You get what you pay for.
Cooking results were good the couple of times I got to use it.
Cleaning was easy, as can be expected with simple crock pots, the decorative front was a little more difficult as it wasn't a smooth surface.
After using for only a short three month period, while cooking in it the crockpot base fell away!
we have had 2 of these slow cookers in the past 2 years and both times the ceramic bowl has cracked. The last time the chemicals leached into the food and I was sick and the food was wasted. The smell as we came into our home was quite nasty and we knew something was wrong. When we emptied it out we saw the crack. Previously we had noticed the crack in the bowl first so nothing was cooked then thrown out
UPDATE: Beware of glass lid exploding!!!!!!!!
UPDATE: Had the slow cooker for about a year when the glass lid exploded just as dinner was nearing ready. I took it back with receipt for a full refund. I heard a loud "bang" to discover that dinner was ruined.
The first time I used this slow cooker there was a warm plastic smell in the air. The next time it was used it was gone thank goodness. There are 2 settings on the cooker, low ( to cook over 8 hours) and high ( to cook over 4 hours). It is a big 5 litres so it caters for a family of 7 big eaters. It is a great idea for someone w...ho has little time to prepare dinners in the evening. You can also use it to cook up bulk amounts of meat and chicken to freeze ready to use for other meals and lunches. If you want shredded meat/chicken, cook them over the 8 hours.

Questions & Answers
Can the glass lid go in the oven?
Can you please enlarge the heat dial?
Can I buy a replacement lid for this cooker
I don't know. They are sold complete.
I would measure the diameter of the lid and go round the op shops.
For instance my steamer lid is the same size. I'd ask Kmart though.
