Hamilton Beach made this slow cooker to be useful no matter how much time you require when getting foods cooked. You can set the timer to go from two to ten hours of cooking right off of the panel. (2,4,6,8 or 10 hours button)
No matter how long you cook it for, it will shift to a keep warm temperature when the cooking time is up.
You can choose from a high, low or warm temperature. The touch pad lets you adjust the cooker based on how long it will run for and what the temperature will be. You can touch the buttons a few times to set them properly.
Lights on the Hamilton Beacj slow cooker will show you how it is working. These lights are clearly labeled in terms of what people can use the slow cooker for. (You won’t need to read the manual 😉
The stoneware can go in microwave and oven.
Handle are strong and feel like quality.
Many report that the top lid does not fit tight. So heat is getting out.
This is a good choice considering that the Negative reviews aren’t that bad. You might waste some energy because of heat getting out, but it will still cook and do all the job just fine.

Designed with a nice stainless steel body, this model from Crock-Pot has a knob on the side that lets you switch between low, high and warm settings.
The lid is fully clear and will keep in the heat without anything coming out of it.
The stoneware and glass lid are both dishwasher safe while handles can be used to make it easier for the unit to be carried around.
It is good for soups and mostly everything as long as you are aware that the lid does not completely close. (So, you might have to put more liquid in your recipe)
Many very bad review are about it to cook too strong, even at low it burn many recipes from many different reviewer. (It is still good for recipe with a lot of liquid or that does not need a lot of time at “low”.)
Many people are burning their meals with it and are disappointed.

Another model with a stainless steel body, this one from Hamilton Beach features a digital display that will show you the temperature of the slow cooker. It will allow you to adjust the temperature to something very specific.
You can use a manual or programmable setting for the slow cooker. A power interrupt protection feature is designed to ensure the slow cooker will stay on if the power goes out.
A probe is also included to help you review the temperature of whatever you are cooking in real time. After all it is not because you can see the temperature inside the cooker that you know the temperature of your food.
Works well, keep the desired temperature with incredible accuracy.
Very easy to understand instruction.
Most negative review report that the unite stop to work fast, between 6 to 12 months, with very little use. The good news is that they have a 1 year warranty. Still if something goes wrong, you will be asked to pay for the new product shipping.
The Lid has been reporting to shatter from many reviewer. It seems like it is a design flaws.
The negative reviews are a lot about lemon and defect product, which make us thing it happen a lot. However, when you got a nice one (the 1 year warranty is there for you) it is a nice option.

This is one of the larger slow cookers that Walmart has to offer.
This model from Elite Platinum has a knob that let you switch it from being off to a high, low or warm setting. The handles and knobs are cool and comfortable while the oval-shaped design will ensure that you can fit a small chicken or other whole meat into the cooker with ease.
The glass lid is made of tempered material to ensure that the cooker will stay comfortable and will not overheat.
Easy to clean.
Warm fast and work well for most foods.
Huge capacity, easy to use.
It does not close well at top, releasing a lot of heat.
It is more like aluminium than real quality stainless steel. (They even admit it is aluminium even if they advertise it is stainless steel…)
It seems like they have a poor customer support, no one is helping the customers.
It seems like everyone had a poor customer support service. Many report not being happy with return policy and not being able to talk to anyone at all. Good things for you if you have a broken one, amazon and walmart offer a short warranty, just be sure to try it once you bought it.

On the other end of the spectrum, Proctor Silex made this three-quart slow cooker to be easy to manage. Working with a standard knob with three regular heat settings, this comes with a lightweight white body that fits in well with most surfaces.
Designed with a stoneware body and a glass lid, it is a dishwasher-safe model. The materials can be removed with ease and washed in a machine to ensure that whatever you are using is fully cleared out
There is a small hole in the lid so you can use a meat thermometer. It does not affect the time of cooking.
Great size for 2-3 person.
The lid can broke, no one report it happened fast, most were after 3-4 years of use, not bad for a defect product. (Which is much longer than on other Slow Cooker review that report similar trouble on other brands)
It stop working in the first weeks. Good thing is that they have a 1 year warranty to cover up the case you receive a lemon.
It isn’t really 3 Quart. It is more like 2.5 Quart.
If you are not cooking for 4-5 person regularly, this is a perfect fit for your need.
