“The new meals have been extremely popular especially for customers looking to save time after the bustle of a busy holiday season. These exclusive meals include all of the ingredients, and ship directly to the customer, so they’re ready for the dinner table anytime,” said Todd Simon, Senior Vice President and Family Owner of Omaha Steaks. “Combine the ingredients straight from your freezer into the slow cooker, set the temperature and go about your day.”

“By combining Omaha Steaks premium quality ingredients and proteins in a Crock-Pot Slow Cooker we’ve done all of the work for you. Each meal is designed for perfect results every time,” said Carlos Coroalles, Vice President, Brand and Strategic Alliances, Newell Brands Consumer Solutions.

There is renewed interest in slow cooking, especially during the winter months, but I think working families have rediscovered the ease and convenience. Markets from Whole Foods to Costco are now offering ready-to-drop slow cooker meals in their meat departments. The packages contain everything one needs to create a meal in a slow cooker without any fuss. Like these supermarket offerings, the Omaha Steaks meals are ready to pour straight from your freezer or refrigerator into the slow cooker, set the temperature, and go about your day. No prep. No work. No worries.

While Newell Brands owned Crock-Pot slow cookers are the standard – like Kleenex, a brand name synonymous with a product – there are many options to choose from today. Companies such as AllClad, Cuisinart, KitchenAid are producing quality standalone slow cookers but all are finding competition from the newer multi-cookers, capable of perform several different functions.

While some of these multi-cookers are manufactured by quality companies, I am hesitant to recommend them. I have never subscribed to the avoidance philosophy regarding so called single-use tools. I understand the desire not to own separate pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker appliances, which would require substantial store space, but combining so much functionality into one machine also puts more at risk should it fail.

The reason Crock-Pot and other standalone machines are so reliable is that they are built with one purpose in mind. Maybe combination machines will one day demonstrate the same fortitude as single purpose devices, but for now, I much prefer to own appliances of proven reliability.

The growth of ready-to-drop slow cooker meals allows home cooks the opportunity to easily prepare a hot delicious meal for their families using fresh foods. As we all know, the easier one makes it for consumers to do the right thing, the more likely they are to do it.

    The beef bourguignon had so much salt in it that I ended up throwing it away. I mean ALOT of salt. THere was enough food and meat in the meal and really looked good and smelled good but omg upon (trying to) eating it I thought my blood pressure was going to hit the roof. I will not buy these again or cook the other one in the freezer.

    Sorry Ms. Ward had such a bad experience. We received a “promo” Chicken and Dumplings “SloCooker” meal and cut the two large chicken breasts in half…added one can of Progresso Chicken and Dumplings and one cup of water. No additional seasoning. Set our Crock Pot to Low setting for two hours and when all food was thawed, increased the slow cooker to high. Two hours later, had the tastiest, most delicious bowl of Chicken and Dumpling Stew. Wow, it was good. There is enough left over for my wife and I to have one more meal tomorrow, and we can’t wait for dinner to come. Thank you Omaha Steak for making dinner so easy. That was our experience, and we wanted to share because of Ms.Wards bad experience…Ron💕💕

    I purchased several of the slow cooker meals. I first tried the Chicken and Dumplings. It was beyond awful. The sodium level was out of this world. I tired to eat but it all ended up in the sink less than two hours later. They also state that it is six servings. Yeah, right! As bad as it is, maybe so, but if it was able to be eaten, it would be no more than three portions. Have loved Omaha Steaks for years but the Crock Pot means are beyond horrible. Worse than any frozen dinner I have ever eaten. I will be contacting them for a refund. Do not buy the crock pot meals!!!
