Full disclosure: I own five crock pots. Don’t judge me. I use them all. (I really do!) They come in especially handy for Thanksgiving dinner prep, but I realize my deep and abiding love of all things slow cooker may not be entirely normal.
That said, if you’re only going to own one crock pot, I recommend springing for one that’s programmable. But if you already own a programmable one—or simply don’t feel the need for it, or can’t afford it—you might be interested in a great deal on one that’s not. And if you ever travel to potlucks or whatever, you definitely want one with a locking lid. So! Behold: Amazon has the Crock-Pot SCCPVL600S Cook’ N Carry 6-Quart Oval Manual Portable Slow Cooker available right now for just $23.99, its lowest price ever.
If you’ve been thinking about a backup crock, or one specifically for transporting, this is a great deal on a highly-rated model.
Fortunately, I already have one with a locking lid. Hear that sound? (It’s my family heaving a giant sigh of relief that I’m not buying another crock pot.)
