Can we agree that small appliances make our lives easier? Rice cookers, air fryers, and Instant Pots make lunch and dinnertime quick and easy! One small kitchen appliance that makes dinnertime effortless is a Crock-Pot or slow cooker, especially mini slow cookers when you're cooking for one (or two).

So, why a mini slow cooker over a large one? Well, as much as we love leftovers, we hate too many leftovers. I hate being wasteful, and sometimes I just need enough leftover soup to last a few meals, not three days worth!

These 2-quart slow cookers are perfect for single people, couples, and college students.

  • 2-quart capacity
  • Removable stoneware

This $25 mini slow cooker has a classic knob with three adjustable heat settings. The temperature settings are the same as your good ol' oval slow cooker (low, high, and a warm setting).

Pull the removable ceramic pot out to clean after you're done cooking your appetizers, side dishes, or delicious meals.

The 2-quart round manual slow cooker has plenty of reviews that prove it's the best! See what customers are saying about the countertop appliance.

It doesn't take up too much counter space! (We love that.)

Yes, to everything about this review! Wasting food is never a good feeling, especially when you know your household will not touch the food at all!

Absolutely agree.

Overall, this tiny appliance is fantastic for people cooking for one. Plus, pulling a 6-quart ceramic pot out of a slow cooker is a pain in the butt. Washing the tiny pot is going to feel less of a chore.
