I own the Cuisinart multi cooker, do I also need the All Clad slow cooker?

    They do pretty much exactly the same thing. What about the All Clad made you think you'd need it too, if I may ask?

      I guess I just always assume the All Clad version of most anything is better~ but that's not necessarily true correct? The Cuisinart multi cooker does tend to slow cook "fast" much faster than my traditional Cuisinart slow cooker so I've tended to use the multi cooker more to brown, pretty much cook through, and simmer as opposed to slowly cooking food over a longer period of time.

        I think that's a characteristic of most modern "slow" cookers; due to food safety concerns, they all cook at a higher temperature than the older ones did. At least, all of them that I've tried do that, and I've heard the same from others. So I wouldn't expect the AC to be any different.

          Agree.

      No, Aggie.

        Of course that makes sense...I don't know why I always assume "all clad" products are superior...the price tag perhaps?
