About a month back, CSN offered to let me do a product review for them. I chose a few items from their MASSIVE store listing and ordered them right up!
I found the CSN website to be very easy to use. My order was shipped almost immediately and arrived within days.
I ordered the Hamilton Beach Stay or Go 4 Qt. Slow Cooker and have been loving it. It is smaller than the slow cooker I already had, so it is much more practical for things like soups or hot dips. I have used it several times already on lazy days. I just throw a slow cooker liner (best invention ever) in there, add the ingredients for an easy meal and forget about it!
I haven't had reason to transport the slow cooker anywhere yet, but the ingenious way the lid latches onto the base should make going to potlucks much less stressful. The latches also keep the steam in the slow cooker, where my other slow cooker loses some moisture out of the top as it cooks.
My only beef with this slow cooker is that there is no "on" light to let you know it is running like it should. My tired mommy brain got everything ready to go and switched the knob to "high," only to realize a few minutes later that I hadn't plugged the thing into the wall yet. Whoops.
I also received a Paderno Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat. I have been wanting one of these for a long time. I have used it in the oven to make dinner clean-up easier, and I also used it when I made chocolate-dipped pretzels for my son's birthday party. The mat held up beautifully in both the oven and the fridge.
Since I love ya, I ordered an extra baking mat for one lucky reader as my Christmas present to you!
