The 10 Best Slow Cookers of 2018

The 10 Best Slow Cookers of 2018

Slow cookers are some of the most useful, forgiving, and convenient cooking devices. They allow you to cook a wide variety of dishes that turn out great on your schedule. Before moving on to the important specifications of the 10 best slow cookers of 2018, we will explain some key features of slow cookers.

Capacity - the volume of liquid and/or food that the slow cooker will accept

Shape - the basic shapes are oval, round, and square/rectangular; oval slow cookers are typically sized to accept longer items than the other shapes

Pot/Insert Material - slow cooker pots or inserts are usually either ceramic, stainless steel, or a nonstick-coated metal such as aluminum or steel

Heat Settings - it is common to find a slow cooker with only "high," "low," and "warm" heat settings; others that utilize digital controls may allow you to set a specific temperature in one or more modes

Timer - the time(s) that the slow cooker can be set to run before automatically switching to lower heat setting or turning off

Temperature Probe - allows you to monitor the temperature of the contents of the slow cooker; some slow cookers allow you to specify a temperature that when measured by the temperature probe will cause the slow cooker to automatically switch to a lower heat setting or turn off

Latching Lid - a latching lid will keep the contents of the slow cooker from spilling; this can be used to more conveniently transport the contents

Weight - the weight of the slow cooker itself (not the shipping weight including the box and packaging material as some sites use)
