Features of the product
It seems like the main feature of this Crock Pot is in its simplicity. Whilst it doesn’t have any fancy features or any of the programmable settings that we’ve become familiar with over recent year, it does everything that you could want it to do. It’s extremely simple to work and use, by being manual you literally just turn it on and watch it do its work!
4 quart for a small family
We usually recommend a 4 quart slow cooker for people looking for a small to mid size slow cooker. This is a great size for anyone who has a smaller family of 2-4 people. If you have a bigger family than this, then you might want to look at getting a bigger slow cooker.
There aren’t many other slow cookers that are the same size as this one, so
Whilst there is nothing too inspiring about cooking food in a slow cooker, it is sort of the unnoticed marvel within the kitchen. By this, we mean that it can cook you a delicious with little to no effort. This slow cooker has all the functions of one of the best slow cookers that we’ve seen.
Ideal for big families
Due to the extra quart, that makes this slow cooker ideal for larger families. If you’re often cooking large joints of meat or birds, then this would be a marvellous choice for you and your larger family.
It’s not the most attractive
Whilst function wise it is an amazing machine, the design is leaving quite a bit to be desired. There are other slow cookers that are far more attractive. If that doesn’t matter to you, then don’t worry about it.
The shell isn’t of the highest quality
As stated above, the functions of the machine are fantastic. But the shell is, honestly, a little lacklustre. It doesn’t make a difference to the cooking of the food, however.
If you are looking for a solid slow cooker that isn’t going to break after a few weeks use, then this would be a fantastic option for you. Whilst Gourmia may not hold the prestige of some other brands, they have a good warranty with this one as they are confident in their product. And so are we.
