Rated 1 out of 5 by Cassi cooks too hot!!!
I originally had the Versaware Pro Crock-pot...had it for 6 years until my husband dropped the lid on the floor and it broke. I guess the model was so old that we couldn't even get replacement lids for it. I'm the crazy full time working mom who does the weeks worth of frozen crockpot meals!!! And it worked great with the Versaware. Well, now I have had this model for a couple months and it always fails.....every single one of my meals has burned or dried out....no matter how much liquid I put in it!!! I'm so bummed. The time of making my life easier has come to an end because my crockpot doesn't cook well!!!! I want the Versaware back!!! And my money back for this model that works poorly. There is no warm, low, and high setting....its high, higher, and very high!!!!

My mom wanted a crock pot with the digital timer and the little dipper was a great perk! She loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CookingGal Best kitchen purchase!
We have had our Crock Pot 2 weeks now and it has become a member of our family. The first thing I ever made was Meatballs and our guests couldn't get enough! I even had guests try to walk off with my Crock Pot when they saw how convenient is it. BBQ pulled pork is amazing in it! As I type i'm making mashed potatoes in it and the house smells amazing! It is easy to clean, light compared to others, and nice looking which helps when using at a party. I would say the only thing I would change is that it gets very hot on the outside so I have to be sure to put it far back on my counter so my son can't reach it. I off set that con with the mini warmer that comes with it! Love it! I can honestly say I feel comfortable to set it and forget about it while i'm at work. Because of this Crock Pot I now serve homemade meals....no more fast food!

Rated 4 out of 5 by rhitai Crock-pot keeps on going, and going and going
This is the most similar model to what I actually have, which is SCC653. In fact it's so old that it says Rival Crock-Pot on it which indicates that it was made before Crock-pot was made into it's own brand in 2005. I am assuming that it's one of the first digital crock pots made. Because the lid broke and I cannot get a replacement lid I use plastic wrap and foil to keep the heat in, it works ok. I have used this crock pot for my own home but also for fundraising for my children's athletic program. I can always count on it to cook my meals as intended. My favorite part is being able to start something the night before or even early in the day and come home to a hot meal that is just right, because it automatically keeps it hot after the specified cooking time. One thing I've learned is because of that to only use a portion of the run time because it will keep cooking even on warm. The other thing that is great, is this think keeps on going. I keep imagining I will be able to get one of the newer digital ones that are a little more specialized but this crock pot is built to last and I'm not going to replace it if it doesn't need to be yet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Battleax RUNS HOT
I love the programing BUT it runs HOT no matter what setting you put it on, even on low it burns my food :( I just emailed company and see what they will do about it but looks like I am going to have to use my smaller/older faithful crock until then. About one third of tonights dinner was burned! note: It starts to burn shortly after plugging it in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooches23 Even better than my last one!
I received this as a gift and loving it so far. Just sad to finally retire my previous digital crockpot after ten years! Crockpot brand is made to last and I am very loyal. This new crockpot is really nice with its beautiful appearance, black porcelain insert (my old white one shows cracks really bad), ability to turn directly to warm (for plugging back in once at your destination), many timer options, and automatically switching to warm at end of cook time. I agree with the other reviewer, the cord is too short- but that's my only complaint. Happy crock-potting!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kare For now "good" a little disappointed
Just made my 5 meal in this Crock Pot and the ceramic insert cracked. I'm ordering a replacement and will see if it was a fluke. Up until now very happy. Does seem to run a little hot, even on low.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jb04 Worst crockpot ever!
I received this crock pot as a wedding gift, and it is by far the worst crock pot I have ever owned. I can't even cook a roast on warm for 4 hrs without it burning it. I would not recommend this crock pot to anyone, don't waste your time or money. I will be purchasing a new crock pot, but definitely not the crock pot brand.
