Frigidaire Professional Stainless 7-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker

The device was well packaged by the manufacturer to protect against damage, but the unpacking process was a bit convoluted and involved more styrofoam and plastic bags than I'd have liked. Kudos for keeping the ceramic and glass safe, but I've seen much more delicate items packaged with less bulk and requiring less effort to unpack (Apple excels at this).

The slow cooker is surprisingly light given its overall size. Not so light as to feel cheap or 'disposable', but light enough that most anybody could stow or lift it to counter height without issue. Materials are well chosen, with real metal, glass, ceramic, and plastics that aren't overly cheap feeling. In my experience, slow cookers have typically been extremely simple devices that keep working until you give them away, lose them in a divorce, or decide that the '70's vegetable theme print on the outside is too hideous to endure any longer. Given the fit & finish on this device I have no reason to believe this slow cooker will be any different.

The device features conveniences such as a 'soup' and 'buffet' mode -- great for frequent entertainers or for those looking to serve up their tasty cooking at potlucks, etc. There is also a timed cooking mode for automatic preparation while you are away. Those with more basic needs will find familiar 'warm', 'low', 'med' and 'high' settings.

Hands down the standout feature of this slow cooker is its capacity. This is a professional-range capacity device and will more than handle cooking for large families and most entertaining needs.

Almost more important than capacity are the proportions. I have checked out other large capacity slow cookers and found many to be too narrow and deep, or too wide and shallow. The Frigidaire's proportions are right within the 'goldilocks zone'. Wide enough for two average sized roasts side-by-side, and deep enough for plenty of veggies while keeping everything immersed in liquid.

The removable crock and glass lid clean up easily in the sink or dishwasher, and drips and spills wipe cleanly from the stainless surfaces. The button and dial-free control panel is a smooth sealed surface so there are fewer places for crud to accumulate.
