Christmas is a wonderful time of the year but it can also be a little stressful too. The new Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker is here to help take the stress out of cooking at Christmas. We were kindly sent this to review. Here’s our thoughts.
When the new Crock-Pot arrived in the office, John from our team was keen to put it through it’s paces. John said:
“Upon lifting the multi-cooker out of the box I can safely say it’s not too heavy and comes already assembled, all I had to do was attach the plug, place the unit into the heating base and it was basically ready to go. I hate it when something arrives and there’s a hundred different assembly points I have to go through before I can use it, so this was a big positive for me.
I looked at the included instructions which tells you how to use each function but on the front of the Crock-Pot there is everything you need to know, so for example if you are cooking a chicken you simply press the ‘Poultry’ setting on the Crock-Pot and you add in your flavours etc – add in the chicken breast, put on the lid and it will cook for 30 minutes, allow to stand for 10 minutes before you remove it and that’s it! So I looked through the rest of the settings, I could steam veg or rice, make some festive yogurt, soups, meat/stew, desserts and even saute food.
I decided to try making some mulled wine which was simple to do. I added in my mulled wine, a few cloves and cinnamon sticks before placing it on a low temperature for around 2 hours. Before I knew it I had hot, tasty mulled wine. I felt this was great because I could serve this up for a party or on Christmas day with very little effort. I could even make this in the morning and have it set on the ‘Keep Warm’ setting which made sure my drink stayed nice and warm until I was ready to serve it.
Adjusting the temperature and pressure was as simple as pressing a button and moving up or down until I got the right settings and with the included recipe book, I could easily make healthy, tasty meals when I’m really busy or when I’ve got my family and friends round!
Overall I thought the Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker made cooking so much easier and I could have any type of meal I wanted, especially when I was busy, ready at literally the touch of a button.”
