Presto Nomad Traveling 8 Quart Slow Cooker’s low rectangular shape in the 8-quart model comes with a “picnic cooler-style” design with a swing-up handle that makes carrying it easier and prevents tip-overs when traveling. It measures 12.2 x 15.8 x 8.5-inches and weighs 8.55 pounds.
Just like any conventional slow cooker, it has “warm,” “low,” and “high” settings on its dial. Its “crock” is a nonstick aluminum “cooking pot” that is heated with an element that runs around its sidewall. Its locking lid seals prevent food spilling while traveling. This extra-large 8-quart size model is able to hold enough food to feed a crowd. This cooker is great for cooking stews, soups, chicken, casseroles, roasts and more.
The Nomad is a perfect portable cooker for buffet-style foods at home or away-pulled pork, hot beef, chicken wings, sloppy joes, and more. The hinged, removable cover also features a large glass window and a detachable utensil holder with silicone cord for securing a utensil during transport. This utensil holder also acts as a spoon rest when serving.
