The Hamilton Beach Company is a long respected name in the small appliances. It is not a beautiful beach somewhere but the combination of the last names of the two original owners of the company. It is the brain child of Chester Beach and L.H. Hamilton and was started in 1910. One was a businessman and one was a mechanical inventor. Since then it has grown into a large well known company that produces cutting edge appliances. They now sell over 35 million appliances each year to customers in the United States. All Hamilton Beach products are built with durability and attention to detail.
Hamilton Beach has carried this innovation into their line of slow cookers. They carry everything from the basic manual cooker to the top of the line cooker with all the latest bells and whistles. There most popular line of crock pot is the “Set-n-Forget”. These are programmable slow cookers at a very reasonable price.
Some of them have three different cooking options. They can be used as a manual slow cooker, one that is programmed, or one that has a cooking probe to determine if the meal is ready. The probe reads the internal temperature of the food. When it is done it will automatically switch over to the warming setting so the food isn’t over cooked. The probe is inserted into a special hole in the lid and remains in place during the cooking. There is no need to keep lifting the lid and inserting the probe to check on the progress of your food. Lifting the lid only increases the cooking time.
These unique slow cookers come in all sizes from 4 quarts to the large 8 quart size. They are dishwasher safe and have stainless outer casings. They have large LED digital control panels for easy reading and setting control.
There is another really cool slow cooker that is called the 3-in-1 slow cooker. There is a cooking base and then you choose what size crock you want to use. You have the option of choosing from a 2, 4, or 6 quart pot to set inside the base unit. It is a stainless steel base with black crockery. The crockery and lid are both dishwasher safe. This might be the one you want for cooking those healthy varieties of one pot meals.
Another choice is the special slow cookers that are made for easily moving to another spot without risking messy spills. The lids lock tight and the cords are discreetly taken care of. These crock pots have received outstanding reviews for not only producing delicious one pot dinners but also for their construction and ability to be easily transported in the car.
There is another premium slow cooker to choose from that will brown the meat before cooking. There is no need for that extra searing in another pan. This oval shaped slow cooker is perfect for cooking a whole chicken. Wow! What an easy way to roast a chicken in the summer and not heat up your whole kitchen.
