An email back from the Hamilton Beach customer service said that the hole in the lid is intentional and designed to prevent a vacume from occuring between the glass lid and the ceramin pot insert, and affirmed that the cooker is calibrated (their word) for the hole in the lid.
I will say this product heats VERY quickly, and the exterior does get seemingly litigation-worthy hot. A small warning is stenciled in pale ink on the sides of the cooker base part about the hot surface.
The metal leads of the handles are super, super hot when the loaded slow cooker with the crock insert is working. Don't think you can nudge the cooker to another part of the kitchen island by just any part of the handles - you really gotta use the cushion part of the handle or you'll get burned.
Being that the cooker base is mainly aluminum, the base and its handles do cool down fairly quickly after it's all unplugged.
I will update this review when I learn more of how the cooker really operates. Just wanted to post this now so others won't be surprised as I was by the hole in the lid, unlike earlier and other crock pots with solid glass lids.
One reviewer mentioned that the heat calibrations were too high - I suspect that may have been the fault of the individual pot or, possibly, the user did not recognize the additional buttons on the front of the mechanism to set which pot size you are using. Additionally, they commented that the heat source was bottom only, not all around - that is typical of slow-cookers. They rely on the heat-diffusing nature of the crockery for evenness of heating.
I have had a number of slow-cookers over the years ranging from the most basic of 1970's era "Crock Pots" to expensive and high-end slow-cookers, and this one is my hands-down favorite.
I finally chucked the thing, did some research, and ended up getting this one based on the good reviews. I couldn't be more pleased. It hasn't come close to burning and works beautifully! I love the 3 sizes to choose from because often a 6-quart pot is just too big. I love setting it to cook before I go to work and when I come home having a delicious hot meal ready to go! This is what a slow-cooker is supposed to be! Thank you thank you Hamilton Beach!
