Kitchen Solutions You Will Want to Own: I recently had the chance to learn about three new innovative kitchen products - a slow cooker, a jam and jelly maker, and a high-end blender - and all are absolute must-haves for your home. Here's a little more about each of them:
Crock-Pot® Ultimate Cook & Carry Slow Cooker ($69.99): This newly-designed Crock Pot will be available later this summer, and has a lot of excellent features including specially designed stoneware that ensures food maintains the temperature you want, even if the slow cooker is not plugged in to a power source.
This slow cooker also has a "travel temperature gauge" display, so you know the temperature of the food at all times. Interlocking handles make sure there are no unfortunate spills in transit, and there's even pre-set time settings that will auto-shift to "warm" if you're not home when the cooking time completes.

Ball® FreshTECH Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker($99.99): This amazing product - the first of its kind in North America - makes homemade jam or jelly in less than 30 minutes. All you have to do is add pectin and fruit to the jam maker, turn it on and add sugar, and half-an-hour later you're ready to serve and enjoy homemade preserves. Once made, the jams and jellies can be served immediately, canned, or frozen for up to a year. Product comes with directions and recipes.
Oster® Versa Performance Blender ($399.99): While pricey, this blender does it all and can replace several other appliances in your kitchen. Some of the amazing things the Versa Blender can do is make homemade peanut butter from whole peanuts, blend ice cream and sorbets from frozen ingredients, and puree just about any kind of soup or sauce. And of course, this high-end blender also makes smoothies, milkshakes and frozen drinks with ease.
