Consumer Reports: Does Crock-Pot still make the best slow cookers?
It weighs just 7 pounds, and the aluminum pot is round and has a ceramic nonstick coating—the only one in our ratings with that feature. Another feature that sets this model apart: You can use the pot on any type of range to sear, sauté, or brown food before slow cooking.

Instant Pot Duo vs Lux - Which one should you buy?
If you don’t consider the price difference, the Instant Pot Duo and the Instant Pot Lux look almost the same. Of course, there’s also the fact that the LUX is a 6-in-1 electric pressure cooker and the DUO is a 7-in-1 but does this really matter?
As it turns out, there are several other differences ...

12 Hours to Cook a Roast on High!
I bought this crock pot on Feb 16th, 2021 to replace my 12 year old crockpot. I used it the first time about a month or so after I purchased it. I used the same roast recipe that I’ve been using in my crock pot for 10+ years. I always cook it on high for 5-6 hours. After 6 hours the roast was hard a...

Instant Pot is not worth the hype;
When you consider the time it takes to prep, allow the pot come to a hot enough temp before it starts to cook and then the varying degrees of cooking times, this really doesn't work any better than saute pan or oven or crock pot.

Cleanup

Crock-Pot Cook & Carry Digital Slow Cooker review: Crock-Pot's affordable slow cooker keeps it simple

You can find cheaper models, some for as little as $20, but the Crock-Pot's ability to transport food securely and in a relatively tidy fashion makes it worth the extr...
