Our experience: We tested out the lunch crock pot at ShopAtHome.com with a queso party (see our recipe below) and loved it! It’s so easy to use, heats food quickly and is a breeze to clean.
One of our favorite features was the removable (and dishwasher safe) container with a travel lid that seals the food during transit. This allowed us to just bring home the small container, while leaving the rest of the Crock-Pot in the office.
Once we got to the office, we set the removable container in the crockpot, plugged it in, and went about our day. Less than two hours later, aromas of queso filled our office and we were ready to dig in. The queso was perfectly hot, and there was no burning. Cleaning was so easy! We simply removed the container and rinsed it out.
Our experience was fun and easy – something not usually associated with work lunches. It worked flawlessly and we loved the fun colors. Plus, there’s the undeniable “cute” factor of a pint sized crock pot. We can’t wait to use it again and again, for everything from more queso and chilis to soups and leftovers.
