This is a great gift for any cooking enthusiast. The VitaClay Multicooker is a fusion of the time-honored clay pot method of cooking and a modern electronic dual slow cooker and rice cooker, offering a new and better way to accomplish both tasks.
The high-tech looking VitaClay utilizes a mineral-rich liner made from all-natural, hand-selected Zisha clay that retains and enhances the fresh, natural flavor of food and preserves its natural juices and nutrients. Unlike non-stick aluminum or ceramic cookware, the clay liner is pure and free of metals and chemicals like lead or Teflon. The liner is removable and completely dishwasher and microwave safe.
The VitaClay is a fantastic time-saver, through its slow cook/rice cook feature and its set-and- cook capacity, perfect for families that want a home-cooked meal after a busy day. Its unique microcomputer and precision built-in thermostat enable it to self-adjust the heat up or down based on the ingredients in the pot, the volume, and the set time. The timer also allows the cooker to be set to start automatically, then stop cooking and keep the food warm. ($139.99 at www.vitaclaychef.com).
