Lunch Crockpot Review

For me, a timely lunch at work isn’t always a sure thing. I might eat lunch in my car while traveling between buildings, or might be with students during “normal” lunch hours. On the days where my lunch is built in to my schedule, I cherish every minute! That’s why I’ve been loving Crock Pot’s Lunch Crock. It saves me (precious) time so I can sit and enjoy hanging with my lunch bunch or, when I’m on the run, it is ready as soon as I am.

Here’s why I love the Lunch Crock:

  • No dealing with questionably dirty microwaves in the break room
  • No wasting precious time in line waiting to use the microwave
  • Easy to carry handle
  • Wrap and store cord
  • Cute as heck
  • Can also be used as a dip warmer
  • Small enough to leave on my desk and only transport the inner pot to and from home for cleaning
  • Set and forget-an indicator light shows the device is on and heating

The only negative I’ve found with the Lunch Crock is that the inner pot is not intended to be used for storage and transport of the food. The inner lid is not air tight and could lead to a messy lunch bag spill. It would be nice if there were one less dish to clean, but I’m guessing it was designed that way for a reason for the warming process. Below you can see my pink Lunch Crock featuring my Taco Soup recipe.

So cute, so easy!

It is also important to know that the Lunch Crock is for heating only. It is not for the initial cooking of raw ingredients. I’ve always put my lunch in about 2 hours prior to eating it, since that just works with the flow of my day, but reviewers have said 30 minutes is even enough time.

  1. i work from home but i stayin my “office” during work hours so i come down and watch tv and eat on lunch.

  2. I usually bring in leftovers from the night before and I eat at my desk while I do work so I don’t have to bring it home with me!

  3. I’m a stay at home/ homeschooling mama, so if I get lunch its usually something like a stale pop tart or kids left over sandwiches. haha

    1. Depending on the day, finding time is difficult for me, too. I usually end up paying for it later in snacky calories.

  4. I’m a stay-at-home mom, so my lunches are at home with my 3 year old daughter. However, my older daughter and husband could totally use this. This is actually the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for my husband who will not use the microwave at his office.

  5. One thing about my job is i like i dont have a certain time limit but just to be aware of my surroundings. I usually fix something quick though, i love this small crock pot because i have been taking a lot of soup/ chili to work first time I’ve seen this small of crock pot I love it

    1. Yes, it is perfect for soups and chili! I just used it last week to heat up lasagna and it worked great, too.

  6. I don’t really get a lunch break, so I have to eat when I can. I try to keep snacks and lunch in my office. I have a little ultras mini fridge. That can either cool or it can be a warmer. The only downside is I have to choose one or the other. I have been considering purchasing one of these little crockpots, so I no longer have to choose, but can warm my food and keep some cool drinks in my office.

  7. I usually just have something quick and easy for lunch at work. Like to just sit and relax must of my lunch hour

  8. I eat a sandwich(usually peanut butter and jelly, some chips, and a snack cake of some kind. A warm lunch would be a great change of pace!!

  9. My coworkers eat in my classroom during lunch; we all bring leftovers or a sandwich. This small crockpot would help me make the most of the 20 minutes we get for lunch. Between walking the students to and from the cafeteria, we only have about 15 minutes to eat.

  10. I work from home so I eat when I am hungry. This would be for a family member who is working & goes out for lunch

  11. I read the “about” post that tells me a little something about yourself since this is the first time coming across your blog.

  12. When doing sales work, lunch time is time to slip your shoes off and rest those tired feet for a few minutes.

  13. I’m fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom. My 18 year old daughter works 2 jobs and takes her lunch everyday. She loves pasta or soup for her lunch and the lunch crock would be perfect for that plus it’s really cute!

  14. I am always sitting at my desk eating a cold sandwich because we don’t have a microwave at the office. If I had this I could bring soups, chili and stew in the winter months which would be great.

  15. I pack lunches everyday but usually a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich..Would love this little crock pot it would give me more lunch options.

  16. Most days I unfortunately, eat lunch at my desk. On certain days, I can step out and run some errands and have a relaxing lunch. I could use this crock pot for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. I am at home for lunch, but my hubby is always on the go at lunch and needs something to keep his lunch warm.

  18. I usually eat something I made at home I’m not always able to heat up items so I stick with sandwiches/salads or snack items like yogurt, granola bars, nuts, fruit.

  19. i usually pack my lunch and put it in the fridge when I arrive at work around 6 am. Then I have to heat it up in the microwave. If I had this, I would not have to wait for it to heat.

  20. I’m lucky enough to be able to be at home for lunches, and I often have leftovers. I’ve been tempted to buy one of these Lunch Crocks to heat soup, chili, etc.; thanks for this chance to win one!

  21. Iโ€™m retired so I donโ€™t have have a rushed lunch but this would be so handy to have on days when we have lots of doctor appointments.

  23. I work at a medical facility so i take lunch when i can but it is an important time for me to take a few minutes break and enjoy some good food

  24. I take my lunch with me on one job and pull over on the road to quickly eat a sandwich. When I do my online job from home, I stop for a half hour and prepare and eat a quick bite and relax before going back to work.

  25. I usually pack a sandwich or something that doesn’t need to be heated or refrigerated, since our breakroom doesn’t have a fridge/microwave.

  26. I usually pack a snack for lunch – just enough not to be hungry throughout the day and reach for something quick and high calorie!
