Love the non stick and the size. Big fan of the analog dial instead of the digital display.
The product works but the parts are falling of or loosing up. I’ve had to tighten the lid- it wobbles cause the little plastic feet feel off. For this size should came with a secure lock so you can commute with it. Already have to buy a new one.
Ordered as a gift works flawlessly. Here are the specifications for the Magic Mill 10 Quart Slow Cooker 3 Manual Heat Settings Removable Pot:
- Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.
- 3 Convenient settings Low, High & Keep Warm Temperature settings.
- Full grip cool to touch handles, See-through tempered-glass. locking lid for split free and easy transfer
- Polished silver, stainless steel exterior with black accents and plastic handles
It was big enough for three nice size pot roasts and cooked all three very evenly.
This cooker works just right. I like that it has a variable heat so i can turn it down real low. I saw where other reviewers complained about the surface of the non-stick pan. The pan is rough, but it is definitely non-stick. We’ve cooked in it several times and cleanup was easy so i don’t know what the fuss was about with other reviewers. This is just the right size to cook a roast or big pot of chili.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Great little roaster
- It cleaned up very easy. I love to cook ham
- Works like it should!
Like most other slow cookers today it cooks too hot for both settings. Need to use warm setting for long cooking. Sad no one has designed a ceramic coated insert like the new fry pans.
Used it at christmas for a 16 lb ham. Worried it wouldn’t fit, but it did. Must have size when cooking for a bigger crowd.
I can make my stew in it with plenty of headspace. No boil overs and i love that the insert is stainless steel and not ceramic as the ceramic makes it difficult to lift when full. I also don’t have to worry if i drop it that it will break.
I love this slow cooker, granted it is my first one, but it is so easy to use and even easier to clean. Even though it’s large, i’ve made some smaller things in it. Love it, and would highly recommend :).
I’ve had a 6qt version for a long time i used regularly, but often for soups, stews, or chilis, it was too small for our family- this one is perfect. If you’re accustomed to a smooth ceramic crock you may find the rough texture of the thin metal insert off-putting, but 1) it’s easier to clean than a ceramic crock, 2) it’s not going to break or crack, and 3) it’s a lot lighter.
This magic mill slow cooker does the job with efficiency. I truly admire its easy as pie instructions. I would love to gift this to my mom-in-law.
It is exactly what i wanted.
I love this that it is so light weight since i have problems with heavy crock pots. It is a little big for me as i get older, i make smaller meals and if they brought out one in 5 quart, i would also buy it.
It’s got a polished silver with black accents and i like how pretty it looks. It totally does look expensive.
I personally prefer this over other slow cooker because the locking lid of this one helps transferring become so easy and less painful for whoever is cooking in my kitchen, which means me.
Overall i like it, what i don’t like is that the inner dish very poorly painted as well as its kind of sticky when i put the dish in and out it works fine although i have not cooked anything as yet. Please note about the delivery well this time around it was untimely aswell as inconvient for me i had to drive miles to collect the item myself simply because of the delay.
I’ve had this for about a month now, and so far have used it about 4 times for making various slow cooker stews. It’s worked awesome for this so far. I took one star away for two reasons: because the fit and finish of the stainless looks slightly discolored and a little rough around the edges, and because for the life of me, i could not figure out how to make the lid holders near the handles work (though now thinking about it, maybe they are for strapping down the lid rather than holding it open. Other than that, this is exactly what i was looking for and has worked perfectly. I have not had a chance to use it as a roaster, but i believe there will be pulled pork and brisket in my future (the meat is already bought :)when i received my unit i measured the pan volume using water and a measuring cup. I would say the 8qt measurement is both technically accurate and generous to the unit, in that it does hold 8qts exactly. Any more and it would spill over the sides. You will not be putting 8qts in this pot and still be able to put the lid on, or even be able to cook it (due to thermal expansion of the contents) without a decent spill. As for those reviews i’ve seen on here about the nonstick coating.
I have it for many years and just bought another one. It works perfect, very strong machine, able to clean it very fast.
Just what i wanted to replace an older roaster.
For those who find it hard to fit your chili recipe in an 8qt crock, this is the one for you. Basic high, med & low settings with no timer, but if more space is what you need. You can’t go wrong with this purchase.
Perfect size and cleans up great.
