Bring the family to the table for a wholesome home-cooked meal. The 3040-BC serves approximately 4-5 people and is ideal for all your favorite slow cooker recipes. Clean up is also a snap with dishwasher-safe removable stoneware that doubles as a convenient serving dish complete with a dishwasher-safe glass lid.
Slow cookers are usually thought of for chili, soup, or pot roast. But the 200-page bonus cookbook that comes with Rival's 4-quart Crock Pot stoneware slow cooker branches out, with recipes like Roast Chicken with Peas, Prosciutto and Cream, San Francisco Cioppino, and Lamb Korma. Not what you'd expect for dinner out of a slow cooker.
Crock Pots are classics, but this one looks like something straight out of a modern, professional kitchen. With a simple design in chrome with black handles and a removable black stoneware crock insert, this 4-quart pot will go with the look of most kitchens. Besides the cookbook, there's also a small catalog of accessories such as tailored vinyl covers, baking pans, meat racks, and thermal carrying cases for transporting food in the stoneware crock.
Clean-up is very easy; warm soapy water will do the trick. (The heating unit is not immersible; just use a soapy rag or cloth.) Do not use scratchy, abrasive cleaners on the chrome exterior. The dimensions of the slow cooker are 12 inches across by 10-1/2 inches high, including handles, feet and lid. Rival provides a limited warranty against defects in material and workmanship under normal use conditions. --Garland Withers
