The Crock-Pot Manual Slow Cooker, 2 Quart (SCR200-B) is a very popular Crock-Pot. It is a 2-Quart Round Manual Slow Cooker that will serve 1-2 people. This is a perfect size for a personal slow cooker. It has a High and Low setting as opposed to the 3 settings of High, Low, and Warm. This Crock-Pot features a removable, dishwasher-safe stoneware insert. The glass lid is also dishwasher safe. The design is black. Recipes are included. It weighs 5 pounds with dimensions of 7.4 x 8.9 x 9 inches.
The Crock-Pot Brand has been around longer than any other slow cooker brands. The company invented the first slow cooker to cook beans. Since that time, they have expanded to include a variety of Crock-Pot sizes with features to fit varying cooking needs. I personally take comfort in buying from a company that has been around as long as the Crock-Pot Brand. They must be doing something right to continue to say in business as the top producer of slow cookers.

I've read the customer reviews and condensed what people had to say into popular topics. I hope that this helps you pick out the perfect slow cooker for your cooking needs.
The price really can't be beat. Because this is a basic Crock-Pot with manual settings and only 2 quarts, you will not be paying near what you would with one with more features. If you are not wanting to spend a lot on a small Crock-Pot, then this one may just be perfect for you.
The 2 Quart size of this Crock-Pot is perfect for a single person or a couple. It would a little too small for more than 2 people unless you planned on using it for dips and sauces. So keep in mind how many you will be serving before purchasing the 2 quart size. Here's what one customer had to say about the size, "This slow cooker is very small - smaller than I expected - but it's been perfect for my small household. It's deep and narrow, which means I don't have to add too much liquid when I need to cover. We've successfully made some tasty soups, pulled pork and chili in this little guy with plenty of leftovers. The small size also makes it easy to clean and store, which makes it less of a chore to use. Looking forward to winter with this! I would buy this again."
Some people who have a hard time lifting a larger Crock-Pot might benefit from this size. One woman wrote this, "My regular size crock pot is getting too heavy for me to lift out comfortably, and since I live alone there's no point making full-crock stews or roasts, anyway. This little guy is perfect for me."
While most people commented how this was the perfect size for meals for 1 or 2 people, some also used it for dips and sauces. One customer wrote this, "I use this for dips only. I fill it with 4-5 ingredients, turn it on low and stir occasionally. Within 60 minutes, I have a perfect appetizer for home or a party, that I serve with Fritos scoops or tortilla chips."
Ease of Cleaning
Crock-Pots are easy to clean. Simply take out the inside section which is made of stoneware and either put it in your dishwasher (the lid is also dishwasher safe) or use warm water, soap, and a cloth to clean it. For the exterior make sure to unplug it first and then clean with warm water, soap, and water with a damp wash rag. Make sure to not submerge the Crock-Pot exterior section in water. One customer had this to say about the cleaning of this Crock-Pot, "No trouble to clean up and clean up is easy. Just great all around."
Many customers commented how this smaller size makes cleaning much easier. One customer left this feedback, "When I got the crockpot, I was happy with how easy it is to use and clean. It is always awkward, heavy, and slippery to wash a crockpot. This can easily be held with one hand, and doesn't feel like you are going to drop it."
The Crock-Pot Manual Slow Cooker, 2 Quart is a very basic Crock-Pot. It has two heat settings - High and Low. It also has carry handles. This Crock-Pot does not have the bells and whistles that some of the other Crock-Pots do, but the customers who bought this commented often on how that is why they bought this one. For example, you can't program it to shut off at a certain time. There is no locking lid feature or thermal carry bag. It also does not have the "Warm" temperature setting that some of the other manual Crock-Pots have. This is just your basic Crock-Pot. Along with less features also comes a lower price.
This Crock-Pot will go with any decor. With it being a neutral color, this should make a great gift for someone. It's hard to go wrong with black as it should fit in with most kitchens.
The majority of customers bought this Crock-Pot for it's small size. The price was another selling point. Because it is a manual and basic Crock-Pot with only 2 heat settings, this is going to be one of your most basic of Crock-Pots on the market. I can't see where you can go wrong with buying this Crock-Pot if a 2 Quart size will work for you.
