Elaine and I love to take road trips, and while we are out, stop for picnics on-the-go. The @Crockpot Lunch Crock is ideal for carrying and warming leftovers. We plug it into the power outlet in the back of the car and now we no longer have to pack just sandwiches or charcuterie when hitting the road!
The 20oz size is perfect for individual meals, so I can also deliver chili, soup, pasta or even oatmeal to my mom & dad and they can help themselves to a hot meal at their convenience. When mom & dad are done, I just pop the storage container and inner lid into the dishwasher and it’s ready for the next meal delivery or adventure.
Not only is the Crockpot™ Lunch Crock™ Food Warmer convenient, but it is also darn freaking cute! The most difficult part is picking a colour! Check them out for yourself, they are available here on Amazon.
