Cuisinart 3-in-1 Cook Central (MSC-600) Demo Video

hi I’m Mary Rogers and this is the
Cuisinart three-in-one multicooker and
we call it the cook central it’s
extremely versatile let me show you some
of the features and functions first we
have our removable glass lid this is
tempered you’ll notice it has a high
arch handle it also stays cool when
you’re lifting it and moving it around
its rimmed in steel which is a nice
accent I’m going to put that down for a
moment and next is our removable
steaming rack this position with the leg
large legs at the bottom is the high
position and this is a low position and
you’re just going to put that inside
when you’re gonna do any type of
steaming I’m gonna set that over here
this is your removable cooking pot it’s
nonstick inside so it’s really easy to
clean up it’s six quarts so it’s a
generous size so you can make a lot of
food especially for entertaining or for
um family meals there’s also some really
nice little divots here which are great
for pouring out ingredients after you’re
done cooking has nice sturdy side
handles and like I said it’s removable
so when you’re done cooking if you want
to for any reason put the leftovers
right in the fridge after you cool them
it’s easy to do you just put the lid on
and you’re all set to go
you notice the housing is all stainless
steel it’s really a beautifully designed
it’s easy to keep clean and in the front
here you notice that this is the control
panel has a really nice large window so
it’s really easy to see your times and
your temperatures when you’re operating
the slow cooker the nice thing about the
slow cooker it has three fully
programmable cooking functions on the
far left here you have slow cook and the
slow cook function has four functions
with it inside of it so it has low slow
cooking high slow cooking temperature
has also a simmer feature and also keep
warm then you have your brown saute I
really like brown sautee because it’s
great especially when you’re doing any
type of braising you don’t have to use a
separate pan on top of the stove you can
do it right in your slow cooker and it’s
important for a lot of recipes like the
one we’re going to do today which is a
lemon rosemary
chicken where you want to get a nice
brown on that chicken before you
actually slow cook it helps you develop
really great flavors the other thing is
that the last function is steam and
steam can be used to steam vegetables
fish you can even do custards in there
the nice thing about the steam function
is it works up to 90 minutes and one
thing I forgot to mention on the slow
cook function is that it’s programmable
up to 24 hours and when you use the slow
cook function it also goes automatically
to keep warm when it’s done cooking
after you’ve programmed it for the
proper time and that’s really important
because say you’re going to be late
getting home from work and you’re like
oh wow you know I put the slow cooker on
this will automatically switch to keep
warm so you don’t have to worry about it
your food will still be nice and hot
when you get home and you can serve it
right away the other thing we should
mention too is that when you’re doing
ground saute the temperature is adjusted
by pressing this button down or up and
that’s how you pick your temperature and
that temperature can go from 150 all the
way up to 400 degrees so you get a nice
high heat on that so today what we’re
gonna do I’m gonna shut it off actually
for a second and then I’m gonna start
again
I’m gonna brown saute so Brown saute and
I’m gonna do on Brown saute on 400 and
what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna let
it heat up for a few minutes and then
I’m gonna come back and I’m gonna start
making my rosemary chicken so now what
we’re gonna do is we’re gonna get
started by making our rosemary lemon
chicken now I just want to tell you what
I did to program this to heat it up in
advance what I did was I hit brown saute
I hit the plus button twice to go on 400
and then I hit start and what’s gonna
happen is the 400 will flash on and off
until it gets up to temperature when
it’s actually up to temperature it’s
gonna beep to let you know you’re ready
to cook now what we’re gonna do is
remove the lid and I’m going to put in a
little bit of olive oil right in the pot
and then we’re going to start adding our
chicken in first what I did just so you
know is I pre-seasoned this
flour with salt and pepper you can
actually if you prefer what you can do
is directly season the the chicken but
we’re gonna do is dredge it in the flour
lightly each piece we’re gonna put it
right in the pot it’s going to continue
on we’re gonna do six pieces at a time
but today I’m gonna just do the half so
you can see how simple and easy it is
when you put the chicken in the slow
cooker make sure they’re not touching
each other you know spread them out as
best you can today we’re using chicken
thighs I like to use chicken thighs
because has a lot of great flavor and
also is really moist okay so let’s keep
doing this you can obviously use your
hands if you prefer you don’t have to
use the tongs just doing this so that my
hands don’t get dirty and this is a
really really flavorful recipe and it’s
also really simple and easy to make you
can cook enough chicken in here for a
family and even have leftovers if you
have a smaller group of people that
you’re feeding so continue just dredging
this lightly in flour and this is going
to help later with finishing your dish
because what’s gonna happen is that
flour is gonna help make a nice sauce so
we’re gonna do is cover the lid we’re
going to let it brown and then we’re
going to come back and turn the chicken
over so now what we’re going to do is
we’re gonna check on the chicken make
sure it’s brown and then we’re going to
turn it over take off the lid
I’m gonna show you how nice and brown
the chicken dot can see and what we’re
gonna do is we’re going to turn the six
pieces over I want to show you how
really nicest Browns and sautes that’s
really helpful when you’re gonna do a
braising like this slow cooking it helps
you really incorporate a lot of great
flavor into your chicken so we’re just
gonna put the tongs down I’m gonna put
the lid on we’re gonna let the other
side Brown and then we’re gonna come
back and finish off the cooking for the
recipe so now we’re gonna do is take the
chicken out because it’s browned on both
sides you can really hear it sizzling
I’m just gonna show you how nice it’s in
brown it is on the other side got some
really nice color on there so we’re
gonna do now is reserve the chicken and
continue on with the recipe there’s
really I’m going to be a fragrant and
Flav flavorful dish can we get done so
the next thing we’re gonna do is we’re
gonna turn the temperature down by
pressing this button twice and that’s
gonna bring it down to 350 and what
we’re gonna do is we’re gonna add our
onions and start browning our onions
this is going to add a lot of great
flavor to the dish so I’m just gonna
toss this around a little bit to get
some of the juices from the chicken
mixed into the onions and we’re gonna
start browning that and I’m gonna add a
couple more ingredients so first we’re
going to add our rosemary sprigs it’s
gonna make it really nice and flavorful
and the salt and then give it a chance
to brown a little bit whoops I forgot
the garlic just put the garlic in
and then we’re going to mix that up a
little bit and they’ll let it give it a
chance to brown and what I’m gonna do
now is add some lemon juice it’s gonna
give it a really nice fresh flavor we
gotta add the lemon juice
let it cook a little bit let it reduce
and then I’m going to continue on this
is a really really simple and easy
recipe to make now what I’m gonna do is
add the chicken broth lots of extra
flavor also that you need the liquid
because you’re slow cooking and lots of
lemon zest which is gonna give it a nice
color after it’s done cooking and then
what we’re gonna do is I’m gonna put the
chicken back in add some lemon slices
you just put the chicken it doesn’t
matter now that it’s browned if they’re
touching each other it’s gonna lay the
chicken on top of the onions now this is
a dish that really only had to take a
few minutes to put it together you can
do this in the morning really quick or
on the weekend and then we’re just gonna
add our lemon slices all over it’s gonna
add really nice fragrance and also it’s
gonna look beautiful when you go to dish
it up later
and now what we’re gonna do is we’re
going to put the lid back on and now
we’re going to program it to slow cook
and the one thing I like to mention
about this is this is where you can use
your combination cooking without having
to turn the Machine off you just switch
to slow cook and then you’re going to
put the temperature it’s automatic comes
on low you’re gonna press it once so
it’s on high and now what we’re gonna do
is we’re gonna actually put the timer on
now this happens to cook for two hours
so you set it on two hours what’s gonna
happen it’s gonna continue to cook and
we’re gonna come back and check on it
and show you what it really looks like
when it’s all done so let me show you
what the chicken will look like when
it’s all done cooking after the two
hours it’s a beautiful dish it’s really
flavorful
you can use you know a more inexpensive
cut of chicken thighs are not expensive
and you make a beautiful tasty meal for
your family
