A very wide range of these devices on the market complicates the choice of the optimal model. Knowing their key features simplifies this task. This list includes the following factors.
1. Anti-stick coating the inner pot
Quality of anti-stick coating directly affects its durability.
Popular Teflon is the cheapest and easy to clean. But it has a low mechanical strength and requires careful handling.
A more expensive ceramic coating contains natural clay and is more durable. Ceramics are often coated with additional polymeric materials to increase its strength.
Marble coating is easy to clean due to the high surface smoothness of this mineral. But its hardness varies from 3 to 4 on the Mohs scale. This value is lower even compared to glass.
Of course, it must match to the pot capacity. The power of modern models varies from 200 to 2000 W. This value affects the stewing, roasting and baking duration. Power of about 700 W is sufficient for comfortable cooking for 3 people. Fast cooking mode requires power from 1500 W and above.
3. The number of automatic cooking programs
Modern models have up to 14 programs.
4. The number of modes
Modern models of the upper price segment support up to 8 modes, including the yogurt cooking.
5. Additional functions
The list of the most popular additional functions includes:
– delayed start;
– heating of the ready-made dish with the possibility of switching off;
– multi chef (manual setting of cooking parameters);
– detachable cord;
– 3D heating mode.
