Slow Cooker Question

I'm interested in buying this cooker...

https://www.walmart.com/ip/Elite-Pla...r-Red/38462792

Here's the silver version...

Elite 8.5 qt. Slow Cooker-MST-900V - The Home Depot

I managed to find and download the manual. It says not to use the Cooker for longer than 8 hours. Why? Isn't that what a Slow Cooker is for? I'm looking at Beef Stew recipes that call for 8-10 hours. I don't get it.

If there is a problem with this cooker, can anyone suggest a different 8.5 Qt. Cooker?

You should contact the manufacturer with that question. If it were me, I'd select a product that suits my needs and not bother with one that doesn't. Saves a lot of time and wasted effort.

That’s a big cooker. We have an assortment but my favorite is this 6 quart that has WiFi. The programs often exceed 8 hours. Maybe use two?

E-mailed them last week. Waiting for a reply. And waiting. And waiting. The size suits my needs. Electric roaster a little too big. This one perfect.

My son has this one. I need a larger size. Everytime I make something, I end up adding more meat or vegetables and I run out of room. We had a Farberware 8Qt but the liner cracked. Don't really care for "High Tech". Simple switch O.K. for me.

I don't understand how it could, if it is not recommended to be used beyond 8 hours. But whatever.

Well, low tech is hard to find these days. Even the cheap ones seem to have at least a programmable control. Amazon has this Slow Cooker for $46.44. It's 8.5 quart and the timer will set up to 20 hours. It seems to have good reviews.

That's me. If I had a 20 quart one, I would fill it up. More room means more stuff can go in.

Hi everyone. My Wife and Son got me this one...
Crock-Pot® Manual Slow Cooker, Silver at Crock-Pot.com.
$25 at an outlet store. First thing I made was a Pot Roast, and I just about filled it up. But I love it. Soup recipes, here I come.

Oh, This got me yesterday. Went shopping at Walmart. Look what they have for $39...

Wife says I might get this one in a few months. Have to check reviews to see if its any good.

Merry Christmas all.
