Crock Pot Express Crock Programmable Multi-Cooker

What is the Crock Pot Express Crock Programmable Multi-Cooker?
One  of the nicest things about getting a modern stainless steel pressure cooker these days is that these things don’t have to be limited to a single function. Take the Crock-Pot Express Crock Programmable Multi-Cooker, which you can simply use as your Crock Pot pressure cooker. It’s not just a simple cooker, because it’s programmable. It also offers a wide variety of alternative cooking methods, so you can say you also have a Crock Pot, sauté, steamer, and more!  

Features of the Crock Pot Express Crock 

Let’s take a closer look at our review model the SCCPPC600-V1. This is the 6-quart model, though you can go with the 4-quart or the 8-quart version as well. That 6-quart capacity Crock Pot Express Crock should be good enough for an average family, as it’s able to fit in an entire chicken inside the pot. You can also put in about 6 pounds of meat and veggies, which should satisfy a family. This measures 13.6 H x 13.6 W x 11.9 L inches.

With this, you can slow cook and set the cooking time from 30 minutes up to 12 hours. Your dinner cooks itself so you can start it up in the morning, then when you come home from work dinner will be waiting for you all warm and tasty.

With pressure cooking, you can also cook food much more quickly.

You actually have 8 distinct 1-touch buttons for different types of food: meat/stew, beans/chili, rice/risotto, yogurt, poultry, dessert, soup, and multigrain.

There’s also a button for steam and another for brown/sauté, while you also have buttons for delay timer and keep warm.

Pros

  • First of all, you can put the history and reputation of the Crock Pot brand in the “Pros” column. It’s a highly esteemed brand for good reason. It has built an enviable reputation entirely on merit and word of mouth. It really is that good.
  • With this, you can cook very quickly if you want, and you can still get delectable results. You can just get various recipes for the Crock Pot Express Crock Programmable Multi-Cooker online, follow the instructions, and come out shining. All you really need to do is to push a button, so there’s no complicated masterchef procedure to worry about.You can slow cook and have food ready by the end of the day when you come back from work. Your ribs can be ready in 6 hours, rice and beans in 4 hours, and pulled pork in 8 hours. If you’re coming by late to get home, you can always use the delay timer to make the food is done just when you’re coming home.
  • Of course, you can also just speed things up. Your pulled pork can be ready in an hour, your rice and beans in 35 minutes, and your ribs in 45 minutes. If your guests are late, you can always use the keep warm feature.
  • You can also be sure that you’re safe when you’re cooking. The airtight lid stays sealed when you are pressure cooking. You need to release the pressure first before the lid us unlocked.
  • It’s even easy to clean as well. The non-stick cooking pot can be cleaned in your dishwasher.

Cons

  • It’s annoying that technically it doesn’t have a manual function setting.
  • We say “technically” because there’s a loophole in the design. You can just use the Beans/Chili function, and you’re able to set the pressure from Low to High. Also, you’re able to set the cooking time anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours.
  • You may also want to buy an extra seal, as you’ll need it eventually. In fact, you may want to switch seals because the seals absorb the aroma of the food. You may want a different seal when you’re doing sweet stuff like cheesecake with this. Though this is common to all multi cookers, not just the Crock Pot Express Crock.

Consumer Ratings

A lot of people love the Crock Pot Express Crock Programmable Multi-Cooker, and that’s because it’s just so easy to use. It’s a very simple appliance that doesn’t make things complicated, so it’s great for the vast majority of us who just want to eat well despite our non-existent cooking skills.

Who Is The Crock Pot Express Crock For?

What you may notice is that settings are set and it’s not easy at first to change the settings that come with the preset buttons.

You can get around that by using the Beans/Chili button instead. However, this insistence on preset levels underscore the fact that the Crock-Pot Express Crock Programmable Multi-Cooker is meant for those who aren’t really interested in spending too much time on the kitchen cooking. It’s not really meant for budding chefs who like to experiment. 

Instead, this seems primarily for no-nonsense types who just want things done properly and fast. This really makes everything easy, as basically all you need to do is to press a button. You can then trust the preset settings and you can do other stuff besides cooking.
