What can be better than coming in from the cold after a long day at work to the delicious aroma of dinner, cooked and ready to eat? Nothing, we say! Let's get those slow-cookers dusted off and put them to work. Click through for slow-cooker reviews, tips, and some recipes to inspire your weekend cooking...Our slow-cooker has to be one of our favorite kitchen appliances, and despite its bulk, it never fails to survive our kitchen-clearing sweeps. It's good for making big batches that we can eat all week or freeze for a quick meal down the road. It also leaves our oven and stove-top free for other cooking, which comes in particularly handy around the holidays.
