I've wanted a 4 qt programmable for years now and i finally got one as an early Christmas present. So far I've used it once but thought I'd comment on it while it's fresh in my head.

Pros:
-food seemed evenly cooked,
-the stay cool handles did actually stay cool (but i only cooked it for 7 hrs on low),
-cord wraps underneath crock pot,
-very chic digital white countdown display,
-shifts to warm,
-4 loud beeps when done,
-looks pretty on the counter,
- no plastic parts on the interior,
- lid and crock dishwasher safe,
- ceramic interior, not Teflon.

Cons:
-only programmable in 30 minute increments,
-shifts to warm when completed but here's the catch, it only shifts to warm for 4 hours. It might not be a big deal breaker, but if you work 4-10s you might be in a pickle
-power cord 'snaps' into place, and i wonder if the prong will eventually crack, the plastic seems good for now, but i imagine the slow cooker will outlast the cord keeper.
- cord storage is a manual wrap, I was hoping for a retractable cord storage feature for $80 retail.
- can't store food in the crockpot (not a deal breaker to me, but it is to my mom).

Overall it looks REALLY sexy - but $80 is steep. If it wasn't a present I would have kept the programmable 4 qt i picked up from Kohls for $20, more simplified, but its $60 cheaper :-)

Pros:
Very nice looking unit.

Digital display is bright and controls are easy to use.

The power cord stores underneath the appliance.

Cons:
"Low" setting cooks a bit high. My test steel cut oats (cooked exactly to recipe directions) was scorched at edges of the crock where the elements heated it up. Not so in my old Rival 4 qt manual.

On my unit, the lid's stainless steel ring had a bump where it joined, so fit was loose. My test batch of oats were a little dryer than they should have been.

The unit had a large sticker touting its features and benefits just above the controls. The glue stayed on my unit when the sticker was removed. Took an enormous amount of time and effort to remove the glue residue -- even glu-gone wouldn't touch it.

The crock was very heavy -- much heavier than the crock on my Rival.

In sum, though the picture is nice, this was a disappointing product for me.

Easy to use and works exactly as described. It's the perfect size for 2 or 3 people. I like the removable crock and the ability to change the temperature and/or time without canceling out the settings entirely. What I don't like is the metal exterior. IT GETS AWFULLY HOT! The first time I used it I touched the exterior for a few seconds and my fingers stung for about an hour. The handles should be larger to ensure you don't burn yourself. It gets so hot that I would hesitate to use this cooker if I had small children or guests in the house. This issue is its only flaw, but it is such a concern that I would reduce the rating to 31/2 stars if I could.

This is my third crock pot in my life. The first was a large Hamilton Beach (6 quart, programmable). That was a real beauty, however, I don't cook large amounts. So then I tried an itty bitty Hamilton Beach (like for dips). It was great until it died a month after use.

I wanted a crock with a timer, because all the small crocks without a timer worry me when I'm at work. There *are* no crocks, to my knowledge, that are in the 1.5-2 quart range with a timer. Hamilton Beach only makes them with a timer at 5 or 6 quarts. So I thought I'd take my chances with this one.

I also heard that you can salvage crocks by putting them inside a larger crock, so I thought I'd get two crocks for the price of one by buying this one. A 4 quart crock, and I could also put my itty bitty crock inside it if I wanted a personal serving.

Well, it does fit. But that's about the only good thing.

- The seal at the top isn't very good. I miss my old large crock which had some kind of rubbery seal which really worked well. This is just metal on ceramic.
- It smells to high heaven. I'm not sure if it will fade in time or what. It has me worried about what could possibly be gassing and whether it's entering my food.
- The cord is super-short. The only place I could find to put it in my apartment where it would actually reach an outlet is on the floor, which is not ideal for cooking. Do I *really* want an extension cord in the kitchen?
- It seems quite slow to heat. Which is surprising because others say theirs heated really quickly. Maybe they vary a lot by unit.

It's okay I guess, and I do appreciate the relatively small footprint (I live in NYC!). However, I think it will have to go back. I'll just dig out my old massive Hamilton Beach from storage or even go back to the small kind without a timer.

Received this 3 or 4 weeks ago. Only used it once so far but I think its perfect for my myself and husband. Its a perfect size for the 2 of us or for a small family. I really like the digital programing on it.
