Programmable presets

With the Frigidaire Professional, you'll cook using one of four presets: Low, Medium, High, or Soup. Each preset comes with a default time that you can adjust. Once the timer reaches zero, the cooker will automatically switch into Warm mode. Buffet mode will also keep dishes warm and runs slightly hotter than Warm mode.

Chrome finish

The Frigidaire Professional sports an attractive stainless steel finish, with classy-looking chrome handles. The cooker gets very hot, though, and the handles offer little protection from scorching yourself.

Glass lid

The glass lid is another nice touch, allowing you to keep an eye on your food while it cooks without letting any heat out. We wish that Frigidaire would have included a place to insert a meat thermometer, though.

Worth the price?

At an MSRP of $99, the Frigidaire Professional will certainly cost you more than the average set-and-forget style slow cooker. For the extra money, you're getting the designer appearance, along with a few additional cooking presets.
