Over the weekend I tried the Crock-Pot 6-Quart Smart-Pot Slow Cooker to see how it compared to the 4-quart version that I tested earlier this month. The results were pretty similar, and that’s good news! I really enjoyed the small one, and was happy with the meal I made with the larger one. So let’s dig into some of the details of what makes this model from Crock-Pot a recurring review on FoodForNet, and how it compares to other six quart slow cookers.
Normally I like to review slow cookers that are part of a lineup like Cook and Carry or Set ‘n Forget, but this time I decided to purchase, test, and review a very unique slow cooker just because it looked so different: the Crock-Pot 6.5-Quart Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker. There are a few main things which make this cooker unique, which should be immediately obvious just by looking at the photo on the top of this page. But can looks and fun features really make a difference in your slow cooking? Let’s take a look at what you get with the Crock Pot SCVT650-PS.
This is not the largest appliance that Crock-Pot makes, but almost! Actually, the also offer an 8-quart version, which is also manual, and only a few bucks more expensive. So this one could be described as large, or medium large. It can feed up to 9 people, or cook a 7 pound roast. Wow, that’s a big roast! Hey, maybe you could fit a small turkey in here too.
The 7-quart manual slow cooker from Crock-Pot is shockingly inexpensive for the size, and it’s not much more expensive than the smaller versions they offer like the four quart cooker I reviewed recently.
