Slow cookers are considered large if they have capacities of at least 6.5-quarts. Only 20% of slow cookers on the market are this big. Recipes made for this slow cooker size will feed about 6 people, making this size a great choice for big families. Large slow cookers cost around $30 more than small ones, but still rate higher for overall value. They also receive better customer satisfaction scores. The #1 and #3 Best Slow Cookers on the market are both fairly large, while smaller models (under 3.5 quarts) don't even make the Top 10 of that list. The extra-large slow cookers are the only exception. These models, which can hold up to 8 or 9 quarts, have lower cumulative ratings. They particularly fall short in performance and ease of cleanup. Users chose Crock-Pot as the best brand of large slow cookers.
