The All-Clad SD700450 is a programmable slow cooker that features a ceramic removable insert, tempered glass lid, and a 26-hour timer. This crockpot features a 6.5-quart capacity, stainless steel exterior and a programmable timer. The SD700450 also boasts of an easy to read digital display and large push button controls for easy and convenient cooking. The handles are integrated into the exterior of the pot, which may be a good thing and a bad thing depending on how often you use the handles. The removable components are also dishwasher safe so clean up is a breeze!
The SD700450 is one versatile cooking partner. You can slow cook, bake, roast, and steam with this crockpot, allowing you to make delicious appetizers, stews, soups, main courses, and so much more. The control panel comes with large buttons so it can be controlled easily, which is important when you’re in a rush. The oval shaped pot also means the SD700450 can accommodate larger pieces of meat, making it a great cooking pot to use on special occasions.
As for the downsides, the SD700450’s ceramic insert feels a little too flimsy and there’s no way to tell if it can survive daily abuse. Also, the exterior feels thinner than average slow cookers but this did not affect the usability or functionality of the product at all. Our only gripe is that the handles are integrated with the exterior so they can get hot during cooking.
