I really dig the word versatility. For one, it’s a fun word to say. For two, if it’s an adjective that can be applied to a cooking appliance, I am all about it.

When West Bend Kitchen Appliances gave me an opportunity to give their 6 Qt. Oval Versatility™ Slow Cooker, I was pretty stoked. I love a meal that lends itself to slow cooking, like my Guinness beef stew.

This slow cooker is the perfect size for a crowd, or dinner with leftovers for lunch the next day if it’s just Brian and me. It holds a whole chicken or ham, so it’s made its appearance just in time for a perfect Easter meal.

It’s really quite spectacular how you can move the cooker itself from its base to the oven, the fridge, the freezer.. (remember that buzz word versatility?) Because the pot is stand-alone with a griddle base, you’re not dealing with cumbersome ceramic bowls that reach the temperature of the sun and can’t be removed for days. The handles are like real handles, not just indentations formed into ceramic that are hard to get a grip on even when they aren’t the temperature of the sun.

And yes, I did say “griddle base”. That means that you really get two appliances in one here – a slow cooker and a plug in mini griddle with which to cook all your favorite breakfast foods; eggs, bacon, pancakes, OR the perfect grilled cheese to serve along side a steaming bowl of that Guinness stew. Oh and did I mention this hot little number is dishwasher safe? My favorite two word combination ever!

Because West Bend Kitchen Appliances loves you and wants you to be happy, they’re offering the 6 Qt. Oval Versatility™ Slow Cooker to TWO lucky souls in the MBA crowd. Pretty awesome, right?
