Being in the kitchen is something that I enjoy. It is a part of being a wife and mom that is fun. Preparing meals that my family loves is an adventure. And to go on that adventure I want the right equipment. For several years I was a Pampered Chef Consultant, so I have lots of wonderful cookware, bakeware, and tons of kitchen gadgets that I love to use.
I'm always on the lookout for great kitchen tools to add to my collection. And I really like when I find things that are functional. Oneida is a company that makes wonderful items for the kitchen. We have a knife block with a knife set from Oneida that we love. They also make things from glassware to dinnerware and great kitchenware too.
My cookware collection includes two different sets from two different companies. And one of the sets was a wedding gift (from over 10 years ago). So, when I had the chance to try a new Oneida Stainless Steel Multicooker, I was very excited. I don't have anything that will do all of this in one. And I've always thought another stockpot would be handy.
The Oneida Stainless Steel Multicooker is an 8 quart size, which is perfect for soups, sauces, pasta, and so much more. They also have a 12 quart one available. The stainless steel gives it a sleek look, and it has a high mirror finish that is easy to clean. It includes the 8 QT stockpot, steamer, strainer and a tempered glass lid. All of these fit together for easy storage. It has "an encapsulated aluminum base" that helps with uniform heating, which I think is an essential for cookware. The stockpot and steamer both have handles that make it easy to use too. It is recommended to only hand wash the multicooker (which isn't a problem for me, since I don't own a dishwasher). And it does come with a 10 year limited warranty.
I think the Oneida Stainless Steel Multicooker would make a great addition to any kitchen. It's so easy to use and easy to clean. I have made soups, pasta, and other things in it. My favorite features are the handles and everything that stacks together. It's great to have several tools in one to use.
Oneida has this on sale on their website for almost half price, and on Amazon.com for even cheaper! If you're interested in a new stockpot/multicooker, you should jump on this now. It would also make a great gift, especially for the upcoming spring/summer wedding season!
Buy It: The Oneida Stainless Steel Multicooker is available in stores, from their online store, or other places online.
