Rated 3 out of 5 by beanolady poor quality
I returned the 1st cookbook because it was damaged during shipment and when I received the second one it was torn on the binded edge which is why I said it was a poor quality product. The paper covering was paper thin, the cookbook itself is fine.

To many premade ingredients, I was looking for cooking from scratch....
Rated 1 out of 5 by mewsette do not waste your money
Of 47 chicken recipes in this book, 37 are for boneless, skinless chicken thighs. Two are for pre-cooked chicken. Boneless, skinless thighs?! Most of these recipes are not whole meal recipes. Many include comments like "I serve this with mashed potatoes", or rice, or whatever. This, to me, is not a time saver, and not what I use a slow cooker for. I was looking for recipes that included meat, potatoes, and veggies all in one, which is what I would think a slow cooker is for. This book also includes many recipes that are just several ingredients to make your own sauce, and meat. I can do that with jarred sauce. This book is in no way a collection of whole meal recipes, and there is nothing here that you cannot find online with better ingredients and fewer steps. I was looking forward to whole chicken recipes, and pages that I could remove and use in the kitchen, but there is nothing here. If you like canned mushrooms, and using every pot in your kitchen when you get home from work, this book is for you!

If it didn't cost $8.95 to return, I'd do it! Dislike!

Great purchase. I utilize my crockpots often as I work shift work. Enjoyed all the various recipes in one volume. Everyone knows crockpots are good for roasts and stews. Did you know you can bake in your crockpot? Made the banana bread first day book arrived and it was delicious! I found this book well organized and liked having a picture of each finished recipe.
Rated 1 out of 5 by kayleen UGGGHHH Book came apart right out of the box
So sad the book inside came apart from the cover. The rivets broke. I took the cardboard out of the cenbter of the book and the inside came out. The recipes look awesome. Just is cheaply made. The recipes are heavy for the cover. Guess it is going back to qvc
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smurfry Great Cookbook
Really good cookbook. Nicely organized and there's a photo for almost every dish. I know takes up space where more recipes could be put, but I really like seeing the goal I'm working toward. There were lots of new and good recipes, but on the other hand, there were a lot of reruns from older cookbooks. It's not a huge deal or anything since they have so many fresh recipes, but this is reason I gave a "4."
