Features and Specifications

Following is a brief overview of Hamilton slow cooker.

  •  3 choices for cooking

    There are three types of functions that you have in this appliance; Probe, program and manual. In probe you insert the thermometer probe and adjust the amount of internal temperature that you require for that soft and tender meat roast.

    To help you out there is a manual given that has a cooking guide and a chart with the ideal temperature needed for each food item to cook be it chicken, meat or vegetables etc and what time they will take to complete cooking.The interesting thing about this cooker is that it automatically sets to warm mode when it reaches the maximum heat point.

    In program mode you yourself program the details to the cooker, adjust the heat settings whether high or low and time settings, and the cooker will do the rest of the job itself. When the timer is finished the cooker will automatically switch to warm mode.

    Manual Mode is for rather traditional cooking where you adjust the heat settings to either high or low and you keep track of the time as well. This makes the Cooker the perfect appliance needed for One Pot Cooking!

  • Travel Friendly

    If you are going to a party and you want to take your dish with you then without the hassle of transferring it to another utensil all you need to do is clip on the lids and this will ensure that nothing spills on your car seat or that beautiful dress of yours and you can easily take it to parties anywhere. With the firm grip handles it is easy to carry it around as well.

  • 6 Quart Cooking Pot

    The 6 Qt cooking pots fit perfectly a 6 lb chicken or a 4 lb meat. This means that if you want to serve a big family feast or host a large party and you are planning to make your favorite soup or roast in this slow Cooker then you will not need two or more of them since the size of this cooker is enough to hold a large quantity of food without spilling it and also cooking everything evenly.

  • Power Shortage Protection

    Many a time when the power gets low the slow cooker also turns off as they are mainly an electrical appliance and they need a specific set of voltage to function properly.
