As of writing this the Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker is the most popular slow cooker on amazon for a reason. With the probe you can even do some Sous Vide cooking. This morning I “hard boiled” eggs in a bath of water for a hour under 145 degrees and got custard like smooth eggs that slide out of the shell after you crack them and have many of their more delicate proteins preserved giving it flavors I didn’t think a egg had. It was so rich in flavor adding seasoning to it was like pouring ketchup on a steak.
This afternoon I cooked a stew and the heat sensor let me know exactly when It was ready, and if say I didn’t arrive home on time it would have kept itself warm until I did. This dish was so easy to make and tasted delicious. I think anyone who likes eating home cooked meals, whether you can cook or not will enjoy this lovely device. All you need to do is leave the ingredients in the pot and wait, it does the rest.
I mixed cuts of beef with
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried crushed rosemary
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Then added onions and bacon fat on top!
