6-Quart Crock-Pot Slow Cooker:
There are few methods of cooking that get foods better tenderized or infused with the flavors surrounding them than slow-cooking in a Crock Pot. Notice the capitalization. Turns out Crock-Pot is a brand, whereas all my life I’ve just called slow-cookers “crockpots.” Seems like one of those Kleenex situations in the making. In any case, having a Crock-Pot slow cooker like this is one of the foundational tools for your kitchen. “Digital countdown control lets you program cook times anywhere from 30 minutes up to 20 hours; shifts to Warm setting automatically once cook time completes. Easy-to-use locking lid featuring lid gasket provides extra seal for less mess on-the-go. Removable oval stoneware is stylish for any table.All Crock-Pot Slow Cooker removable crockery inserts (without lid) may be used safely in the microwave and the oven set up to 400°F. If you own another slow cooker brand, please refer to your owner’s manual for specific crockery cooking medium tolerances.” If you don’t have one, you need one, and this one is on sale today for just $32!
D-Link Wireless AC1900 Dual Band WiFi Gigabit Router (DIR-880L):
I like to feature wireless routers every once in a while because these days, keeping up with the latest technology sometimes falls by the wayside. Were you aware that the current standard for Wi-fi is 802.11AC? Are you still using an 802.11N wireless router at home (or worse, 802.11G)? Maybe it’s time to catch up with the times, especially since the AC routers are well-enough established now that the prices are coming down. As on this model from the dependable folks at D-Link. Includes the following:
- Advanced AC1900 Wi-Fi Dual-Band (600N+1300AC Mbps Speed) performance
- Lag free streaming using fast and reliable wireless, ethernet and USB performance
