Robotic Cooking :: Crock-bot

So, earlier in my review of the Roomba I came to thinking, “If only there were a robot that could cook too.” Well – I realized that I have one (sort of).

What a Crock

But wait, that just looks like a Crock Pot?!? Yeah, it is.
So here’s the problem: My wife and I both work 8-5 jobs. Meals (as enjoyable as they can be) are suddenly a major time consumer. Not to mention – usually we are totally exhausted and starved when we get home. Quite often we simply don’t feel like doing a huge amount of cooking. So here’s the trick – get a crock pot to do it for you. All you have to do is cut up some vegetables and throw in a bunch of crap some meat and seasonings. Then just plug in a cook time and temperature. Boom! And I’ll tell you something that’s not a crock — By the time you get home from work, your house will smell wonderful and you will have a delicious hot dinner ready to eat. And as an added Bonus: not a lot of clean up (the pot and whatever you eat on).

Now – you may be wondering, “Won’t I get sick of eating the same thing if I use the Crock-bot?” Apparently there are more than 1400 crockpot recipes on alone. That should hold you over!

Need a Crock Pot? I bet you could find one on for pretty cheap. Or you could get the “one and only” at

    Hogies and Grinders (from my days of bachelorhood):

    Get a big hunk of meat.

    Cook for half a day in a crock pot filled with water on high.

    Remove meat and shred. Dump the water.

    Place meat back in pot of crock.

    Add 1 bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce. (OMGBBQ!!!)

    Crock it on low for another 1/2 day.

    Serve on hogies.
