About the Product
This Hamilton Beach slow cooker comes with an abundance of features; and meals cooked in it always come out warm and ready to serve.
It has three different modes for cooking. The first mode is the Probe mode, where you set the temperature you want your food cooked to and the cooker automatically brings the meat to that temperature, and when its reached that temperature it will switch to just keeping the food warm. The next mode is the Program mode where you set the time to cook your food and it will switch to being just keeping the food warm when that time comes. The last mode is the Manual mode, where you select the temperature the food cooks at, but not the time. It will continue cooking at the temperature you choose until you stop it and take the food out.
Another great feature of this product is it’s brief power outage protection. If your power goes out for a short amount of time, your food wont reset or stop cooking, when the power comes back on, the cooker will automatically resume cooking your food where it left off so you’ll have warm food waiting for you even if your power goes out.
This Hamilton Beach product has a large display screen. It is crisp and easy to read. It also comes with a built-in temperature probe so you know exactly how much your meat or other food has been cooked. The cooker is extremely easy to use. It also can last a long time and will be a staple in your kitchen for years to come. This is especially good because of how sharp looking this cooker is. It will look great on your counter permanently. It can be kept on the counter or easily stored and brought out for occasional use when needed.
Ease of Use- This cooker is so easy to use. All it takes is the push of a button and it will automatically cook your food perfectly and keep it warm. This allows you to put food in it in the morning and have it ready when you get home at the end of the day.
Temperature Probe- The built-in temperature probe is a great feature that not many slow cookers have. It tells you exactly the temperature your food is currently at.
Modes- This cooker comes with 3 different modes so you can cook your food how you want. With the Manual mode, you can set the temperature and it will keep on cooking until you stop it and take the food out. Another mode is the Probe mode in which you set the temperature for your food to be cooked to, and when the food reaches that temperature it will automatically switch to keeping the food warm. The last mode is the Program mode. In this mode, you set the time for your food to cook, and it will keep cooking until that time, and when the time is up it will automatically switch to just keeping your food warm.
Power Outage Protection- If the power goes out while your food is cooking, the cooker will remember where it left off and continue cooking when the power comes back on. This is great if a storm comes by while you’re at work, as even if all your clocks are blinking you’ll still have warm food waiting for you.
Possible Breakage- It is possible for the glass at the top to explode with extremely high temperatures and long usage. This is very unlikely but something to be wary of.
Shut Offs- This product has been known to very occasionally shut off during cooking and needs to be reset.
While this is a great product, it has some drawbacks. It has been reported in several instances, which after over about a year of constant use its possible for the glass to explode with extreme temperatures. This is an unlikely scenario for most users though. Slow cookers are versatile tools that can be used to cook many things, from meat to vegetables to desserts, so the heat you use will be varied.
Overall, this is a great product and surely one of the best slow cookers on today’s market. It has many features that even top-of-the-line cookers don’t have. It has three awesome modes for cooking foods to your preference. This cooker even has power outage protection so you always have a meal to come home too. While there is a small defect with the glass at high temperatures, this shouldn’t be anything to worry about. I would recommend this product as the best cooker to buy and you should have it in your kitchen.
