We bought one of these Hamilton Beach: Stay or Go™ Slow Cookers

I like how the top locks down because we often take meals to different functions and this makes it very easy to transport.

Okay I take back my recommendation of the three in one and will be taking the item back to Walmart (no, I didn't use it first ). Because of the shape, things like a corned beef roast won't fit in even the largest bowl. I'm sure it might be okay for soup or something liquid, but nothing solid because of the shape. For the cost I could get two Crock Pots in different sizes so I would say avoid the 3 in 1 Hamilton Beach.

I checked a couple of Consumer Report artivles on the web and they seem a bit suspect because of when & by whom they were written. However, I found one that was supposedly from CR, but the results were different than I read in the magazine. In any event, this is how they rated the top 3 in one article:
1. All Clad 99005
2. Rival Crock-Pot SCVC604H-SS
3. Hamilton Beach Set 'N Forget 33967
I'll probably take a close look at each and make up my mind based on what I find.

My mom was showing me her new Kitchen Aid Crockpot which is all digital, with readouts and stuff. I was impressed (being somewhat technical myself).

A month went by and the inner stoneware as already cracked on her. And no she claims to have not dropped it or bumped it on something hard. Kitchen aid fully warranty'd it but she has since found out other people who own them have all had similar problems. One of them was on their 5th removable stoneware inner container that Kitchen aid keeps warranty'ing. (sorry is that a word? :) )

You might want to avoid that one until they get that figured out.

Kitchen Aid isn't exactly known for their SLOW COOKERS (only Rival is a Crock Pot). I would never buy a new Kitchen Aid counter appliance, you're basically paying for the name at this point, their products are inferior to what they used to be. I'd rather buy a 20 year old stand mixer from them than one manufactured last week.
