The slow cooker, also known as a crockpot, is a countertop electrical appliance used to simmer at a lower temperature than other cooking methods, such as baking, boiling, and frying.
Because of this, there is no need to constantly attending to this pot.
The crockpot is used for cooking a variety of dishes soups, stews, pot roast beverages, desserts, and dips.
Because cooking is more healthy, there is no need to use oils and fats; you can also use cheaper cuts of meat, and because it is simmered, it comes out tender.
There is no need to be constantly attending the pot so you can actually do other things in the meantime.
There are different features of different brands of the crockpot, and we will be looking at one of them.
There are certain features that I look for in a slow cooker
- Glass cover (to see in the pot without lifting the cover) tempered proof glass will not overheat.
- High handle to hold so fingers will not get burnt
- Ceramic or some such like material can be easily cleaned
- A Crockpot that can be used to braise meat so everything can be done in 1 pot
- Must be able to steam vegetables
- Have the feature to keep contents warm
Can store leftovers in the container
The Cuisinart MSC-600-3-in 1-cook central multi cooker slow cooker Brown/saute steamer has most of these features, and we will be looking at these.
It has a glass cover with an archangel which enables the lifting of the cover without getting burnt.
It also has a steaming rack with 2 heights, either very low or with a little height.
The cooking pot is removable; non-stick for easy cleaner dishwasher safe 6-quart capacity can hold enough for a large family.
There is also 2 sturdy side handles and stainless housing for easy cleaning
Extra-large blue backlit LCD with easy-to-read time and temperature settings
There are 3 fully programmable cooking functions Slow Cook on high, low, simmer or warm for up to 24 hours, includes automatic Keep Warm feature
There is a Brown/Saute for brazing, so there is no need for using more than one pot. You can set the temperature at 150deg.to 450
The Cuisinart MSC-600- Slower cooker can be used for almost anything from steaming vegetables, fish, or even custard.
This slow cooker is reasonably priced at Amazon for $129.00; there is also 3 years warranty.
Having a crockpot will aid in the lifestyle of eating healthy
And there will be time available to do other things. This cooker can be set on slow for up to 24 hrs and automatically goes to keep warm; the food will be kept warm even if we are not there.
