One of the things that shocked me the most about immersion circulators was the variation in price. Some models, like the ones from PolyScience, are exceptionally expensive, often costing upwards of $500. Likewise, there are many models that are around $200, and even under $100! While $200 may be more reasonable, it is still a […]
From the outside, sous video often looks complicated. After all, it is a very different style of cooking than most of us are used to. However, it doesn’t have to be challenging. In fact, getting the right sous vide equipment can be relatively easy and doesn’t need to be extremely expensive either. This means that […]
Sous vide is a fantastic way to cook food. It can be very healthy, or decadently delicious, and you can end up with many meals that you simply couldn’t create any other way. Additionally, the cooking technique lets you create consistently good food, without having to worry about it burning or drying out. Cooking sous vide at home is a perfect way for a “terrible chef” to make consistently delicious food, or an already-good chef to step up their game and impress their friends, family, and self.
Slow cooker brands tend to produce a large range of different models, often only varying slightly from one another. This can make shopping incredibly confusing, especially as the differences between the individual models are not always obvious. For example, the number of models from Crock-Pot and Hamilton Beach alone is pretty overwhelming.
In contrast, Bella takes a simpler approach to slow cookers. The company doesn’t actually have all that many models and in most cases, the differences between them are pretty clear. However, you’ll find that there are a lot more options than normal in terms of visual appearance.
This means that many of the models come with multiple different choices for color. Those color differences don’t tend to affect performance. Nevertheless, they’re a great option if you’re trying to color coordinate your kitchen, or if you’re just looking for something a little unusual.
I’ve recently been fascinated with the various slow cooker models out there and the way that these vary When you first start shopping, the number of choices can often seem overwhelming, especially as the differences between them can be subtle and aren’t always easy to spot. So, how do you get the best deal and end up with a slow cooker that works well for your needs? To help with this process, we’ve been developing a range of lists, comparing the different models that are out there. In some cases, brands have a large range, including multiple different styles, sizes and ranges.
Perhaps the best, and the worst, thing about slow cookers is that there are simply so many different models out there. On one hand, this variety is great because it means that there is no shortage of options and, with enough shopping around, you can find something perfect for you.
But, on the other hand, the range of models can quickly get confusing and overwhelming. After all, many of the different slow cooker models seem pretty similar to one another. In some cases, models may even seem to be identical.
Crock-Pot is one of my favorite brands, partly because they simply have so many different models, including various sizes, styles and even colors. At the same time, the brand has a strong reputation and often produces models that are popular among customers.
In this case, we’re taking a look at the Cook and Carry range that Crock-Pot offers. The focus here is on slow cookers that are relatively portable and aren’t likely to spill if you took them in the car with you. The idea isn’t particularly unusual and some other brands have similar ranges, like Hamilton Beach’s Stay or Go slow cookers.
There are lots of options when it comes to slow cookers and no shortage of different brands and models. But, regardless of the brand you choose, you basically have the option of getting a manual or a programmable slow cooker. A manual one means that you will need to turn the slow cooker off or put it on keep warm mode yourself, once the required time has passed.
In contrast, a programmable slow cooker will allow you to choose how long you want the machine to run for. Then, once that time is up, the slow cooker switches over to keep warm mode automatically. This system is perfect for many situations, especially cases where you know the food will be done cooking before you get home.
Slow cookers offer a great way to save time with cooking while producing some truly amazing food. Yet, for the most part, they are also fairly simple tools, often just having settings for low and high, along with a keep warm option.
Despite this, there is no shortage of different slow cooker models out there and multiple different brands compete in the marketplace. In fact, even if you narrow your selection down to just one brand, you may still find yourself overwhelmed with choice. For that matter, some brands even have multiple ranges, where the various models seem fairly similar to each other.
When it comes to picking a product, working out which specific model to buy often ends up being really confusing. In many cases, you’re faced with multiple ranges, along with different models that can seem pretty similar to one another. Hamilton Beach is a good example of this, as the brand has no shortage of […]
