With the warm weather here, you might not be thinking of hearty foods like stews and such, so a slow cooker could be the last thing on your mind. But, slow cookers cook way more than just stews, and if you are a working person, they can be a lifesaver. Walmart has slow cookers on rollback with as much as $21 off, so this is a great sale to check out.
Even as a stay-at-home mom, I find it hard to find time to get dinner ready. I usually work in the afternoons right until I pick my children up from school and then we have about 30 minutes to get something ready and eat before we go to extracurricular activities on most nights. If I could prepare dinner in the morning and have it cook all afternoon, it would make a big difference in what we eat on those nights. The great thing too is that a slow cooker won’t heat up your house like an oven will, so even on those scorching hot days, a slow cooker is a better idea than something baked in the oven.
The Crock Pot Smart-Pot 5-quart (4.7L) slow cooker is a great low-cost slow cooker. It also says that the crock pot uses less energy than the stove, which is great when your hydro bills rocket while using your air conditioning. This one was $39.96, now $29.
The Crock-Pot 5-quart oval programmable slow cooker has many more bells and whistles than the one above, but for the same price. The only advantage I don’t see to this one is that it is white and the black looks much nicer. Was $44.97, now $29.
There are two other models available, both were their own perks, so it is all about what you need, but for less than $40, you can get an amazing slow cooker. Of course, they also ship for free.
