Finally a REAL One Pot Meal!

The crockpot's (or slow cooker depending on what you call it) claim to fame has always been these two things:

1. You can "set it and forget it" and
2. You can make "one pot meals"

For me neither of those things had ever been possible before I found the Slow Cooker Mate. Why not you wonder? Well  first of all in regard to the claim that you can "set it and forget it," I have owned about four crockpots in my young adult life and each one proved to cook way faster and hotter than the setting read. I don't know how many times I cam home from a long day at work to have burnt, shriveled up meat that was all stuck to the bottom of the crockpot. Great. I come home starving and tired and now I am soaking and scraping out the inedible meal I had left to "slow cook" that morning. Secondly, I am not sure that any of those "one pot meals" actually came out decent. More like a shriveled up roast with soggy mushy potatoes and carrots soaking in the bottom. Appetizing right?

Enter this amazing new crock pot find- the Slow Cooker Mate. They say the best inventions are those that solve an everyday problem and this is a prime example. This crockpot has two separate parts that all fit together to actually slowly cook a one pot meal- go figure! There is a base (the part with all the controls), a large crockpot insert, a stoneware insert that is divided into two sections, and then the lid. The clencher for me is the fact that you can keep your sides like those potatoes and carrots I mentioned separate from your roast and all it's cooking juices. Brilliant! Now you can actually cook an edible one pot meal!

What else I love:
-The divided stoneware insert is actually big enough to hold a generous amount of potatoes or veggies enough for my family of 4 easily.
- This baby can be thrown in the dishwasher, microwave, and even the oven.
- Even after paying the shipping charge for this bad boy it still rolls in for under $125.00

If you cook a lot of meals in a crockpot, I highly suggest you check this out!
