Blenders and toaster ovens are great, but our favorite kitchen appliance has to be the slow cooker. A weeknight lifesaver, it’s the best way to get a healthy and delicious meal on the table without spending hours hunched over the stove. But it’s not just for beef stew, either—click through the slideshow below to see all the possibilities.

Korean Chicken Sliders

This recipe has become a staple in food blogger Chris's house. Since all of the work is done by the slow cooker over four hours it's a recipe fit for entertaining. With toppings like aioli, bean sprouts and avocado, your guests (and kids!) wont be able to resist these sliders. Hop over to Shared Appetite for the full recipe.
