- I doubt if very many people ever got sick from food in a crockpot that was fresh when it went it. The gov. has gone crazy with all their food safety when all it really takes is a bit of common sense!! I have used my old one thousands of times, it still cooks perfectly, and no, I have never had anyone with food poisoning!

- I want to use it during the week when I work and even on low the food is overcooked and often burned. When I made soup last weekend on low, it was boiling when I checked on it after 4 hours.

- I don't like the hotter temperature! Food that I cook frequently burns. My old crockpot tempurature was just right!
- I use my crockpot for meals to arrive home to after a long day at work. These hotter models usually burn the food or turn it to mush!
- I didn't realize they were making them different. I thought something was wrong with mine. I'm afraid to leave it cooking like I used to do because it cooks so fast. Bring back the old!
I even phoned the company
- I was told they all boil the food. I am so disappointed.

- I love crock pot cooking. I do chicken breasts, veg, beans and chilli to mention a few. I do not have one of the new ones. But, do have one with a controled temp and the other with just low and high. I always start my food on high and I am basically lazy so use the crock pot liners. I am a widow so the crock pot solves a lot of problems for me. As long as my old ones work I will not be purchasing a new one. But, you never know what you may get for a gift. Marian in ND

- My new crock pot's crock cracked after just three uses and I can't find a replacement. I have seen where people complain that the cooker gets much hotter, but they didn't do anything to make the crock more heat resistent.

too hot crock pots
- perhaps they should sell them with timers to make them come on after you leave the house
Way too hot!
- I have used a newer crockpot but am much happier with my really old one (with a nonremovable insert)! The outside of my old crockpot only gets slightly warm to the touch, whereas I have burned myself by brushing against the outside of the newer crockpot. Of course the newer crockpot is larger, but I'll use the old crockpot rather than risk having my family and guests be safer from being burned by the outside of the newer crockpot.

Not long enough cooking times
- Because the newer crockpots are cooking hotter, recipes aren't taking as long to cook. I need recipes that cook for 10 hours so I'm very limited in what I can make.

Loss of convenience
- The whole point was to have an unwatched meal. I strongly disapprove of the higher temps. I have noticed burning problems in my 1-year-old name brand cooker using recipes that previously were perfect.
I like mine, but I'm home with it.
- I like that my small crockpot cooks hotter and faster, but I work at home so I don't leave for eight hours a day. If I did, I couldn't cook with this one the same way I did with my old one when leaving it for hours on end didn't matter. Since I'm aware that this one cooks faster, I adjust accordingly. I can see why this is a dilemma for recipe writers. Linda, I really appreciate your solution of adding two cooking times to your recipes. Thank you!

- I don't care for the new slow cookers because when I get home from work, the food is ALWAYS overcooked and it ends up in the trash. No more crockpots for me.
