What customers say about "Key Specs"
Cuisinart MSC-600 Multi-Cooker
  • I sometimes use the timer on my slow cooking which will automatically switch it over to a warm setting after slow cooking.
  • The timer goes off and voila! dinner is ready! Clean up is super easy too and it definitely is a no stick pan.
  • I like the timer which helps prevent overcooking but still keeps food warm.
  • The interior pan is made of aluminium and has a non-stick coating.
  • Nor can you set a delay timer to start cooking at a future time.

  • I love this crockpot. Has a large capacity, is programmable, and has latches on it to seal for transportation.
  • This crock is amazing! I love the 6 quart capacity! Perfect for a large family!
  • The 6-quartz capacity of the pot inside could feed up to seven people or more, depending on their appetite, also being able to fit in a whole chicken.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Cuisinart MSC-600 Multi-Cooker
  • It looks big and my wife was concerned when she saw the size of the box. But it fits into the same space as our old crock pot. We just have to flip the lid upside down, because it's a little taller.
  • The size of the pot is just right to feed a family of 4-6. If you have a larger crew, this might not be an optimal size.
  • The 6 quart is a great size - we easily get 6 meals from one cooking session.
  • Whole unit is light weight. Love it so far!
  • My husband cannot use his left arm, so the weight was a concern. But empty, he is able to take the two pieces individually over to the counter. By browning and cooking all in the same vessel, clean-up is a breeze, its far safer and the various options are fabulous.
Crock-Pot SCCPVL610-S Programmable Slow Cooker
  • The handles are a good size which makes it easy to carry.
  • Good crock pot and size is nice for a potluck. It does get really hot, so, dishes that may take all day, may cook in less hours. Try keeping an eye on it the first time you use and adjust time as needed.
  • The lid seemed a bit light weight and I was worried that it would not seal properly. However, it did a good job on my first use.
  • Easy to use and light weight.
  • My only criticism is that the lid gasket seems a little bit thin for the size of the inner pot, so I often find myself fiddling with lid placement for an optimal seal.

What customers say about "Features"
Cuisinart MSC-600 Multi-Cooker
  • It also seems to have an ideal Low setting, and its programmable and stay-warm functions work excellently.
  • Good product and performs as advertised, but the LCD sreen is SUPER bright. Leave it cooking overnight And you will think you left the kitchen light on (and colored it blue).
  • There is a high heat and lower heat slow cook function so you can choose what works for your life. I have not had a slow cooker that automatically went to keep warm after programming was completed, so I prefer this one that will keep the food safely warm until eaten instead of overcooking.
  • Searing beef and browning onions in the same pot, then adding vegetables and stock for slow cooking, being able to see through the lid, cleaning up easily (nothing stuck to the non-stick liner - it was easily washed by hand, though it could go in the dishwasher).
  • Very easy to use, the timer is excellent as it'll shut off on it's own so it makes cooking while at work a snap.
  • My wife absolutely loves this slow cooker, and I would have gladly given it 5 stars, but after 6 months of use the Teflon coating has started to bubble, as mentioned in other reviews.
Crock-Pot SCCPVL610-S Programmable Slow Cooker
  • I liked the look of this one because it has a convenient touchscreen & long cook time, similar to the more expensive Cook's Illustrated recommended crock-pot. And the latched travel lid seemed like a cute feature.
  • The programmable feature is wonderful! I love that it automatically shifts to warm when done. I love not having to worry about my house burning down, or overcooked meals anymore.
  • It heat's up really quickly and even has a warm function for you so that you can keep the food warm if you are not ready to eat when it is done.
  • It is really easy to clean. Just some warm and soapy water is all it takes. I wash and dry mine as soon as I get done with it and it cools off a little bit.
  • The auto shut off saves me from burning food.
  • Bad through, the lid is very poor, with 2 months off, I really want to return.
  • The latches are annoying if at home during regular use and you're not going to haul if off somewhere.
