  • We could easily stick a large roast in there without any problem, and still be able to fit vegetables around the meat, instead of on top or underneath it
  • There's been a couple close calls, when I'm wearing my giant oven mits and lifting the pot up, that it's felt a little wobbly in my grip and I thought for sure the dinner was going to end up all over the kitchen floor and probably myself in the process
  • I love that I can take the pot right off the base and store leftovers in the fridge directly in the pot, and since the lid creates a really nice seal, I don't have to worry about the food getting moisture and condensation dripping all over it
  • I ended up giving it to a friend of mine who liked the red since it went with many of her other appliances, and she uses it three times a week, but we enjoyed it while we had it and appreciated the large wide pot

      When my husband and I got married, a couple that we know decided to buy as a slow cooker as a house-warming, congrats-on-your-marriage combo gift, since moving in together and getting married seemed to happen almost simultaneously, and we had very little in the way of appliances and decor. We’d already purchased a slow cooker that we loved, but gave this Kalorik Stainless Steel Slow Cooker, which was a 7 qt cooker, in a red and black color, a shot. It didn’t really go with our other kitchen appliances, but it was a really nice slow cooker regardless.

      The design was very nice, and the one thing I liked about it, in comparison to the one we bought ourselves, was that it had a very wide and large pot, verses being very deep. We could easily stick a large roast in there without any problem, and still be able


      to fit vegetables around the meat, instead of on top or underneath it. And the seven quart capacity was larger than the one we had purchased, and we found that we did require it from time to time, because we’ve had parties several times and needed to prepare a larger amount of food in those instances. It’s oval-shaped, and the red color is very pretty. I’d have probably liked it more if our other appliances were red as well.

      The pot is stoneware, and can get very hot very fast, and the handles aren’t as large as I’d like for a pot that size. There’s been a couple close calls, when I’m wearing my giant oven mits and lifting the pot up, that it’s felt a little wobbly in my grip and I thought for sure the dinner was going to end up all over the kitchen floor and ...


      • probably myself in the process.

        The temperature control dial can go from off to warm, to low and then high. I’d have preferred the settings were a little more in-depth, offering several numbers or heats to choose from, but these three settings have proved sufficient enough once we learned the ropes of how well it heated. It has a clear see-through glass lid, so you can always keep an eye on whatever it is you are cooking, and the lid has a stainless steel rim and a knob that stays cool to the touch. It was nice to be able to lift the lid up to stir or check on the progress of the food without having to grab oven mits each and every time.

        I love that I can take the pot right off the base and store leftovers in the fridge directly in the pot, and since

        the lid creates a really nice seal, I don’t have to worry about the food getting moisture and condensation dripping all over it. The handles are also supposed to be cool to the touch, and for the most part they are, but they are such small handles that you’re hands are still really close to the very hot stoneware pot. I still prefer to use pot holders when I’m picking the pot up out of the base. All said, though, it was a great gift and we’ve used it many times over. I ended up giving it to a friend of mine who liked the red since it went with many of her other appliances, and she uses it three times a week, but we enjoyed it while we had it and appreciated the large wide pot. Sometimes it’s nice to have a pot that’s wider than it is deeper.
