Cuisinart PSC-650FR Programmable 6.5 Qt. Slow Cooker
Cuisinart PSC-650FR is a 6.5-quart capacity slow cooker- a generous size cooker for you or your family and guests, and if you especially have busy lifestyles or work schedules, as you can get everything prepared the night before, set it up and program it for food to be ready when you get home. It is programmable up to 24 hours (with the 24hr cooking timer) and on the LCD display panel at the front you can see the On/Off button, Timer – and +, Temp High and Low, Simmer and Warm. There are a digital countdown timer and three cooking modes (high, low or warm settings) to choose from and as soon as your meal is cooked it will switch to “Keep Warm” mode for eight hours till it is turned off or programmed again. It has a removable see-through glass lid that lets you see the cooking process. There is a cooking rack that you can use for a variety of purposes, like cooking your dessert by putting on it and inside the oval shaped ceramic pot. And the cord is retractable so when you’re done with cooking the cord will slide into the base for storage.
Cuisinart PSC-650FR looks good in its brushed stainless steel housing, weighs 19.9 pounds and measures 19.2 x 15.9 x 11.6 inches- is quite heavy and will occupy some space on your bench, so you need to keep in mind that you’re buying something heavy and large. It is easy to operate no matter what you make with it- main meals, stews, entrees, desserts and you can actually serve your meal straight on the table in the ceramic pot it is cooked in.If you wish to cook for a very long time, you can select the very low “simmer” setting and no matter how long you run it, it stays cool to the touch unlike some other models on the market. Both the ceramic pot and the lid are safe to be put in the dishwasher and the exterior can be wiped with a cloth, so it is rather easy to clean. This is a certified and refurbished product so the warranty included is 90 days. The way it works is basically Cuisinart gets a cooker returned by another customer and refurbishes, tests and certifies it and the final product has zero or very little signs of wear or use and you can purchase it at a discounted price. You will get a very detailed user manual that also includes 70 great recipe booklet as well.
