CONSTRUCTION AND LOOKS

This is a good-looking slow cooker which comes in red or silver. The red colour is proving very popular although to our eyes it looks a bit garish. The handles are large and, unusually, not hot to touch.
The cooking bowl is good enough to serve direct to your table but getting it out of the holder is tricky especially when it's hot. The pot seems reasonably steady but note that it only has three legs not the normal four. The legs keep the slow cooker high off the surface below.
This is a 5.7 litre slow cooker, easily able to cook meals for 6 or 7 but that does mean it's large. Make sure you have a work surface large enough before buying.

SIZES AND CAPACITIES

Large but not huge is how we would describe this slow cooker. The approximate dimensions are H:250mm W:415mm D:300:mm. The overall weight is 5.22kg with the cooking pot weighing in at 2.9kg. The power lead (removable) is just about long enough for most situations.

COOKING PERFORMANCE

The Crock-Pot Cook and Carry slow cooker does a good job of cooking on low and high although it cooks quicker than most other slow cookers, see the results  of our temperature tests below.

This slow cooker has three heat settings, high, low and keep warm. The low setting produces a higher temperature compared to all the other slow cookers we have tested - 36°C / 97°F. The high setting gave a temperature of 37.7°C / 100°F. Both of these are too high for a slow cooker. The keep warm setting is spot on at 23.3°C / 74°F.

FEATURES

The key feature of the Crock-Pot SCCPVL600S slow cooker is its ability to safely transport hot and cooked food. The lid has a rubber gasket and it can be sealed into place with the securing arms on the lid.

You are also provided with a well fitting and insulated carry case. All those features make the job of transporting food very easy.

 Carry bag

There are three heat setting but no timer. What will disappoint many is the lack of a red light to indicate when the slow cooker is in use. One plus though is the removable power lead. Both the bowl and lid are dishwasher safe.

OTHER REVIEW OPINIONS

There are a number of reviews on the internet for this slow cooker and almost all are good. There is no mention of reliability problems although one user found the securing handles broke after a short period of time.

Bought it because we often take food to our son's house, now it's cooked food! Transports without ant spillage whatever.
