When many of us reach our adult years and purchase or rent our first house or apartment, we’re grateful for whatever hand-me-downs we can collect. From those kitchen hand towels that our great-grandma knitted to that wooden handled knife set that may barely cut your clumsy fingers to that flowered, heavily stained crock pot with the chipped glass lid. It’s part of growing up, a sort of rite of passage into adulthood. Sadly, many of us still have these hand-me-down kitchen necessities.
It’s time to give your kitchen a grown-up makeover. We know you love the burnt food stains and 50s design of your mother’s slow cooker (really?), but we promise, this slow cooker is one that will make you want to re-design your kitchen around it or, and probably more realistic, it will at the very least make you love cooking homemade meals again.
My favorite feature is the cord keeper on the bottom of the slow cooker. It keeps your cord hidden for easy storage or, in our case, keeps the cord as short or as long as you need to help prevent it being in the way while you’re cooking. I also love the Auto setting, which cooks your meal on high for two hours the automatically changes to low for the remainder of your programmed cooking time. This is ideal, especially if you’re leaving your meal to cook while you’re out all day at work or Christmas shopping.
Whether you’re cooking for the holiday or looking for an easy way to escape complicated meals because of your excessive holiday cooking, this soon-to-be kitchen favorite may not be one you’ll pass down through generations – you may want to keep this one for yourself!
We don’t care if you gift it or keep it for yourself, but we know you’ll love our friends at Calphalon – they’re giving one lucky As Mom Sees Reader a 7 QT. Digital Slow Cooker of their own for that post-holiday ‘I don’t feel like cooking’ blues!
