When we moved into a smaller house with an even smaller kitchen I really missed having a slow cooker, our old one was too big and bulky for the new small kitchen – until I found out that there are awesome Mini Slow Cookers with just 1.5 Quart available.
A Mini Slow Cooker has many advantages, let’s take a look at it.
The most obvious point about a mini slow cooker is its size. It fits easily on a countertop of a small kitchen or is easily stored away in a kitchen cabinet or bench storage. Although I would prefer having it out because this model looks so great and stylish. Just having it on the countertop upgrades the look of the kitchen, wouldn’t you agree.
This mini slow cooker has another great advantage that people who live in a solar or wind powered house will appreciate: it is powered by only 120 watts. This will certainly be the slow cooker for you.
When a slow cooker comes in the size of 1.5 quart – which is about the smallest size you can find – you will most probably use it for appetizers and of course one-pot meals. It’s said to be perfect for one person, others confirm that it’s great for two persons as well.
I also like that it’s thanks to its small size lightweight – it doesn’t even reach 5 lbs. – which makes it much easier to lift and place it close to the outlet.
Another feature you want to see on a slow cooker is how easy it is to clean. Well, this model is dishwasher safe in regard to the lid and inner pot.
This incredibly affordable mini slow cooker is also a great gift idea for people moving into small spaces such as dorm rooms, small apartments, RV, houseboat or tiny houses. They certainly will appreciate this practical mini slow cooker.

This is a sweet little slow-cooker. Seriously, this was a great purchase. It is a wellmade product. The product insert was instructive and thorough. A few months post-purchase and the cooker is going strong. It gets used 2 – 3 times a week for various recipes and I am very pleased with the purchase.
Works perfectly. Controlling the temp is really a plus.
This would be great for a college dorm, small living space, or tiny house where meals are for one or two people.
