A West Bend slow cooker is a type of pot which maintains a relatively low temperature for a long period of time. This allows for unattended cooking of pot roasts, stews, other meats or vegetables. This is ideal solution for foods that do not take well to boiling, especially cheaper cuts of meat. The food can be set to cook before you leave for work, and the meal is ready when you arrive home.
A West Bend cooker may come with a 5- or 6-quart capacity, combined with adjustable temperature controls. This combination allows you to create a meal for a small group of people just as easily as a large crowd.
Many people appreciate the low number of dishes created by a slow-cooked meal. West Bend slow cookers take this a step further. They are dishwasher-safe and coated with a non-stick surface. They are also oven-, freezer- and range-top safe.
The base of a West Bend slow cooker doubles as a mini griddle. You can include flatbreads or grilled sandwiches in your meal by using this griddle, and you won't create more dirty pots and pans.
