To clarify, I am a wife and mom of 4 grown kids who's been using Crock Pots and slow cookers in varying sizes and shapes for all of my adult life. We won't say how long that's been exactly, just trust me when I say it's better than 20 years.
When my first brand new Crock Pot, this model, came I eagerly unpacked it, thrilled to have the "keep warm" setting, excited to try out a new and modern crock pot after my years of hand-me-downs and recycles from family members and tag sales. I plugged it in and it immediately began smoking. When I touched the side it was so hot that I got a blister on the inside of my thumb. I immediately called Crock Pot's 800 number and was told that I could file a legal complaint against the company for damages (and get nothing) or take a new Crock Pot. I chose to go new, and here was my fatal error.
After three uses, the "new" pot they sent to replace the old - which is a quart larger than this model (the one I first called in about) - fell apart in my hands. Literally, and just about ten minutes ago. The little lift mechanism on the lid was the first to go, crumbling as I lifted it, followed by the hinge mechanism. I grabbed the very hot glass lid. Another (smaller this time) minor burn on two fingers, and my lesson is learned. I hope you can avoid learning the hard way, as I did, and steer clear of this item!
In the past I have used both Crock Pot brand and other brands of slow cooker. This is the worst experience I have ever had with any slow cooker product. If I could go less than one star, I most certainly would.
Huzzah! My wife talked this very "late adopter" (I just got a cell phone, too) to buy this crock pot, when we found it on sale. Whole grain combined with dried bean dishes of all varieties are very quick to prepare (just throw everything in together, mix, turn on the heat and the timer and walk away for 5 to 10 hours) and very tasty the next morning when I wake up hungry for them.
I've used this about twice a week for the month that I have it. It does the above admirably. My wife made a beef stew in it which she found wonderful and, again, just the easiest to do. So, "so far, so good". Maybe I'll find some drawbacks as I get more experience. If so, I'll update this at the time. BUT for an old dog who very, very reluctantly learns new tricks, and is definitely not a typical cook (a noncook, really), this is a very functional new tool in my food life.
By the way, it's very simple to use and very quick and easy to clean up after use. Just be careful not to add very hot fluids to the heavy ceramic cooking vessel when its cold, or very cold fluids to it when it is hot, as I understand they can and do crack under such conditions. It is very heavy to lift when being cleaned, so one must use care not to drop it. But, basically, quick and easy both to use and to clean up after.
Do yourself a favor and look for a higher-rated Crock Pot! This one boils all the flavor and tenderness out of meats and recipes! UGH!

Believe the negative reviews. Stay away from this product. The keep warm setting is set higher than the high.
It burns the food.
I have had this pot for several years. I bought this pot thinking Crock Pot was a respected name in slow cookers. Let me tell you how cheaply and poorly designed this pot is. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Amazon shopper
I like the ability to time set my food. However, the lid has broken several times. I have super glued the lid back with gorilla glue this time hoping it will keep the handle on. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Amazon Customer

The hinged lid solves the problem of what to do with a hot lid. Good gimmick. WARNING--Do not bother trying to find a replacement for the crock pot bowl. They don't ship well. Read morePublished on March 28, 2013 by John
