We live on a farm and during the summer months things can get quite busy here. I decided to purchase a slow cooker only to discover none are made in the US anymore. This was a concern to me because many crock pots or Slow Cookers from China often contain lead.
The 360 4-quart Slow Cooker is made in the US and the pot is removable from the base. So you can brown meat on the stove first and then set it to slow cook. A great feature.
There are so many great features to the 360 line of cookware and bakeware. Each year I hope to add another piece to my collection.
