Have you been keeping up on the phenomenon that is the Crock Pot Girls? From a group of friends who just wanted to share a few crock pot recipes that sure took off in a big way! For a simple, smaller capacity slow cooker, the 3 Quart Rival Crock Pot we posted yesterday (still available for only $12.99 by the way) is perfect. But if you want something bigger, with a few more bells and whistles? Feast your eyes on this baby, the Hamilton Beach Set N’ Forget Programmable 6 Quart Slow Cooker. It’s currently down to $37.03 at Amazon, with free shipping, which is the lowest price I’ve ever seen on this model.
I’ve owned this particular slow cooker since last fall and let me tell you, it is awesome! It’s large enough to handle just about any recipe. It has 3 cooking modes – program, manual and probe. I love using the probe mode when I’m cooking chicken, I always know that it gets cooked to the right temperature. Once it gets there, it automatically switches to the warm setting and keeps the meal warm until we’re ready to enjoy. I paid about $48 when I bought mine and have had no regrets, so I think this price is one to pounce on.
One of my favorite things to make in the slow cooker? Apple butter – you can find my favorite recipe here. What’s your favorite crock pot recipe?
