Not so Smart Crock Pot
Digital and automatically goes to "hold warm."
Cons listed in my review.
I have had a problem with this Rival Smart Crock-pot from the first day I received it and tried it out less than a year ago. Everything I made in it was always dried out. The oval top never fit snugly on the ceramic base which makes me think that is the main reason everything I cooked in it dried out. I contacted Rival and told them that not only did the top not fit securely on the ceramic base but the ceramic base itself wobbled around inside the metal pot. I was told they were "made that way." Oh sure... As if that wasn't bad enough the last time I made a meal the entire ceramic base had hairline cracks inside and outside of it. After cleaning it I stored it away in plastic in a box over the summer and just took it out today to use. Imagine my surprise to see every single crack had spores/mold growing from them, inside and out the ceramic base. I'm not sure now whether to throw it out in the trash or call the Environmental Protection Agency to see what's sprouted in it...
