WESTINGHOUSE BLACK STAINLESS 3.5L SLOW COOKER
This beautiful new slow cooker is from Westinghouse Small Appliances
I say beautiful because it is … quite simply … stunning!
A shiny black stainless finish makes it the feature of any kitchen bench when in use.
So shiny in fact, photographing these cookers was quite the challenge 😉
I say these because this beauty comes in two sizes!
Her sister model is HERE … the 6.5L version … the same – just bigger!
You could even purchase the pair and have double the convenience of two meals/two courses at once 🙂
For this review though we are going to concentrate on the smallest of the two
The 3.5L capacity 🙂
This smaller than average size is great for smaller families, side dishes, desserts or smaller meals in general.
An emptier cooker cooks hotter, which isn’t always ideal, so matching the size of the slow cooker to your individual household needs is always the best way to slow cook.
Let’s look at some FEATURES first …
- 3.5L removable ceramic cooking pot to maintain and distribute heat evenly. This pot is for use in the slow cooker unit only, not for stove or oven use. Hand wash with non abrasive clothes/brushes and cleaning agents.
- Stainless steel outer unit with stunning black stainless finish
- Tempered glass lid to allow monitoring of cooking without need to always remove lid
- Oval shape cooking bowl
- Cool touch handles and knobs. Note: only handle actual cooking pot with oven mitts as it does get hot. And always carry a full pot of food by this inner cooking pot, not by the handles on the external slow cooker casing.
- 3 cooking settings HIGH, LOW, WARM
- HIGH – High heat for faster cooking times.
- LOW – Lower heat to allow longer cooking, ideal for best results
- WARM – Keep cooked food warm until serving. My personal recommendation is 2hrs max for food/taste quality
Manual dial, so you always know easily at a glance what setting you’ve chosen – no confusion sometimes found with digital control panels
This unit generally retails for around $49.95
