Beat the heat with delicious, blended coffeehouse-style frozen drinks from the brand that did coffee before coffee was cool.

Lighten up the menu. Give the barbecue a break. Though it tastes great, calories and costs add up fast. Cut both and eliminate the need to babysit the cooking process by preparing healthier slow-cooked meals. The new Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker with Smart Cook™ Technology features an innovative "Ready At" setting which only requires busy hosts to select the base protein and then choose the time they would like the meal to be ready. It’s that simple! The appliance then adjusts its power as necessary to deliver the meal on time every time so hosts can spend their time enjoying the party rather than manning the grill or stove.
