    A slowcooker had been such a life-saver for me that I bought a second one. A fancy one that you can use to saute/brown meat/chicken right there without having to transfer and clean another pan. Now I have both of them going at the same time!

    I was also going to say - Instant Pot ! I don't think I will ever use our Crock Pot again.

    Last week I made lamb chops and whole potatoes from raw in under an hour. Seared the chops on saute, took them out, added water, butter and seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary, parsley and garam masala) threw the whole potatoes in, put the chops on top of the potatoes, and used the stew program. The meat was falling off and the potatoes were perfect. It was so easy. I do not like to cook, and I don't like to babysit food on the stove. And I am not good at planning ahead for meals. The Instant Pot is a dream come true for me. It will pay for itself in meals we eat at home instead of out. I can't wait to make tons of soups and stews this winter.
