I’m sure you all know by now just how much I love my slow cookers. I have several and use them a couple times a week. Not just for dinners, either. The slow cooker has made my life as a busy mom of four so much easier! I share my favorite recipes for the slow cooker and I’ve gotten a lot of feedback on just how much you all love the crock pot too!
If you have a crock pot lover in your life I’ve put together a list of all of my favorite slow cookers, big and small, that make the perfect gift! There are so many options for cooking, entertaining, and making life simple that I just had to share.
For everyday use there are a few options that I recommend. This 7 quart programmable slow cooker is a must have for a large family. The locking lid and programmable features means you don’t have to worry about being home when your food has finished cooking. And it’s so big that I even managed to cook our Turkey in it for Thanksgiving!
I Also love having this 4 quart slow cooker for making soups or keeping beverages warm. I often make soup for dinner or a side and this one is the perfect size and is great for having an ‘extra’ slow cooker to go with your larger one.
And don’t forget about the InstaPot – it’s a pressure cooker and slow cooker all in one! This will cut your cooking time in half!
And you can’t forge the accessories! I love these slow cooker carrying bags – they keep your food warm and easy to take along with you. A great idea when you’re heading to a potluck. A silicone roasting rack is a great addition to any slow cooker, giving you the option to keep your food lifted up and out of the juices produced – makes cooking squash or potatoes a breeze! You can even use this for ‘roasting’ a chicken or fish.
Do you have any other favorite crock pot or slow cookers? I’m always looking for new ideas!
