Cuisinart PSC Slow Cooker71Ma4v1dRKL._SL1500_

                The majority of the best slow cookers come in an oval shape and can sometimes fit awkwardly on a kitchen counter.  Cuisinart has once again out done themselves by making a rectangular slow cooker that fits perfectly in the corner on any kitchen counter. The inside cooking portion of this appliance is in the shape of an oval. Most of the cooking pots in the other slow cookers are made of aluminum. This one on the other hand is made of a ceramic material. This means the slow cooker will stay warmer on the inside for a longer period of time than those that use aluminum pots. There are 3 different modes of cook time. You can program it to cook low, high and just simmer.

                Unlike the other slow cookers, this one comes with a cord storage area. You don’t have to worry about wrapping the cord up and tying it off with a rubber band. There is a glass lid that comes with a stainless steel rim. There are also chrome handles that stay cool so you can easily pick up the appliances at any time. Included with the slow cooker is a cooking rack, instruction book and even a recipe book to help give you some cooking ideas. There is even a 3 year limited warranty included.
