One of the best feelings at the end of a long day is coming home to an already-made dinner. We're not talking about ordering Seamless or picking up takeout; we mean a home-cooked meal that's ready to go, thanks to your slow cooker.
There are hundreds of slow cookers on the market, but according to Amazon users the top model is the Crock-Pot 6-Quart Programmable Cook & Carry Oval Slow Cooker with Digital Timer. With four out of five stars and almost 4,000 reviews, it's one of Amazon's best-selling products.
Though it doesn't have fancy, high-tech settings or Wi-Fi connectivity, it's a simple machine that gets the job done. One perk is the digital timer, which lets you program the cook time and means you never worry about overcooking again. One reviewer notes, "Absolutely the best crockpot I have ever owned. I upgraded as my old one was just not doing the trick anymore. I really enjoyed the locking handles and the ability to set a timer."
The machine is extremely affordable ($52.50) and can cook a meal large enough to feed seven people. There's also a Cook & Carry feature that allows you to lock the lid, making traveling a breeze—a feature many potluck-friendly users have noted is a huge plus. "The lid locks are great if you're transporting. No spills and no mess," one reviewer writes.
Now the only decisions left to make is what to make for dinner.
