Crock-Pot 3735-WN Review
This basic slow cooker comes with just enough features to get the job done, according to Crock-Pot 3735-WN reviews. Many consumers mention that the 3.5-quart capacity is exactly what they were looking for given the size of their households. A Crock-Pot 3735-WN review posted at Epinions, for example, relates that this comparatively small slow cooker makes enough stew or chili to feed four without leftovers; other Crock-Pot 3735-WN reviews say it's the perfect size for two-person households. Regardless, users report successfully preparing soups and stews (Tip: add ingredients like noodles and asparagus later in the cooking process), pulled pork and roast chicken, beans and steel-cut oatmeal. And yet, Crock-Pot 3735-WN reviews at Amazon caution that this cooker runs hot. Users say that recipe recommendations for time and heat may need to be ratcheted downward; one Crock-Pot 3735-WN review reports that soups are done in four hours and another suggests sticking around to make sure nothing burns.
The biggest gripe posted in Crock-Pot 3735-WN reviews concerns the plastic handles and knob. Consumers who commented on both sites say the round lid handle, which is attached with a screw, tends to come loose (regardless how often you tighten it) and is a repository for dishwater. The handles on the crock itself seem weak to some users, several of whom report they have cracked or come perilously close to falling off. Some Crock-Pot 3735-WN reviews also describe the outer metal shell as thin and too easily dented and a few comments posted several years ago grumble about ill-fitting lids, which let steam escape and the contents to bubble out onto the counter.
The Crock-Pot 3735-WN is a stripped-down 3.5-quart slow cooker with hi, low, and off settings; the absence of a keep warm setting or indicator light, increasingly common on budget slow cookers, doesn't seem to deter users who otherwise like this model. The stoneware oval crock is removable and stick-resistant, and Crock-Pot 3735-WN reviews say it cleans up easily - soap and warm water do the trick for any bits that are stuck to the sides. The Crock-Pot 3735-WN also features the usual glass lid.
The Crock-Pot 3735-WN is as basic as it gets for a slow cooker, but its small size seems to be a large draw for slow cooker users.
