Popular Programmable Slow Cookers

Do you rush home after a long day of work or errands – through traffic – worrying the entire time what you will cook for dinner?

Do you resist the act of cooking itself and settle – lots of the time – for unhealthy artery clogging fast food or mediocre TV dinners?

Does your spouse or family remark of their lacking dinners you work so hard to create and stress so much over?

If I were you I would quit this routine immediately… Because in due time you will probably have a panic attack from the stress, have road rage from the anger, a heart attack from the unhealthy food, or worse yet, end up resenting your family or spouse for EXPECTING a sterling meal FROM YOU each night.

Well there IS a simple solution… With a programmable slow cooker you can chuck a hunk of meat, some veggies and potatoes – enough to feed the family twice over – in the pot in the morning touch a few buttons and leisurely return home at 4 or 5pm to a restaurant quality meal. And you can do this day-in-day-out because the following slow cookers are tried and tested and loved by many thousands of people who were once just like you…

Popular Slow Cookers For Potlucks

Crock Pot Cook and Carry Manual Slow Cooker Most Popular For Potlucks – Crock Pot

Christmas 2010 I was living on my own in a small mining town in Western Australia. A few friends were putting on a potluck style Christmas Day dinner and asked me to bring a dish – of whatever I wished.

I had recently purchased the Breville Stainless 7 qt (popular manual number 7) so I decided to be different and cook up enough chilli to feed a sports team. On the day everything was working out perfect. My chilli was delicious, the sun was shining and I had a cold beer in hand.

Four o’clock rolled around, which meant it was time for me to get this pot of chilli to the house in question. I decided the only way to do it was to put the pot in the passenger seat of my car and drive it to the house. I would then return my car home and come back on foot with beers and party hat in stow.

One darting cat later and my entire pot of chilli is in the glove box, on the dash and all over the seat and floor of my brand new Toyota work truck…

If I had either a proper sized tote bag or the lid was lockable (or that damn cat wasn’t darting) I would have arrived at the party on time with chilli instead of an hour late with nothing but beers and party hat.

My best advice for you is if you think you will at all – ever – need to transport your slow cooked food to a party buy one of these popular potluck slow cookers… They just have the added feature of spill resistance via clip on lid or tote bag.
