Cooking offers something for everyone, at every skill level. From the time we make our first peanut butter and jelly sandwich, we are all on our way to being cooks of one ilk or another. Some of us end up enjoying the process, while some tend to view it as a necessary evil, and find ways to get out of the chore. It was probably a person of this particular mindset that invented the slow cooker, but it certainly turned out to be a brainstorm that benefits us all.

The Cuisinart 4-Quart Round Slow Cooker makes mealtime manageable for anyone and everyone. With a 24-hour programmable timer, preparation requires little more than putting the ingredients in the pot. The easy to use operation is initiated via a simple control panel. Users choose from a high, low, or simmer temperature setting, while the timer is intuitive and easy to set. A warm setting automatically kicks in when the meal is done. The round ceramic cooking pot doubles as a serving dish, making this slow cooker an easy choice for east to make meals.

For those that wish to dive in a little deeper, the slow cooker comes with an additional steaming rack. A recipe book is included which describes how to use the slow cooker and rack to prepare everything from a "baked" potato to cheesecakes and other sweet desserts. One pot, one meal, with dessert included--this slow cooker offers something for all cooks.
