crock pots

The Crock-Pot 6-Quart Cook & Carry Oval Manual Portable Slow Cooker feeds 7 plus people.  The handles make it easy to carry.  It has High, Low, and Warm Settings.  For ease of cleaning, this Crock-Pot has a removable, dishwasher-safe stoneware insert, and dishwasher-safe locking glass lid.  The red exterior is stylish with the black accents and plastic handles.  The secure-fitting lid and locking system creates a tight seal between the stoneware and lid.  This will ensure that up to 6 quarts of your food that you prepared stays right where it should, even on bumpy car rides to events.  

This slow cooker is made by one of the most reputable brands out on the market today. The Crock-Pot Company has been in business for many decades.  Crock-Pot emerged as the original slow cooker brand long ago and the company is still going strong.  It's evolved from a single bean cooker into a diverse and long line of slow cookers for the modern family in today's world.  They also sell accessories that make meals and food parties, both easier and more convenient.  Personally, I like going with a name I can trust.  When a brand has been around as long as the Crock-Pot Brand has, you know they must be doing something right.

Let's dive right into what the customers are saying about the Crock Pot 6-Quart Cook & Carry Oval Manual Portable Slow Cooker.

Temperature Settings

The Crock Pot 6-Quart Cook & Carry Oval Manual Portable Slow Cooker has 3 settings - Low, High, and Warm.  It's nice to be able to decide when you want to eat, just by setting the correct setting out of the 3.  One  customer liked the low setting for making yogurt.  She commented,  "Works like a champ for anyone looking to make yogurt."  Another commented, "Everything I have made comes out delicious and I haven't found it to heat things too quickly. I think the key is to make A LOT of whatever you are making to avoid burning."

This is a great price for a 6-Quart Crock-Pot.  You could spend a lot more for a slow cooker that will do the same job as this lower priced Crock.

This Crock-Pot can feed up to 7 people and hold 6-Quarts of food.  Sometimes it's easier to go bigger than smaller.  Even a household of one or two can reheat left-overs in a Crock-Pot this size for an easy meal.  Some customers did want to remind people that if buying this as a gift for an elderly or disabled person, make sure that they can lift a Crock-Pot of this size.

After reading the reviews, I was surprised as to how much food this Crock-Pot could hold.  One satisfied customer wrote this, "Of course like many others we got a 'regular' Crock pot several years ago, 30 really, and talked about a larger one for cooking chickens and roasts for parties etc. WELL, this unit has really worked out to be the favorite item in the kitchen. A whole chicken, a large roast, rack of ribs. One of the best things is some subtle upgrades, the pressure relief valve on the lid, no spattering or spilling while cooking. the little rubber gasket on the lid to help that spattering also. NOW, the high temp setting will cook that chicken in about 5 hours, or on low for all day while you are out."

Style is such a personal thing. I personally love the look of this red Crock-Pot.  It has such a cheerful look to it. And just think of how the red will look so festive with food in it at Christmas time.  If you like red, the way that I do, then this might be your Crock-Pot.

Ease of Cleaning

The inside ceramic part of the Crock Pot 6-Quart Cook & Carry Oval Manual Portable Slow Cooker easily comes out for ease of cleaning.  For the exterior, make sure to unplug the appliance and then spot clean it with a damp washcloth.  This Crock-Pot is very easy to clean.

The handles on this Crock-Pot are a really nice feature.  They are secure and will make carrying your Crock-Pot so much easier.  Many customers positively commented on this feature.

Locking Lid

The locking lid is a wonderful feature if you plan on traveling with this Crock-Pot.  You can rest assured that your hot food will stay warm and not on your lap or vehicle's interior when you hit a bump in the road.  Some of the customer's commented that they thought the food stayed warmer when the lid was locked on.  Here's what one customer had to say, "The locking lid is wonderful and I think it actually helps to hold in the heat better than non-locking pots I've had in the past. I would definitely recommend this pot to friends and relatives."

My Conclusion 

If you are looking for a 6-quart Crock-Pot that can feed up to 7 people or just want a basic and durable Crock-Pot for a 1 or 2 person household, then this might be the slow cooker for you.  It had a lot of reviews and the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. The price is good.  The handles and locking lid are a great feature to keep food where it should stay. One complaint that I've seen on this and other similar Crock-Pots are that people wished it had an indicator light.  This would let people know when it's off or on.  Other than that recommendation, I couldn't find anything bad to say about this Crock-Pot.
