  7. Holy Cow that looks awesome!!!! I’m always throwing stuff in my crock and then bringing it to work. It’d be great to just cook while I work. I love that its shatterproof as I’ve been known to drop mine and had to rush out and get a new one. Please enter me in the giveaway.

    I was so excited to see this new product by Ninja. I have had the Ninja BL700 Blender and Food Processor Kitchen System for some time and love it! I hope I win the Ninja Slow Cooking System/Crockpot in your giveaway contest. It looks awesome and I know I will be using it all the time!
    Have a great day!

  14. I am so excited to try this new cooker. I have an uncanny knack for burning up my crock pots. I guess I use them toooo much! I love this web site and Stephanie you are my ROCK STAR!

  15. Ever since I saw Stephanie on GMA, I have been obsessed with my crockpots and her recipes. The Ninja looks great but to be honest, I am a bit concerned about the price. I think that I will tell my husband that I would like one for Christmas (yes, yes, I am dorky enough that I honestly would like this as a Christmas gift!!!!)

  16. i have a crockpot, but this sounds like the next step up from that, iwould love to have a ninja slow cooker system. and whats better then free. i love to get things then brag to all my friends about how good it is. and who knows some may even buy the ninja.

  17. I’m newly retired and preparing your chicken and dumplings for dinner tonight per a friends excellent review. I am interested in your new “free” giveaway…sounds like a winner, and I want to be one…thanks and good luck to me!

  18. I would love to win the new crockpot. It looks very interesting and definitely one I would use a lot. Thanks. Emj

  19. What an incredilbe site, I have been using a lot of recipes from here, i just do not post. I have two dedicated slow cooker days, I would love to have the new cooker for all the dog events I go to.thnkas

  20. I love the slow cooker receipes shared! I have been leaving my family often to help care for a sister with ovaian cancer and i’ve been able to really get good and healthy meals on the table to my kids and husband because of you guys!

    much love,

  21. Sounds as if you are truly convinced. Working and having very active children who love skating (yes cold all year round) and cross country – again, cold here in the northeast, we love our slow cooker! We often bring slow cooker items to the concession stand/fund raisers for these and for our team’s fight against Ovarian Cancer in association with Caring Together. We could feed more people.

  22. Just saw the infomercial. . .this thing looks awesome. I would love to be able to win one.

  23. Wow, great giveaway! I would love to win this. I started slow cooking after I found your site and now I am addicted!

  25. I would love to win this. I love your cheeseburger soup recipe.

  26. I love winning things even though I rarely do…but winning one of these would be wonderful.

  27. My crockpot is one my parents bought me when I moved out on my own, in 1994!! It still does the job but what I wouldn’t do to have a Ninja with all the awesome things! To think – a programmable crock pot, among all the totally cool other things it can do! That would be the best thing to get!

  28. I love slow cooking and am in the process of reducing the gluten in our diets for other health reasons so I love to watch my email for new posts. I’d love one of those posts to be a freebie!
