BELLA Dots CollectionOn October 27, 2017 by 101administrativeprofessionalsday
BELLA are a relatively young brand, designed specifically to help you take the load off and concentrate on the things that really matter. Their range of slow cookers is still pretty small, but we see that growing after looking at this BELLA slow cooker for the Dots collection.
We’re always open to new brands at crockpotsandpans.com, and one of the best that we have seen in recent years is BELLA. Looking to take advantage of a gap in the market, their products are directed at women who have busy lifestyles. We LOVE that. We all know that there are other things that take priority over your cooking (unfortunately)> Whether it’s work, your kids or your social life, cooking shouldn’t be the be all and end all. There’s more to life that just cooking.
As life continues to get in the way of everything, BELLA is there to take some of the load off.
- You can set the countdown timer to anywhere between 30 minutes and 20 hours.
- 3 temperature controls; high, medium and low.
- It’s completely dishwasher safe due to the glass lid and stoneware build.
Features of the product
The countdown programmable technology permits users to set the cook time anywhere from 30 minutes up to 20 hours. Users can also choose between High and Low temperature settings. Using this countdown settings is very easy as you simply need to set up cooking time and controller will begin to countdown the cook. Once when it is completed, the controller will shift to the Warm setting so your meal stays perfectly warm until you are ready to eat.
With these excellent features – hinged locking lids and carrying handles, there is no need for you to repack food in other containers. Locking lids keeps meal safe inside and your while you are traveling you don’t have to worry about making a mess or losing your food.
The teal coloring is one for the… acquired taste. Whilst we fully accept that some people won’t appreciate the vibrant color of this one, we love it. It brings a sense of color and brightness to your kitchen.
This slow cooker is surprisingly good. We’re seeing more and more quality products being produced outside of the big name brands. We’re sure that soon, BELLA will be one of those big brands if they carry on producing products like this one.
This slow cooker uses less energy than other ovens and slow cookers on the market, making it a great choice for those who are looking to conserve energy and help the environment.
It is nowhere near as programmable as some of its competitors
Unfortunately, this BELLA product isn’t as clever as some of the other Crock Pots and slow cookers that are available. It doesn’t have the shift-to-warm function that many of them do, which could be a deal breaker if you’re looking at investing in this crock pot. There is also no notification that the time cooking is finished, which isn’t helpful.
Isn’t that easy to wash
Whilst some of the other slow cookers are extremely easy to wipe down and wash after use, this one isn’t. It might take a little bit of extra grit to get rid of the dirt from this one.
If you’re looking for something beautiful and funky to fit in your kitchen, then this slow cooker from BELLA would be a fantastic option. Though if you have a large family, you might want to look for something larger.
