I bought this model because it was on offer, and had reasonable reviews here and elsewhere. I was replacing an old Tower Auto cook Crockpot that ia to small for us all (6 adult appetites) so this size is great. I was a bit annoyed though when it arrived and said on box 6.5lt but only 4.5lt? (think it was that but thrown box away now), working capacity - now Morphy Richards lets be fair, you should be clear about this before we buy , thats around 2lts different and as the size is probably the selling point versus the smaller one lets have clarity on this issue!
It does cook hotter than the Tower, but I don't object to this as use it on Low, infact I prefer a slightly higher heat as the Tower tended to leave a slightly greasy taste in casseroles. But I do miss the Auto setting which took the concern out of cooking as switched to low after inital faster cooking, so could leave it to keep cooking longer if desired. I might have bought the one with a timer if I'd not been seduced by the offer on this one!
However overall very pleased with this both in performance, size and aesthetically so far. The removable pot is a must and the glass lid stops you wanting to open the pot to see whats happening.
I do wonder about the economy though, as it used 330w which is more than light bulb! It might be less on LOW...
