The cold winter weather makes the prospect of a hot lunch all the more appealing. From stews to soups, stir-fries to casseroles - slow cookers are an invaluable way to prepare healthy and hearty meals.
Crock-Pot is one of the leading brands in the world of slow cookers, and now the iconic brand is making it even easier than ever for people to enjoy a warm, home cooked meal on the go, especially during COVID-19 restrictions, with the Crock-Pot 20 Ounce Lunch Crock Food Warmer.

What is it?
The Crock-Pot 20 Ounce Lunch Crock Food Warmer is a portable way to enjoy your favourite slow cooker recipes.
Each individual size unit doubles as both a lunch tote and a food warmer so that you can heat leftovers, soups and more at your desk or work station. Instead of waiting for access to the communal microwave or toaster oven, which can be next to impossible if your workplace has COVID-19 restrictions in common areas, plug in your Lunch Crock Food Warmer when you arrive to your desk and let your food prepare itself while you work.
Crock-Pot designed their portable unit with a spill-proof lid and removable, dishwasher safe food container that makes clean-up easy and hassle free. The unit remains cool to the touch and features cord storage once you've finished preparing your meal.
What people are saying
The Crock-Pot 20 Ounce unit is the perfect companion for those looking for a more convenient way to enjoy hot meals and at work and boasts an impressive 4.7-star rating on Amazon Canada. The portable lunch warmer has amassed more than 8,300 customer reviews - which definitely helps ease your mind when shopping online.
"The size is just the right portion for a single meal," one shopper wrote. "I can just leave the heater itself at work while just bringing the container home to wash and put a new batch of food in for the next day. I just need to start the machine 30 minutes before my lunch time and I will have a nice hot meal waiting to consume."
Shoppes have also noted that during a time when communal lunch rooms aren't considered safe, an individual-sized food warmer is helpful for those still looking to enjoy a home-cooked meal at work.
"Perfect for in the office! Takes about 45 min or so to get 'hot hot.' Which is excellent, no burning your soup. So nice to have a hot meal at work again since we cannot use the microwaves or appliances anymore due to COVID-19," wrote one reviewer. "No spills either. Would for sure recommend!"
If you're someone who frequently brings a lunch to work, or looking for a way to transport a meal on the go - the Crock-Pot 20 Ounce Lunch Food could be a game-changer.
