This unit is one of the largest made. It will cook plenty of ribs, more than 7 country ribs. A smart purchase for the number of people in your family:)

answer 4
We are using the pot for a family of 5 (sometimes 6) and the capacity is just fine. I can't specifically answer the questions about the ribs but I imagine you could if you cut them up to fit the pot. You can get a few pots that are bigger than 6 quarts but I would say that this size is the most versatile for most families.

Yes. The lid lock is one of the best features of this pot. It does have a small vent hole in the lid but i travel with it full of chili and never had an issue. The lid also has a rubber gasket which helps keep liquid from sliding under the edge.

Yes you can lock the lid and it has a good seal. To lock just slide the plastic lock out on both sides. It only causion it not to lock it while cooking.

answer 3
Not at all. I have used clow cookers for over twenty years and this one is by far the best I have owned. It cooks nice and evenly. I love the fact that after I set it to cook for a specific time, it automatically shifts to the warm setting. This way if I am out of the house, I know the food will remain warm without overcooking.

I would never do that! This unit is made for the metal crock, not clay crocks. You could end up with a cracked crock and a real mess, not to mention possible fire hazard.

A stoneware insert would not be recommended as it does not transmit heat in the same way as does the non-stick insert that came with the unit. GE's customer assistance hot-line (1-877-207-0923) would help you reach someone with a definitive answer or how to order a replacement non-stick insert.

Can I use the insert on a cooktop?
