Are crockpots a crock?

I have never understood the charm of crockpot cooking. I've never used one and had the dish turn out to be even satisfactory. I have tried countless times and countless recipes but always end up disappointed by the flavor. I feel crockpots cook the life out of whatever I put in them. Does anyone else feel this way?
