The best...slow cookers

All-Clad Slow Cooker, Hamilton Beach Set ’N Forget, and more

All-Clad Slow Cooker
This high-priced but handsome stainless-steel cooker scored highest in testing by Consumer Reports, thanks to its user-friendly features, including a programmable, 26-hour timer and a 6.5-quart ceramic insert.

Hamilton Beach Set ’N Forget
Sold at a fraction of the price of the All-Clad, this 6-quart cooker performs almost equally well. It too has a programmable timer, plus a probe thermometer and a lid that can be locked for transporting food.

Kitchenaid 6-Quart Slow Cooker
“The key feature” here is the hinged lid, which comes in handy when serving. The pot’s four temperature settings include a “keep warm” option, and the “weighty” ceramic liner holds heat well.

Cuisinart 4-Quart Multicooker
Our panel’s favorite 4-quart cooker can brown meat and steam rice as well as slow-cook. We especially liked its “lightweight, easy-to-clean, unbreakable metal insert” and “intuitive controls.”

Crock-Pot Countdown Touch Screen Cooker
The phrases “crock pot” and “slow cooker” remain synonymous for a reason. The first manufacturer of slow cookers still makes quality pots like this mid-priced option, which has all the essential features.
