    Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel 4-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker:

    When it says programmable I thought I could set it to come on at a time of day I wanted it too. It has a 24 hour clock and when you turn it on you just set it for how many hours you want it to cook.

    Although I can't set it to come on at a certain time it is very nice because it will go to warm after the cooking time has finished.

        Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel 4-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker:

        Had the larger Cuisinart Slow Cooker but this is the perfect size for two people. Like the design, boxy smooth exterior is easy to clean, minimal little spaces to collect dirt. Retractable cord is so practical and timer, while simpler than the one on larger model, does everything you need. No cons at all for me.

          Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel 4-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker:

          WHY I BOUGHT THIS:
          I loved my old 4qt crockpot (Proctor Silex?), which was tall and round, but it died after many years of service. I replaced it with a Rival 38501-W 5-Qt Round Smart-Pot, which was stouter and slightly oval. Turns out 5 qt is too much for my two-adult household - the appropriate amount to feed the two of us, plus one leftover meal, was simply not enough to fill up the 5qt, and as a result the food would barely reach halfway up the sides of the crock and would scorch; the liquids would also boil over because the lid did not fit well or something. So I bought this Cuisinart 4qt.

          THE PRODUCT:
          The Cuisinart crock is tall and round, so our meals load better (take up more vertical space) in the crockpot and thus cook properly. The crock handles are quite large and don't get too hot to handle, which is a nice feature though not a critical one for me. The glass lid is sturdy (just heavy enough) and fits the crock very well. The knob on the lid is chromed plastic, I think, but looks fine and doesn't feel as cheap as I was expecting.

          The overall unit is sleek and looks appealing on the countertop, though it does take up much more counter space than my old (very basic) Proctor Silex 4qt. So, this is probably not the best choice for small litchens with limited counter space. The unit's handles are sufficient (chromed plastic? definitely not metal) but I can see why other reviewers might think they feel too insubstantial for the unit: they might be insubstantial if you tried to lift the unit with a full pot of food (like taking the whole thing to a potlock party?).

          The description of the display can be misleading. The display is just a countdown timer - just shows how much cooking time remains. There is NO CLOCK and NO PROGRAMMABLE DELAY. The unit starts cooking when you set the cooking duration and pick your heat setting. This isn't really much of a problem in my opinion, since most crock pot recipes can be cooked 4-5 hrs on High or 8-10 hrs on Low to accomodate your schedule. The feature I appreciate most is the automatic Keep Warm function. When the cooking cycle is done, the LED shows the change over to Warming, and the clock then shows the "warming" countdown... so be sure that you're not fooled into thinking your pot is still cooking :)

          I greatly appreciate the retractable cord!!

          Also comes with a basic cookbook and a rack for steaming a 1-qt ramekin.

          BOTTOM LINE: Perfect for small families - 2 adults for one dinner meal plus lunchtime leftovers, or 4 adults for one dinner. 1.5 to 2 lb roasts fit just right.

            Comments about Cuisinart Stainless Steel 4-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker:

            It's really easy to use, and easy to clean. I'm not sure if this exists, but I wish I could program the slow cooker to cook at different temperatures at different times. For example, I wish I could program it to cook at high for 4 hours, then switch to low for 3 hours. This does have a timer on it, though, for one temperature setting, and it works great.

                I have had this cooker for only a few weeks now, but it is the perfect size for my family, and does really nice job. There are actually 4 of us, two adults and two kids, and still this is fine unit (although we use it mainly to cook vegetarian dishes). Versatile, and solidly built. So far so good.
