Tips for buying a crock pot

When you are in the market for buying a crock pot, you will soon discover there are many different kinds and varieties of slow cookers on the market today. Here are some tips so you can buy the best crock pot for you.

Removeable insert
Some crock pots do not have a removeable insert, meaning you have to handwash it carefully after every use.

Dishwasher safe
If you go for a removeable insert, make sure that the insert is dishwasher safe for quick cleanups. Some momsbudget visitors have said theirs aren't dishwasher safe, although these are likely the least expensive ones on the market.

Automatic switch to keep warm
Some crockpots have a timer on it, meaning at the end of the required cooking time, it will automatically switch to "keep warm" instead of continuing to cook your food. This is a lifesaver if you end up working late or get stuck in traffic.

Size
Is it just for you and a three year old? You might want to go with a smaller crock pot. Family of eight? Go with the largest size you can find! You can also adjust the size depending on if you want to have leftovers to freeze or for next day lunches.
