Crock-Pot SCV700SS 7-Quart Slow Cooker Review

Crock-Pot SCV700SS 7-Quart Slow Cooker

The Crock-Pot SCV700SS 7-Quart Slow Cooker is a simple, manual slow cooker. Set it on “high” for a quick meal or side dish. Or, set it on “low” to cook while you’re away from the kitchen. Your meal will be ready for you and your family or guests when you return. Use the “warm” setting to keep cooked food hot until it’s time for dinner.

Crock-Pot SCV700SS 7-Quart Slow Cooker

                   


Product Overview

The Crock-Pot SCV700SS 7-Quart Slow Cooker is very simple in every way. It is built with only a few components. The heating element, base, and attractive, stainless steel exterior comes with two, sturdy, convenient, carrying handles. A simple 4-way switch controls temperature settings – Off/Low/High/Warm.  Lastly, a dishwasher-safe stoneware removable insert with glass lid.

The oval shape and 7-Quart capacity allow you to cook a 7 lb. roast or whole chicken, good for up to 9 people, with lots of room for the vegetables and gravy. Check out some great Slow Cooker Recipes under the Recipes Tab on my Home page.

It comes with a glass lid so you can peek at how the meal is coming without losing valuable heat. The removable stoneware insert is oven-safe (not under the broiler) and easily washed along with the lid in the dishwasher so it is easy to clean.

Cook quickly on “high” or slowly on the “low” setting. Keep food hot on “warm” until everyone is ready to eat or for on-demand nibbling until the end of the party.


Pros:

  • Inexpensive
  • Reliable
  • Large size/Oval Shape
  • Simple to operate
  • Easy to clean

Cons:

  • Not programmable
  • No automatic “keep warm”
  • Large size takes up counter space

Average 4.3 out of 5 stars

I had this version in a 4.5 quart and it just never seemed big enough. I am absolutely in love with this larger size because I no longer have to worry if I’ll have enough room for all ingredients.

We have a family of 8. I have used a LOT of crockpots over the years. For the price, this one is the best hands down. No bells and whistles just a solid well-made pot. It does cook on the hot side, but I like that.

A great no-frills slow cooker that I’ve used for a year and a half now. Maybe I’m old school, but I prefer the simple style without all the additional settings or timers.

Does everything as advertised; my only complaint is that the stainless steel type finish does not wipe clean easily, and even scrubbing sometimes doesn’t do the trick. I think wiping it down regularly has dulled the finish also…it never gets as clean and unblemished/shiny as it did when it was new. Seems quite a bit more gray and dingy than silver and shiny…obviously it’s a cheap imitation finish of some sort. The black lettering also smears and rubs off as well, especially if the unit is still at all warm to the touch. Mind you, I’m just using a regular non-scrub sponge when this happens. I store mine in a cabinet when not in use, but if I had to leave it out on the counter it would be a bigger issue and would drive me crazy as an eyesore.

Still, it’s functional as advertised, just might not hold up cosmetically with regular or long-term use if that’s important to you.

The outside of this crock pot gets way too hot!! We have only used this on low and can’t imagine how hot it would get on high! Just trying to slide the pot to the back of the counter and burned my hand. In my opinion the outside should not get nearly that hot!!!


 

My Final Opinion

If you like simplicity, convenience, size, and ease-of-use, in a large but affordable slow cooker, I give the Crock-Pot SCV700SS 7-Quart Slow Cooker a score of 90 out of 100 and a recommended Buy.
