Slow cookers, what’s not to love? Up until a few days ago I was smuggly confident I had a very good handle on the slow cooker appliance—brands, sizes, prices and the best inexpensive options out there (see “Everybody Needs a Slow Cooker”). And now I just may need to add a fourth option—a casserole slow cooker.
This is genius. The stone insert in a casserole slow cooker is a 9 x 13 stoneware casserole baking dish. It goes from the slow cooker base to the table for serving and it’s oven-safe, too. And you can leave the insert in the base set on warm to serve on a buffet table. The casserole slow cooker appears to be just perfect for making lasagna, breakfast casseroles, desserts and other casserole-type dishes that work best in that size and shape baking dish.
The Casserole Crock Pot comes in two versions—Manual Low, High and Warm Settings and Programmable Digital. I’ve just now ordered the manual version (half the price of the fancy model) and cannot wait to give it a test drive. Watch for my review and feedback coming up soon in a future post.
