This is my second crock pot (the first is still going strong although we have broken the handle off the lid, hence the newer one). It has been great but now (after exactly 3 years) it has started to randomly switch itself off. Thankfully this has always happened in the first few minutes so we haven't arrived home to find an uncooked dinner, but we can't trust it any longer. Shame. Not many large slow cookers like this to choose from, on the market, but will have a look at the Lakeland own brand one, as a number of reviewers have recommended it.

My most disappointing purchase in a long time.”
i have managed to burn everything I made in this cooker, even when the food isn't burnt it is tasteless, and I'm a really good cook (or so I'm told). In my opinion this cooker gets far too hot on the ceramic pot and the food gets a crust on it - I used this item at least 15 times and only had one lentil dish come out satisfactory, you can't really overlook puy lentils in veg stock and mushrooms though can you. Unfortunately, due to storage I didn't save the box to this cooker so I couldn't return it, this was such a dear mistake to make. I'm now happy with my Lakeland brand slow cooker.

Good slow cooker but logo became unstuck...”
by Mrs Marshall
As per the title this is a very good slow cooker but am disappointed having only purchased this a little under 2 weeks ago the logo below the buttons literally peels off. I kept pushing it back on in the first few days now it is completely off. Not what you expect when you pay this amount!! Not great at all!!

I have had quite a few slow cookers in the past, then I bought this one. I love it so much & it gets used very often.

Well after trying two slow cookers from a well known shopping channel, and after throwing out two expensive meals because they smelt like the product, I decided to try good old Lakeland. Ordered the Croc-Pot and my son picked it up, I must say the service I received was excellent, from the Durham store. Anyway decided to cook a pulled pork meal for the kids. Joint in.....turn it on to slow cook, leave it for 10 hrs and came back to one amazingly cooked pork that fell apart. And the product is so easy to clean. Excellent

Really good slow cooker, bought to replace Crockpot I have had for years. Simple to use, great results. Not the cheapest slow cooker on the market, but worth every penny, as my sister was so impressed with mine I am going to order her one for her birthday.

Awesome.......... Does everything the label says it should do. Easy to use, quickly heats up, and a huge dish allowing to cook and freeze half of the meal! Deff buy this again.

It’s my first crockpot. Already has 1 year and... meat, bread, cakes... it's fantastic when I come home after a working day and dinner is ready. What can I say more :)

Boils stews even on low setting”
I bought this for long gentle cooking of stews. Unfortunately, modern Crock-Pots are not suited for this. Even on the low setting they will boil a stew. An FAQ on the Crock-Pot website confirms that the only difference between the high and low settings is that on low it takes longer to reach the same holding temperature. This contradicts the information in slow cooking books, and led to several burnt messes when I set the cooking time for too long. Buying this was a costly mistake! The cheaper Lakeland model I replaced it with keeps my stews below boiling on low, and I am much happier with it.

Best slow cooker ever!”
bought this slow cooker as needed one that could cope with cooking quanitites for a family of 5 and I was not disappointed! It is a great slow cooker, much better than my older, smaller ones! Only problem I could suggest was that it an automatic timer to set would be useful when using the low mode so I could set it to come on when I am either not in the house or in bed asleep! Also my old cookers came with a more comprehensive recipe book than this one did! Will be using it to make my Christmas puddings at xmas time, so will keep you informed!

This review is for an older version of this product
When I first looked at this slow cooker I wondered if the amount it cost was too much due to the cheaper alternatives, but i went ahead and got this one and i am happy i did, not only does i looks good but it is very practial and very easy yo use.

This is a fantastic piece of kitchen equipment which looks great too. I have cooked numerous tasty recipes in it. I used the keep warm facility to keep a huge amount of chilli hot for a party. I ordered this and it was delivered within 2 days. How's that for service? The Crock-Pot does 'exactly what it says on tin'. A great buy.

First Crock Pot”
by John Rawlings
I did a lot of rearch for a decent slow cooker and decided, based on the reviews, to buy this one. The product arrived in good order. We have used it a few times using the free cook book that was part of the special offer. The machine is simplicity itself but I think it will take time to get used to cooking this way.

My crockpot does not get put away, it is in constant use. It's main function is wholesome soup. I can get about twelve servings at one go, and cooked overnight, it is not a chore. I also use it for gammon, rolled turkey breast, casseroles. It's a good way of providing healthy fat free meals for my family. I would heartedly recommend this item. Mrs. dorothy webb

great slow cooker”
I bought this slow cooker to replace the one I bought (from another company that was a nice design but the food stuck to the bottom) the crock pot is so easy to use holds a good amount of food, make double and freeze one. I cooked a joint of beef in it on Sunday, put it on to cook for 8 hours went out and left it, when it finished cooking it goes to a warm feature which I was away for an extra 3 hours, and the meat was done to a turn. Got a beef and country casserole cooking now, no sticking easy to clean nice design to keep on the work top if you wish

I have had quite a few slow cookers and this one is the largest and best. It will cook happily for just the two of us and cook for a regiment when the family arrive. I love the timer and keep warm facilities. We have just enjoyed Beef Olives for dinner ----------delicious.

not for everyone”
My crock-pot experience has not been a good one. Paid extra for this one, but as it slow cooks the lid can move, the rubber seal isn't up to scratch

I bought this, even though it seemed expensive compared to some others, as I have been really disappointed in my last two slow cookers. Finally a slow cooker that does what it says. On low it will cook for 10 hours without drying out. The digital timer and display are great but the best bit about this slow cooker is that it will cook slowly!
