Perhaps you’ve already discovered the TRU Dual Crock Buffet Slow Cooker, and you’re already whipping up this flavorful pot roast at the same time as these scalloped taters or this slow-cooked broccoli. But how many times have you wished you could make your slow-cooked meat and sides (or dessert) all at the same time? Would a two-story slow cooker be too much to ask? Well, your wish has been granted.
Oster has come out with a slow cooker that literally levels up your slow-cooking without sacrificing counter space. It’s the Crock-Pot Swing and Serve Slow Cooker, which has a large base crock, atop which are two smaller crocks that take up no counter space when not in use. When it’s time to use them, you simply swing one or both out to the side using the smoothly pivoting arms. Everything is connected by a centralized base that doubles as a utensil caddy. Each of the crocks can be operated independently using its own temperature settings.
“I have been using it almost every day. I love the smaller crocks that I can put my veggies or potatoes and stuffing in,” one reviewer (cclarkacre) said of the Swing and Serve’s usefulness for cooking complete meals. Of course, this two-story slow cooker can also be used for your entertaining needs—to cook and serve three party foods simultaneously, with counter space to spare.
Let us know what you think after you try one of these trios that just beg for a turn in the two-story slow cooker:
- Garden Chicken Cacciatore, Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes, and Slow-Cooked Green Beans
- Slow Cooker Beef Burgundy Beef, Ranch Potatoes, and Slow-Cooker Honey Butter Peas and Carrots
- Savory Mushroom & Herb Pork Roast, Mushroom Rice Pilaf, and since the pork roast is made with carrots and mushrooms, use your third crock pot to make Butterscotch Pears for dessert.
