If you decide on a nice chili recipe, start out by browning your meats, onions and garlic in the nonstick insert that can be placed directly on the stove top (it can be used on either electric or gas ovens) to brown ingredients before simply transferring it to the base for the final slow cooking process with all of the sauces. When you are done cooking your recipe over several hours, you can even serve up dinner directly from this beautiful stainless steel base, which often makes for a conversation piece.
This dishwasher-safe slow cooker is ideal for any working person who does not have much time to spend in the kitchen creating inventive dishes. With the simple push of a button, you can set the digital timer and return after several hours to a deliciously prepared flavorful dish. The unit has high, low and high/low settings and even automatically switches to the Keep Warm setting when time elapses. It really doesn’t get much better than this.
