Friday Favorites | Fall For The Crock

It’s Friday: Yay! It’s Fall: Yay! Fall weather is starting to sweep the country and women everywhere are starting to keep their scarves and Uggs on bottom shelves. But on Friday, we gab about something we love, which you should also keep on the bottom shelf this season.

Not all fall season items worth getting excited about are clothes. So, while this isn’t something you wear, it is something you should register for. Brides, pick up the scanner gun at your favorite kitchen-ware store and cross your fingers that you unwrap one of these beauties for a wedding present.

Every Fall, we fall in love…with our Crock-Pots! While this more-than-helpful kitchen accessory is multi-seasonal, the idea of home-cooked soup, fall-apart brisket, and apple cider with mulling spices is so pleasing to the nose and heart. It makes us all warm and fuzzy inside.

Take it from The Yentas, this consumer report could not be more favorable! There’s nothing we love more than tossing ingredients into the pot, plugging in, and flipping the switch. Hours later, you have a delicious meal with deliciously little work behind it. Also, we love the Crock-Pot because you can cook additional side dishes on the stove top or in the oven without losing space, as the Crock-Pot only requires a square foot of your counter top. The Crock-Pot brand of slow cookers have been around forever. Our moms and grandmas have proudly owned these, so we know we can trust the reputation that precedes them.
