The beach home, the cabin, the lake house - wherever it is you go to get a little away time, it's not a true vacation home without a slow cooker. You only get a few precious days out of the year to kick back and relax in your little slice of paradise, and bringing a Crock-Pot® Digital Slow Cooker along with you ensures that you won't be wasting a single precious moment.

Before you pack up the car and your suitcase, make sure you remember all the reasons you brought the slow cooker along, too.

Take a Vacation From the Stove
You didn't set off for the summer home to slave over a hot oven. Then again, you can't just order takeout every night. 

That's where the slow cooker comes in handy. Cooking is as simple as loading up your ingredients and turning a dial. Prep that dish early in the day, and you'll be savoring a delicious dinner that same night. There's no stress, no fuss but all the flavor of a painstakingly prepared entree. 

That goes double if you're a Crock-Pot® Cuisine subscriber. Those dinners have already been expertly organized for you. Just take a few meal ingredient kits along, and you'll already have a few dinner dishes ready for the slow cooker, which means less time shopping and more time actually vacationing.

Relax While you Cook
It's not all about getting out from behind the stovetop either. Not only is eating made simple with a slow cooker, it frees up all that time you would normally spend in the kitchen. After prepping your meal and setting the temperature, you're free to go about your day while your food is being made. You can't say the same about the oven or those stove burners. 

Now, you can set your slow cooker to high and head down to the beach to lay out in the sun without any worries. Pat yourself on the back because you just maximized your relaxation time and got rid of one more item on your to-do list.

Less time in the kitchen means more time relaxing and doing what you want.Less time in the kitchen means more time relaxing and doing what you want.

Send Your Taste Buds on a Vacation
Is it fate or just good fortune that some of your favorite meals are the best slow cooker recipes? Make pulled pork for quick lunch sandwiches, chili for a hearty flavorful dinner and if you really want to wake up on the right side of the bed, prepare a tasty slow cooked breakfast casserole with eggs, ham, spinach and a little Greek yogurt.

There are thousands of recipes that can be gradually simmered to perfection using a slow cooker.  Nothing will help you enjoy your home away from home more than a mouth watering meal that was a cinch to make.
