Today my Crock-Pot almost caught my hair on fire. I woke up early this morning, chopped up a nice beef stew, and plugged it in to cook. I didn’t notice that the cord was frayed–until sparks shot out past my hair, the wall sizzled, and the fuse blew.
I stood there a few moments panicking, frantically feeling my hair and checking the counter to make sure nothing was on fire. (Oh, and there might have been some loud shrieking.) 😉
I am still very rattled. I use my slow cooker all the time.
So today I’m ordering a Wonderbag Portable Slow Cooker with Recipe Cookbook.
Have you ever heard of a Wonderbag? They are like the Toms Shoes of slow cookers. American women buy one for their homes, and somewhere far away, an African woman gets one too. Wonderbags are just starting to break into the American market. I first heard about them from a friend from England.
The Wonderbag goal is to help women, save fuel and save the planet.
Check out the Wonderbag website to be inspired. I’ll be posting about my new purchase in the future, so you can follow along to see how well it works.
In the meantime, please check the cord on your Crock-Pot!
