Colorful slow cookers make splash at potlucks

The Proctor Silex Citrus Colors 1.5 Quart Slow Cookers features bright colors and are easily transported.

Colorful and convenient. Proctor Silex

Everybody appreciates a home-cooked meal. Oddly enough, often that home-cooked meal is had away from home. At parties, the standout on the spread is always, without exception, the homemade food. People gather around the food, tasting it, asking questions about what's in it, or simply saying how delicious it is--hopefully. Naturally, some food will travel better than others, but no matter if you are making chili or dip, you are going to need a way to get it to the party.

Doubling as a serving dish and a cooker, Proctor Silex's Citrus Colors 1.5 Quart Slow Cookers come in a four brightly-colored finishes. The festive appliances are available in Pomegranate Red, Tangelo Orange, Lemon Yellow, or Lime Green and have a fun recipe-name holder. The slow cookers are easily transportable thanks to a rubber seal and a lid strap to help keep it in place.

You can make meals as easy with the colorful cooker as you can with any other slow cooker. You choose from the High or Low setting, and flip the front-mounted switch to Keep Warm when finished with the cooking. For about $14.99 each, the color-coordinated slow cookers are affordable enough to leave as a thoughtful gift to the hosts. And best of all--if you leave the slow cooker as a gift or not--the removable oval stoneware and lid are dishwasher safe.
