When I first started searching for a new crock pot, I needed something that would cook quickly and all the way through. This was the cheapest of all of the crock pots I was interested in, so I definitely took a chance on it. I am certainly glad that I did because it works perfectly and I have yet to find that it doesn't cook something exactly as I need it to.
The one and only thing that this crock pot is lacking is any type of programmable features. It would be nice to be able to set it to turn off after a certain amount of time, but the reality is that I don't think that I actually need that type of feature. I am usually around the food that I am cooking, so every feature that this has is enough for me to work with. I just know some people like to program all of their kitchen appliances these days.
I know that a lot of people will reject this crock pot simply because it is so much cheaper than the other ones out there, but I think a lot of folks would love this little appliance. As long as it lasts at least five years, I think I got a great product at an insanely low price.
