Gourmia DCP860 SlowSmart 8.5 Quart Digital Slow Cooker - Multiple Programmable Modes - Cool Touch Handles - Oval - Stainless Steel

SlowSmart Xpress Digital Programmable Slow Cooker Model #DCP860 by Gourmia
8.5 quart
I am super pleased with this heavy duty programmable slow cooker.
It is an oval shape with a big black glass heating cooking bowl (stoneware pot) on the inside. When I first took it out of the box I was very impressed. The big black bowl is thick and heavy. The clear tempered glass lid fits nicely. It has a black handle knob on the top of the glass lid to easily lift the hot lid when you are ready to sample the goodies inside.
It has two black handles attached to each side for lifting or moving around. If it was empty I would grab the whole pot and not just the handles because it is heavier than my others. I can imagine when it is full. I AM SUPER IMPRESSED. I LOVE NEW KITCHEN GADGETS FOR ME.

I started out by washing the black bowl and lid in hot soapy water. I know that is obvious but I just don't use the dishwasher for big things like this although it is dishwasher safe. I never would wash the electrical part in the sink or immerse in the water.
The cord is short but a safe short so that it isn't hanging down anywhere. You do need to plug it in somewhere that the short cord will reach.
This is definitely not to be used in the microwave or on any hot surfaces or burners. (I know that is obvious but just stating the facts.)
My counter top is just fine using this without anything under neath it and I didn't feel heat on my counter but I also have a counter top piece that fits under my slow cooker just in case. Never have had any issues but I know some counter tops don't like the heat for a long period of time.

There is a time display window that is digital on the front. Easy to set directions.
Low, Warm and High selector button and a timing program selection button.

I did a large beef pot roast with potatoes, carrots, onions, mushrooms then added celery the last hour (which was the only time I lifted the lid and it was done on high in about 4 1/2 hours. The whole house smelled amazing and I could leave the house knowing my meal was cooking and all would be well.

I am very pleased with this item and will be enjoying all of its features and learning more each meal I get the change to cook in it.
I can't say enough how much I like this manufacturer. They should be well known in each household. I would recommend this.
I did purchase this at a discount in exchange of my honest review.
