Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker – 2012 Holiday Gift Guide


Slow cookers are kitchen best friends for moms who are always on the go or are too busy to stay watching a meal get cooked. The 5 Qt. Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker is no exception to the rule, either. It has been a great kitchen helper for me since I started using it the minute it arrived at our doorstep. It really does make my cooking experience a whole lot easier and more convenient. Remember, you can always encounter a lot of slow cookers whose name goes “crockpot”. But, only those spelled with a hyphen and with a ® sign count as the original Crock-Pot that was founded way back in 1970.

5 Qt Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker

The Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker is an oval-shaped programmable slow cooker which allows me to set time and temperature for my cooking at one touch. It has a flat control touch pad in front for the settings. These settings automatically shift to warm when it is done cooking. Also, it is safe to leave unattended for so many hours while I’m away or busy doing something else. Cooking vegetables or even meat while I’m away from home for like the whole day will be worry-free now—when I come home, it’ll be deliciously tender.

I find it amusing that its stoneware can actually be removed and is ready to be served on the table as it is. Its tempered glass lid and black color makes it look really nice and savvy. Being so functional and really clever-looking, it can actually sit on your counter anytime even when guests are around. Not only is it made set for the table or counter but, it is also dish-washer ready and safe. It is made of non-stick coating so stains or hard-to-scrape-off food from cooking are out of my way when I clean it. There are these sure grip handles found at its sides for a secure hold when I lift it up for transferring.

Though it is named as slow cooker, I can also use this Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker in other ways aside from cooking meals good for 4-5 people. For Christmas or for gatherings that I assume will be so many for the Holidays, I can’t think of any other kitchen wonder that can help me warm up some dips or soups all through out the event/occasion. With the right settings, it can pretty sure keep my prepared meals warm while the guests haven’t eaten them yet or while the food is yet to be served later on.

This is one of the many innovative slow cookers from Crock-Pot® that will surely make your cooking or food preparation extra special and highly convenient. You’ll like it as much as I do. It will definitely be a perfect party essential as you prepare your holiday specialties for family and friends or even as a Christmas present.
