Did you grow up in a Crock-Pot® house? Or do you use the classic timesaver in your own kitchen now? I love to use mine and find it a must have in my kitchen. In fact, I currently own 4 full sized and 2 mini sized versions
Well, Crock-Pot® has a new NFL Crock-Pot® Slow Cookers series, which lets you choose from all 32 of your favorite NFL teams. Plus, in early November they launched the Crock-Pot® Create-A-Crock™, which lets you upload family photos and other images to your own, personalized slow cooker.
I recently went online and placed an order for the Crock-Pot® Create-A-Crock™ provided to me by Crock-Pot®. It should be arriving any day and I can’t wait to see it. The option of adding your own personal photos to your Crock-Pot® is a fun idea and would make a unique gift. However, you don’t even have to add photos if you don’t want to. I chose not to add photos to mine and just loved the idea of choosing a fun design. I picked a purple gingham design. It was hard to choose because there are so many fun designs!
You also get to pick the size and design of the Crock-Pot®. There are 5 to choose from. I picked the 5.5 qt with the pre-set temperature settings. The great thing about this one is when pre-selected cooking time is complete, this slow cooker will automatically shift to the “Warm” setting. So not need to stress if you are not home and running late. Dinner is warm and waiting for you when you arrive.
Two of the Crock-Pots® I own have the black inserts so I elected to get one this time with a white insert. Plus, I thought it look best with the design I choose. I really did have fun decided on the entire design of my Crock-Pot®.
The folks at Crock-Pot® are providing a Crock-Pot® for 1 lucky RMK reader to create along with a Crock-Pot® calendar cookbook, three Crock-Pot® seasoning mixes and a Crock-Pot® slotted spoon.
To enter, just leave me a comment on how you would design you Crock-Pot®. Would you include photos or just pick a fun design? You you pick a NFL Crock-Pot®? If so what team would you pick? You have until Thursday Dec 6 at midnight (MST) to enter. Winner of the giveaway will be announced in this post after the deadline.
Contest is now closed. Winner is announced at the bottom of this post.
I also have created a easy recipe to make in your Crock-Pot®. It is a simple salisbury steak. If you want you could also cook the masked potatoes to go along with this dish in your Crock-Pot®! See, this is why you need more than one Crock-Pot®.
My family loved this comforting dish. I mean you can’t go wrong in my house with meat and potatoes. I also made sure there was plenty of gravy to eat with those potatoes too! You could even get this already the night before and place the insert in the fridge. Then just place it in the Crock-Pot® in the morning and you are all set for dinner that night.
