I got this a few months ago (not from Amazon) and it is a great slow cooker. Simple to operate (Low, High, and Warm settings, no 'programmable' stuff), does the job great, and looks nice sitting on the counter (mine is out all the time as I've been using it almost every day for something).

The lid is very well fitting so no problems with evaporation and you can use less liquid in your cooking. The inner ceramic cooking vessel is very substantial and holds heat exceptionally well. On High the unit heats up much faster than some older crock pots, but I haven't had any problem with burning or sticking. This was the largest cooker I could find and it is perfect for meals for our family of six with plenty of leftovers. All around a great deal and wonderful addition to the kitchen.

There are lots of good slow cooker cook books available, too, that offer everything from super simple (relying on premixed seasonings or sauces) to gourmet fare. One of my favorites is Judith Finlayson's Delicious & Dependable Slow Cooker Recipes Created for Canada's Kitchens.

Do not buy this crockpot! I had one and used it for a few months the noticed that the basin had cracked and leaked liquid into the heating element. I purchased a replacement and the basin cracked within two uses. It was a complete waste of money.

It works okay but the glass lid doesn't fit snugly on the crockpot and the feet aren't all level so it doesn't sit flat on the counter. Relatively minor things, but you don't usually see that type of problem with appliances like this.

I looked around for a slow cooker and came across this Black & Decker unit at a great price. I works well and the front controls are nice and easy to see.

Wonderful quality in a solid crock pot - nice quality touches over Crock-Pot brand Nov. 26 2013
By Joel Avrunin - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
My family uses our crock pots constantly. Whether cooking split pea soup, slow cooking a roast, making chili, or a chulent, the crock pot is a great way to have a hot meal at some point in the future. Set it on Monday morning and come home to a hot meal Monday night, or set it Friday afternoon and have a hot chulent by Saturday afternoon. I prefer the manual (non-programmable) type because a small power glitch (common during storms around here) with an electronic crock pot could lead to a cold stew by evening. I've mostly bought crock-pot brand, and used them until they've died (in one case, the liner finally cracked).

This Black and Decker crock pot costs a bit more than my Crock Pot pots, but it is obvious that many of the finishings on it are just a step nicer. First, it has a power-light, something that Crock Pot doesn't have on most of their manual control pots. I love being able to tell at a glance that it has power without having to touch it to see if it is hot. Second, the switch is chrome and has a strong "thunk" detent into each setting. It feels very high quality. The handle on the lid is easy to grasp, and as an added feature, there is even a secondary handle under the lid, so you can pick up the lid if it is upside-down. I love that! No more burning yourself on a hot lid.

Other than that, the slow cooker works great. Leave it on low to cool all night or put it to high to speed things up (but careful, you can burn or dry out the food if left on high too long). The stainless steel finish looks great and this is a quality production in a relatively simple product category.

I liked the design Sept. 8 2014
By Melvin D Morrow - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I liked the design, its functionality, but it DID NOT perform well at all. I used a recipe and followed it to the letter and it did not do its job. I doubled the time and it still did not do what I thought it should. I did register, called the company and they are going to refund my cost. I was also informed by them that this cooker was no longer in stock.

great slow cooker Jan. 8 2014
By Lettylou - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I did a TON of research before choosing this model. I decided against a programmable one because the reviews (both consumer and expert) were so varied didn't inspire a lot of confidence. This particular model caught my attention in part because of the positive consumer reviews, but also the size, the finish and the power indicator light. After using the slow cooker, I'm very impressed with the glaze finish and the ease of cleanup, the handle design on the lid and the overall "solidness" of the unit. It has exceeded my expectations thus far.

It's a new day for a stew day, not a bad simple crock cooker. Nov. 30 2013
By Courtland J. Carpenter - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This is a bit less versatile than my current slow cookers, but it's not bad if you like crock cooked stews and roasts. I've used an oval slow cooker for over 10 years, started to wear out the coating on my first one, so I do a lot of stews, roasts, chili, ham, plus other slow cooked favorites. I always get these beef tips and gravy from Schwans and combine them with fresh carrots, canned Irish potatoes, mushrooms (fresh or canned) and some soup bases, plus lots of Old Bay for flavor. I used to do this every other weekend, but have slacked off a bit lately, cooking other things. The type of slow cooker I used was a Stainless non-stick oval with glass lid and two side handles. It sets on an oval pedestal which is also coated, and you could probably cook pancakes on it if they are not too big. The reason I liked these is simple, I use a combination of fresh, canned, and frozen items in the pot. The pot can be put on the burner and brought to a boil in minutes, and then transferred to the slow cooking platform. This cuts out as much as two hours of cooking and stir times when I'm using frozen items, unfortunately here I'll have to take other measures. My slow cooker had a small wire rack too that was useful in doing small pot roasts, to avoid the meat from burning.

What is good about this cooker is the simplicity, you fill the crock decide on fast or really slow cook, and then mostly forget it. Now for some reason, there is a special flavor coming out of a crock cooker. I can't explain it, but it does taste different from the stainless coated one. Maybe that's why they make those nice baked beans in a crock vs. a kettle, something about the flavor. This has only a few settings, off, low, high, and warm. My slow cooker doesn't have a light cause it's always on a little even when the switch is at zero. This one has an ON indicator lamp, and that might help when you're cooling it down to room temperature, to put the crock in the fridge. It's nice the lid fits the crock insert, so it can go in covered as well. FYI, another point on the lid, my slow cooker has a metal handle that gets too hot to take off by hand to serve or stir, this one may not be as durable, but it is plastic, so it does not get very hot to the touch, a good thing.

When I made my stew in this one I spend extra time running warm water in the sink over the plastic my Schwans sirloin tips and gravy came in, and for the extra water I added hot, it still took about an hour more than usual, about 3.5 hours to finish the raw carrots and soften all the beef fat. It was very good though, so there's that. Slow cookers or crocks, remember if you are a round crock owner, that oval lids are a bit more dangerous. Round cannot fall into the stew completely, you can only get a little of the side in, the oval lid can practically sink all the way in. It doesn't happen often, but don't get lazy putting it back on.

The Good: Simple control, nice see-through lid with handle that won't burn you.
Lamp to indicate when it is on, and a keep warm setting.
Special flavor only comes from the milder heat transfer from crockery.
Lift out crockery can be put in the fridge or for easy cleaning.
Crockery is pretty well made, not as many defects as I've seen in Rival products.

The Bad: Not as fine a heat control as with my graduated progressive slow cooker dial.
Can't quick start the cooking on the stove and then transfer to the base.
Oval lid can fall deep into stew, chili or other food.
No timer setting means a potential risk if wanting to slow cook all day.
I found the low setting a bit too low for slow cooking completely.
Unit is much bigger than my slow cooker, and takes up more counter space and to store.
No digital control or temperature probe.
No internal wire rack for roasts.

I guess the well equipped kitchen should have a decent crockery cooker, and with the holidays, I can see the need to have something to do ham in one and chili or beans in the other. I give it a mild recommend. My rating is qualified though, I would not buy this, for a few dollars more you can get an accurate heat controlled unit, some with temp probes, and some with timers. If you just don't like the gadgets however, it's not a bad buy!

Black and Decker SL5470C Stainless Steel Slow Cooker / B002SB8K4W

I've had an older-model Hamilton Beach 33967 Set 'n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker for years and we've gotten so much use out of it. I thought it might make sense to try out this Black & Decker model and maybe upgrade to it permanently if it turned out to be better.

Controls: This Black & Decker model is manual control, which means that you just have a turn knob with three options: Low, High, and Warming. I don't really like manual control, and I prefer my digital programmable Hamilton Beach model (which also has Low/High/Warm functions in addition to fancier temperature settings). I will say, though, that I can see manual being useful if the power goes out (briefly) while you're cooking and if, when the power comes back on, the manual cooker continues cooking. (Though it seems like this could be dangerous, in the Food Safety sense, if the power was out for some time without your knowledge? I'm not an expert, though.)

Lids: One thing I don't like about this Black & Decker model is that the lid just sits loosely on. My Hamilton Beach model actually has lid-clamps to hold the lid firmly in place.

Sizes: This Black & Decker model has a 7-quart capacity whereas the Hamilton Beach one only has 6-quarts, however (a) I can't tell a difference by sight (and both units look the same size to me), and (b) we've never cooked anything which needed more than 6-quarts worth of space.

All in all, this is a good slow cooker--don't take away from my rating that it's not. And if you really need a 7-quart capacity or if you prefer manual to digital then I do recommend this model. But I'll stick with my Hamilton Beach one for now, because I so much prefer the digital options.

A note on cooking: When we were new to slow cooking, we thought that roasts had to be covered to the top in broth or water, and we never understood why the meat came out so tough. Someone finally told us to stop using so much liquid and that made all the difference in the world. I now never use more than 1 small can of broth with our roasts and they come out as tender as you can imagine. Also look up how to cut against the grain instead of with it, because that can make a huge difference as well. Good luck!
