Every year for Thanksgiving we are each assigned a dish to bring for dinner. Most of these dishes require cooking in the oven, but there’s no room next to the turkey! So we usually cook the dishes before we arrive and then heat them up in the microwave one by one before dinner starts. This year I had a better idea – what if we each cook our dishes in the slow cooker and then bring them to dinner and turn the cooker on warm until the turkey is ready. No more cold food or rush to heat all the dishes at once!
I have (2) large slow cookers that I know can be used for some of the bigger dishes like mashed potatoes, but I also have this Triple Slow Cooker that I like to use for side dishes, and it costs less than $25!
Each of the ceramic pots has an individual temperature setting so I can prepare and heat three different dishes all at once. And the ceramic pots and lids are dishwasher-safe.
