Westinghouse SA21950 Multi-Cooker Review



I stumbled upon this Westinghouse SA21950 Multi-Cooker yesterday by coincidence. After some research, I’ve realized this is one cooker that truly combines the best of all worlds.

It’s compact and portable to take minimal counter or cupboard space in your kitchen. It’s versatile that offers 10 cooking methods into one cooker. It’s affordable for under $100. And did I mention it’s very stylish?

4.2 Quart Capacity


This multi-purpose cooker is measured as 4.2 quarts in capacity, which equates to 16.8 cups if you are so used to cups. For a slow cooker, this may not be a large size, but for a rice cooker, it’s plenty big. For my small family size of three people, I only cook 2 cups of dry rice for a typical meal. I always have left-over rice for the week.

Heating: Digital and Programmable

(Back to Top)

The SA21950 is digital and programmable with all the cooking methods and types of food pre-designed in the cooker so you don’t have to waste any time to tinker around.

Easy to Use and to Clean

(Back to Top)

The cooker comes with a DVD staring the in-house Chef Rick Tarantino who walks you through the entire process from the how to set the timer and use the menu buttons all the way to how to clean and maintain the multi-cooker. The best part is that Chef Tarantino shows you each of  the cooking methods and what to do and the types of food to cook. It’s very thorough. Also the cooker has a written User Manual that you can reference when needed.

Since the inner pot is non-stick, cleaning is really a breeze. A little bit warm soapy water will do the job effortlessly.
