Hi, I’m Mary Rogers, and this is the Cuisinart three-in-one multicooker and we call it the cook central it’s extremely versatile Let me show you some of the features and functions first. We have our removable glass lid this is tempered You’ll notice it has a high arch handle it. Also stays cool when you’re lifting it and moving it around its rimmed in steel Which is a nice accent? I’m going to put that down for a moment and next is our removable steaming rack this position with the leg large legs at the bottom is the high position and This is a low position, and you’re just going to put that inside when you’re gonna do any type of steaming I’m gonna set that over here This is your removable cooking pot it’s nonstick inside, so it’s really easy to clean up. It’s six quarts So it’s a generous size So you can make a lot of food especially for entertaining or for um family meals there’s also some really nice little Divots here, which are great for pouring out ingredients after you’re done cooking Has nice sturdy side handles and like I said, it’s removable So when you’re done cooking if you want to for any reason put the leftovers right in the fridge after you cool them it’s easy to do you just put the lid on and you’re all set to go you notice the Housing is all stainless steel. It’s really a beautifully designed it’s easy to keep clean and in the front here you notice that this is the Control panel has a really nice large window so it’s really easy to see Your times and your temperatures when you’re operating the slow cooker the nice thing about this slow cooker has three fully programmable cooking functions on the far left here You have slow cook and the slow cook function has four functions with it inside of it So it has low slow cooking high slow cooking temperature has also a simmer feature and also keep warm then you have your brown saute I really like brown sautee because it’s great especially when you’re doing any type of Braising you don’t have to use a separate pan on top of the stove you can do it right in your cooker and it’s important for a lot of Recipes like the one we’re gonna do today Which is a lemon rosemary?
