Eastman Outdoors Slow Cookers, Realtree Camo Slow Cooker

Eastman Slow Cooker 3.5 quart Eastman Slow Cookers  in the camo pattern come in two handy sizes, so you can get the size that you will find more useful to your family situation.

The smaller version is The Eastman Outdoors 3.5 quart slow cooker which ideal for smaller families.

And then there is the 7 quart slow cooker which will feed family and friends when you are entertaining.

Both Eastman slow cookers feature the Realtree  Camo Pattern which will appeal to the masculine members of the family and may even encourage the hunters in the family to cook the game they bring home.

Slow cooking is an ideal way to cook your favorite wild game and of course any traditional slow cooker recipe that your family likes. I love rabbit done in the slow cooker, simply add onions, carrots,fatty bacon, peas, potatoe chunks, herbs and of course the cleaned rabbit bits and let it slowly cook. Hmmmmm

Eastman slow cooker 7 quartBoth of the Eastman Outdoors  Slow cookers have   Low, high and keep warm settings.

Slow cooking is pretty much a set and forget way to cook.  And you can pop in all the ingredients in the morning and when you get home after a long days hunt or a day at work, your meal will be cooked to perfection and be ready to serve. You can cook up some extra vegetables if you haven’t added them already to the slow cooker or even cook some rice in the microwave to serve with your meal.  I find that one cup of rice to 2 cups of water, cooked in the microwave on high for 12 minutes is a quick and easy way to bulk up a meal.

I love my slow cooker, especially in the winter months when all I want to do when I get home is eat something hot and nourishing and then curl up on the couch to read or watch TV.

Rival Crockpot Review: Rival 5 Quart Round Programmable Crockpot

rival-crockpotNow this I really like. A stockpot that is programmable so your meals can be ready when you are.

Having said that however, this may be the only positive as a good number of owners of this Rival crockpot weren’t too happy with the performance of this product.

But let’s take a look in more detail.

What We Like

  • This crockpot has a warming function so you can set it so that dinner is ready when you are.
  • It has a removable stoneware insert which makes for easy cleaning
  • A glass lid so you can easily see how your meal is cooking without having to remove the lid.
  • The stoneware crock and lid are dishwasher safe.
  • The warming function keeps food warm without overcooking it.
  • It looks good and the white color will fit in with any kitchen decor.

What We Don’t Like

  • A good majority of reviewers on the net have complained that the exterior of this crockpot gets extremely hot to the touch and that foods are often overcooked and burned. This may just be a matter of reducing the suggested times for meals to avoid overcooking.

Our Recommendation

This is a reasonably priced unit that has the basic functions necessary in a slow cooker but with the negative reviews I would pay the extra for the Rival 6qt Oval Crock Pot which has received a much better response from reviewers on the net. Or if you are a really serious about your slow cooking then we recommend the All Clad 6.5qt Slow Cooker.
