Ninja 6-qt SEARious Slow Cooker
I was anxiously awaiting this crock pot. I have been wanting to get one that I can brown or sear my meat in first. Just don't want to spend $$$$ for some of the other Name Brands. This works fabulous and the nonstick surface is super for cleaning up. I made turkey and rice in it the first night. Plan on making some crock pot apple butter next! Thanks QVC :)
I love this machine! It can sear your meat and then slow cook so your meat is fall of the bone tender! It has a buffet setting so it will keep food warm for hours. It will sear, cook, warm up and slow cook your food without heating up your kitchen. It is a fabulous machine!
Good so far
I used this for the first time yesterday and made the spaghetti & meatballs (with angel hair pasta because that's what I had). It turned out pretty tasty. I must have missed a couple of spots when I stirred in between the cooking because some of the spaghetti was clumped together and crispy. It was soooo nice to just use one pot though! Be sure to read the recipes ENTIRELY though before starting in case you need to adjust the amount of water. One suggestion is that the selection dial notch for the feature you want to use needs to be visible. I put a piece of white label maker tape in the notch. A dab of colored fingernail polish or liquid paper might work too. Can't decide what recipe to try next...
Very nice machine. It will replace my electric skillet and the 6 qt. slow cooker for sure. I made a big pot of chicken soup and used the slow cooker setting and it was done in about 2 an a half hrs. I also did a prime rib roast and I was I little concerned if this would do the job. Wow, the roast came out just perfect! I was thrilled. The roast was about 5 lbs. and I followed the recipe that is in the book that comes with this machine. Wonderful! The only reason for not giving it 5 stars, not all is dishwasher safe but with the non-stick finish it really isn't a problem. I know I will use this machine over and over. Thanks QVC!
