My recipe for Slow Cooker Haleem is a favorite in our house during Ramadan as an Iftar meal and many Muslim households have a similar version they hold dear. What helps me make the best haleem and many other dishes like perfectly braised meats, stews, and even soups that require slow cooking is the Calphalon Electrics 7-Quart Slow Cooker, one kitchen appliance I use over and over again.
It is a great machine for simple, but delicious cooking without the worry of when to turn it off because it has a digital timer on it- perfect for busy folks who don’t have time to add one more list of things to remember throughout the day, especially a fasting day.
I’ve had many slow cookers in my years of cooking experience and none have cooked so evenly as this one. Its exterior is durable, unlike many others I’ve had and the interior pot holds in the heat when cooking but isn’t too heavy to remove and wash. Very important traits for an appliance that I’ll be lugging in and out of cabinets or shelving on a weekly basis.
About the Calphalon 7-Qt. Digital Slow Cooker
Calphalon’s exclusive Opti-Heat system uses internal sensors to monitor temperature and deliver even heat throughout the cooking process. This means that food will be cooked thoroughly and evenly, just like it has been doing mine ever since I started using it.
This is what your box will look like when it comes to you, should you be the winner of this awesome giveaway!
Even the hottest food can be moved quickly and easily using the silicone-wrapped handles, which will always remain cool to the touch. Clean-up is also a breeze, with a ceramic pot interior and vented glass lid that are both dishwasher safe and a stainless steel exterior that can simply be wiped down with a damp cloth.
This Calphalon Slow Cooker also comes with a 24-hour timer and large LCD display. The auto settings cook food on high for the first 2 hours, giving the food a great texture and consistency. The cooker will then switch to Low for the remainder of the cooking period, to make sure the food is cooked through and gives it the real slow cooking taste of the same technique done manually over the stove. The built-in timer can be set according to the dish, and the machine will automatically be switched to “Warm” at the end of the cooking cycle, to keep the food at an optimum temperature for serving- very important for food safety.
Simple, elegant, and easy to use AND clean, the Calphalon Electrics 7-Quart Digital Slow Cooker delivers great results with minimal hassle- perfection inc ooking every time…
