Griddles are really convenient to have as they are easy to set up. You can turn it on, and get a fabulous meal. The new Versatility Oval Shaped 6-Quart Slow Cooker is one of those amazing appliances that makes it so much easier to create a meal with minimal amount of effort. For further versatility, the cooking vessel can even be used on the stovetop to brown meats–creating a layer of flavor–before the long cooking time. It has about 10 inches by 14.5 inches by 9.5 inches, and the base of the unit offers a decent amount of real estate when functioning as a griddle. In slow cooker mode, it could be said the footprint is reasonable in size for a 6-quart slow cooker.
