I got this when I was married in 1979. I had no idea how to cook anything besides toast and boiled eggs, and there were no microwave ovens or good frozen meals yet. I was a student still, and way too broke to eat restaurant food all the time. I didn't have a car to drive through anywhere. And my betrothed didn't know how to cook either.

I was in a state of food emergency.

This nifty little volume has stood me in good stead. I have received, and broken, at least half a dozen crock pots since then,

I stole this book from my Mom sometime I the last few years and have made a few recipes with it. I would give the book four stars but since it's really old, the style of cooking is sort of outdated for the way I cook. The split pea soup is definitely 5 star though!

Simple classic and tasty. So far all the recipes I've made have turned out very good.

We have been eating several meals over and over out of this book! Wonderful recipes and they don't taste like mush like some crockpot cookbooks. VERY budget-friendly. We're very happy with it! No strange ingredients, just basic, good food.

The tips and techniques introducing the chapters are interesting and helpful, but I think I need a book aimed specifically at my smaller cooker and vegetarian recipes.

My go to cookbook. Sure the recipes are often rather basic, but they're a great starting point for your own creativity, just what your main cookbook should be.

A good source for pot roast and beef stew recipes, though I don't use my crock pot much these days now that I'm retired.

Probably would have rated it higher, but I rarely use my crockpot.
