We ordered this slow cooker when we saw it on on Slickdeals. Last night, we made a turkey in it (the one from the included recipe book) and it turned out really well. We use our slow cooker a lot esp. in the winter and our other ones would constantly over cook the meat and even burn it. This turkey was a good as one you would eat on Thankgiving day.
I've tried purchasing the crock pot slow cooker w/ new technology for my family, when I entered the Promo code C3CV30SMT. I get a message that says it's no longer valid. I even contact their csr and it has been confirmed that it has expired.
I don't know how Rival does it since they've been in the crock game the longest but they have messed up temperature control on every Crock Pot we've owned. The warm setting it hotter than the low setting which has ended up in lots of burned dishes. I just thought that was they way of the crock until the cheap handles on the sides broke on our last one and we replaced it with a Hamilton Beach model.
The HB model we have is a smart crock with a thermometer that goes through the lid into whatever slab of meat you have in there and plugs into the side of the unit so it will kick down to warm after the meat hits your desired temperature. We really appreciate the locking lid which stopped the rattling and spitting of liquids we'd get with our other crock pots. It's really handy since we're always transporting something tasty to friend's and family's get togethers. We used to have to take great measures to ensure the old ones didn't spill in our car, with the locking lid not so much. And the BEST feature of all??? No more burnt sauces or other ingredients. The temperature controls work great, never too hot.
So while I encourage everyone to get into crock cooking for the extra goodness that only comes from low and slow cooking (seriously, I did a lasagna side by side test and the crock beat the oven handily) I cannot in good conscience recommend Rival anymore.
