In response to nano-crockpots that don’t get used. Pre-covid for our office chili cook off I tried to increase demand for my chili by reducing its supply, thus making it more desirable. It did not work, I did not win, and people kept asking why I used such a small cooker…

  1. You’re missing the most important piece of the puzzle when it comes to this kind of gambit.

    Marketing.

    Did you try to hire hip looking young people to camp out in line in front of your nano crockpot to drum up buzz and FOMO?

  2. Before covid we used to do chili cook-offs in our office. I’d always lose with only a handful of votes, but interestingly enough my crock would also be licked clean. I’m like it obviously couldn’t have been *that* bad…

  3. Another big benefit is power consumption on the small ones. My cute midget slowcooker 1.7L barely fits 2 portions, but uses only 93-110w according to specs. While my sis has a 5L one which uses 140-160watts.

    Those small ones are also great for warming up meals, as i don’t have a microwave. 1 hour on low works like a charm for stew and things like that.

  4. This really only works if there is an overall supply shortage of chili. I’m sure your other co-workers brought enough to fill everyone’s demand. Now your “company” looks like it can’t keep up and “customers” aren’t going to want to deal with that.

  5. I received one of those little dudes as an extra when I bought my big boy years ago. I’ve always used it to heat up refried beans, cheese and some salsa as a dip. I’ve never ever considered actually letting it cook something for hours. It gets pretty damn hot. I always thought it’s purpose was to warm things. Wow. Sort of blown away. Now sure that size would be worth the effort, but still cool.

  6. Kevin could have really used a pot this size. He wouldn’t have dropped it on the carpet of Dunder Mifflin. Oh, and here is the derivative and one implicit derivative for you:
    d/dq(q/f) = 1/f
    (df(P, q))/(dP) = -f^2/q

Woke up to this bad boy sitting in the kitchen in the box. The wife asked the her mom for a new one for her bday which is weird cause she doesn't cook anything. Seals it so tight i can't even smell it.
