Which Slow Cooker Do I Use and Why? It’s on Sale!

The Hamilton Beach 33967 Set ‘n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker is currently on sale for just $37.99, regularly $59.99! This is the exact slow cooker I have.  I spent a long time researching slow cookers and Hamilton Beach was the only brand that states their crock was led free.  I love this model for many reasons.


  • It’s big.  It’s large enough to cook  a meal plus leftovers for my big family.
  • The lid locks on.  You don’t have to worry about spills in the car when you take your meal with you to a pot luck.
  • It’s programmable.  You can program it to cook for a certain amount of time.  When it’s finished it switches to warm mode until you are ready to eat.


  • It’s digital.  This means if the electricity goes out for a moment or two, it won’t turn itself back on.  It would be extremely disappointing to come home from a work to a half cooked meal.
  • It cooks hotter than my old crockpot.  I don’t know if this is really a con, but things tend to boil in this model and they didn’t in my old crockpot.

What do I cook in my slow cooker?

    I think the newer crock pots do run hotter — and I don’t like that either.

    I recently bought a new crock pot too and mine is very similar. Many of the reviews on Amazon said the same thing about it running hotter.

    The first thing I noticed is that the removable crock isnt as thick as my old one was, so I just saved my old one and plan to use it if I need a slower working crock pot. It fits just fine, so it’ll be ok.

    Just thought I’d share that with you.
