Crock-Pot® Lunch Crock® Food Warmer, Blue
Versatile and Economical
My Crock-Pot® Lunch Crock® Food Warmer is so versatile. I love to think up new ways I can use it for lunch at work. It is great for heating up foods such as goulash, chili, stews and soups. Yesterday I used it for heating up a hot dog in water (I cut the hot dog, and roll, in half). Today I am heating up a small pot pie I baked last night. It is so easy to just put in your food, check on it and stir it once in a while, and by lunchtime, it is hot!
I used to buy my lunch every day at work which got very expensive. Since I got my Lunch Crock I have saved so much money! It is a great value to me!

RV Meals for one
This little gem only requires 50 watts of power so it can run from an inverter while driving-meal ready when I hit a rest stop without a restaurant.
Upon arrival at a campground mine gets daily use heating soup, water for tea or coffee, Brussels sprouts and reheating leftovers when I go out to eat.
I solved the on/off switch issue with a plug-in flip switch I bought in the electrical department at WalMart. This is a necessity for me because a disability limits my strength and pulling/pushing on plugs can result in spills or other disasters.

I've had this little gem for two years and it's still keeping my lunch/dinner wonderfully warm. I've even plugged it in at home when I get off work at 10:30 pm so I'll have a nice warm dinner waiting when I get home.
I was carrying it in to work one afternoon last year and a lady in the parking lot asked me what it was and how it worked. She's a caterer and thought that was the greatest idea for providing hot meals for her customers after my showing her my lunch and that it'd be warm and tasty in two hours.
This little crock rocks!

I bought three of these and kept two, one for my husband and one for myself, as well as one for a gift. These are perfect for bringing to work. Unfortunately, there is no setting on them for high/low, so once it is plugged in, it heats up. I thought it would keep my food warm, so I plugged it in for about 6 hours. My food was too hot to eat. I would advise plugging it in only a couple of hours before eating, depending on what you are heating up. I had soup in it both times so far and the lid has worked and I haven't had any spillage in my car when it tipped over. Affordable and very handy. The inner bowl can be washed in the dishwasher too. I love this item. I like how the plug also fits under so you don't have to worry about wrapping it around it and possibly damaging the cord while storing.

cute and handy
this is such a cute item when I show it to people they go "awww". It works very well with two little blips: the rubber cover is hard to get off but when it is heating something up it comes off easily, which is good. And the cord is hard to get back into place in the plug holder in the bottom. it never quite seems to make it around and in. But overall it does what is advertised and is a nice way to have a hot lunch at your desk with your favorite leftovers.

Love Love Love
I have had my little crockpot for a couple of weeks now and have used it almost every day. Love it!! I plug it in when I get to work by 8:00 and by lunch at noon everything is piping hot. Better than having to stand in line for the microwave and my food is evenly heated but not burned as can happen in a microwave.
My friends have made fun of me and my crock-pot obsession but when they see me bring this in they all want to jump onboard the crock-pot band wagon!

Doesn't leak smells
Awesome product. Doesn't smell up the office with food smells which would annoy coworkers. Seems to heat to the perfect temperature whether it's on for almost 4 hours or as little as 2 hours. I add cheese about 20 minutes before lunch and keep it unplugged until lunch. It's small and only takes up the space of an insulated lunch container. The cord wraps in a manner so it looks like a non-electric container (so it doesn't draw attention to itself). The handle is great for carrying, so I usually keep the unit all together and carry it back and forth each day instead of keeping the unit at work and just carrying the removable liner container. The removable container and cover are very easy to hand-wash. It holds the perfect amount of food - enough to make me uncomfortably full (so I don't have to worry about being hungry after lunch).

Perfect for use in truck
This thing has saved me probably over thousand dollars over last year. It's great for heating up cans of soup or leftovers.
When I bought this I was a little worried about the stainless steel liner, I figured it was going to be a royal pain to clean,but cleaning is extremely easy.
I've used this product 6 days a week for a year now only problem I've had is the power cord the shielding is cracking where it goes into the pot
