Thousands of Amazon Shoppers Swear This Crock-Pot Is the Secret to Fuss-Free Dinners
It's on sale for just $30.
Slow cookers make easy weeknight dinners all year long—just throw a bunch of ingredients into a pot in the morning, then return to a warm, perfectly cooked meal hours later—but we feel the appliances really shine in the dark days of winter. After all, frigid temperatures have us craving substantial stews, fork-tender braises, and warming curries, while shorter days make it feel like we have less time to cook.
And if you don't have a slow cooker yet, now's the best time to snag one of your own: Crock-Pot's popular Cook and Carry Manual Slow Cooker is an impressive 41% off on Amazon.
The original slow cooker brand, Crock-Pot is an industry leader in a very competitive field. Its straightforward design excels with braising, steaming, and poaching while using less energy than a stove or oven. This spacious 7-quart model features manual low and high settings for flexible cooking times, while a warming option keeps food at the perfect serving temperature for as long as you need. Additionally, the Cook and Carry is designed with a user-friendly locking lid complete with a gasket for extra seal (and less chance of a mess) while traveling.

The appliance is one of Amazon's best-selling slow cookers, earning more than 3,200 five-star reviews. Users rave about how easy it is to use and clean the slow cooker, saying it's an effortless way to get dinner on the table.
"We use it all the time for beans, chili, and shredded meats," a shopper wrote. "I love the convenience of throwing dinner in, leaving for the day, and coming home to a meal. The removable stoneware makes cleanup easy. It is a large capacity, but great for recipes with a lot of ingredients...and leftovers!"
Even users who claim to own several slow cookers said this model's locking lid makes it a cut above the rest.
"I've got four slow cookers," a reviewer shared. "If I were told I could only keep one, it would be this one. It's easy to clean and it looks so nice I can just set it on the table and serve directly from it. But the best part is the lid that locks down for traveling. Between church dinners and special occasions at work when everybody brings something, this Crock-Pot makes short work of transporting it in the car."
And best of all? Right now, the Crock-Pot Cook and Carry is marked from $50 to just $30. If you're looking for an affordable weeknight dinner hero, it's the ideal moment. Hurry and add it to your cart now before the price jumps back up.
