The iStir Crock-Pot 6-Quart Slow Cooker does the stirring for you so you don't have to. With the slow cooker's countdown digital timer and automatic stirring, you are provided the convenience of preparing food with perfect results, even if you are not in the kitchen. Simply prepare ingredients, set cook time and attach the motor housing with proper paddle in place. Choose the general purpose Crock-Pot paddle for soup and chili or the stew paddle for thick stew and more dense dishes. After an initial two-hour delay, the stirring self-activates every 30 minutes to ensure thorough mixing and even heating until Crock Pot is turned off.
