Enjoy healthy, home-cooked meals even with a busy schedule thanks to this easy-to-use oval-shaped slow cooker. With its generous 4.5-quart capacity, the unit works great for cooking up soups, casseroles, pot roasts, curries, and more. Simply add ingredients to the unit's stoneware crock, insert it in the cooker, and turn the temperature-control dial from off to keep warm, low, or high. The slow cooker's see-through glass lid, with a stainless-steel rim and stay-cool knob, traps in heat and moisture and allows for checking on food at a glance. For added versatility, the removable crock doubles as a serving dish and can go in the refrigerator to store leftovers or into the dishwasher, along with the lid, for quick cleanup. Integrated stay-cool handles provide safe transport. And for your convenience, a 3-cup sauce dipper is included, that will keep your sauces warm while serving, and that can also be used to melt chocolate effortlessly for pastry making or delicious chocolate fondues.
