It’s going on 7:00, and Jackie is just walking in the door. She’s had an exhausting day at work, and after picking up the kids from soccer practice they got stuck in traffic and are just now getting home. The thought of standing on her feet another hour cooking dinner makes her cringe, but as she opens the door she catches a whiff of warm beef stew, and remembers. Dinner’s already taken care of. She threw everything in her Rival crock pot this morning! That simple 1/2-hour of prep has saved her a grueling chore this evening. She smiles, and heads upstairs to change clothes so she can play with the kids a bit before dinner.

Jackie’s story is all too common. With the hectic, rushed lives that everyone leads these days, having a tool to help you take care of cooking dinner is invaluable. That’s where a Rival crock pot comes in handy. Cooking with a slow cooker takes a fraction of the time as on the stovetop, and involves 95% less work. For a busy family they’re an invaluable time saver, and can allow you to spend more time in the evening doing something you want to do, versus something you have to.

Crockpots can give you:

More time for yourself in the evening.
Healthy meals with little advance prep.

Tasty dinners. Recipes are usually very simple and almost impossible to mess up!

Entertaining using your slow cooker makes cleanup a breeze…

Leaving you free to relax after your guests are gone!

Many people refrain from entertaining with friends at home these days because it’s just so much work.  Cooking for all those people can be extremely time consuming, and the dishes to be washed afterwards makes it seem like more trouble than it’s worth.  Using a crock pot to do the cooking for you, however, can take a lot of the stress of entertaining away.

Think about it.  What if you could have your friends over for a relaxing dinner, and only spend half an hour in the kitchen prepping that morning?  You could be visiting with them over drinks instead of slaving over a hot stove.  Rival slow cookers offer a long list of time saving advantages, one of which is enabling you to spend more time with your dinner guests instead of being stuck in the kitchen.  And what’s even better is that, at the end of the night, there’s only the ceramic pot to wash.  No piles of dirty pots and pans for your dinner party!  You can kick your heels off and relax.

People all over the world are rediscovering the amazing benefits of cooking with crock pots.  They use very little electricity to operate, and are safe to leave on during the day.  Wouldn’t it be nice to invite friends over for dinner Friday night, and have it already cooked when you walk in the door?  All you’d have to do is pop the wine open and welcome them inside.  Effortless and simple entertaining.
