Crock-Pot does double duty

The Crock-Pot Duo Cook and Server is perfect for parties or the undecided.

A crowd pleaser. Bed Bath & Beyond

It takes a real commitment to decide on a slow-cooked meal. Pot roast, chili, stews, braised short ribs: all of these slow cooker meals require lots of cooking time. When the ingredients are in the pot, there's not much you can do to change your mind. Meals made in a slow cooker truly are set-it-and-forget-it-type meals. Once it gets going, there's no turning back.

The Crock-Pot Duo Cook and Server does double duty in more ways than one. First, the appliance combines two cooking vessels along with an attractive service for convenient tableside dining. Second, there are two slow cookers in one package. Operating with independent controls, each crock holds 2.5 quarts of your (two) favorite slow-cooked meals. All the standard amenities one would expect are present: choose from high, low, and warm for cooking, and the stoneware crocks and lids are dishwasher safe.

The ability to cook, warm and serve with this one appliance is handy for get-togethers and parties. For the perpetually undecided, the double duty nature of this double barreled makes perfect sense. No matter if you need to please a crowd or simply prepare in advance for fleeting cravings, this slow cooker duo has you covered.
