Crock pot with adjustable temperature?

My sister is looking for a crock pot (slow cooker) with an adjustable temperature control. By adjustable I mean some way to set a specific temperature, not just low or high. I searched on Google but couldn't find anything like that. Does anyone here know of a suitable product?

You might find a Rival unit that has that, since some of them are now electronically controlled.

Send a message via Yahoo to Barb L.
She may have to get a small electric roaster.

K'Aid and All-Clad both have slow cookers with an adjustable temp control, but they cost about $150.00. Ouch!! Both had removable inserts.

The All-Clad one not only has a removable insert. It can also be used on the stove or in the oven.

This might be what you want. The size and extra features seem worth the price if you are going to use this a lot.

KitchenAid Appliances - KSC700SS 7-Quart Slow Cooker - KSC700SS

That's one of the ones I was talking about. But I was wrong on the price. It's normally $129.00.

For anything to adust the temp it needs some type of thermocouple - a temperature sensor, and the electronic stuff that goes with it. And it costs.

Sounds like a great idea. But I would have no idea how to set such a thing.

But if they were cheaply available, maybe we would learn.

Take care and Giod bless.
