I have this one, Hamilton Beach

It is really easy to use, simple to clean, and I literally set it and forget it. The programmable screen is pretty nifty and so far I have not had one problem (knock on wood). The price is a good and the reviews are plenty, which justified me buying it.

u/TrprKepr · 8 pointsr/slowcooking

Yes you want a crockpot with a timer. It will keep your food warm until you can get to it. It works very well and I have no problem leaving it on while I am at work. An outlet timer will turn it off completely and you start getting into issues with foodborne illnesses.

I have this this crockpot and its great. It is very highly reviewed and usually recommended on here.

u/SkiAliG · 8 pointsr/slowcooking

I use this Hamilton Beach one. I like that it's programmable, so even if I have an 8 hour recipe, it goes from low to warm by the time I get home. I've had it for a few years, in fact, I just made chili in it today!

u/jersully · 6 pointsr/slowcooking

I have the same problem, and I addressed it with a Hamilton Beach 33967 Set 'n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker. ($50 USD on Amazon w/Prime.)

What I actually wanted was an old slow cooker (the kind that cooks at lower temps before the USDA changes) on some sort of intelligent timer/variable power device but I know my limits.

I half expected disappointment, but I've been extremely pleased with it.

u/Iced_TeaFTW · 6 pointsr/slowcooking

I'm sorry, I don't know sizes, but I know it's a large one, and I'm going to guess 6 quart as it looks just like this one:

u/usernamesaretrite · 5 pointsr/slowcooking

I like this one. I love the handy probe that allows you to set the meat temperature. It's also large enough that you can fit just about anything.

u/crispysnugglekitties · 4 pointsr/slowcooking

I return things with nothing wrong with them for my work all the time. Not liking the product is sufficient enough reason in most cases. Worth a shot for sure. No need to spend a ton on a slow cooker; even if you only get a partial refund you can spend it on a cheaper one you'll likely be happier. I adore my $50 Hamilton Beach one.

u/AJ_Reddit · 3 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Here is the one I have:
It's kind of expensive but you could get a cheaper version without a timer and meat probe.
I like it because it has a timer that will cut the pot over to "warm" after however many hours you set it for. I am at work or commuting 11 hours a day so I need that, but you may not if you're not gone longer than 5-6 hours.
I also like that it has a meat probe. Sometimes I cook a whole chicken in it and set it to cut to "warm" once the chicken is at 165 degrees. Hope that helps!

u/RonUSMC · 3 pointsr/slowcooking

I went to Amazon and ordered the cooker with the best reviews. It is awesome.

u/workroom · 3 pointsr/food

Came here to say the same, you need more tech in the kitchen... I just got this slow cooker and you can do so much more than just stews, soups, and chilis... this has a meat thermometer so you can do whole roast chickens, pot roasts etc. and it turns itself to 'warm' mode when it's done.

I also got this book to go with it and love it, but there are loads of recipes for free online.

u/ImInPhx · 3 pointsr/slowcooking

I have been very happy with my Hamilton Beach 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker

Edit I just saw the uk part of your post, this product is currently not available on :( sorry about that.

u/handsoffme · 3 pointsr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuud

I just ordered a crock pot (this one if anyone else is thinking the same just so I can make this. Once it arrives and I come some up I will report back, thanks for the recipe!

u/madetoshine · 2 pointsr/slowcooking

I just bought this slow cooker. If you use the timer, it will cook for the time you set, and then switch to "warm."

u/Phaz · 2 pointsr/food

I've found for all the things that sit on your counter Amazon is a good resource. For each thing you could want there is typically a fairly decently priced set that is very highly reviewed. Such as these knives and this slow cooker.

I can't help you much with "healthy" food choices, I like meat :)

u/Saravi · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I absolutely can post a grocery list… because I need one or I forget things/buy too much/buy too little. I made this list awhile back to keep track of what (and how much of it) gets used in an average week.

Making a list is a very good habit to get into (IMO), especially if you’re buying a lot of perishable foods. Some items are sold in quantities that will easily carry over and last into the following week, so I adjust as needed.

A few things to keep in mind:

My focus is high volume (ultradistance) endurance training, not strength training, so my diet is heavy in the carbs department (oats, bread, pasta, potatoes).

I have myself, two kids (one teen w/adult appetite) and my husband to feed. I’ve struck out the few items that are strictly for my kids/husband. Half of the soup & bread plus some of the eggs is for them, too.

My kids are picky eaters and I don’t like making two meals (one for adults, one for kids). I can usually only get vegetables into them in the form of soup, chili and pasta sauce, so those get heavy rotation.

The list is not tight-budget-friendly and because I have the time for prepping everyting in advance, I do so. You can save a lot of time by buying frozen veggies or even pre-cooked frozen meat (chicken/beef strips), but it’s more expensive that way.

To give you an idea of where all of that food goes… mostly into me. My husband is content to have the same damned thing for breakfast every morning and he buys his lunch Mon-Fri. He is currently dieting to lose weight, so I have a somewhat different list now (and my kids hate me because I make them eat green things).

Breakfast: Some combination of oatmeal, cream of wheat, French toast or egg omelet w/bagel + yogurt + fruit (which I also snack on through the day or blend into smoothies).

Lunch: Sandwich (w/shredded chicken, lots of veggies, pressed cottage cheese or cheddar) + salad (topped with yogurt or cottage cheese, non-junky trail mix and berries/pomegranate). Alternatively soup + salad... sometimes all 3.

Dinner: 2x Chili (once with Tortilla chips topped with cheese, onion, green pepper; broiled to melt), 2x pasta (with salad on the side), 1-2x stir fry (sometimes vegetarian, usually with chicken) and rice, 1-2x chicken with baked, broiled or mashed potatoes + veggies.

How I make my chili (slow cooker):

Brown 2lbs lean ground beef, slice/dice 3 stalks celery, 1 green pepper, 1 white onion, add 2 tins Alymer’s tomatoes (do not drain water), 1 can red kidney beans (do not drain water), 2 tins mushrooms (fresh mushrooms fall apart; DO drain water), garlic, salt, pepper, 2 packages chili seasoning (Old El Paso/Clubhouse), stir. High to prepare in 4 hours, low to set and forget (8-10hrs). Takes about 20 min to prepare to cook. I store leftovers in the removable cooking pot.

How I make spaghetti sauce (slow cooker):

2lbs lean ground beef, 3 stalks celery, 2 tins Alymer’s tomatoes (drain about 3 quarters of the water), 1 sm can tomato paste, 2 tins canned pasta sauce, 1 diced green pepper, 1 diced onion, 4-5 lg fresh mushrooms, 5 cloves garlic, salt, pepper, basil, oregano, 1 tsp sugar, stir. Same cooking/storage instructions as above. Yeah… I have 2 slow cookers (one was a gift when we already had one).

Handy/helpful appliances: Kitchen grill with removable/reversible plates, rice cooker, BIG slow cooker.

Prep work:


This is the most time consuming prep (1-2hrs). It also requires a fair amount of tupperware. I make sure I have plenty of counter space, I wash my sinks/counter and rinse/wash everything thoroughly. I chop everything up to the appropriate size and use a lettuce spinner to dry off anything that doesn't last long when wet (mushrooms, lettuce, fruit). I add a fair amount of lemon juice (I transfer it to a spray bottle) to any sliced fruit to keep it from turning brown (also works on cucumber; added before spinning).

I store it all by meal/dish with lettuce kept separate to keep it dry. If lettuce is kept dry, it will last through the week. If it’s moist, three days, tops. You can mix most veggies together by meal with the exception of sliced tomatoes.

Same with fruit, which I usually sort by berries, grapes and "other" – other requiring lemon juice to keep.

I didn't include it under breakfast groceries, but I also tend to mix some finely chopped green pepper, green onion, tomato and mushrooms for omelets. I don't use the whole tomato, though. I just use the solid pieces, mixing the wet part with more green onion, chives and some olive oil to use as a topping on souvlaki (stored in its own small container).


I rarely stray from chicken/turkey. I sort of suck at cooking anything else.

I tend not to cook most of it in advance these days as I have more time than I used to, but I was much more pressed for time a few years back. It can be a little dry after a few days in the fridge, so it's best to put any pre-cooked chicken into a dish that moistens it up. As a standalone, it takes less than 10 minutes to grill (because the kitchen grill cooks from the top and bottom) and a whole chicken can be put in a slow cooker if you feel for it or roasted if you've got the time.

I use the serrated plate of the kitchen grill or barbecue to cook it and keep it in two separate tupperware containers: One is for shredded chicken (sandwiches). The other is for strips/cubes (destined for stir fry or chicken caesar salad). It’s much easier to shred/slice when cold.

u/cbfreder · 2 pointsr/slowcooking

Just a word of caution...

I have this one, but it sometimes turns off without my approval. I've ruined stuff with it, so I only use it when I am home. More recently, I have been experimenting with my sous vide for my slow cooking fix.

edit: after d12anoel's reply, I checked with amazon. visit amazon and select the negative reviews.

u/mst3k_42 · 2 pointsr/Cooking

I have heard that some of the newer ones do tend to run "hot," but I haven't had that problem. I also always cook my food on low for 7-9 hours instead of on high.

I recently bought a new one that I absolutely love, off Amazon.
Mine is $49, with the lid that clamps down so you can travel with it:

But they also make one that isn't for travel that's only $40:

It's programmable and super easy to use. I love mine.

u/toxirau · 2 pointsr/slowcooking

This could be your problem. I had the same problem when I bought a Crock Pot branded slow cooker from a pretty well named store. Took it back and spend 30 bucks more for a nice Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker/pressure cooker with latches. Everything comes out perfect now!

u/Sikash · 2 pointsr/HealthProject

I would suggest getting a Crock-Pot if you are up for it. I currently have and it is definitely one of my best kitchen investments. There are tons of cheap and healthy meals that you can cook in a large batch. I tend to freeze half and eat the rest over the course of a week and it's perfect.

u/Viginti · 1 pointr/slowcooking

Just found this sub. Loving it already.

I bought this one about a year ago. I love it and have used it often. Never really needed the meat thermometer as of now though. Love the settings and size of it.

10/10 would buy again.

u/SnarkyFiasco · 1 pointr/pics

I really like this one because you can put a timer on it and once it is done it switches to keep warm. This way you don't have to rush home to turn it off.

u/emmarie7 · 1 pointr/pics

Also, this slow cooker is really cool because of the thermometer it has. I feel a little safer about leaving it running while I'm out of the house.

u/jmurphy42 · 1 pointr/slowcooking

Unless you somehow wind up purchasing the exact same model, I don't think reusing the old crock/lid would be a wise experiment. I'd pitch them.

If you don't like the look of the cookers in the recommended thread, you can try Consumer Reports (your local library should have it), or look at the top-rated ones on Amazon.

Personally I've got this one, and have been very happy with it.

u/gregariousone · 1 pointr/Cooking

I prefer the fancier one for $10 more, but Hamilton Beach is definitely the way to go. The ability to secure it for travel alone makes it the Iceberg Slim of slow cookers. I will now go make some beef stew in mine.

u/monkeymynd · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I've been thinking about getting one as well, and I've seen this one mentioned quite a bit. I have it on my wishlist. It has a timer, good size, not very expensive, and it seems to have a lot of good reviews.

Hamilton Beach Set 'n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker

u/kiln · 1 pointr/food

I got this one:

pros about this one:
-There is a timer on it. I use it to make steel cut oats overnight.
-The lid clips on. I can easily bring it to a potluck (yes, I live in Minnesota).
-There is also a temp probe. You can set it to shut off when a particular temperature is reached.
-It's 6 qts. I never ever used my old, smaller one, but I use this one about twice a week.

u/Hjoranna · 1 pointr/7dollardinners

I have had this one for several years and I love it. I have used it to make sausage and kraut, navy beans and ham, pot roast, chili, soup, sloppy joes, and stew.

u/LinguistHere · 1 pointr/slowcooking

I have this 6qt cooker, which is a very popular model.

Some folks report having problems with it (unexpected shutoffs, etc) but I've used mine many dozens of times without any problems.

u/BillDaCatt · 1 pointr/slowcooking

It's probably time to replace your slow cooker. My old one ran way too hot and would boil water on LOW. My Hamilton Beach doesn't do that.

When cooking in my slow cooker, almost nothing except stews and soups need any added liquid. Even without adding water or broth, roasts, chicken, and other meats are nearly swimming when they are done cooking; with or without vegetables.
