A crock pot in every kitchen?

A recent post by Cooking With Carrie has a recipe for Crock-Pot Chicken. As she notes, “this is by far one of the easiest dinners ever! It takes 10 minutes in the morning to throw everything in and by dinner time it’s ready to go.”

Her post strikes me as just the latest sign that one-pot meals are the perfect combination of convenience and multi-tasking when a lot of people don’t have time to cook.

It also reminds me of when rice cookers were going to be the next big

kitchen innovation — I received four as college graduation gifts.

While I no longer have a rice cooker, perhaps it’s time I update my

view of slow cookers as something for merely warming meat balls or

heating up hot dogs.
