As we speak, I have spicy spaghetti sauce simmering away in my slow cooker at home. Once I get home, I’ll add a handful of dry spaghetti to the mix and in 20 minutes, supper will be on the table. I’m not sure I could survive without my slow cooker.
I’m sure we’re all used to seeing those brown ceramic slow cookers that our mothers received as wedding gifts. Things have come a long way baby. Take for example the Hamilton Beach® Premiere Cookware 5 1/2 Quart Slow Cooker. The oval shape is perfect size for 6 lb. chicken or two 3 lb. roasts. The cooking insert is removable so you can brown your roast on the stovetop them pop it into the cooker—one pot! It also has four settings—off, low, high and keep warm. The last setting is particularly handy for serving buffet suppers or contributing to potlock gathering.
