Crated Cooker

I use a clean milk crate to transport my slow cooker to a potluck. I line the crate with a towel, take the cover off the slow cooker and put foil over it. I set the cooker in the crate with my serving utensil. The crate keeps the pot from tipping and catches any drips. And when I leave, I don't have to look for my lid! —Helen Phillips, Horseheads, New York
