As the name implies, this slow cooker can be used at home on your countertop or easily transported to your potluck or picnic. The clamps hold the lid very tightly, and the rubber seal won’t let any liquid through… even with the craziest drivers.
To test this slow cooker, we made two recipes in it– a peanut butter chocolate cake and chicken breasts. Both recipes turned out great when cooking at the suggested times. The chicken cooked for 4 hours on High and was cooked thoroughly and tasted great and wasn’t dry at all. We covered the peanut butter chocolate cake with a towel to keep the moisture contained, cooked it for 3.5 hours on High and the result was a moist cake, baked to perfection.
As an added bonus, Hamilton Beach has added a handy spoon holder on top of the lid. A large spoon, that fits perfectly in the holder, comes with the slow cooker and does a great job in digging out that wonderful dessert or delicious supper.
This is definitely a straightforward and easy slow cooker to use. It doesn’t have many frills— just simple warm, low, and high settings, with a clamp lid. However, this slow cooker is perfect for any slow cooker user and does well in cooking a meal in a timely manner for an economical price.
