    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.


    I also have your model of crockpot, in addition to my new farberware one. I find that the Rival will do well with foods that are not that temperature sensitive, such as beans, pot roast, etc. If I am cooking with tomato based sauces or something like mac and cheese, the Rival just gets too hot and it tends to scorch on the bottom. I figure that right now I have the best of both worlds. icon_surprised.gif

    I wouldn't say 'runt'...perhaps just a better model than the one I had (in my case)?
    though now I'm having to make a slight adjustment with the new Farberware one.
    I got so used to my prior HOT Rival (and having to reduce cooking times) that I find I'm having to adjust my cooking times upwards now for the Farberware, LOL icon_lol.gif

    It's funny you mention that...
    my most successful recipes in the new farberware crock have been a mac 'n' cheese with ham recipe and a stuffed shells recipe
    In my prior HOT Rival, they'd have scorched for sure!

    I just ordered the Farberware Crockpot after reading this thread over and over again for months. I finally gave in and ordered it! Should be here in a few days. I hope I love it like everyone else here. icon_lol.gif

    This is what I ended up with (see pg 1)

    "I ordered from Amazon it turned out to be over $50 so I cancelled that and saw I could get the Slow Cooker Cookbook which would bring my total over $25 and qualify me for the free shipping. (somehow, I probably did something wrong because all this stuff is over my head )

    Anyway, I got both for $36.
    I have 2 crock pots but my mother has confiscated one of them and I was thinking about getting another one anyway. "

    This was what was good for me back then.
    You can check and see if you can do the same thing now.

    Just went onto Amazon..... Target sells it on Amazon for $29.99 + shipping. Amazon sells it for $34.99 + shipping...you need to find out the difference in shipping cost to what is the cheaper way to go. I checked the Target website...this crockpot is only sold on the web, not in stores.

    I think I may treat myself. icon_redface.gif

    I hope I'm just as happy as the rest of you. Like I said I have kept coming back to this thread over and over again and finally bit the bullet and ordered. Should get it in a couple of days..... I want my old one back, I never had a problem with my 20 year old rival except it really didn't look presentable in public.... icon_lol.gif I gave it to my kids when they were starting out. Wish I would have kept it, as we get older, looks are NOT everything! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif (Kids got rid of it, it wasn't pretty enough icon_confused.gif icon_confused.gif )

    I'll get back to you on how much it cost, I ordered from Amazon too.

    I just introduced this to another group and the man that ordered it just submitted a "Thank You". It just came and he checked the temps and saw for himself that they are truly lower.

    So, there are many of us that have it and are happy because it is true to temp.

    Well, I ordered it too. Like I really need another one. Actually, I ordered it as a gift for someone. Hopefully, I'll keep my hands off of it! I do, however, have the new Hamilton Beach 3 in 1 Slow Cooker, and it is fantastic.

    It has 3 different bowl sizes, 2-qt, 4-qt and 6-qt. What I found today, by filling the 6-qt with water and taking the temp every few hours, is that you can "trick" the base into thinking it has a 4-qt bowl in it, for example, when you actually have the 6-qt bowl in it. This would be helpful for those of us that leave early in the morning, say 7:00am or so, and don't get back until 5:00-6:00pm. I found that it cooks a little slower this way, but it still gets the contents up to a safe temperature within a short time (food must be at/over 140-degrees to prevent bacterial growth).

    At four hours, the water in the 6-qt bowl (which I believe I overfilled for test purposes), was at 170 degrees, well above safe limits. I had the base "tricked" by pressing the 4-qt button. After that time, at six, seven and eight hours, it leveled off to just over 180 degrees.

    According to busycooks.about.com. contents in slow cooker should be at a temp of at least 140 degrees at four hours. At the University of Minnesota website, their accuracy tests recommend a water temperature of 185 degrees at eight hours. They recommend testing by filling cooker 1/2 to 2/3 full and heating on LOW for eight hours.

    So, by experimenting with this cooker using the water temperature tests, the contents were well within safe limits, even though the base of the cooker used less wattage than what the bowl I had in it required.

    I think the newer slow cookers are programmed to zoom up to a high temperature quickly, and then are supposed to level off. The problem is that they stay hot, and turn everything into a cooked pancake.

    Hope this helps.

    ChiCook, I like the looks of the Hamilton & 3 bowls would come in handy. The Hamilton site did not say if the lid was glass. Is it a glass lid?

    It is, but what is also nice about the lid is that it has a small hole in it, one which a thermometer can be inserted through. If you're cooking a roast, such as a beef roast, or a turkey breast, you can actually test the temp by inserting an instant read thermometer through the opening without lifting the lid.

    Like the thermometer hole!!! I am in Canada & I do not have the choices that you do. The ones I have looked at lately have the plastic/light weight lid. I want a lid with weight (glass). I feel that it provides a better seal.

    I will be looking for the Hamilton. I love the size choices & will be glad to work with a longer cooking time. As the crockpots that I have returned have burned my recipe on low in 4hrs.

    Thank you for the recommendation!

    I just came across this thread and for years used the old rival (i believe) crockpot, the kind where the insert did not come out. I lost (or thought i did found it again) the lid so had to buy a new crockpot. well walking around albertsons and shopping i saw a large white crockpot and put it in my basket without any shopping around. I figured all crockpots are the same (finding out now they are not) bought it brought it home and used it loved it was very close to my old one. Now reading this thread i guess i inadvertantly made a good choice as the farberware round crockpot is what i ended up with. I always see the ones with timers etc... and wish i would have got one of them...but now i'm happy with my choice. thank you for showing me the way on crockpots and thinking that i'm pretty lucky that i ended up with the one i did icon_smile.gif no bells and whistles but good cooking and holds alot icon_smile.gif
