    Has anyone seen the ads on TV for the Ninja Crock Pot - what do you all think. I need to replace mine at home (brought the last one here to Trini so none at home) I have loved my Cuisnart - but this looks interesting and I really like my Ninja Blender

    I am definitely intrigued after watching the video and reading Stephanie's review at the "A Year of Slow Cooking" blog.

    What really inspires me is that you can brown in it first, like a stove top! No more arguing with myself that I really should brown the roast on the stove first, cause I know the color is more appetizing. But then just throwing it in the crock pot raw, because if I'm gonna dirty the dutch oven to brown it, I might as well just cook it on the stove. Right?

    This crock pot makes me rethink my position on not needing another one. This would make 5 or 6 functioning crock pot/slow cookers. Ridiculous... but I know I'm not alone in that regard. icon_lol.gif

    I like it and would/will definitely buy it.
    I don't have a Ninja blender, but everyone I've talked to that does have one loves it. So I think that says a lot for the product quality.

    I have the blender, even bought one for DD for her b-day this year and love it, that's why I'm looking at the crockpot. That browning feature really has me hooked and the the steamer is kind of interesting too. A bit pricey - but then it does a LOT.

    Yeah, exactly! My first impression was, "$200 bucks for a crock pot?!".

    But after seeing what it can do, I started to think it's not a bad price. I mean, just not having to dirty a pan on the stove before I crock cook, is worth it to me, but to be able to use it like an oven too? Especially during summer months, and now when dinner is usually just DD and myself. It would be nice to make it all in one pot instead of messing up the kitchen for one and a 1/8 servings. icon_lol.gif

    That's what I was thinking - I really hate browning meat before it goes in - and often will talk myself into not doing it but I KNOW it's better browned first. I really do think it would take the place of a lot of extra work and the oven part REALLY throws it over the top. So thinking I just might get it for myself for an early Christmas -Oh WAIT!!! Just got a great idea - DH's b-ay is this weekend, wouldn't he just LOVE it. rotfl.gif he's never even used the old one unless I put it in and ask him to stir it icon_rolleyes.gif

    Yes, he'll definitely love it. icon_wink.gif

    I've been talking this one up to DH too. He's like, "You really need another crock pot?!" But, gadget junkie he is, he could see the benefit of being able to brown in it.
    So, we'll see if Santa brings me one this year. Poor DH gets hammered by friends for getting me kitchen appliances and vacuums for birthday, mother's day, Christmas, but I totally love it! I'm allergic to flowers for one, but for two, I can't keep anything from nature alive, so they just die. He doesn't throw that fact in my face by sending flowers, and at least I can keep the house clean or family fed with the stuff he wraps up for me. icon_smile.gif

    I'm hoping for a Ninja crock pot!

    You and me both Tink; I think it's got so many awesome functions - at this point DH is just shaking his head at me - but I'm pretty good at perserving until I find a reason to get it.

    Hey what was the name of that small grow pot you found?? I'm wanting to order it to bring over here for fresh basil but can't remember or find it.

    I'm always asking DH for gadgets for the house, specially the kitchen and everyone gives him a hard time about it - but it's what I love - better that than some ceramic frog or something which is what he'd probably pick out if left to his own. Sooooo glad that over the years he's started asking me - "OK, what do you want"

    Bonnie, check out this crock pot from QVC. I bought it because it is big enough for me to cook a whole chicken in. You can brown in the pan on the stove top and you can even use the bottom for a griddle.

    Just as an update, I just finished ordering it to be delivered for my Christmas present and can't wait to give it a try. Now I just need to look for my next great gadget icon_biggrin.gif Thinking a good food processor or rice cooker icon_rolleyes.gif

    I purchased the ninja cooker last week and I have used it almost every night to give a good test run, I made homemade pasta sauce, excellent!! pork roast with apples and sweet potatoes, seasoned with apple pie spice. excellent!! lemon chicken with asparagus and couscous ,excellent!! pork cutlets with mushrooms and sliced potatoes in a thyme sauce, excellent!! I love the fact that I can sear the meat and veggies first, throw in some broth then add rice, couscous, pasta, ect, and in no time I have dinner with out all the mess. Oh yes, I also steamed some mussels with white wine, garlic, chicken broth, it was the best I ever made. I'm enjoying experimenting with my new ninja cooker. I can't imagine baking cake ect in it, but then it's not what I bought it for. I think tonight I'm going to try some cabbage rolls;-)

    Oh Heidi, so glad to hear it works so well; I was really nervous when I saw the price but think it's going to be a real favorite with it's abilities - I'm even eager to at least try the cake - says they are really moist with all the steam; so we'll see. But the idea of the mussels is great, DH would love that.
