The Crock-Pot Brand has been around for decades. The Crock-Pot was the original manufacturer of the first slow cooker. They started out with a bean cooker and have expanded to have a wide variety of sizes and styles of Crock-Pots with different functions. I like buying from a brand that has been around a long time because it shows to me that they are doing something right to stay in business this long.
Let's take a look at what customers who bought this Crock-Pot had to say.

- Great Color
- Thermal Bag
- Easy To Clean
Color and Style
I personally love the look of this red slow cooker. It has such a festive and clean look to it. I can imagine how nice it would look at Christmas time sitting on a table decorated for the holidays. One customer also liked the look of this bright red Crock-Pot. This buyer wrote this comment, "Wonderful crock pot! just the right size for me to make a pot of chile in. Love the red coloring."
The price on the Red 7Qt Crock Pot Slow Cooker with Travel Bag is a bit on the high end for this size and the fact that is a manual type of Crock-Pot. It does not have the feature that allows you to set a time that it turns off automatically. But it does come with a nice bag which is an added feature.
The bag is a really nice addition for when you want to take this to a party or event. I can't help but love this red color and how festive it looks. For me, I like that the bag would be added insurance that nothing spills or breaks while traveling. One customer wrote this about the bag, "The bag comes in handy when you want to take a dish to a potluck or family holiday dinner, and I love that it came in red to match all of my other countertop appliances."
This Crock-Pot will hold up to 7 Quarts of food. This is a great size for a large family. It's also a good size for a single person or small family that likes to have leftovers. Leftovers are one of my favorite things about slow cookers. You can let a roast cook all day one day and have it for dinner, then put the stoneware part with the food in the refrigerator. The next day, dinner or lunch is as simple as putting the stoneware part back in the Crock-Pot and turning the temperature to warm. Or you can even turn it to high if you want it done sooner. Dinner is ready really quickly that way since the food has already been cooked the day before. One customer had this to say about the size - "It was large enough to cook St. Louis Style Baby Back Ribs in." Another customer said this about the size - "I love the size,big enough for a large roast or anything else you might want to make." This really is a nice and large slow cooker! It's surprising how much people can fit in there.
Ease of Cleaning
The great thing about Crock-Pots with the inner stoneware section is that you can take it out and wash it in the dishwasher or by hand with warm water and soap. The exterior can be washed with a wash cloth and warm water and soap, also. Just make sure to not submerge the outside section and always unplug your Crock-Pot before washing it. Some people liked the color because you could tell when it was totally clean. One customer wrote this - "It looks nice. I can tell if it's clean." Depending on what you are cooking, sometimes darker colors can make it harder to see if it's clean. But this one is a nice and bright red, so unless you are cooking cranberry sauce or something red in color, this should be easy to see when it's clean.
The Red 7Qt Crock Pot Slow Cooker with Travel Bag did not have a lot of reviews. However, the reviews that it did have were all positive. If you are looking for a Crock-Pot to take to Christmas events, I don't see how this one can be beat. With the thermal bag and festive red colors, this should be so much fun to carry into a party. So in summary, I can't see anything wrong with this Crock-Pot other than a slightly elevated price and the fact that it doesn't have secure snap down snaps on the lid for traveling. Other than that, this looks like a really nice Crock-Pot.
