Gather the family 'round the dinner table with help from this programmable 6-1/2-quart Crock-Pot slow cooker. An ideal size when cooking for up to eight or nine people, the unit's roomy interior offers enough space to accommodate a 7-pound roast or a large batch of butternut squash soup, vegetable curry, or other favorite recipe.
With slow cooking, food has the time it needs to reach robust levels of flavorful perfection. Offering a wonderful alternative to eating out, grabbing fast food, or heating up frozen dinners, the Crock-Pot slow cooker creates mouth-watering home-cooked creations that are healthier, lower in cost, and that produce delicious aromas that are sure to lure loved ones back to the table.
Time an issue? Even those with a busy schedule can make meal times magical. Prepare the slow cooker the night before--simply add ingredients to the stoneware insert and refrigerate overnight. Then, before work in the morning, set the stoneware insert into the heating base, secure the lid, turn it on, and set the programmable timer--the slow cooker takes care of the rest. After a slew of weekend errands or a long day at the office, dinner will be ready and waiting.
The slow cooker's touchscreen control panel makes programming practically foolproof. Fingertip touch controls include Low, High, and Warm cook settings, as well as Time Up or Time Down options for setting the cooking time from 30 minutes up to 20 hours. Its digitally displayed timer counts down the cooking time remaining, and the slow cooker automatically shifts over to a convenient keep-warm mode at the end of the cooking time, which allows food to remain at an ideal serving temperature without over-cooking. The digital timer also keeps track of time spent in keep-warm mode, counting up in one-minute increments for up to six hours before shutting off automatically. A Cooking indicator light and a Keep Warm indicator light offer at-a-glance convenience.
The oval-shaped slow cooker features a seamless, beautifully polished, stainless-steal exterior that adds a touch of modern elegance to any kitchen. It also comes with stylish metal side handles wrapped in silicone to help ensure a secure, comfortable grip when transporting from the kitchen to the table or buffet and back again.
Even more, the slow cooker's removable stoneware and glass lid move easily to the table for use as a lidded server, to the refrigerator for storing leftovers (no need to dirty a second container), and into the dishwasher for quick cleanup between uses. The stoneware can also go in an oven (but not the broiler) or microwave for added versatility.
Whether heading to a potluck, making a Sunday dinner, or hosting the holidays, the slow cooker is the ultimate kitchen companion. In addition to healthy, home-cooked meals, it can also be used to make and serve spiced coffee, mulled apple cider, and other festive beverages when entertaining friends and family. As an extra bonus, a cookbook comes included, filled with delicious menu ideas.
