We love this Hamilton Beach slow cooker! The features on it are fantastic. We especially like the probe setting. You simply insert the probe into your meat and it will monitor the cooking process until the meat has reached the desired temperature. It then automatically switches to a low setting to keep your meal warm until you are ready to eat. There’s no guessing how long it will take to cook. Throw in a few vegetables and have a home-cooked meal with very little fuss!
