boil and, while crock pot does not recommend using the Warm setting for cooking, it appears that this is the only one that is correct for the long term cooking.

I actually bought two, one for myself and one for a gift and, now am reconsidering if I will actually give the second to my friend. I have repackaged and they are ready for UPS pick up for a return.

Of course there is one other consideration and that is I watched the delivery of these two crock pots (in one large box) and it was actually thrown onto my steps and bounced off of the gate. So my question is whether this heating/cooking defect is from the mfg or the delivery.

I have a history of cooking with crock pot thru the years and just don't understand why all three cooking/heat elements seems to each be jacked up a notch. Certainly cannot trust a slow cooking meal while I am away and this defeats the purpose of getting this item.

Beware! This unit or size runs too hot on the "low"setting. I retired my larger 25 year old unit because I have downsized and decluttered. So far, all 4 recipes that I have made have either burned or cooked too quickly. I was awakened last night EVERY time the unit cycled because it runs so hot the food boils and the top vibrates with the steam/pressure. Technically, the unit on "low" is supposed to run at a steady low temp. The high at a "higher" temp and the mixed setting varies between the two, cycling between high and low. This pot cycles too often on the low setting, it is almost as if it is either broken or the low setting is NOT calibrated properly. To have this on "low" and hear/see food boiling is NOT what this unit or a SLOW COOKER is supposed to do.....going to be returned...going back to my old unit.....
