    How can you test the tempersture in your cooker?? I do have a probe thermometer, would that work??

    I will spot check temperatures by raising the lid, inserting a probe, covering the pot and checking the probe it after it reaches steady-state. Depending on the probe, I guess you could let it stay in the crockpot if there is room. I haven't tried my Polder probe where the cord would come under the lid seal, but I might do that one day.

    I actually did purchase this and tried it once so far. Would you believe that I had to cook split pea soup (I cooked it on low) over 12 hours, and it still had some non-tender peas in it. This is a true slow cooker on low. I'm not sure what I should do about making pot roast and vegetables in it. I called Customer Service and they didn't have temperature amounts to give me and told me to experiment on a Saturday. Not much help there.

    Has anyone that has this made pot roast and vegetables in it? I've got 4 lbs of pot roast and I'm planning on using approx 5 cups of veges.

    Thanks.

    Have any of you ever used a crock pot from the States in another country on another current? I had myself all ready to buy this Farberware crockpot (I am an American living in South Africa) but then REMEMBERED. I brought a Rival crockpot with me when we moved here many years ago, and even with a converter, the crockpot wouldn't heat up--at the time I thought maybe because it drew so little electricity. Anyway, I would love to order this one, if I thought it would work on this current--my husband isn't here for me to check with him right now icon_smile.gif but the voltage here is higher, I think. Any electrical people out there watching that could answer this question?

    Does anyone know of a crock pot that truly cooks on low, when low setting is selected and is bigger than the Farberware 5 qt that is mentioned here?

    I had to replace my old, old, ( well over 20 yrs old) a couple of years ago and I now have two 6 qt ones that do NOT truly cook at a low temp.

    I am tired of overcooking, dried out foods and now only use them when someone is home to stop cooking times before everything comes out like a dried out mess!

    Thanks for any info.

    as someone else has mentioned in the first few pages of this topic. farberware has one and it happens to be the one i use. i have never had any problems with things burning or cooking too fast. and i put the crock on at 8:30 and get home at 6:00 so it truly cooks on low all day. works wonderful!! click the link below to see a picture at amazon.com. also just a note there is no bells and whistles with this crock just high, low, and warm no timer icon_sad.gif but you don't need one. icon_smile.gif)

    edit to remove link to my page.....

    I have used the same crock pot you had problems with. If you cook it on low works well. Or if you want to give it a start, put it on high and then pop it down to low.

    Since I have 6 - 8 hours or more, normally I leave it on the lowest setting and works well for me.

    Glad to hear you have a crock pot that works good for you!

    I have some pretty good recipes on my page if anyone is interested icon_smile.gif

    Hi all! I just read through this thread again...LOL and I just adore my Farberware crock pot! It truly cooks slow like my old (original) one. It cleans up great! I was afraid since it was white that it would discolor and stain but so far so good. Perfect white crock and the outside is wonderfully white. My last Rival started discoloring right away and it is the oval with the green pattern on it.

    I JUST LOVE MY Farberware! Best gadget I've bought in a long time. icon_lol.gif

    I wanted a crock pot and was looking for one and saw this thread so asked for the Farberware for Christmas. I love it!! It works brilliantly and my boyfriend, who does the clean up, loves how easily it cleans up.

    For the person wondering about the voltage, I think you would have to buy a transformer. I'd get the best quality you could afford. I've heard of people going to other countries with US appliances and doing that. I'm not sure how long it works, but definitely the better the transformer, the better and longer it would work.

    Hi. I am a big slow-cooker fan. I recently received as a gift the All-Clad Slow Cooker with the aluminum insert. Is there anything that I should know, good or bad, about this particular model? I am very excited about this gift! But I'm concerned that there's no "crock" part even though I'll be able to use the aluminum insert to brown meat, etc.

    All-Clad makes no junk. I don't have the cooker but do have a lot of All-Clad cookware and am very impressed with the quality. I don't know if the crock adds much to the slow cooking. I remember years ago having an alumium slow cooker by Westbend. I really liked it and had no issues with it.

    Hello all! I'm new to this thread, but a crockpot believer...just got a new crockpot for Christmas from DH...he picked out a nice Cooks brand 6qt digital timer version. I haven't done any tests on it to verify temps, but do know that it has been really nice to put a pork shoulder or chicken in before I leave to work, let it cook on low for 8 hours, then it will switch to a pretty heated "warm" for up to the same amount of hours you set it to cook before completely shutting off. So far, I can't seem to burn anything in it yet, and I'm normally pretty good about making that happen.

    I have read through this thread because as it so happens, i am in need of a new crock pot because I so expertly dropped the crock part in my garage and it cracked. I have heard the rumors that the newer ones are way too hot..which looks to be true. I am wanting to get the Farberware one that everyone is raving about but I'd rather have an oval one for my pot roasts and chickens. Does anyone know if the same rave reviews of the circular 5 quart Farberware slow cooker would apply to an oval Farberware? do they have one like that even?
