Westinghouse SEARING 6.5L

Westinghouse Searing 6.5L Slow Cooker

This fantastic searing slow cooker is from Westinghouse Small Appliances
The number one feature of this cooker has to be it’s searing ability.
This feature means you can lift the cooking pot out of your slow cooker, put it on your stove to brown/sear/seal the food you want to slow cook, right in the same cooking pot so no flavour is lost or extra mess created, then simply return it to you slow cooker and continue slow cooking as normal.
It also has all the other features you want in a slow cooker but in a whopping 6.5L capacity, larger than your average slow cooker!
Great for large families, entertaining, or anyone wanting to slow cook without size limitations!
It would also make a fabulous pigeon pair to own alongside the Westinghouse Searing 3.5L Slow Cooker!
And I love the unique look of this unit – a real scene stealer in your kitchen 🙂

 

Features: 

  • A large oval shaped 6.5L removable non stick cooking pot to easily accommodate even your largest slow cooking creations
  • Tempered glass lid, great for looking during cooking without lifting the lid
  • Cool touch handles and knobs for safety
  • 3 setting manual control panel with HIGH, LOW and WARM
  • Note:  Not suitable for induction stove tops

 

 

Testing: 

I tested this slow cooker with various meals and sizes.
I was happy to note that it cooked to standard cooking times.  As always an emptier cooker will cook a little hotter than a full one so keep that in mind.

I don’t always pre brown or sear but when I do I LOVE to be able to do it in the same pot as I’m cooking in.  All those flavours stay in the cooking and lets face it, who doesn’t love less dishes.
What I also find great about a searing slow cooker is that recipes that need thickening at the end can easily be moved to the stove top in their searing bowl to thicken prior to serving.
I even find it handy if I am ever short of time and just need to finish off a dish that tiny bit faster.  I can give it a blast on the stove top to finish it in the same bowl too.
Just so versatile!

I love the manual dial that you can see at a glance what setting you are using.

Keep warm is a great option to help busy households time their dinner for just when they want and need it 🙂  My personal preference is a maximum of 2hrs on keep warm for recipe quality and food safety.

It was a breeze to wash and wiped out easily with soapy water and a cloth.
Remember to allow the lid and non stick pot to cool thoroughly before washing to avoid risk of any warping.

    Enjoy the smell of walking in and something is Yummy !!

  40. Kristina O'Brien says:

    I would really appreciate the chance to win one of these 6.5L capacity slow cookers. I have a large family and it would help with that, but the most important ways it would really help me is when I am in a major depression and I can barely move or breathe, having the ability to get dinner ready when I can “move” will be a great help. I also like to take dinner to my elderly parents who live close by, and this will certainly be of benefit for my ability to help them more often. Good luck everyone and I hope who ever wins smiles.

  56. Shirley Robert says:

I love the recipes in your Slow Cooker Central books … heaps that I want to try. My fingers are crossed. Thank you for this opportunity.

  65. Jillian Scholz says:

    Would love to win the 6.5l slow cooker as I’m currently working with a family of 5 love to cook never really cooked a cake in the one I have as I’m normally cooking tea in it. I also like to bulk cook on weekends so this would be really helpful for a busy crazy family.
    Thank you

  66. Annie – Sydney.
    Having the ability to sear and slow cook in the same container would save me the hassle of washing too many dishes before running out the door to drop off the child and head to work. A 6.5L would feed my family and whichever of our friends pops over on any given night. Usually no chance of leftovers cause there’s always someone over to share my markdown meats cooked while I work but until now only had a small cooker so extra needed to be oven cooked on arrival home………. thank you for the opportunity.

  67. Marion Anstis says:

    Hi Paulene, I’m Marion from Victoria and would love to win the 6.5ltr slow cooker. My family and I love casseroles and soups plus and am sure they will love as I know I will trying lots more with this. Thankyou xxx
