How does it cook?

For slow cooking the Cuisinart MSC-600 3-In-1 offers three choices of temperature, high low and simmer. If the meal needs to be slowly cooked for over eight hours or in just a few it’s very adaptable to time available. It also offers flexibility with its steaming rack, vegetables and fish can be steamed to perfection and very conveniently by just adding liquid placing food on top of the rack and placing the lid on top. After the MSC-600 is done cooking it cleverly changes to keep warm mode, this feature is extra useful if you lose track of time after setting the slow cooker and you’re late getting home, no chance of burnt stew!

The low temperature settings allow for a slower and slightly more tender outcome if cooking meat however it won’t take over six hours to cook even on this heat. Meanwhile high temperature cooks at about 400°F, meaning this setting is capable of cooking within 3 1/2 hours.

Does it just slow cook?

With three functions brown, sauté and steam the MSC-600 can cook in different ways all in the 6 quart container. I particularly enjoy the steam function, all you have to do is place vegetables on top of the rack, add a little water close the lid and it will steam vegetables to perfection, leaving all the nutrients within.


the design of the Cuisinart MSC-600 3-In-1 is fairly simple but unique in a couple ways, firstly the glass lid has handles on the crock pot that don’t get too ho dumbass t after the slow cooker has been on all day, an excellent safety feature for quick serving. Secondly, the 6 quart crock pot has non-stick coating on the inner to help with sautéing and browning meat, it also makes cleaning a doddle.

As you can see the control panel is fairly simple to use, just select one of the three cooking functions, Brown, sauté or steam, specify the time and cooking temperature (up to 400 degrees F) and press the start button.

Because of the dishwasher safe steaming rack, lid and pot cleaning up is fairly easy. Obviously it isn’t recommended to put the 6 quart container into the dishwasher its nonstick surface means a good wipe down with fresh soapy water is all the Cuisinart MSC-600 needs.
