Right now, my 3. 5-quart slow cooker is making dinner as I work. I mentioned in last week's roundup of 10 back-to-school slow cooker recipes that on the first chilly night, I'd be making Slow Cooker Cheesy Tortellini. I woke up chilly this morning, so out came my Rival Crock-Pot. Rival Crock-Pots are the brand of slow cookers that most people know. The term Crock-Pot is so synonymous with slow cooker that many people use it as a generic term. However, there are many brands of this handy kitchen appliance and there are also various types. When you're shopping for a slow cooker, it's good to know how you'll use the appliance. Good features to have on any model. Here are a few features that are good to have in any slow cooker, based on my experience. A removable crock insert. I don't know if there are any brands that make a slow cooker with a stone crock insert that does not lift out anymore, but some manufacturers made them that way in the past. My very first slow cooker (a free gift for opening a bank account) had a permanent insert. When the crock doesn't come out of the base, the appliance is more difficult to wash. If you're looking for a secondhand slow cooker at a yard sale or thrift store, pass up the ones with built-in crocks. A glass lid. This is simply aesthetics, but I've had both of my slow cookers for about the same amount of time. One has a glass lid and one has a plastic lid. The glass lid still looks nice. the plastic lid is dingy and scratched. A warm setting that you can set manually. Very basic slow cookers will have two temperature settings, high and low. One step up from very basic will give you third temperature option: warm. Make sure that you can manually turn the slow cooker to warm. My 6-quart slow cooker has electronic programming. I can program it for specific cooking times on high or low and when those cooking times are done, it automatically goes to warm. However, if I've determined that something is finished cooking before the programmed time, I don't have the ability to manually turn it to warm. It's the one thing about that particular slow cooker that makes me consider replacing it. What size do you need. Slow cookers come in a variety of sizes, from 1. 5 quarts to more than 8 quarts. I haven't tested the models in the photos, but they all have good user. Source: www.mnn.com
Cooking often is one of two things to people: they can love to cook or they can hate to cook. There's a good chance that those ambivalent in-between are still concerned with the general goings-on that occur in the kitchen. we all gotta eat. But it is not only the process of cooking that goes into the creation of a meal, but also cleaning up. And that's the part most would truly like to avoid. Cooking involves pots, pans and any number of cooking utensils and accessories. Keeping that number to a minimum keeps the mess to a minimum as well. Danish company Eva Solo has a line of cookware designed to streamline the cooking and prepping process. Available in a variety of sizes, Eva Solo Gravity Cookware ($119-$179) has a well-designed lid that does more than just cover the pot. It starts with a peek through the top. The stainless-steel cookware is topped with a silicone lid that has a glass window. The silicone construction enables the lid to serve other purposes. During the cooking, the contents of the cooking vessel are easy to get to as an inner lip on the lid is designed to allow the lid to stand on the edge of the pot, draining water back into the cooking (and not on the kitchen countertop). Perhaps best of all, that inner lip has a series of holes, meaning that it can not only be used as a steam vent, but as a colander as well -- so there will be one less dish to do.
