Top 5 Best Slow Cookers That Are Better Than All The Rest

Looking for the best crock pot?

I tend to think of seasons in terms of the food we eat and how I prepare meals for my family; it’s either grilling season or slow cooker season. The warmer months of spring and summer are filled with fresh vegetables, salads, and everything and anything on the grill. But the cooler months of fall and winter are filled with soups, casseroles, chili and anything I can dump into my slow cooker. Between the ease of preparing a meal and the all-day smell of comfort food, I highly recommend a quality slow cooker for your kitchen. Whether you are looking to purchase your first slow cooker or upgrade to a newer model, these five are as droolworthy as the food in them.

You can make your own fortune cookies, complete with fortune, with the nifty Fortune Cookie Maker.

Belt-Scooter: Ride It, Then Wear It

It's a belt...no, it's a scooter. Nope. It's both. Corny Superman references aside, the Collapsible Belt-Scooter, designed by Adam Torok, is genius. It provides you with a means of transportation quicker than walking, and when you get where you're going, the scooter transforms into a belt, so you don't have to worry about finding a place to stow it.

Want To Be Able To REALLY See What You Are Eating?
