Giveaway: VitaClay Smart Multicooker

VitaClay Smart Multicooker Sweepstakes

This is one of the most-used small appliances in my kitchen. I use the VitaClay Smart Multicooker to cook rice, stews, and make soups. Think of it as a rice cooker and slow cooker with an all-natural clay pot. It’s been featured as one of the top-rated slow cookers by Good Housekeeping. I first found out about the VitaClay from my Mom – she uses it everyday to make soup. -Jaden

Amazon.com VitaClay Smart Multicooker Product Description

With the use of computerized clay-heating technology, this fully programmable 6-cup multi-cooker works great for making 30-minute meals, pasta dishes, steam and whole-grain rice, hearty stew, and more. The appliance provides an all-natural clay cooking pot made of mineral-rich Zisha clay, which enhances the flavor and texture of food and preserves essential nutrients. Due to its slightly porous nature and low thermal conductivity, the clay pot absorbs heat while maintaining a steady temperature–perfect for making rice or slow cooking. The cooking pot also offers a naturally nonstick, unglazed design, which means no nonstick chemicals coming in contact with food. Choose from four pre-programmed settings–regular rice, brown rice, stew, or soup. The cooker quickly brings food to a boil–up to four times faster than conventional slow cookers–then reduces the heat to a simmer for the desired time. Other highlights include a cupped heating pad to promote uniform cooking, automatic keep warm for up to 12 hours, a large LCD and 24-hour clock display, and an easy-to-clean design. The cooker measures approximately 10-3/5 by 9-4/5 by 14-2/5 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.
