Crock-Pot Stainless-Steel Manual Slow Cooker
Large 7-Quart Capacity
Removable glass lid with stay-cool loop handle. Click here for a larger image
Make delicious home-cooked meals for the family or to take along to pot lucks, banquets, or other fun gatherings with this SCV700SS oval-shaped manual slow cooker from Crock-Pot. With its roomy interior and large 7-quart capacity, the stainless-steel slow cooker offers enough space to accommodate a large batch of anything from vegetarian chili or lentil soup to pot roast or lemon herb roasted chicken. It can even fit a 7-pound roast. The 7-quart slow cooker works well for serving approximately 9 or 10 people--ideal for meals during the week, holiday dinners, and year-round entertaining.
Manual Control Dial
The slow cooker comes equipped with a manual control dial for choosing low, high, and warm heat settings. The low setting allows food to cook slowly, so at the end of a long day of errands, house cleaning, or time at the office, dinner will be ready and waiting. The high setting makes it easy to get dinner on the table quickly, or to whip up an appetizer or dip for an impromptu gathering with the new neighbors. The warm setting keeps food at an ideal serving temperature without over-cooking, so food stays hot and delicious until the last party guest heads home. Turn the dial all the way to the left to "off" when finished.
Removable Stoneware with Glass Lid
Thoughtfully designed, the slow cooker provides a removable oval-shaped stoneware, which distributes heat evenly and doubles as a serving dish. Integrated side handles on the stoneware make it easy to lift out of the base and transport. The slow cooker also provides a secure-fitting glass lid with a stainless-steel rim and black stay-cool handle. The see-through glass lid traps in heat and moisture for delicious results, plus allows for checking on food at a glance without losing heat by lifting the cover. The slow cooker's stoneware insert and glass lid move easily to the table for serving, to the refrigerator for storing leftovers (no need to dirty a second container), and into the dishwasher for quick cleanup between uses.
The slow cooker's heating base features a sleek stainless-steel finish and comes complete with black, stay-cool side handles for safe, secure transport. An attractive addition to any modern kitchen, the 7-quart slow cooker measures approximately 14-2/5 by 9-1/2 by 14-2/5 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty. Recipes come included ranging from baby back ribs, BBQ pulled pork, and beef bourguignon to chicken cacciatore, chili, beef stew, meatballs, and more.

With the exception of turkeys, this one will hold almost anything you would normally want to cook at home. Often overlooked is the height of the cooking container and again the 7-quart size allows you to cover your typical meal with liquids, an important factor in many slow-cooker recipes.
Controls are as straightforward as it gets: one rotary dial for off, low heat, high heat, and keep warm settings. When I said " (almost) everything" I was thinking of a pilot light to let you know the unit was on, as with any slow cooker the heat can vary from barely noticeable to a potential contact burn when all you have to go on is by touching the ceramic urn.
I understand that when you are designing an item for maximum utility at minimum cost the secret is knowing what to put in and what to leave out, but I think a lamp, which would probably have raised the retail price by about $5 to $8 would have been a worthwhile design decision. Having said that, the Crock-Pot people have definitely created a functional appliance at a great price, so it's hard to complain too much about something they got so many other details spot-on with.
The rest: the ceramic crock is a bit heavy so not for unsupervised cooking with kids, but on the other hand it holds the heat well, which is what you want in a slow-cooker, and it has a good quality glaze that makes it easy to clean. The lid doesn't fit as tightly as I would like and I would suggest cleaning the lid by itself in the sink (you would not want to drop it onto other dishes when it was slippery from dish detergent suds) to make sure it doesn't break when you are cleaning it, but like the crock itself, is very easy to clean.
The cord is quite short, and this might be an issue with some kitchens. I understand that long power cords are a safety hazard and with a slow cooker that might contain a few quarts of boiling liquid, having a child pull on a too-long cord has scary potential consequences, but I felt I did need to mention it in a review.
Ideally, if needed at all, the cook should use an extension cord of exactly the required length to allow connection from your desired cooking position on the counter to the outlet without any of the cord hanging over or near the edge of the countertop.
A few dollars worth of parts at a hardware store for the handy, or someone who knows a friend or family member handy enough to build a safe extension cord would be ideal, as it's hard to find extension cords that would not be too long and therefore dangerous as described above.
And that's about it. In summary it's everything you need and nothing you don't need in a slow cooker. Because it's a 100% manual operation device and has the power to get to a full boil on the high setting, this would also work perfectly with a Sous Vide controller. I'm happy with mine.
Insert too big. Liners don't fit. Oh well, insert is easy to clean.
