It goes without saying that the best kitchen appliances are the ones that can do a little bit of everything. When faced with a cornucopia of ingredients and indecision about what to do with them all, the decision is often made based upon convenience. However, convenience doesn't have to mean tossing everything in the microwave and hoping for the best. (Although it's hard to understate the convenience of a microwave.) With the right multitasking appliances on hand, convenience and versatility can be always at the ready.

The Sunpentown Shabu Shabu 3-quart Grill and Multi-Cooker is a convenient countertop appliance that offers several methods for cooking. It measures 12 inches by 12 inches with a height of 9 inches; it has a small footprint, yet is capable of grilling, steaming, simmering, or it can be used as a hot pot. Ready to go right out of the box, the appliance comes with all the necessary accessories, including a stainless steel pot, a nonstick griddle, a glass lid, a steam rack, a mesh strainer, and a strainer support.

It features a distinctive style that is as useful as it is graceful; the multicooker looks right at home on the countertop. Easy to operate and to use with an adjustable temperature control, the 1,000-watt appliance supplies the versatility and the convenience so appreciated in the kitchen--without the need to rely solely on the microwave.
