Westinghouse 3.5L Slow Cooker

I’m a huge fan of owning slow cookers in various sizes.
Why have just one and be restricted to one recipe per day when you can have several and create the whole meal 🙂
This 3.5L slow cooker from Westinghouse Small Appliances is PERFECT for any collection!
Not only is it great for smaller sized recipes or smaller families, but it’s also a great size for side dishes and desserts!
Let look at it’s features in closer detail….

 

 

 

 

Features:

  • 3.5L removable ceramic cooking pot, oval shaped to accomodate larger cuts of meat
  • Tempered glass lid so you can watch what’s cooking without lifting the lid and losing heat
  • Cool touch handles and knob to keep hands safe
  • 3 Temperature settings.  Not all slow cookers have a keep warm function so it’s a real asset that this cooker has LOW, HIGH and KEEP WARM
  • The cooking pot is not oven or stove safe, only use in your slow cooker

 

Testing:

I tested this slow cooker across various recipes types and was completely satisfied with it’s performance.

Like many slow cookers around the 3L range, I found it to cook a little slower than larger cookers, but this is often an advantage in my opinion.  It’s great for those who need long cooking recipes without the risk of them burning or overcooking (eg during long work days).  It also gives you the option to stagger when you start your recipe to suit your schedule during the day so you can prepare and begin it earlier when you may have a a quiet moment, knowing it will happily cook longer.  With any slow cooker you soon get to know the speed/heat of yours and this is no exception 🙂

It cooked silversides and vegetable dishes and bolognaises all very well and consistently to my expectation.

I found it a breeze to clean.  A mild detergent and a non abrasive cloth were all I needed to easily wipe out baked on food.

It’s smaller size is also an asset for those who have trouble holding and using larger, heavier cookers.  Perfect for younger children learning to cook and those with arthritic type conditions also.

I like the clear, easy to read dial for settings that are simple to see at a glance what cooking function is in progress and leaves nothing up for misinterpretation.

I find keep warm a really valuable asset.  Personally I do recommend not more than 2hrs at a keep warm setting for maximum food quality and safety.

Price:
This unit generally retails for around $45
