Slow cooker?

Can someone recommend a green slow cooker? My research online has turned up the vita clay, Sunpentown zisha slow cooker and Sanyuan slow cooker. Any recs are appreciated!

Re: Slow cooker?

  • I can honestly say I've never even considered this and I use my slow cookers like crazy.


    The vitaclay is only 3 quarts.  That might be enough for your day to day chicken breasts, ,beans, and rice, but most standard crock pot recipes, particularly for soups and stews, would need a 4 or 6 quart pot.  It depends what you use a slow cooker for, but I know a 3 quart wouldn't be practical at my house.

  • What makes a slow cooker "green"? Or what makes a standard slow cooker NOT green?
  • Oh boy....I've now just found my reason to get another slow cooker.  I have a cheapo Walmart one that I've had for a few years and it works just fine but I love the look/idea of those clay ones!  Also the digital panel on my crockpot broke off so you just have to know which button is which.  Now I'm kind of leaning towards the Vita Clay Smart Multicooker since it would be super convenient to be able to combine my slow cooker and rice maker into one appliance!
