BLTYRONE does the smell affect the food? or just the smell in the house while it is in use? If only a smell and no adverse affect to the food maybe you can use it outside???

I would definitely recommend this crockpot for baking...many things that I bake only need about 2 hrs so the programming feature allows that.

I did however, send HB an email requesting more types of programming for example: a delayed start; high for a certain time, low for a certain time and then off or to warm

OR in the bread example low then high then off...

Guess I'll need to get a new one when they come out:-)

I bought the same one recently...hubby destroyed my old "trusty" by accidentally putting a plastic lid under the crock...henceforth putting a putrid plastic burning smell whenever used it.

I love this!! I haven't used the temperature probe yet. I've only used it three times so far, but with good results.

I noticed mine has developed a hotspot that is starting to give me trouble in alot of foods. I'm in a small town in the middle of nowhere so my Goodwill doesn't have any crockpots. Otherwise that's definitely where I'd be getting mine from.

So I've realized I need to start looking and educate myself (DARN guess I'll have to buy a NEW one!).

Mine was a splurge for me...I usually pick up slow cookers at Goodwill for about $5 or even $2.50 if it's the last weekend of the month when everything is 1/2 price in our area. It's amazing how people get them or get them as gifts and then don't use them.

I just don't expect to see this model there anytime soon.

I just saw that one this weekend and thought about getting it- but settled for a cheapy one (its to go in our camper for horse shows). I will probably get this Hamilton for my next house crock though,

I've had mine for years. Mine did not come with the clamps or spoon. I got it because after my last crockpot burned out and would not work anymore I wanted to use the insert for my new one which I can do. I'm planning on getting the baking insert for it so I can start baking with it.

Cooked my first dish to today similar to the standard crockpots.

chicken/carrots/onions/cream mushroom soup

It did the 8 hrs low switch to warm.

I thought no big deal, but we've eaten supper now and I like the seal around the lid. This crockpot has clips to clamp the lid on to keep it from spilling plus a slot to carry a spoon(comes with the crockpot). I think the seal kept the chicken more moist than my other crocks have done...

I really bought this pot for baking, but won't get a chance to bake till later in the week

Will keep you posted on this thread...
