    Thanks for finding the link for us, Tess! icon_smile.gif

    That was a very interesting review. I think she was detailed enough to convince me, if not for Bonnie's having one and telling us she doesn't have to wash between searing and slow cooking.

    Knowing Bonnie as well as I do, and having purchased nearly all the same gadgies, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this one simply on her recommendation.

    Like I said in another post, I wish I had bought this rather than the one I did, although it is very handy. My question is this, I live alone, rarely cook for anyone but myself and am wondering if it would be feasible for one person. Bonnie you have the experience, so let me know.


    Gosh Jac, I'm not sure. I do know that there is just me and DH most days at home and it works for us. That said I do usually make enough to freeze or store left overs for those days when I don't want to make a big meal which is often when I happen to be alone. I know the spagetti I made the full batch (which isn't that big) froze in 1 person servings and then when I wanted to have some just popped it into my handy, dandy lunch box crock, heated and enjoyed.

    I don't know that there's any reason you couldn't cut the serving size down as long as it's enough to cover the bottom but at this point I haven't tried that.

    Thanks Tink, and I have to say when it comes to gadgets, so far I really like this one.

    icon_biggrin.gif I have this crockpot! I received the Ninja 3-1 crockpot for a gift and I have cooked at least 3 meals a week in it since. I thought the spaghetti recipe was insane when I saw it on the informercial but it does work! I absolutely love it! I bought my daughter and daughter in law one!

    I so agree with you, one of the first things I made was the spagetti as I could not believe it would work, but it DID and what a time saver. Thinking I've got to get my DD one too.

    I think I started feeling sorry for myself this past week, you know I am having to eat, sleep and spend the day in my recliner now, and I saw it as a today's special value on qvc and I ordered it. Can't wait for it to get here and for me to be able to use it.

    Sounds like you're about due for a little retail therapy, Jacqueline. We all get down sometimes, and you deserve a little pick-me-up. icon_smile.gif
    If it helps any, I really do know what you're going through. It was short-term, but after one of my surgeries I lived in a fancy, reclining lawn chair beside my bed. I spent 24 hours a day in it for 2 weeks (except bathroom breaks, of course), and it was very depressing.
    Hang in there, friend. We're all thinking of you. grouphug.gif

    And enjoy your awesome new gadget! icon_biggrin.gif

    There is a new product that looks to be the slow cooker without the oven, but it has a high heat for searing - this would avoid having to pull out the skillet to brown meat, saute onions, whatever.

    I saw it at Walmart. $89

    Nice find, and a great price. I found a cook book at Target specially for the Ninja Crockpot and thinking about posting some of the recipes for those that want to give it a try.

    Still have to go through it, but betting there are some good ones.

    I compared the two slow cookers last time I was at Target. I decided that if I was gonna put out the money, I was gonna get the fully-loaded model. icon_lol.gif
    I would probably use it most for stove-top browning and then slow cooking, but I really liked having the oven option. icon_smile.gif

    Since DD has returned to school full time I've been trying to help out by cooking and freezing meals she can have on hand for her and the boys on nights she is out late (which is almost all of them) I've been using this a lot and enjoying it so much. An added bonus is this has to be the easiest clean up of any gadgie I've had so far.

    I've used the stove top setting, sear and slow cooker setting and later today will try the steam when I make Maple Bacon Corn muffins. So far everything is working great and I've even posted the Spaghetti and meatball recipe - it's not the best spaghetti I've ever made, but it's sure the easiest and it's very acceptable for the kids and even adults.

    Hope everyone else that has one is enjoying their's too. icon_cool.gif

    That might have just sold it for me. Seriously, one-pot cooking is what it's all about. Not creating a big pile of dishes to make just the main dish is a huge bonus. I'm pretty certain this will be my next gadget purchase, thanks to your experiences, Bon-Bon. icon_biggrin.gif

    You won't be sorry Tink, I have to tell you this is one of my all time favs and I've tried a BUNCH. Used the steamer and made some Bacon-Maple Corn Muffins and they turned out so moist and wonderful I was thrilled.

    The only down side for some might be that you can only make 6 regular sized muffins at a time in it - but for me and my small family that's about perfect. I froze them anyways as taking them to the DGSs but did defrost one and warm and it was really good.

    Yeah, I can see the small quantity being an issue for some, but if I needed to make muffins for more than just a side at the family meal, or a snack, I wouldn't be using the crock pot. I'd be baking them like normal. So, when I really think about it, I don't think this would be a problem.

    It not a problem for me, and if I really needed more could just do 2 batches as it's so fast. And the steam baking makes them so soft and moist, it makes any inconveniences with portion worth it in my book. icon_lol.gif
