Equipment Review: Best Slow Cookers ("Crock Pots") & Our Testing Winner
8 Best Slow Cookers You Can Buy On Amazon For Under 0
Best for:Cook time control
Not every recipe cooks perfectly in exactly four, six, or eight hours. That's why this 6-quart one is designed to program cooking times that range from 30 minutes to 10 hours. You can put a party dip in on low for just a couple of hours, or simmer a savory lamb curry for that full 10. Either way, the cooker automatically switches to warm when the timer is up.
Best for: Dips and sauces
This Crock-Pot comes with a 16-ounce "Little Dipper" so you can make a lil' extra sauce on the side—and keep it warm until dinner is ready. Whether your meal's coming with scoops of queso or gravy, you can just remove the stoneware insert and set it on the table for serving. (Are your guests double-dippers? Here's how it can affect your health.)
Best for:Ingredient prep
Many slow cooker recipes call for browning the meat before you set it and forget it, like ground beef for chili and beef cubes for stew. That's because the searing of the meat makes the dish more flavorful in the end. This 4-quart cooker has a browning option so you can ditch the extra dishes. You can also steam and sauté veggies in it—no stove required.

Best for:Small spaces
Have a teeny-tiny kitchen but still want to channel your inner Rachael Ray? This super-affordable 1.5-quart option has your name on it. It's equipped with the basic low, high, and warm settings, and it's so tiny you can leave it out on a counter or easily stash it in a cabinet. Plus, the pot and lid are conveniently dishwasher safe. (Here are 7 simple hacks to stretch your groceries further—and eat better for less.)
Best for: Tailgating
Here's another one for hungry sports fans. It's a basic slow cooker, but the official NFL designs show off where your loyalty lies as you dig into those smoky baked beans on game day. Choose from 32 available NFL teams, and maybe tell rival fans to get their grub elsewhere. (Avoid weekend weight gain at football games with these tips.)
Best for:Soups and stews
When you're at work, you can't stir your chili as often as the recipe says. To solve that problem, the Crock-Pot creators came up with an auto-stirring system that mixes after two hours, and then again every 30 minutes, so your dish cooks evenly with flavors throughout. You get a choice of two stirring paddles (general-purpose or stew paddle) that attach to the lid. Even better, the constant stirring keeps food from building up on the sides, making cleanupwayeasier.
