5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Does the Job, Looks Good Sept. 21 2011
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but.... Sept. 19 2013
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful quality in a solid crock pot - nice quality touches over Crock-Pot brand Nov. 26 2013
By Joel Avrunin - Published on Amazon.com

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black and Stainless. It looks as good as it cooks. Dec 30 2013
By Bob Feeser - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I like the 7 Quart capacity. The others I was looking at were only 6 quarts. The instructions tell you to only use the cooker when at least 1/2 to 2/3rds full. So if you are planning on cooking for a one time meal without leftovers for an individual then something smaller is suggested. On the other hand I love to heat things up in the microwave that have been slow cooked, and frozen. That way I have a larger palette to choose from.

I love stainless in the kitchen and I especially love the removable ceramic crock pot. The temperature controls are a step back to basics with only low, high, and warm. Warm is just for keeping food warm according to the directions and it not suitable for cooking.
The advantage of the basic controls is that if there is a power outage you don't have to worry about keeping your settings. On the other hand you lose the option of being able to cook for an extended period of time, and then change it to simmer; an option that is very suitable for those who plan to stay away for a longer period of time and not have their food overcooked.

It is an attractive slow cooker, and something that you wouldn't mind serving guests with. I also like the design of the large oval lid with a space age design handle. It is very substantial overall. The ceramic crock that is easily removable for cleaning is really nice. I would consider this to be a very good to excellent quality piece of equipment, and a welcome addition to your kitchen arsenal.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars great slow cooker Jan. 8 2014
By Lettylou - Published on Amazon.com

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good looking and works well. Dec 30 2013

First, I like the shape. This is my first oval cooker and I find it is easier to cook roasts in. When I think of all the times I've had to cut a pot roast into two pieces to squeeze it into a round cooker, I appreciate it even more. All crock pots now have their temps set higher than when I got my first one many years ago, and I wish everyone could experience what an old-timey slow cooker could do with a roast or cut up chicken pieces. I guess someone decided it wasn't healthy to cook food without that boiling around the edges of the slow cooker, but it sure makes a difference in the finished product. Anyway, this Black and Decker does do the boiling thing. That's okay, because I like the features on it.

I like the fact it is not programmable. As someone else mentioned, we have frequent storms in our area and when I come home after a power surge, I have to reset a lot of things in the kitchen these days. I'd rather not have to start my slow cooker back at 6 hours cooking time. I like the removable ceramic crock and the quality of all the parts inside and out. I looked at this crock pot at Sears for 98.00, so this is a great deal on a nice product.
