Calling all cooks and foodies! Winter is obviously the best season to spend indoors treating ourselves to Netflix marathons and lounging at home. It’s also the time of year when we prefer to eat warm meals around the clock, so if we can make cooking easier, we definitely jump on the opportunity.
We just spotted a few Crock-Pot products we never knew we needed and now the gadget is at the top of our wish and gifting list.
The Crock-Pot Lunch Crock Food Warmer is one of the brand’s bestselling items and it stole our hearts at first sight. This warmer is designed for easy travel with an outer lid, cool-touch exterior, easy-carry handle and cord storage. This will definitely help Us save money by cooking at home more and eating out less. The best part about it? This warmer and several others are 20 percent off as part of Crock-Pot’s big sale!
The lunch warmer is designed to warm up to 20 ounces of food and maintain the fresh homecooked taste. This is especially convenient for people who tend to refrain from eating leftovers or those who dislike the taste of food reheated in a microwave.
All we have to do is plug it up and the warmer heats up food in 30 to 45 minutes depending on the density and consistency of the meal. The Lunch Crock Food Warmer comes in six colors with our favorites being the red, pink and lime green versions.
This food warmer is great for whipping up our favorite winter dishes including soup, chili, cream of wheat or oatmeal. Shoppers shared that they treated themselves to the food warming device but also bought several more as gifts for their kids’ teachers, their co-workers and more. So many shoppers also said they gifted the food warmer to their spouses who take lunch to work every day. A few reviewers shared that they bought several so that every family member in their household has their own.
The Lunch Crock Food Warmer is especially great for taking to our workplaces since we can prep the food while we continue to get things done — without battling with colleagues to use the microwave. The food is not heating up all day as it does with a thermos, so we do not have to worry about it drying out, too.
Shoppers who bought the warmer especially appreciate being able to cut down the time it takes to warm up their food during their short lunch breaks. They can let their food warm while still on the clock and as soon as the break begins, get straight to the eating so they can enjoy more of their downtime.
Not only could this make heating meals easier, but we may also find inspiration to cook more in general instead of making our regular restaurant trips.
We are also excited by the other great items in the Crock-Pot’s sale. Along with the Crock-Pot Lunch Crock Food Warmer, we are also getting the Crock-Pot 4.5 Quart Manual Slow Cooker for our bigger meals.
This slow cooker has a “high/low” cook setting but also a convenient “warm” setting. The round stoneware portion is removable and both the stoneware and the glass lid are dishwasher safe. This slow cooker comes in three colors and our favorite is the Damask pattern in classic black and white because it would look better than the average appliance on a kitchen counter.
Cooks who love creating meals using those easy one-pan recipes from Pinterest might also fall for the Crock-Pot 3.5-Quart Casserole Crock Slow Cooker. Being able to toss all of our ingredients into one container is the key to whipping up meals like a chef without sacrificing time or having to wash a ton of dishes.
