The Crock-Pot brand has come up with a new appliance called the Express Crock Programmable Multi-Cooker. This is an all-in-one appliance that has eight settings including meat/stew, beans/chili, rice/risotto, yogurt, poultry, dessert, soup, and multigrain. This particular model holds six quarts and is dishwasher safe! It comes with a recipe book, steaming rack, and serving spoon. This product is worth every penny. I used it one time and it made perfect chili in 20 minutes! It only took about 10 minutes to heat up and I just threw in all my ingredients, pressed the chili button and the digital timer let me know when it was done! Perfect gift idea for anyone on your list that needs simplicity and easy clean-up when it comes to cooking!
