Monthly Drawing: Hamilton Beach Crockpot $45 Value

. 5 min read

Happy March, everyone!

This giveaway is now closed.

This month I’m giving away something I use in my kitchen all the time: a Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker

— retail value $45.

Crockpots are a fabulous time-saver. You can toss a recipe together and let it slow cook all day or overnight — while you’re out running errands or at work — or in bed sleeping.

Slow cookers are great for meats, soups, stews or pork and beans. You can make the best comfort food in a crockpot.

Slow cooking is also necessary if you want to use cheaper, tougher cuts of meat. According to Wikipedia:

Cheaper cuts of meat with connective tissue and lean muscle fibre are suitable for stewing, and tastier than stews using expensive cuts.

The Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker

is the one I use at home.

The base is stoneware and the top is a tempered-glass lid. I also love it because the lid snaps shut so you don’t end up with a counter splattered with broth. It’s also programmable. You can set it for a specific amount of time, or just let it go indefinitely.

Winning is Fun!

I don’t know about you, but I love to win cool stuff. That’s why I do a monthly drawing on this site — new prizes each and every month. I want to help you win stuff you really need and want. Handy kitchen gadgets and tools that I use myself, cute aprons and pot holders, fancy chef’s knives, as well as books that have changed my life.

Giving away something every single month, gives more of my readers a chance to win more stuff.

I pay for these gifts myself. I’ll choose them, based on your votes on Facebook, and I’ll have them shipped direct to your door.
