My slow cooker is one of the hardest working appliances in my kitchen.  It’s such a time saving option for busy weeknights. When it comes to slow cookers, there are many options available – from the basic to the ultra fancy.  My favorite is the Hamilton Beach 33967 Set ‘n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker.  I have had a number of slow cookers over the years and this is by far my favorite.  It’s easy to use and program.  It’s just the right size and it has handy clips that hold the lid on securely while you’re traveling.
