Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Makes great quality food
This unit keeps a constant temperature and retains moisture very well, only 8% of water evaporates. Thanks to that, the food does not burn nor is it under or overcooked.
Pro Programmable cooking timer for more convenient cooking times
With this slow cooker, you can set your meal to cook for up to 24 hours with 30-minute increments.
Pro Keeps food warm for up to 4 hours
After your dish is cooked, it can automatically be kept warm for up to 4 hours.
Pro Easy to see when your food will be finished cooking
A digital display shows how much time is left until your food will be finished cooking.
Pro Easy to clean
You can easily take out the ceramic vessel and clean it in the sink or put it in a dishwasher.
Pro Glass lid allows you to see the progress of your dish
With the glass lid, there is no need to take it off when you want to check your food. Taking off the lid would cause it to let out some heat and that would extend the cooking time.
Con Lacks sear feature
With this slow cooker, it is hard to brown meats or make sautéed vegetables.
Con This model has had production issues
There have been production issues resulting in the lid not fitting well on the ceramic vessel. Because of that, it doesn't hold the temperature as well as it should. So there's a chance you will receive a faulty product and might have to return it.
