It was a Cuisinart kind of birthday for me, last week!
My husband spoiled me by not only replacing my busted, old crockpot, he upgraded me to a top-of-the-line “multicooker”. I’ve only used this thing once already and I tell ya, it’s BOMB.
Yep, it roasts, browns, sautés, steams, and slow cooks. AND it has a timer and automatically shuts down to warm. A kitchen dream come true!
I made a batch of chili this weekend with it – I just browned the meat straight in the crockpot and sautéed the onions and garlic then added the remaining ingredients and flipped it to slow cook.
And of course, it was delicious. And really easy to clean up. And the whole unit is really lightweight. I’m obsessed.
