Proctor Silex merged with Hamilton Beach in 1990…
Proctor Silex is a subsidiary of Hamilton Beach and, as such, if you want more Proctor Silex like slow cookers take a look at the Hamilton Beach page for more options. Still, Proctor Silex sells under its own name and they continue to be a popular option of slow cooker.
They tend to stick with the budget range of slow cooker and their bestselling, by far, are their 1.5 quart round and oval options…
Best For Bachelors and Small Families
Do you want a round, manual, 1-3 serving size, $20 slow cooker?
This slow cooker overwhelmingly impresses people. It is simple, easy to use and actually slow cooks meals over long period of time.
Its manual control allows for keep warm, low and high temperature settings. Its pot is round and dishwasher safe. The lid is see-through, as you can see. The handles stay cool so that you can easily move around the cooker over the course of the day.
All and all this is a pretty solid option if you are a bachelor or have a small family.
Best For Potlucks (Cook at home and carry to the party)
You will notice that this green (or yellow, if you want) round slow cooker has a way of fastening the lid down using stretch bands. They come in the box. And so, if you enjoy cooking at home and carrying your food straight to the party – this is the one for you.
The stretch bands are at first glance: cheap and flimsy looking. But $20 or so, they do a fine job of stopping spills.
The slow cooker has low, high and keep warm temperature settings. Its pot and lid are dishwasher safe. And you can choose it to be green or yellow.
Watch out for:
- The brightness of the green and yellow.
Best Value For The Money
At 4 quarts and only about $20, I have to award this Proctor Silex slow cooker the best value for money title. This is simple based on the fact it is 4 quarts and the same price as the 1.5 quart options above.
Like all the Proctor Silex slow cooker options this one has temperature modes of low, high and keep warm. It has a dishwasher safe pot and lid and a round shaped pot.
