Best Programmable Slow Cooker Options
“Literally the best crock pot ever & gift that keeps on giving.” Daniel E. Juraschek (Harpes Ferry, WV)
With my number 1 choice for the best programmable slow cooker you will not be disappointed. The Hamilton Beach Set and Forget is 6 quarts (enough for you and the family twice over) and has unique sensors to ensure your food is cooked and waiting for you when you get home.
The 3 cooking options are in-built program, where you select an option from the LED screen based on the food you’re cooking and the time you want it to cook in. There is manual, which is just setting the times and temp yourself. And finally, there is cooking based on the included temperature probe – this one takes your control to a whole new level, and ensures your food is properly cooked.
And don’t worry about transporting your beautifully cooked food to a potluck or party because this slow cooker comes with a clip-tight lid to ensure all the goodness stays within.
“The BEST Crock Pot for TEMPERATURE CONTROL and more!” S. Chokel (Western USA)
Number 2 on the list of best programmable slow cookers is one made by Crock Pot – the 6.5 quart stainless steel programmable. It is quite similar to the number 1 choice. ‘Cept it does not include a clip down lid for transport.
It is oval shaped to allow for maximum amount of food inside the pot. It is programmable, of course, and will even switch to ‘keep warm’ once your food is cooked.
This slow cooker is *very* well constructed and you should also notice that the metal side handles have silicone stay-cool wraps. Check out this slow cooker if you like style in your kitchen.

The Cuisinart 3.5 quart personifies simplicity. You will never have to read directions for this one. All you do is use the touchpad control to set the up-to 24 hour countdown timer, one of the 4 cooking modes and go away to have some fun and wait.
So yeah, at number 3 on the list of best programmable slow cookers, the Cuisinart comes with a dishwasher safe pot and lid, nonslip rubber feet and stay cool handles to allow you to move it around your kitchen with ease.
At about $55, you are getting a programmable slow cooker that will last you ages and ages and cook you amazing restaurant quality meals – every single night if you so please.
“Stop Searching the Reviews! This is the one!” M. Benedict (Ottumwa, IA)
Quite possible the nicest, most sleek looking slow cooker in existence! The Crock Pot 6 quart programmable is polished stainless steel and made to last. And I really cannot believe it is only about $50 for all this elegance.
So if you want to be able to feed 7 or more people at once and want a four setting programmable slow cooker with one touch control then this one is for you.
It has a rectangular design but oval cook pot to ensure you have ample space for your food and available room for your cooker in the kitchen. You can’t beat this one for the price.
“Excellent choice for a truly useful appliance.” HMC (Richland, WA USA)
Here we have a round 6 quart programmable slow cooker with brushed stainless steel exterior. It is made by Cuisinart and costs around $90. With it you can do just about anything you please – including cooking up a storm for your friends and family with ease.
You get simmer, low and high modes of cooking temperature, a 24-hour timer and auto keep-warm to ensure your food stays warm for you and does not overcook.
I am truly excited to see the reviews of this Cuisinart (with people loving its ease of use and cooking reliability) and it is good to see a slow cooker with a 3-year warranty.

Coming in at number 6 on this list is the Italian-made DeLonghi 5 quart. It has everything you would expect in a programmable slow cooker including a 10 hour timer, easy to clean ceramic pot bowl, touch button control and a sleek compact design.
