Slow Cook

One of Crock-Pot features is the ability to slow cook meals, for example beef stew, texas pulled pork, taco soup, ribs, lasagne, among many other delicious dishes. You can change the slow cooking time according to the recipe and your personal preferance, from 30 minutes to 12 hours you can set the time, choose high, low or warm cook settings, and go focus on other activities while the multi-cooker takes care of everything.

TechChef advises you to keep an eye on Crock-Pot when slow cooking, some customers have reported a continuous high temperature when using this feature.

 Steam

Another useful function of Crock-Pot is the ability to steam thanks to its large capacity steaming rack. Easily place the rack into the cooking bowl and start steaming your favorite meals with less fat and more nutrition. Steam meals such as spring rolls, asparagus with potato and leek sauce, prawns in garlic sauce, vegetables, among many others.

 Roast

One of our personal favorite features on this affordable multi-cooker is the roasting function. Similar to a traditional oven the Crock-Pot Multi-Cooker roast temperature ranges from 150ºF to 450ºF (65.5ºC to 232ºC). Therefore, able to produce tender, juicy meat entrees and delicious sides such as classic beef, balsamic beef, Mississippi beef, goose, lamp, among other delicious meals.

 Brown/Sauté

An important function in almost any multistep cooking, it’s a common step when first preparing a meal like searing roasts to lock in juices or browning meats for chili and stew. It also allows you to cook amazing sautéed meals with adjustable high and low temperature settings.

Bake

Crock-Pot 6 is wonderful for baking delicious desserts. You can choose to bake it directly in the cook bowl or use a rack insert to set the dessert on different temperature and time ranges ideal for the specific dish you are doing. Delight your family with tasty disserts such as raspberry lemon poppy seed cake, cinnamon roll muffins, chocolate chip cookies, among many others.

  • Doesn’t support eletric mixer, therefore you have to mix your dough on the side by hand or using an external eletric mixer.

Control Panel

A very simple and intuitive one touch control panel programs cook mode, cook time and temperature with digital readout. Switch from one function to another with no hassle, adjust settings and power on and off.

 

Material

This multi-cooker is made of stainless steel, a type of material that is notorious for its corrosion resistance and being able to withstand very high temperatures. It’s the ideal material to be used in this type of kitchen appliance. The multi-cooker’s lid is made of glass allowing you to keep an eye on your food while its cooking. A negative aspect of Crock-Pots built is the small gap around the panel’s buttons, as it may lead to an accumulation of grime over time. However, nothing that a regular cleaning maintenance doesn’t prevent.

Ease of Use

Crock-Pot is aimed at both beginners and experts, pratically anyone can use this multi-cooker, its learning curve is very low. The control panel is very simple and intuitive to use. You can find everything you need on the manual or feel free to ask us in the comment section below. The cleaning part is also easy, in fact, considering other products within its price range this one has been one of the easiest to use and clean.

Price

We believe this product should be $10 to $15 cheaper, mainly due to the lack of efficiency of the slow cook feature. However, if we balance that aspect with the many positive factors of the product we can say, without a doubt, it’s a great purchase, especially for a big family buying their first multi-cooker.

What do verified customers have to say?

“Received the 5-in-1 and couldn’t wait to use it. I was not disappointed. I have not used my oven once since receiving it. I have slow cooked, browned, baked and steamed. It has certainly not disappointed. I had my old crock pot for over 20 years and I hope to get 20 more out of the 5 in 1. Highly recommend.”
