I’m a fan of using slow cookers. It’s nice for cooking something slow all day or for parties to keep things warm. For parties I’ve kept mac n cheese, bbq meatballs, pulled pork, and tacos warm. Some don’t have the warm option and that’s an option that I must have.
This one also goes to warm automatically after cooking which is nice if you are getting home a little later than expected.
My slow cooker is from Crock-Pot (brand) and in addition to having the warm button the stoneware is removable and dishwasher safe so cleanup is easy. Mine doesn’t have the locking lid but otherwise is the same as the one pictured on the right. I’m sure the locking lid would be nice when transporting it filled to a party.
