Plug In Your Personal Cook

A slow cooker promises to be a little fantasy grandmother who sits in the kitchen all day cooking for you, but use the wrong cooker and that dream could fizzle. A cooker might run hotter than expected, drying out the food or turning it mushy, or slower than you want, so dinner isn’t ready when you are. A well-designed slow cooker excels in covered, moist-heat cooking, also known as braising. This technique is beneficial for meat—usually tough, cheap cuts that tenderize through long, gentle cooking. This lower-than-boiling temperature range is also good for developing deep, complex flavors in soups, stews, and sauces.

"Worth its weight in gold for the practical cook who wants to feel confident about putting good food on the table."

Ease of Use

We loved the lightweight, nonstick metal crock and stay-cool plastic handles that made this model so easy to maneuver and clean. The long, rectangular crock sits directly over a built-in hotplate, so this model tends to run a little hotter and cooks foods faster than traditional ceramic slow cookers. We suggest checking recipes early for doneness. It cooked evenly in every test and has built-in temperature sensors that prevent the contents from boiling. Its brown/sauté function eliminates the need for a separate skillet, and its steam function and included metal rack let you use it as a steamer. A few testers found setting this cooker a little confusing due to its slightly busy control panel. That said, it’s a solid performer that yielded excellent cooking results and is a great choice if you hate to lift heavy crocks or worry about breakage.

Cooking

TThis new "multicooker"—a slow cooker that can also brown/saute and steam food—produced perfect chicken, steaks, and ribs, with no scorching or hot spots. Its programmable timer can be set to cook for up to 24 hours and then automatically switches over to “keep warm." We liked its lightweight, easy-to-clean, unbreakable metal insert with extra-large, comfy handles, and its oval shape, clear lid, and intuitive controls. The brown/saute and steam functions both work as promised. A nice bonus is that the browning function, with adjustable temperature control from 150 F to 400 F, lets you sear food before slow-cooking, or reduce sauces afterward, without dirtying a second pan.
