VitaClay® is one of the healthiest ways to cook rice or prepare a meal. By stewing foods rather than sautéing or frying, you can cook dishes that are low in fat and cholesterol. This translates to delicious meals that are good for you!When it comes to slow cooking, the VitaClay® Chef Gourmet Rice & Slow Cooker truly lives up to its gourmet name. It QUICKLY brings food to boil -- two times faster than most of conventional slow cookers; then, reduces heat to simmer for the desired time. This cooking process retains the texture of food, shortens the cooking time by half while maintaining food’s great flavor. It’s like having an automatic gourmet chef right in your kitchen!
