The Crock-Pot® VersaWare™ Pro is not your grandmother's slow cooker. The timer automatically switches to a warm setting when the cooking time has expired. The 6-quart oval stoneware crock does double duty as a saute pan and may also be used in the oven as a Dutch oven. If you've been thinking about replacing your old Crock-Pot®, this is the one to put on your gift wish-list.
The Nesco® roaster oven is a countertop stand-alone oven with a temperature dial just like a standard range oven. Unlike a low-high slow cooker, you can regulate the temperature at will to suit your recipe. It uses less power than the oven and won't heat up your kitchen.
This deep fryer automatically filters the oil and saves it to a container so you can re-use the oil up to 15 times. As well as being cost-effective on oil, it is also easy to clean in the dishwasher, making it a perfect gift.
Convenient counter-top electric grill also functions as a panini sandwich maker. The nonstick T-Fal finish makes it easy enough to clean with a damp sponge, but it is also dishwasher-safe.
