With the list of what you can make in a slow cooker getting longer by the day — mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, bread, caramelized onions, beans, porridge, not to mention dozens of other hearty meals — it's no wonder we've got friends wanting to buy one. (The mostly hands-off cooking part doesn't hurt either.)
Those of us on The Kitchn team with slow cookers have our own favorite models, but we'd be remiss if we didn't turn to you, our readers, and ask you to weigh in: Which slow cooker brand and model do you recommend?
If you have a slow cooker, we want to know about it! Tell us the maker, model, size, and any other details that make it a total win in your mind. Then look for our roundup of readers' favorite slow cookers next week!
