Easy to clean, a good coating doesn't leave cheese, beans, or meat baked on.
Durable quality base and bowl, heats up faster than anticipated and maintains temperature very well after cooking has finished and has been turned off and unplugged.
Timer works great - set it for 6 hours on high, and it switches to warm after it finishes. Settings have been tested and proven.
2+ month update: Still works great. Throw chili together on low for 8 hours, go to bed, wake up and it's still on 'warm' and ready to throw in a thermos for the day. By far, I'm most happy about there never being condensation or water bubbling around the edge of the lid causing a mess. Definitely a great buy. Have had zero dents, scratches, or dings on the aluminum outside as other have referenced. I use it, travel with it, store it.. unless you're dropping it or throwing things at it, I can't imagine having a complaint about the quality. Very happy customer.
Update: I put in the info of my not working slow cooker on the hamiltonbeach.com website because the device is still under warranty. However, the message i got back was that I have to pay $12 in shipping to get a replacement (and this they try to convince you is a great deal because they are being SO kind by not requiring me to ship my non-working one in and to instead cut off the power cord of the old one and send in a picture as proof I'm not scamming them)...haven't decided yet what I will do, but it does seem a little weird to pay 1/3 of the price for a new version of the same shitty slow cooker that may only last a couple months (just long enough to be outside the return window and then require paying another $12 perhaps?).
I highly do not recommend buying this or other hamilton beach products.
So you have to think about what you really need when you buy an appliance like this. Paying way more for features you don't need just doesn't make sense when you'll get roughly the same service life anyway. At the very least the expected durability of anything you buy these days is entirely uncertain. We've paid close to $200 for a microwave that died in a year of normal use. We've paid $60 for a microwave that has stood up to several years of heavy use. You just never know when it comes to how long something will last and price isn't a reliable way of determining that.
So when our old Hamilton Beach slow cooker died a quick death due to a cracked crock, we went back to the same store where we bought that one and looked for a new one. The thing about it was that the old one was significantly more expensive than a basic model and had at least one feature we never used (a temperature probe for cooking meat). We decided to cut out extra features we don't need. We sometimes are forgetful so I didn't think it was a good idea to buy a manual slow cooker that doesn't shut itself off after a certain amount of time. Those save a little money but unless you are absolutely sure you'll never forget, kind of a bad idea.
This one is just right. Some of the digital models are more complicated than they should be and you have to dig the manual out if you haven't used it in a while. Maybe I'm old fashioned but you should never need the manual to set the timer. This one is just that simple. It's hard to get it wrong. The buttons and indicators are exquisitely laid out in a super logical and intuitive fashion with large print. In short, if you appreciate functional simplicity, you'll love this control panel.
1. As stated, the simple and functional control panel is great for everyone but especially for older people who might not be as great with gadgets as younger people or might just be easily confused.
2. Reasonably priced. It's priced about where it should be for the build quality and is completely competitive with other brands in that respect.
3. The lid is nice. Has a rubber gasket that helps a little to prevent spills. It's technically designed to facilitate transporting the thing with food in it (I think) but we don't use ours that way
4. Relatively nice looking. If you look closely you can see that it isn't really made that well but from a distance, it's not going to really stand out as being horribly cheap.
5. Entirely functional and does what it's supposed to.
6. The timer IS a step up from completely manual controls. And at least you can just tell it how long you want it to cook and it will do it with a minimum of fuss and programming hassle.
1. Well, it's an electrical appliance that cooks food. And it also doesn't cost much and it's also built in the era of cheap Chinese made goods. I don't like to think what could happen if something went far wrong while this thing was left unattended. Some people do literally leave these types of things on while they're at work. I wouldn't be comfortable with that. But I don't think I'd be comfortable with it no matter what. I think it's just a bad idea.
2. The base is extremely lightweight This might not be evident until you take the crock out. Then it feels like it's made of cardboard (in terms of weight). I don't know. It just feels cheap. It is cheap but it's not THAT cheap.
3. I did not see any clear information on the box as to whether or not this contains lead. If I had to guess, I'd say it probably does have some. Not exactly a selling point but probably within safe limits. I mean, who knows? It's tough to get any reliable answers about stuff like that these days.
4. Handles feel a bit flimsy. I wouldn't be surprised if they break off but time will tell. I had a model made by another manufacturer where that happened after about a year. If you use one of these about once a week for a year, that seems to be the average lifespan you can expect before something (random stuff) goes wrong.
5. Only has two rubber feet. The other two are hard plastic so it slides around easier than you might expect on a hard surfaces. This isn't a good thing with food cookers, IMO.
6. Because the timer settings are so simple, they do come with a slight inconvenience. On some digital models, you have a numerical digital display that tells you exactly how much time is remaining. Which is not insignificant. It can be a definite disadvantage. If you want to know how long you've been cooking something in this one you'll have to use an external timer.
So there you have it. These days you don't always get what you pay for. The world of slow cookers seems to be a relatively stagnant place. It doesn't seem like most people expect much more than something that is merely functional and that's what this is. It is obviously really built for occasional use. It might actually last for years if you don't use it often but we use it once a week and we've gone through exactly three Hamilton Beach ones in the last 4 years or so.
They're not really made to have any parts replaced. Even the parts you can get for them (like a new lid or new crock) isn't really worth the trouble and will cost a good portion of what a brand new one costs. What can you do? We live in the age of throwaway stuff. It's made to be cheap and convenient and utterly disposable. If you spent more than what this costs you might get something that looks and feels beefier but the fact of the matter is that it could still have a failure point somewhere that you didn't expect. This one cost about $35 at a local store. Our last one (A slightly fancier model) cost close to $50 at the same store. So we saved about $15. Not a lot but when you consider that money was paying for a feature we never used it just couldn't be justified. I MIGHT have spent more if (for example) I thought the extra money went into an actual safety feature that wasn't just a gimmick. Or maybe a slightly more solidly built base or better materials.
