This is a solid performing slow cooker  that will make meal times relaxing and enjoyable for the whole family!

Cuisinart is known for its fine kitchenware and the PSC-650 is what you’d expect from the brand. This is a programmable slow cooker with a 3 mode setting (simmer, low and high) for easy, quick cooking. It comes with a 24-hour programmable cooking time, an auto keep warm feature as well as a round ceramic cooking pot. As with all crock-pots, the heating pot on the PSC-650 is removable so it doubles as a serving dish and is dishwasher safe.

On the outside, the PSC-650 is striking with its brushed stainless steel housing, tempered glass lid with stainless steel rim and cool-touch duo-chrome handles. This unit comes complete with a cooking rack, a recipe book, and the manufacturer’s manual.

We love how solid the crock-pot is and beyond its obvious good looks, this slow cooker will make meal times relaxing and enjoyable for the whole family!  While our test unit ran smoothly throughout the trial period, some users are having problems with the overall quality of their PSC-650s. Some customers say the pot insert of their PSC-650s cracked after several uses while some users lamented over the poor quality of the components. Issues aside, this is a great slow cooker if you’re looking for a great mid-range crock-pot.
