I guess my concern is that with most "Crock Pots" or "Slow Cookers" the ceramic liner sits totally inside the outer casing with just the upper lip showing, but from what i see of this unit, only the bottom part (what maybe a third?) is in the casing and the rest is outside (above)

Does this make it hotter on the bottom of the ceramic bowl? Does it take longer to get to temperature? Do you still limit the content to about 3/4 full? Is there room in the larger bowl to cook a roast?

Sorry for the many questions, but this would be a major investment for me so trying to make the best choice possible.

I have had my HB CP for several months now & love it! The large (6 qt) is great for making big pots of Taco Soup, etc. The leftovers can be frozen in separate containers for later. I use the 4 qt. a lot for dried beans, etc. The smaller 2 qt is great for dips, keeping something warm, etc.

My only concern is that it takes up a little more space on my counter than my old one.....I think mainly because of the handles.

Good luck with your choice & happy "crocking".

A couple of people mentioned that they had bought or were thinking of buying the Hamilton Beach 3 in one with the 2, 4 and 6 quart inserts.

On the surface this sounds wonderful. I live in a very tiny apartment and don't have room for several different units but I sometimes need a smaller one, sometimes a medium size.

So my question is simply..... how does this one cook. Does anyone have any concerns with the unit? Or raves?

Thanks in advance for any information provided....
