Cuisinart’s 3-in-1 slow cooker is a multi-purpose crockpot that can brown (saute), steam and slow cooks more dishes. It features one-touch setting that provides accurate cooking modes when the recipe calls for it. Inside the slow cooker is a removable 6-quart aluminum cooking pot, which has been coated with a non-stick Teflon coating. The slow cooker also comes with a tempered glass lid and cool touch handles to protect from burns during cooking.
The removable parts are also dishwasher friendly so clean up is pretty effortless. The extra-large backlit display makes cooking convenient at a glance. We also love the flexibility of this crockpot. You can use a combination of cooking modes whenever needed.
As for the negatives, most users are complaining about a major design flaw that leads to the heat building up into the digital display, causing the component to crack after several uses. We did not test this product enough to come across the same issue but this is one caveat that’s worth keeping in mind prior to purchasing this item. Our only gripe is that the Teflon coating is too thin so we won’t be surprised if the nonstick coating peels off after several uses. The majority of users are complaining about the same thing, saying that the Teflon coating tends to bubble and break after a couple of uses.
