The most coveted non-essential kitchen item is undoubtedly the slow cooker. We've talked about this kitchen appliance countless times here on Kitchn because we know our readers love it. Simply put, the slow cooker just makes cooking easier. When you're in a rush, or stressed, or busy, you know you can rely on dumping some ingredients in the slow cooker, walking away, and coming back to a delicious meal.
If you've been on the fence about buying this trendy kitchen tool — or maybe it's just time to say goodbye to the one you have now — there's a pretty sweet sale happening on Amazon for the Crock-Pot. Today this six-quart slow cooker is on sale for $39, and it normally costs $60. That's 35 percent off.
This Crock-Pot is an Amazon best-seller. It's been reviewed almost 3,500 times and has a four-star rating. As I mentioned, this is a six-quart slow cooker, which means it can hold about a six-pound roast. You can digitally program this slow cooker for cook times that last for up to 20 hours.
The only negative aspect I'm seeing regularly in the reviews is that some people mention that this Crock-Pot does cook at higher temperatures than expected. If you do buy this slow cooker, make sure to test this out and report back.
