This month, we’re showcasing one of our most beloved kitchen appliances: the slow cooker. We know slow cookers are invaluable tools in many kitchens, and they are widely popular. With the weather getting cooler and the days getting shorter, there’s nothing better than walking in the door to a hot, home cooked meal after a long day. On Facebook, we’re highlighting our top 25 slow cooker recipes and asking you to vote on the “best of the best.” And while you’re there, enter to win one of five Intellitime™ slow cookers. Here on the blog, we’re giving away a slow cooker gift basket every week! (Scroll down to enter our first slow cooker giveaway!)

Enter our Facebook Contest.

One thing we love about small slow cookers is their versatility. They are perfect for dips, sauces, appetizers or even as a hostess gift. Try using a 3-quart slow cooker as the gift basket and fill it with your favorite wine, a cheese grater and gourmet tomato sauce for an easy Italian-themed present. Need a teacher gift or something for a food friend for the holidays? Try a slow cooker gift basket filled with exotic spices and an Indian cookbook. It’s sure to delight any home cook. We will be giving away four amazing gift baskets, pictured below, each week in October. Just enter on Monday and we will announce a winner each Friday.

Don’t forget to enter our Best of the Best Slow Cooker Recipes contest on Facebook for a chance to win one of 5 IntelliTime™ 6 Quart Slow Cookers!

This week’s giveaway is for a 3 Quart Swirl Slow Cooker (33138) filled with “Fresh from the Market” prizes, including a cookbook, herb saver, citrus squeezer and much more.
