What is it
The Crock-Pot Programmable 4-Qt, Oval Slow Cooker is one top-rated pick that’s currently on sale for just $35, down from its original price of $46. Designed with programmable cook settings, you can set it around your schedule with cook times that range from four to 10 hours at a time.
Its four-quart capacity easily serves up to four people, making this Crock-Pot a convenient choice for mealtimes and creating healthy home-cooked recipes. While cook time is a breeze with this kitchen must-have, so is cleanup thanks to its dishwasher-safe lid and stoneware interior, which also doubles as a serving dish for less mess.
Why shoppers love it
With a 4.5-star rating from hundreds of customer reviews, this Crock-Pot has been praised for its ease of use, low maintenance cleanup and top notch gift-ability.
“This slow cooker is VERY easy to use. The programmable aspect is basically press on a few buttons, depending on what you are cooking and let it do its work,” shared one five-star reviewer. “I have already made a chili, two chicken recipes and oatmeal and all of these dishes were perfectly and evenly cooked and came out tasting delicious.”
“Love this cooking appliance. Easy to set up and makes for many delicious cooking opportunities, especially for people on the go,” added another. “This Crock-Pot is easy to clean and makes perfect meals, every time. Well worth the price.”
While the Crock-Pot Programmable 4-Qt, Oval Slow Cooker has earned many rave reviews from fans, others were disappointed that it only has the four time settings, which leaves less room to customize how long to cook your recipes.
“I've been using this crock pot for about a year now and I find it so convenient when you don't want to stand in front of a stove. It's just me and my husband so the size is perfect for us,” reads one review. “The only thing is I just wish it had more time settings. Other than that it has been working great for me. Also easy to clean too.”
At just $35 on sale, this Crock-Pot is a total bargain for the price. That said, it is on the smaller side compared to other models, so if you’re looking to feed a crowd you may want to opt for another version.
However, if you’re looking to upgrade your kitchen with an easy to use and easy to clean appliance that delivers delicious meals, add this Crock-Pot to your cart.
