Crock-Pot 3.5-Quart Casserole Crock Slow Cooker

Make-Ahead Meals and Easy Entertaining
After a long day, come home to hot-and-ready meals like creamy chicken casserole, flavorful lasagna, or savory baby-back ribs. Simply add ingredients to the stoneware, secure the lid, and turn the heat to Low or High for slow, thorough cooking. The Casserole Crock makes it easy to enjoy delicious recipes, robust and tantalizing flavors, and effortless meals from the comfort of home.
The Casserole Crock slow cooker also frees up additional cooking space when entertaining, which can be particularly helpful during the holidays when space is limited. Use the conventional oven for the turkey and potatoes, while the Casserole Crock slow cooker takes care of the green bean casserole or other favorite dish. Don't forget dessert--from mouthwatering strawberry-rhubarb crisps to blueberry cobblers, this slow cooker's got you covered there, too.
Travel Friendly--with Locking Lid for Peace of Mind
Whether it's a casual potluck or an elegant buffet, the Casserole Crock slow cooker makes transporting meals a snap. The unit's portable design includes an onboard cord wrap for tidy travel, a gasket lid liner on the inside for a tight seal, and two side clamps that hook from the lid to the base and clamp down, locking the lid in place. No need to worry about spills or sloshing about; now you can breathe easy when taking those turns or heading uphill.
A true performer, the Casserole Crock slow cooker can also be used as a server (no need to dirty a second dish). Simply unlock and remove the lid, plug in the slow cooker, and turn the dial to "warm" to keep food at a ready-to-serve temperature. The slow cooker also provides large side handles for safe, secure transport from the car to the kitchen or buffet and back again.
For added versatility, you can cook any number of family-favorite recipes in your full-size oven, then transport the stoneware from the oven to the Casserole Crock heating base for safe, easy travel and/or to keep the dish warm once dinner is served.
Portable Design for Ease and Versatility
The Casserole Crock slow cooker's manual control knob allows for setting the temperature to Low, High, or Warm, and its removable stoneware and locking lid clean up easily by hand or in the dishwasher. Housed in navy blue with white accents, the attractive slow cooker makes an elegant choice for any social gathering.

The only negative I can see is that the plastic clasps on each end which make this slow cooker transportable are plastic and seem to be cheaply made; so is the handle on the lid. I expect them to possibly break sooner rather than later. However, they may be better than I think, and will hopefully last; I plan to be putting this appliance to the test over and over, so I’ll update the review after a few dozen tests. Even if the plastic parts do break, the shape and size of this slow cooker are so good, I’ll just get out my super glue. I would recommend this Crock-Pot to everyone.
Now for the few cons of the unit... This thing is big and will take up a lot of counter space. And its not light to carry around. The ceramic insert is very large and heavy, and you will have to take extra care washing it in a regular sink. Also, if you're someone that likes using those great new crock pot liners that save you a lot of scrubbing, ( I am one), you will have to forget about them with this thing, at least for the time being. They're just not designed for a big rectangular unit and tear when tried. That means every time you use it, you will have to wash it. And I repeat, this insert is big and ungainly to handle, especially with wet hands. Finally, this thing has one of those horribly aggravating short cords on it. Just barely a foot and half long. So you will need to park this thing very close to an outlet or use an extension cord.. Other than these few short comings, this new fangled machine is a pleasure to use in many ways over the standard slow cooker. And it has the added advantage of being built for cook and carry with good solid handles on it. As stated before, I actually think it cooks better and more evenly. As long as you have the room, don't mind having to always scrub it, and figure you will make use of toting its around feature, this thing actually works very well and is a quality appliance... : )
Update: I still like the size and shape of this cooker. But now that I have had it for some time now I have noticed that it can sometimes cook certain things way too slowly, even when its on high. I have had some meats and veggies in this that have cooked to a turn in 4 hours on high in my regular crock that have still needed more time in this even after 5 hours or more. It's frustrated me on a number of occasions, while other times it has done a fine job. I think it comes down to certain foods just needing the cozy atmosphere of a regular oval crock over being more spread out in this one. It seems to be particularly bad with veggies like potatoes and carrots that I have pulled out of it and finished off myself for they have taken so long. This is still a nice crock for certain things and the other advantages it carries. But its still very hard to clean, (a real pain), still has no cooking bags that fit it, and most of all doesn't cook certain things very well, or quick enough. Not recommended as the only crock pot in your kitchen for sure.. : )
Some say, that it gets hot on the counter, and it does but not anything that would damage my counter, which is made to handle heat. And no more heat than any other crock.
The seal is great and I love the travel seal locks on the lid. The size is just what I wanted. It's not programmable, but I have always set a cook timer.
My baby-back ribs fit in this style, better than the taller oval crock that I have.
Other brands, that I've bought in the past, seem like they would never heat up, and that is why they may say not to put frozen meat in them.
This brand works perfect with frozen or fresh meats. The price is very good and competitive, so I will be buying more as gifts.
Thanks for reading my review. I read many reviews prior to buying it, and even though there were a few negative ones. I still bought it, because it's a trusted brand and with Amazon Prime, I never feel as though I am taking a risk.
