Many of us place dinner in a slow cooker and wonder off to run errands, even go to work. For the most part, this works out well. The stew or chili is perfect when we arrive back home to eat.
But, things happen. We can get delayed in our travels, or perhaps even realize that we’ll be arriving ahead of schedule. So, while an internet-connected crock-pot may sound like a strange, or even unnecessary, idea, it actually could prove quite useful. And Belkin, through the WeMo line of home automation, is bringing you just such a thing.
“The WeMo-enabled Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker is the first WeMo equipped product stemming from Belkin’s collaboration with Jarden Consumer Solutions, a family of household appliance brands. The Crock-Pot Smart Slow Cooker is the first smartphone controllable slow cooker, which allows you to adjust the cooker’s settings from anywhere giving you greater flexibility and control over life’s unexpected moments”, the company announces.
The new crock-pot will retail for $99.99 and is available immediately.
