GIVEAWAY: Hamilton Beach Programmable Slow Cooker


Fall is beginning and it’s time to think about warm, hearty soups and stews! And how nice is it to come home from a long day to a hot bowl of homemade soup? You can do that with this programmable slow cooker!

You voted for it on Facebook, and here it is! To celebrate reaching 15,000 likes on Facebook, this month’s giveaway is this very useful 6-quart Hamilton Beach programmable slow cooker!

This slow cooker is the one I use, and I LOVE IT!

It includes:

  • An LED digital control panel with 3 automatic-cooking options–program, manual, or probe; automatic keep-warm
  • Power-interrupt protection; clip-on spoon; clip-tight gasket lid; side handles for safe transport
  • Dishwasher-safe stoneware and tempered-glass lid
  • User manual with recipes included

Unlike most crockpots, the removable stoneware crock and the lid on this unit are dishwasher safe. (Hallelujah!)

To clean the base, unplug and let cool, and then wipe it down with a damp cloth.

I really love that you can use this crockpot even if you are away all day at work or school. Just use the PROGRAM mode to input the amount of time your food needs to cook and select the HIGH or LOW heat setting. As food cooks, the illuminated display on the control panel will alternate between the heat setting and the remaining time. When the cooking cycle is complete, the cooker will automatically shift to WARM setting, so you come home to a hot cooked meal!

Another cool feature of this crockpot is the temperature probe. For many foods, especially large cuts of meat, internal temperature is the best test for doneness. With this unit, all you have to do is select the desired internal food temperature, insert the probe into the food, and the slow cooker will automatically shift to WARM once the temperature is reached.

How easy is that!
