Equipment Review: Best Slow Cookers ("Crock Pots") & Our Testing Winner
The 3 Best Slow Cookers
What's easier than tossing a few ingredients into a pot and coming home to a warm meal? Exactly. We love Calphalon's 4-Quart Digital Slow Cooker (;) for pairs, De'Longhi's 5-Quart Compact Stainless Steel Slow Cooker (0; ) for small spaces, and Hamilton Beach Simplicity's 6-Quart Slow Cooker (; ) for travel.
Neither of these brands fit your needs? Keep these four qualities in mind when shopping for alternative appliances.
1. Digital, programmable timer. This serves as an in-your-face reminder that you turned it on and switches to warm when your meal is done.
2. Clear lid. It helps fight the urge to peek inside. Each cover lift sets cooking time back at least 20 minutes because of lost heat.
3. The right size. For best results, fill it at least halfway. So for a couple, buy a 3- to 4-quart model, but if you're feeding a family, then you're better off with a 5- to 6-quart size.
4. Ceramic crock. Some nonstick coatings can leach toxins if overheated. Opt for ceramic.
