In fact, Rival has even made a point of marketing that aspect of its crockpot line of products in it's own advertising, as seen in this example:
"It’s going on 7:00, and Jackie is just walking in the door. She’s had an exhausting day at work, and after picking up the kids from soccer practice they got stuck in traffic and are just now getting home. The thought of standing on her feet another hour cooking dinner makes her cringe, but as she opens the door she catches a whiff of warm beef stew, and remembers. Dinner’s already taken care of. She threw everything in her Rival crock pot this morning! That simple 1/2-hour of prep has saved her a grueling chore this evening. She smiles, and heads upstairs to change clothes so she can play with the kids a bit before dinner.
Jackie’s story is all too common. With the hectic, rushed lives that everyone leads these days, having a tool to help you take care of cooking dinner is invaluable. That’s where a Rival crock pot comes in handy. Cooking with a slow cooker takes a fraction of the time as on the stovetop, and involves 95% less work. For a busy family they’re an invaluable time saver, and can allow you to spend more time in the evening doing something you want to do, versus something you have to.
Crockpots can give you:
* More time for yourself in the evening.
* Healthy meals with little advance prep.
* More time during the day. Crockpots need little tending and allows you to focus on things other than dinner. You can get more chores done when you crockpot.
* Tasty dinners. Recipes are usually very simple and almost impossible to mess up!
As you can see, whether you have no time or all the time in the world, slow cookers can offer you a host of benefits that you’d be hard pressed to find in any other appliance."
Of course there is also the invaluable convenience that the Rival crockpot offers you when planning to entertain others for dinner.
Many people avoid entertaining their friends at home today because it’s just so much work. Cooking for all of your guests can be extremely time-consuming, and all those dishes to be washed afterwards makes it seem like more trouble than it’s worth. Using a rival crock pot to do the cooking for you, however, can take away a lot of the stress of entertaining.
Think about it. What if you could have your friends over for a relaxing dinner and only spend twenty minutes tohalf an hour in the kitchen prepping that morning for that evening's dinner? You could be hanging out with them over drinks instead of slaving over a hot stove. Rival crock pots offer a long list of time saving advantages, one of which is enabling you to spend more time with your dinner guests instead of being stuck in the kitchen. And what’s even better is that at the end of the night, there is only the ceramic pot to wash. No piles of dirty pots and pans from your dinner party! You can put your feet up and relax.
Truly, entertaining using your slow cooker makes cleanup a breeze … leaving you free to relax after your guests are gone!
