Looking for specific info?

Can it cook something that hasn’t already been cooked like a regular crock pot? A stew or soup for example.

It is perfect if you like slightly raw or rare meat. Some tomato sauce and butter and the chicken breast or ribeye comes out perfect, just cut them in cubes for even ‘cooking’ and enjoy juicy meat. But, if in a stew or soup it will take hrs for the meat to turn gray.

Can you smell the food cooking in this like you can with a regular crock-pot? That would be a big problem in my office so want to know before i buy.

I use mine in my office. I leave it to heat up on our pantry counter. I can slightly smell food once it really starts to heat up. But that is only if its something super spicy. I don’t notice any smell if it’s soup.

Is the insert stainless steel or aluminum?

Civil engineer here. Not all stainless steel is magnetic. Typically 300 series (austenitic) stainless are not magnetic and 400 series (martensitic/ferric) are magnetic.

What happens if you leave it plugged in for longer than 1 hour? Longer than 3 hours?

Mine is always plugged in for 3 hours. If you add fully cooked meats they will dry a bit, rice will get crisp on the sides same with pasta but i don’t mind. Fish… Will dry out. Soups and stews perfect.

Can you cook oatmeal in this crockpot or just warm up already cooked oatmeal?

This crock-pot doesn’t cook, it just warms. The oatmeal would already need to be cooked.

Has anyone tried to freeze meals in a similarly sized container as the insert for future meals? What were the results and cooking times?

We use the round ziploc containers to freeze leftovers. My husband puts the frozen food in the crockpot in the morning and it’s ready for lunch.

Can the crock pot lunch warmer be plugged in your vehicle?

Not unless you have a converter

If i use a food sealer can i leave the food in in the plastic sealer bag to heat?

I really do not know, but the food i put in gets quite hot, too hot to eat if left on for an hour or more. If there are any worries about the plastic melting you would have to watch how long you left your food in there. With a bit of care, you should be fine since the plastic is made for boiling temperature. Imho no dirty dish to wash!!

How many whats does this take

I’m not sure what you are asking. I love my little lunch crock. I make soup in big batches and freeze quite a bit to have year round. I put mine frozen in the insert and plug it in when i get to work around 8:15 and by 12 its steaming hot and ready to eat. I would like to think that you could heat just about anything up in it.

How is the cord stored? Is it rolled up in a special slot? Or is it just hanging loose and you have to wrap it around the unit???

The cord wraps around the base of the lunch crock. The base of the lunch crock has space for the cord storage.

What is the difference in the color styles

The only difference is the color. The white ones with the colored trim are the standard ones the company typically carries. I believe the black ones with the colored trim were custom done for a different company, as they are not offered by the manufacturer or in any local retail location.

110 or 220?

Did they improve the cord location on this second generation lunch crock? Where does the cord attach to the crock pot?

Well the cooker cable i found it at the bottom pot, it comes coiled form part of the same product, also comes another additional cable to connect it to the computer. Comes inside another container that comes with a lid that is hard to open, but when food is heated opens by herself. Very good product. I hope that this has been your question

Can you heat frozen meals that were previously fully cooked?

Yes, it will take longer when frozen. It takes about 10 hours to cook frozen chicken in a crockpot.

So in order for the food to be warm/hot enough to eat it must be plugged in till you’re ready to eat it?

Hello.

Thank you for reaching out to us at crockpot.

Lunch box has to be plugged in in order to warm up the food. After unplugging it will still keep the heat in.

Thank you and stay safe.

Can you use the insert as a bowl to eat from or do you have to transfer food to a bowl?

Yes, the inner food container can be used as a bowl. You eat right out of the entire lunch crock® after your food is warm. Thank you.

Does this have carrying case

No, the crockpot does not have a carrying case, but that would be nice.

Will it fit spa heat stone, 6 of them? Thanks

It measures 3 inches deep and 4 and one fourth across the top..i don’t know how big the stones are but i would think it should

Is it only warm foods or it can cook or heat foods such as noodle and rice?

Hey there! The crock-pot lunch crock food warmer is not intended for cooking food. This warmer is only designed to reheat food that is already cooked. It warms up leftovers, soups, oatmeals, and more low and slow. Thank you for your question.

Excellent little warmer

I am stoked to bring this to work every day. My coworkers ended up buying them as well. As the colder months approach, i have found a use to actually eat lunch on a daily basis (previously i would skip lunch and only eat dinner). Having a warm meal that heats while you’re at work is nice. Typically, if you microwave chili or soup, the edges of the bowl are hot, but the middle is cold. With this little crock pot, it heats the entire entree, so you have a full-on warm meal. I like the 2 lids, that ensure it is leak proof. Also, it is dishwasher safe, which is a huge bonus for me. Portion size is pretty large, which is surprising- the picture does not do it justice. I am not disappointed, and want another one already. Definitely worth the five stars!

This is great for meal option while driving!

No more cold sandwiches – or looking around for fast-food. This little unit is the perfect solution for me and my traveling appetite.
I use it with a portable power unit in my car and noticed that the power draw of ~45watts can go down to zero when it reaches temperature.
Took about 45-minutes to heat my left-over thai food and it was nicely reheated. My stew on the previous was also completely reheated.
Been looking for something to heat my meals – initially wanted a midget micro-wave but this is completely satisfactory and easy power/use/clean.
I am very picky on how hot my soup/food should be and this unit delivers a heated meal to my specifications (i’m still smiling).
While i have no problem with the ac power requirements thanks to my portable power station (300watts) a dc option would work well for many other people.
Enjoy!

If you’re a college student you need this!

I live on a college campus and they don’t allow us to have microwaves or any other cooking appliances in our dorms so having a hot meal outside of cafe food or fast food can get annoying. So i decided to pick this up and this has been the best thing i ever purchased. I’m able to heat up home cooked meals from home, soups, noodles, oatmeal literally anything! It works so well and it’s super compact and doesn’t take up much space. It is a perfect portion size for one person and it’s super easy to clean as well. I absolutely love this and i highly recommend this for college students!

Just what i was looking for.

We needed something that we could take down to our camp property during day trips this winter, that would allow us to have something hot for lunch. This should be perfect. I washed it up and tried it out tonight by warming up a chunk of lasagna in it. 1 1/2 hours and it was hot and yummy. It did not stick to the pan either. Yep! Can’t wait to have some hot homemade soup this winter when it is cold, but we still need to enjoy our other property.

Best part of lunch!

I cannot rave about this item enough! It’s a very good portion size, easy to use and clean and fits perfect in my lunchbox, although you could just carry it by the handle if you wanted to. Just make sure to plug in and turn on for id say 45 minutes to an hour prior to wanting lunch so it’s nice and hot. (especially if your reheating something hearty like a soup or stew.)

Great buy

I was a little concerned when i got this out of the packing envelop because the box inside was all ripped and smashed in, but to my surprise it worked just fine. I am hoping it continues to work well and doesn’t decide to stop. Otherwise only good things to say bout this! This is perfect for my husband who works outdoors and was tired of taking a cold meal everyday but didn’t have access to a microwave. He has used this multiple times already and was pleasantly surprised with how well it works. He just plugs it in, in his truck and about 20-30 minutes later it is ready to eat! He also really like the portion size!

Very convenient

When it comes to lunch this is a real game changer i use it almost everyday at work soups chili stew anything you can just about heat up also i might add these are going to be nice around the holidays like cheese dips any kind of dips for nachos or anything to heat up the only downfall i found is that the plug should be in the back and not on the side and it should have an on-off switch other than that buy it

I never knew i needed this…

Perfect for taking leftovers to work to eat with a variable (if existent) eating time. Keeps the food at a perfect eating temp for as long as necessary.

So so functional!

I have no words to describe how much i love this. I work in healthcare so wether i cook a small portion or warm up left overs it is fabulous on so many levels!

Great for work!

I use this daily and it’s perfect. I plug mine in around 10 am and by 2 my lunch is always perfect and hot. Portion size is great. Would definitely recommend.

Miss understanding

I am returning this lunchbox because of a miss understanding on my part. It is just a food warmer. I thought i could use it as a slow cooker for small meals as well as a warmer.
Even though i did not use it. The product looks great, sturdy and trendy. Love the color combinations. Would suggest adding a spoon and/or a fork to the lunch box for easier use.

Even heat = better lunch

So i’ve only had this thing for a couple of weeks, but so far it is wonderful. I’ve only used it for things like pasta and chili, but that’s not unusual for my lunch. Unlike microwaving it, i just plug this thing in an hour (actually it’s been closer to two hours because i’m afraid that i’ll forget about it until the last minute).
When it’s lunch time, i have a meal that isn’t half frozen/half mouth-burningly hot. Rather it is all uniformly hot without me having to stir it, put it back in the microwave… Etc.
I don’t know why, but the texture of my pasta isn’t as bad as when i microwave.

Very convenient!

I love this little crockpot and use it just about every day at work! The only reason i didn’t give it five stars is that the inner lid it doesn’t screw on tightly, but when you heat food up in it, it’s almost impossible to take that into a little off without prying it open with a fork or spoon! I do love that it heats up my lunch quickly without a microwave. It takes only 20 minutes to heat up food.

Good for work

I bought this for early morning shifts at work. I also tested it at home before i used it for work. I do like it but i don’t like how the inner top constantly pops off during the cooking time.

Perfect for work

I love this crock pot…i have trouble getting the lid to seal, so i have had some leaking.

Almost fits a can of chunky soup

So convenient and adorable. There is definitely a fill limit and will leak every where if you cross it but it’s easy to clean. I wish the insert bowls were still available to order but they aren’t any more.

Love it

If you tighten the lid, which screws on, you can have a hot meal in only an hour or so. Took mine to work and had stew there.

This is small!

It works fine. It’s just a bit smaller than i expected. But they gave dimensions, so i guess that’s on me.

Color blind

This is not pink! It’s brown! And they don’t even offer brown!

……

It super cute and definitely comes in handy for warming up lunch. Although i ordered it in black and its definitely blue. Not a big fan of blue but it still gets the job done. Love that you can take the inner container with its own separate lid and out it in the fridge.
