Customize Your Crock Pot
If you’re a Crock Pot fan, check out the Crock Pot website’s Create-A-Crock tool to create your own customized slow cooker.
There are three sizes available:
- 6 quart oval
- 5.5 quart oval
- 2.5 quart round
There are lots of different backgrounds to choose from. My favorite pattern is the bird design featured in this post, but there are also seasonal designs, designs for baby showers, designs to match common kitchen themes, and designs with different sporting themes.
You can opt to add photos and text to your design if desired. Photos should be at least 750 pixels wide by 500 pixels tall for best results. The tool wouldn’t let me upload any smaller photos when I was checking out the website. I also couldn’t figure out how to get the layout to work with vertical photos, so I would plan on using horizontal images for this project.
It takes 48 hours for the company to produce your slow cooker. If you select standard shipping, your item should arrive 5 to 7 days after your order is complete.
Proper care will ensure that your customized Crock Pot stays looking its best. The lid and removable stoneware are dishwasher safe, but you just wipe the outside of the Create-A-Crock clean with a damp cloth.
I think a customized Crock Pot would be an awesome personalized gift for anyone who likes to cook. I have a large Crock Pot that I love, but I’d be thrilled with a personalized smaller slow cooker to take to potlucks and parties.
I can also see this being a neat grandparent gift. My mother loves personalized items with pictures of her grandkids, but I don’t think she needs any more coffee mugs or photo books.
What do you think of this idea? Would you like a Crock Pot customized with your favorite family photos?
