Crock-Pot 20 oz. Lunch Crock Food Warmer w/ 2 Containers
Works Well, Some Reservations
The concept of this compact crockpot heating up a lunch is great and works as described. Plus side: compact, heats well. Down side: individual pots are aluminum which is not healthy for food. I had thought that the containers were stainless steel, although there was no indication in the description to mislead me here. I had read it in a similar listing on Amazon (which turned out to be incorrect).
I am repurposing it for something else and happened to have a ceramic pot that fits fairly well in the heating unit.
Overall I like the compact design and concept. If the pots were stainless steel I would give this a 5.
Have only used this once. While I don't work any longer, I bought this as a way of using up leftovers. I'm single and still like to cook. Now I can portion out a serving or two for reheating later in the week. It heats nicely without over-cooking the food.
Does exactly what it says it will do - and then some. Tonight I brought soup to work with me that I had stored in the fridge in one of the containers. In less than 2 hours the soup went from refridgerator cold to piping hot. I keep this right on my desk - no tell tale food smell. Cleans up quickly. Holds a goodly amount of food. Would make a great gift for anyone who eats on the run.
It is perfect!!!!
I absolutely LOVE this. It works wonderfully. I pack my food the night before and put the container in the fridge. In the morning I take the container out of the fridge and put it inside the warmer and I'm ready to go. I get to work and plug it in and by lunchtime it is piping hot and ready. It saves time, money and I can enjoy every minute of my lunch hour. It does hold quite a bit of food. I love the fact that you don't smell the food cooking and that the plug wraps around and snaps in on the bottom. Great job! I'm getting another one for the hubby.
Bought this about a year ago at the big box store and have used it everyday since. Yes I paid more for it and didn't get the extra insert. This is an amazing bargain! I have since gone to Crock Pot and bought additional inserts. This works great. I cook meals and put the leftovers in the frig. I got one of these for my husband also. In the morning he just grabs a crock and heads to work. I work 3rd shift so I grab an insert on the way out the door too. Plug this in when I get to work and it is ready and hot when I get a chance to eat. Husband thinks this is the best thing since home made bread. He is GTD a hot meal even on the days I don't get up to cook a homemade meal. Even bought one for my son-in-law to take to work. Got to get him another one cause my daughter claimed his. Ordering another one from the Q. Please get in the fun colors again! Great purchase.
AN INSTANT CULT CLASSIC FOODIE ITEM !!!!
GREAT THINGS do come in small packages! SIMPLE-A NO BRAINER-GENIUS. Listen to the raves of the QVC customers! I clean hi-rise office buildings on the midnight shift. Last night, I had beef stew for my lunch. It was hot. All I did was plug it in and go to my work area. Me and my buddy watch movies during our lunch break. He wants me to order one for him. I can't because it's sold out. I;m not surprised. Crock Pot is rocking the house with this item.
Best decision I've made for lunch box choice! Portion control and comfort food!
Food gets put in the night before, all I do is pack it and take it to work.
Come lunch time, I've got a hot meal right from my kitchen to my work desk.
Please remember that the grey inner lid stays on while your food stays warm.
When you twist open your top lid you'll find that the inner grey lid has popped open, its to say that your food is now ready to eat. Hope you enjoy this great product!
Gifted one to my boss and one for me, we truly enjoy using it!
I have used this at the workplace and everyone loves the crockpot! This crockpot meets all expectations. No more microwave, no more waiting in line at work to use the microwave. With the economy as it is this saves money not going out for lunch. Plus you keep all the nutrients that the microwave takes. Awesome product.
I dont like to use the microwave if I dont have to. These are ingenious!!!! Please, please, please restock for those of us who missed out.......I WANT SEVERAL OF THESE....YESTERDAY!
Thank you QVC for your commitment to your loyal customers!
THIS IS A KITCHEN MUST HAVE
I have used my crock pot everyday since it arrived.
I have put frozen chile in it.
When I cook dinner I put the left overs in the pots. They are ready to heat.
This product is well worth the money. I will be buying more of them for gifts.
I Love This Crock!!!
This is without a doubt one of my best QVC purchases. It does exactly what they said it would. I plug it in an hour before I want to eat and it is the perfect temperature when I'm ready for lunch. I've taken soups and stews and even spaghetti and meatballs. Don't hesitate to buy this great little crock.
Awesome lil Croc Pot!
I Plug it in Around 8:30 am when I get to work. By noon, it's good to go. Warmed leftover spaghetti, soups, chicken and more. Maybe they'll make one that's wider and lower in height. That would be awesome. Love mine. Hope to get another one when it comes back in stock.
