Hamilton Beach Stay or Go Slow Cooker ReviewOn October 27, 2017 by 101administrativeprofessionalsday
There aren’t many other brands as popular as Hamilton Beach in the cookware field, and there’s good reason for this. They’ve established themselves as reliable, with high quality products. What do we make of the Stay or Go?
Hamilton Beach are known for their reliability. The Stay and Go looks like a fantastic example of a smaller slow cooker that you can’t really go wrong with. Whilst the majority of slow cookers may be an extra few quarts in size, this 4 quart is actually pretty ideal if you’re cooking for 2-4 people. By 2-4 people, we mean 2 people with plenty of leftovers, or 4 people with little leftovers. Or, if you’re like us, it’s big enough for 2 people; no leftovers!
- Clips on each side to ensure tight fitting lid
- Three settings of high, warm and low.
- Easy to carry your meals with big, heavy handles
- Dishwasher safe lid and pot
Features of the product
Clip tight lid
The sealed lid is clip tight, which is a good addition to this slow cooker. It makes it ideal for those looking for a slow cooker that you can’t really spill all over the floor, no matter how clumsy you are.
The handles are made to be extra easy to hold
The handles on the Stay and Go are some of the biggest handles that we have seen on a slow cooker. They are deliberately this big, as this slow cooker is designed as a simple slow cooker that is usable for the entire family. This may be the best aspect of the slow cooker; it isn’t fancy. It’s just a slow cooker, and does everything you need it to.
For a relatively large slow cooker, it is actually pretty lightweight. This is due to the outer material, which is aluminium. The inner stoneware is the heaviest part of the slow cooker, but even that is not too heavy.
This slow cooker performs exactly as it says it should, which is solid. Whilst there are other slow cookers that may have better specifications, there usually isn’t a massive difference between the performance of this level quality slow cooker.
Ideal for a small family
Due to the size of this slow cooker being 4 quart, this makes it an ideal size for young, growing families who do not need a massive cooker. On the other end of the spectrum, this would also make a good gift for any elderly relatives.
It’s not great to look at
Whilst this might not be of any concern to you, this slow cooker isn’t the most attractive slow cooker that we have ever seen. There are far more attractive slow cookers available on the market.
It isn’t of the very highest quality
As you might expect with a slow cooker at this price, it isn’t of the very best quality. This is no surprise with buying a slow cooker at this price, but if you’re looking for the top quality slow cookers, you might have to up your budget a little bit.
Whilst this is a perfectly good slow cooker, we’ve come to expect a little bit more of Hamilton Beach. They are at the forefront of the cookware industry, so we’ve got our expectations pretty high. There are better releases from Hamilton Beach, but this is undoubtedly a solid option if you’re looking for a basic slow cooker.
