My lid wobbles as well. Maybe we have old technology?

Ok come on ladies with the new "slow cooker" tech. Fess up. Do your lids wobble and spit?

Re: Recommend a crockpot

I have two Cuisinart slow cookers. One is 3.5 qts and a 6.5 quart . They do not wobble or let steam out.

I also have a cheap-o 1.5 quart. I don't know the brand, but I bought it more recently from Ace Hardware for like $5. It doesn't wobble or steam either, but I've never used it on high.

Re: Recommend a crockpot

I am looking for a new crockpot. The one I have cooks way to high even on low.

I wanted a programmable one, so the one that was linked from HB was the one I was thinking of getting. We leave the house by 7 and are home around 5, so I like the warm feature. I would NEVER leave the current crock pot I have on when I'm not home.

We have this one, the HB linked to on amazon: http://www.hamiltonbeach.com/product...ker-33863.html
Works great, tends to cook faster than many recipes allot for time.

I tried searching but got everything crock pot related. Feel free to link me to previous threads on crock pots.
Only real requirements I have is that I do need it to be 5-6 quarts.

So any suggestions, pros and/or cons are appreciated

Thank you
Kelly
Giving this a bump.....anyone else?

Re: Recommend a crockpot

I got the Ninja cooking system for an early Christmas gift, it is REALLY cool and so far I am enjoying using it!
