Not only do I own a 6 quart KA mixer, but also an Artisan food processor. When it came time to replace my slow cooker, my first choice was of course, KitchenAid. I love this slow cooker. Like all KA appliances, it is both aesthetically pleasing and a workhorse as well. Cleans like a breeze, cooks chef-worthy meals and looks great on my countertop. Don't waste money on a cheap slow cooker, get the best name in countertop appliances and you'll have years of great meals.

Ceramic insert doesn't hold up

Our kitchen is full of KitchenAid products, so I am surprised at the poor quality of the slow cooker's insert. I received this cooker as a Christmas gift last year, have used it less than 2 dozen times, if that, and the ceramic insert cracked while using it a couple weeks ago. I smelled a burning smell - lifted out the insert - only to find the stew had somehow "spilled" into the metal area of the slow cooker. That "spill" turned out to be a leak from a hairline crack in the insert. Given the way we care for our cookware, electrics, etc - cool before washing, storing carefully (inside, room temp), etc., I am perplexed at how easily (and soon) this insert failed.This review does not reflect my satisfaction with KitchenAid products in general, but I would not purchase this slow cooker again and do not recommend it to others. For the price, this slow cooker should have lasted years, not months.

Slow cooker star
from Woodridge, IL
The Kitchrn Aid slow cooker's oval shape and size gives us all the space we need, even with large quantities. It is a handsome addition to our counter top. Highly recommend.
Simple Yet Elegant

Really nice product. Cooks beautifully and evenly. Very simple to operate. No frills. Just does its job.
Does not heat up, does not work
from Chicago, IL
I just got it today and immediately tried to cook a beef stew to see if it worked as expected. I cut the meat in small pieces and added about 1 1/2 cups of liquid and set it on high for 6 hours. After 5 hours it was not even boiling, so I added 2 more hours and an onion cut in small pieces. After 7 hours the meat and onion were not cooked. I had to remove them from the pot and finish cooking them in another slow cooker I have at home. I plan to return it tomorrow, but hate having to go thru the trouble of returning it. Based on other reviers with the same problem, the product should be discontinued and shows that quality control is not good because Kitchenaid is selling and shipping a defective product.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
no temp guide line
I used the slow cooker and it didn't cook anything even on high! I love Kitchen-aid products but this one comes up short. no where is it stated what temperature rangefor any temperature setting!It is like pushing those dummy street crossing buttons and waiting for ever to cross
Bought this with a wedding gift card. Used it like 6 times and it quit working. Gives me worry about leaving in cooking when I'm not home. Of course I called and got the "out of warranty" and un willing to help. used this like 6 times! I will never buy KitchenAid again!
Bought this cooker because it was programable. I cannot get it to work. It will not let me select a temperature and then select the cooking time. It turns off. Want the ease of selecting the cooking time and the temp. Please let me know what I am doing wrong.
I really really like it!
I bought this on clearance. It was the last one they had. I have 3 other crock pots, I bought this one because of the way it looked! "I'm booshie when it comes to electronics/appliances." I wanted to sit this on my counter so quickly I didn't even bother with the instructions, so I didn't know how to program it to go off when needed, HOWEVER. Now that I know, I LOVE IT!. The price I paid was unreal but I would've paid the full price "sale price". From the other reviews people were saying it wasn't getting hot. I believe Kitchen Aid being Kitchen Aid would've assist with that. Now I'm looking to buy a mixer I'll probably use once. Can't wait to find the right price for that.

KitchenAid 6-Quart Slow Cooker
from Cerritos, CA
I returned it after one use. Meat was not tender after 5 hours of cooking on high. I even added 2 or 3 hours more and still was not tender at all. The whole time, it was barely simmering. I had to transfer everything to a pot and cook the rest on the stove. Too bad because I really liked the features and the look of this model. Everything is good about this model except the performance. Returned and repurchased my previous model.
