Slow cooking is a year-round activity. From meatballs and hearty stews in the fall and winter to lighter fare more appropriate to spring and summer, a big vessel of goodness is always welcome at the table. Of course, there is no law saying that you can't mix it up every now and then; a deep, rich, rib-sticking stew could be just the thing for some on a hot summer day, and of course, chili is a favorite in any season. But when it comes to mixing it up, it's not just what's inside the slow cooker that matters.
The Hamilton Beach six-quart Wrap and Serve Slow Cooker (Model: 33760; MSRP: $39.99) features the ability to have its design changed up any time. It ships with four distinct wraps of two pieces each (for front and back of the slow cooker) that can be swapped out, so the small appliance can fit in on the countertop at any time of the year. In addition to the included decorative wraps, seasonal and holiday wraps will be available separately.
Kitchens not only come in all shapes and sizes, but colors, too. It's no coincidence that so many appliances come in stainless steel, white, or black; those are easy to match with any decor. Those that appreciate a splash of color in the kitchen now have the ability to match the appliance to the walls -- certainly easier than the other way around!
