I am a brand Ambassador for Hamilton Beach. I have received a slow cooker as compensation for this post, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Do you have a favorite kitchen appliance?

My stand mixer gets a workout, and I love and appreciate how hard it works. But I get absolutely giddy when it’s time to break out my slow cooker. I’d probably use it all year, but my husband has a major man crush on his grill. SO, we compromise. He gets spring and summer, and Saturdays during the fall and winter for the grill, and I get the rest to roast and slow cook.

Nothing makes me happier than to have dinner ready first thing in the morning, although my kids don’t love the smell of onions and garlic with their pancakes.

Soup and chili are what you will usually find in my slow cooker, and this buffalo chicken chili is a new family favorite. We like it spicy, but you can reduce the hot sauce added. I like to use 1/4 cup for cooking and then serve extra sauce at the table. I have made it using 1/2 cup, and while I and and I loved it the kids were not as enthusiastic.

Served with jalapeno cornbread, this chili  is football food done right for this Buffalo girl.

The Hamilton Beach Set & Forget® is my new favorite thing. It really is set and forget. You add the ingredients, set the timer, and the slow cooker automatically shifts to warm when the time is up. I can go about my day, and know that whenever I get home, our meal will be ready to enjoy.

Hamilton Beach has been kind enough to offer a Set & Forget® 6 Qt. Programmable Slow Cooker With Spoon/Lid to one of you as well. To participate in any promotion or program, you must be 18 years or older and reside in the 50 United States or D.C. Hamilton Beach is unable to ship to P.O. Boxes.
