ATLANTA, May 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As the leading brand in slow cookers, Crockpot continues to innovate the slow-cooking experience to fit and feed your lifestyle with the introduction of the Alexa-compatible Crockpot® Programmable Slow Cooker. With voice-controlled cooking, you now get the convenience of controlling your slow cooker from anywhere, so you can spend less time in front of your slow cooker fretting about your meal, and more time making moments that matter.
"Set it and forget it has always been a benefit of slow cooking, and we want to continue to find ways for consumers to worry less about dinner time," said Tim Anderson, Director of Brand Development, Crockpot. "By adding Amazon's technology to our slow cooker, you can now use your voice or the Alexa app to easily start, stop, program, or check the status of your meal from anywhere. It doesn't get more convenient than that."
The innovation is $119.99 and available at Amazon.com:
