Rival Crock-Pot SCVT650-PS Countdown Touchscreen


If what you need is a big, programmable, automatic keeping warm, harsh-free digital control and good-looking slow cooker like those big brands, this new Crock-Pot is here to consider –and won’t break the bank. Guaranteed as award-winning of America's Test Kitchen 2012.

Rival Crock-Pot SCVT650-PS Countdown Touchscreen

What we like: Finally, the new model of Crock-Pot is totally improved. Though this brand is the pioneer of this market, their products are quite similar. When this SCVT650-PS is launched for being totally programmable cooker, we bet this is one of the most eye-catching models in the market now.

To tell the truth this cooker is the perfect combination of all for the Crock-Pot products, for feature, performance, design and price. You will get fully programmable, Countdown (auto-keep warm) feature and modern digitally touch screen panel ---these can only be found in this model and Designer series. The control is simple to work: High, Low and Keep-Warm. Yet, the interesting programmable feature is ‘Time Up’ or ‘Time Down’ which allow setting shorter or longer time of need –from 30 to 20 hours. While warm setting can be started from 1 minute to 60 hours. The performance is quite satisfied ---evenly heat and real ‘Low’ cooking, no burning.

For 6.5-quart capacity, it’s quite bulky for normal-sized family, as well as, the oval shape makes the bigger spaces which fit the whole chicken. The removable stoneware insert and glass lid are allowed for going to the dishwasher. Shiny stainless-steel of exterior design make it more stunning. Another bonus, you’ll get a useful cookbook.

For expert’s review, the SCVT650-PS received good rating from American’s Test Kitchen for best in overall best value and performance. It also wins Editor's Choice awarded by REAL SIMPLE magazine for trusted brand, sleek design, easy-to-use, and automatic setting warm.

What we don’t like: While programmable control is easy to use, the LED pad make for looking at eye-level, which sometime makes difficult to read. Another complaint is it requires setting ‘Off’ before changing temperatures. Some reviewers found the lid doesn’t fit snugly when cooking.

The bottom line: Overall, this cooker is a true-match of person who is seeking for a simple (but nice) programmable and auto-warming feature, which ensuring that you’ll never overcook food. It’s quite easy, practical, sleek-looking and affordable slow cooker. What’s more, the cookbook is a plus.
