I’ve made no secret, here, of my deep and abiding love for my crock pot. I wouldn’t say it’s mankind’s greatest invention, but it’s definitely in the top five. There’s something incredibly satisfying about getting dinner done (the prep, anyway) early in the morning and then just sitting down to a hot meal later.
Of course, if you’re not making a one-pot meal, you still have to get your sides ready before you sit down to eat. Which is kind of a drag.
Except that now it isn’t, because with a Slow Cooker Mate you can cook up to three different dishes at once all in your programmable cooker. There’s one big stoneware insert and one shallow, divided insert for your sides. It’s genius. If I had one of these I might never turn my oven on again!
You can order your very own Slow Cooker Mate for $99, or you can win one here from me. (I won’t even require that you invite me over to dinner.) Want to win it?
