    After reading this thread back when it was originally started and again now, I ordered one too. It arrived the other day, but I haven't used it yet. Plan to this week. I'll let ya know how it turns out.

    I hadn't opened the box, now after reading the last post, I think I better open it and see if it's all in one piece!

    Sometimes I look at the slow cookers in the stores, nice stainless steel, keep warm, timers, etc and I really want to get rid of my old Rival that's white with the greeny ivy design. The new ones would look so nice on my kitchen counter.

    After re-reading, as well, I thought of a solution for you, Cookin-jo!

    Hi-temp spray paint. The kind that's meant for grills. It comes in a variety of colors. Tape off any parts you don't want painted, and stuff the inside with plastic grocery bags to keep the inside protected. You could just paint a black stripe over the ivy. And over that you could get car detailing FLAMES! icon_lol.gif Like Alton Brown's KitchenAid mixer.

    Seriously, though, hi-temp spray paint could work wonders....

    Okay, here is my feedback on this slowcooker...the replacement came this week and of course I had to try it out yesterday icon_rolleyes.gif I cut up a boneless chuck roast and threw it in without browning it first...then added some of my wonderful homemade italian "red gravy" some of you might call it sauce. Started it on high for an hour and then switched it to low for 8 more was not overcooked or burned on the bottom. The meat was done and tender....very happy with it so far. icon_smile.gif

    Hey that's terrrific. Thanks for updating us.

    I've been reviewing the crock pots out there and have concluded these products as a whole are a mess right now. Rival is dependable but hot. The most attractive is Corning Ware at a good price, too, but reviews are awful. Also, Corning Ware evidently has the opposite problem that Rival does - not hot enough. Good Grief. Reviews for most other lower-price crockpots are generally not good either.

    So....since I love to cook in these things, I'm going to keep an eye out on the industry and monitor what's out there. Maybe Farberware is a good bet. Keep us posted.

    just ordered mine from Amazon a few minutes ago with the 1 year replacement deal and free super saver shipping...
    should have it in 2-3 weeks!
    I'm off to collect recipes to try in it now icon_biggrin.gif

    I just got a replacement large crockpot and tried it out yesterday. So far I like it, but will have to test it out more fully to determine more. Anyway, I bought this one because it actually has 4 cycles, Warm, Low, Medium, and High. It's digital, so after the cook cycle, it switches over to Warm and keeps the food warm for up to about 8 hours.

    One of the reviewers tested the temps of the settings and came up with this:
    'Low' is about 155 F, 'medium' is about 170 F and 'High' is 200 F

    Anyway, I ordered it through Amazon, and since I'm a prime member there, my 2 day shipping was free. The price of it was $57.83.

    The reviews for this were terrific. I question the temperatures by the reviewer who checked the temps of the cooker. Meat is "falling apart" at an internal temperature of 200F and most foods are "safe" above internal temps of 160F. Neither can be achieved if the low temp is 155F.

    Keep us posted on how it does.

    surprisingly enough, my Farberware FSSC500 arrived way sooner than expected...TODAY!

    did the 'water test' that the manual recommends before using the first time, seemed to go fine

    now I've got macaroni and cheese cooking away inside it and in an hour or less, I'll have dinner! I'm so excited! icon_wink.gif

    That's great. Describe the water test, please.

    the manual tells you that before you cook in it for the first time, to put 2 c. of water in it, turn it on high and let it run for 30 min.
    then turn it off wait 20 min, empty out the water, dry it and then you can go ahead and cook your first meal.
    it also says something about having an odor during this process, but not to worry, that it'll dissipate.

    I'm sure that the whole thing is to make sure it works and perhaps as a secondary check to test the crock for unseen cracks?

    I dunno...
    mine's fine (despite the atrocious packing job they did for shipping) and the mac+cheese I did for dinner came out nice.
    Considering the Rival I used to have, used to burn my mac+cheese, I'm very happy with this new one!

    I'm thinking of doing a potato chowder in it tonight...

    Awww why's everyone hating on my crockpot icon_smile.gif I still have a Rival 6Q Smart Pot Slow Cooker the purty Stainless Steal one (I'm just a sucker for buttons. The more the merrier.
    icon_wink.gif It works just fine for me. It has yet to burn anything. I set it up before work and when I come home I got perfectly cooked meals. Maybe I just got the runt of the litter that works.
