GIVEAWAY & Review : Celebrate Crock-tober with a brand new Crock-Pot!


It's that time of year. Crock-tober! When fall begins and you start wanting savory, comforting home-cooked meals. And one way to make those meals super easily is with your slow cooker! 

A few months ago a special friend helped me contact the folks at Crock-Pot because I hoped that they might be willing to work with me to provide some special giveaways for you, my dear readers! Especially since I used Crock-Pots extensively through the recipe testing for my new book

It wasn't actually because I loved the company at the time, it's simply that Crock-Pot was the brand of slow cookers I had in my kitchen... and after all that testing... I realized just how much I love these simple machines. The Crock-Pot brand is known for their high quality slow cookers and they like to call themselves, "The Original Slow Cooker." Which is fine by me considering I own 5 of them!  

My favorite size is actually a very simple, medium-sized 3.5 - 4 quart slow cooker. It works best for most of the items I make since I'm only cooking for two people (with the hopes of leftovers!)

Crock-Pot #1 - a 6-qt. Cook & Carry Slow Cooker
Retail Price: $39.99

After speaking with a Crock-Pot representative, they graciously offered to send me two slow cookers to test myself and review... ALONG WITH two brand new slow cookers to giveaway! I was thrilled at the offer... because you can never have TOO many slow cookers right?

The first one I tested was the 6 quart Cook & Carry manual slow cooker. A manual slow cooker is simply a slow cooker with a manual dial. It's very basic and the knob is the only thing you have to worry about setting. 

A few functions of this slow cooker include: 
  • 6 quart capacity
  • removable oval stoneware
  • four convenient manual temperature settings
  • the stoneware AND lid is dishwasher-safe (I really need a dishwasher!)
  • several naturally gluten-free recipes are included in the instruction manual
  • this model has a lid-mounted locking system for portability AND a gasket lid to keep the unit sealed to prevent spilling. 


This was my favorite of the two slow cookers.  One thing I REALLY loved about this new model is that the oval base of the slow cooker and the stoneware insert is wider than my old one. In my opinion, the wider the base of your slow cooker, the more versatile it can be. For instance I could make bread with this slow cooker because the base is wide enough to hold a small loaf pan. 

Another big plus? When the base is wider, you have MUCH more room to do big meals like roast a whole chicken or do a large beef or pork roast with plenty of room to spare for adding extra veggies or sauce, or if you want to make a big pot of soup, etc... 

I also loved the color of this slow cooker. I realize color has nothing to do with function... but when things are pretty it's not only nice to display in the kitchen but it's fun to take other places to show off! The red is a very metallic, deep red which went beautifully with my black kitchen appliances. (And doesn't food that is presented in a beautiful dish/carrier taste better anyway?) 

One more bonus: fantastic carrying handles! Big, wide handles so the slow cooker can be picked up easily and transported without worry of dropping it due to the handles being too small or getting too hot. My husband often complains about how small the handles are on a few of my smaller slow cookers, so he was very impressed his hands fit this model perfectly. 

***************

Crock-Pot #2 - 7-qt. Smart-Pot Slow Cooker
Retail Price: $49.99

Slow cooker number 2 that we are giving away and that I tried was a 7-quart Smart-Pot Slow Cooker (winners may receive EITHER a 6 or 7 quart version of this model). This slow cooker is a little bit larger than the Cook & Carry and functions a little bit differently. 

A few functions that this slow cooker includes are: 
  • 6 or 7-quart capacity
  • removable oval stoneware
  • four convenient timer settings
  • automatically shifts to warm when cooking is done
  • stainless-steel finish
  • dishwasher safe stoneware & lid
  • several naturally gluten-free recipes are included in the instruction manual


This slow cooker is the largest one I have and it's perfect for roasting a large chicken, a Christmas ham, and making a loaf of gluten-free bread (with wiggle room!) It's also great for cooking a HUGE pot of pinto beans or green beans, or soup! This newer model also contains the wider base than my older slow cookers and of course the awesome digital time settings. My favorite thing about the digital time settings is having an indicator light telling you the machine is on!  There have been countless times I've forgotten to turn on my slow cooker and realized 4 hours later nothing was cooking!

This slow cooker doesn't have the cool carry and leak-proof features, but the digital timer is very nice. However if you make a lot of recipes from my cookbook, you'll have to remember to set your own timer because MOST of my recipes cook for 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low... I feel the traditional 4/6 hour HIGH settings and 8/10 hour LOW settings are WAY too long for most slow cooker recipes... because newer slow cookers cook hotter than old ones due to government food safety regulations, you don't need to cook foods as long in nearly ANY newer slow cooker.

Both of these slow cookers worked really well in my opinion on both low, high, and warm settings. To top it all off, both of these models are really beautiful and will match a huge variety of kitchen counters and appliances!

Now for the good stuff! Do you want to win one of these beautiful and functional slow cookers? My giveaways are easy peasy... please read the details below and enter to win! Good Luck!

  4. Hi Carrie,

    I love your site and your great passion for cooking. I am Canadian but have a US postal address too as I live very close to the border. If I am still not eligible that is OK--no problem. I have a Hamilton Beach and I like it but the top moves around and there is a space under the lid and often wonder if that is suppose to be that way but would love to have a newer model.

    Keep up the great work you do.

I forgot to take one of my mom's vintage crock pots from the 70s and 80s with me when I moved out West. It would be great to win one of these lovely slow cookers. I have practiced a vegan diet for almost 10 years and often mix in gluten free meals with the stuff I cook and bake. Thanks for hosting a great giveaway!

  45. I have a crockpot but the plastic lid got dropped and shattered so now I use a corelle dinner plate; functional but not very practical as I can't see what's going on inside and need to use a fork to pry it off. I've been looking at new crock pots but keep coming back the fact that the one I have works, so maybe I don't need to spend money on a new one. However, winning one would easily resolve that problem :)

  82. Carrie,

    Congratulations again! I am so excited for your new cookbook, I have been reading tons of great reviews about it and the post that Jenni just did about the latte looks amazing. I can't wait to give it a try. It is that time of year for crockpot cooking! Especially with us having late nights at school I love the idea of just throwing something in (gluten-free of course) and being able to just eat when I get home from a long day.

Oh...and I am going to Barnes and Noble later today...will I find your new cookbook there? Carrie, I so appreciate all you do for the celiac community. When my husband was diagnosed 10 years ago...I thought the bottom of my world fell out. You see I love to cook and bake and the thought of going gluten free seemed so hopeless to me. But thanks to wonderful and experienced gf cooks like yourself, it has been a very successful venture. My husband is healthy, we eat really well and I can honestly say I am proud of the foods I am able to put on our table.

  100. I'd love to win a crock pot. It seems as if every recipe on Pinterest is for something made in a crock pot. I am trying to move toward the "set it and forget it" crowd, but I find it hard. Maybe if I win, I'll be inspired to try it more. And there's something soothing about sitting down and reading the little booklet that comes with a new appliance. I always get a drink and a snack and settle in...

  106. Thank you for the reviews of the "new" crock pot models. It is always good to read reviews before you purchase items. Also agree that most recipes do not take as long as they used to with older models. sourcerlana@gmail.com - Lana

  107. I have a 13 year old son, which means there is a teen boy appetite that needs constant feeding! A crock pot would give us both a chance to explore new recipes.

  109. Hello! I love that you have created such a wonderful book! I love using my crock pot and converting recipies all the time can be annoying sometimes. But in the end of course it is all worth it! I have a small crock pot and it would be fun to have a bigger one to cook for a bigger crowd. :-) Thanks for all the awesome recipies and drawing you do! Have a fabulous day!! Jenjensan85@gmail.com

  114. Hi I just subscribed to your blog because of your slow cooker knowledge. I could def use another slow cooker. I only have one and am always wishing I had another for a side dish or to have dinner and the next morning's breakfast going simultaneously. Thanks for all you do!

  123. You've been my gluten-free savior for going on 4 years now, and I've sent your info on to anyone needing to go GF. You're seriously awesome, and crockpots TOO? . My timed crockpot recently bit the dust, it was a staple, and that six quart one would just fit the bill! sapphirewinds at comcast dot net

  132. I am soooo looking forward to the Crock Pot recipes/Season and the cooler weather to go with. But i bet it would have helped me to have used a crock pot during the heat waves when no one wanted to get into the kitchen...would love a nice family size crock pot.

  142. I had inherited about 3 crocks, 2 were very old school and one not quite so old that I have been using. The 2 reallly old ones are gone an the one I have cooks at higher temps than what I am used to, coming to a simmer even on low! It hasn't stopped me from crocking though. I am now enthralled with crocking and want to go beyond just dumping a roast in. I am lookong to do some 'double-fisted' crocking now --- hoping to be able to crock the main dish and at the same time, crock a side, or a bread, or a desert and thereby crocking the whole darn meal! I have even started using the crock for batch-prepping! Yep, I have become addicted to crocking. I have also become addicted to Ginger Lemon Girl. One of the few blogs I keep up with.
