All-Clad 99009


What we like: Those who are proficiency in cookware will already know All-Clad brand for the quality and premium product. When they bring in a slow cooker, consumers like us are expected for premium performance. The All-Clad 99009 is the newer version than 99005.

This cooker is quite large. It comes with 6.5 quarts with oval shape, which is trouble-free for making roomier for whole 5-pound meat. Or, it also goes well with for single serve which plan to have some leftovers for the next meals conveniently. The features are simple, but useful as a busy some of effortless chefs look for. It has adjustable programmable timer, easy-to-handle digital control pad, large LCD display and automatic Keep-Warm. The setup is basic: High, Low and Keep-Warm. The outstanding feature is 26-hour programmable time, which is longest countdown timer available in the market.

The whole body feels strong and sturdy. The outside figure is attractive with stainless-steel finish. The glass lid allows monitoring the food while cooking. The well-design stainless steel grips are strong and practical, which let easy to carry to another place. Clean-up is breezy as both ceramic pot and lid are dishwasher safe.

For outside reviews, The All-Clad 99009 was picked by REAL SIMPLE magazine in 2009 as a best slow cooker, as well as About.com. This slow cooker received excellent rating (A-) from Good Housekeeping Test. Note that the earlier model, 99005 got the highest rating from Consumer Report (2008). The 99009 is also covered in the detailed tests but didn’t get highest rating, however. For owner reviews, we’ve found the controversy: several depressing comments from Amazon.com, Sur La Table and Bed Bath Beyond, as well as many good ratings from William-Sonoma.com, Matrokitchen.com and cooking.com.


What we don't like: There’re many critic reviews that the insert ceramic pot cracked and scratched after several uses, even in normal use. The manufacturer declared that the ceramic pot can only be used for slow cooking appliance, but not in the oven, stovetop, microwave or freeze like some other products. While many complaints pointed to All-Clad unresponsive consumer service, which make much effort for repairing if it had some defect parts. Moreover, for almost $200, some users supposed that they’d expect for superior features.


The bottom line: If you looking for a slow cooker from reliable brand, All-Clad 99009 is nearby. For sturdy stainless-steel body, uncomplicated programmable, 26-hours simmer time, countdown timer and LCD display, it is quite interesting choice for high-end slow cooker.
