A real home cooked meal usually takes a little time, but it's not always so easy to just flip on your slow cooker and then leave your house. And you probably can't ask your dog to hop up on the counter and flip it on around noon. Enter Belkin with the Crock-Pot® Smart Slow Cooker with WeMo.
From CNet's demonstration above, you'll see that using WeMo technology, this slow cooker is smartphone controllable, which means you can load it up in the morning and head to work, then switch it on remotely so your pulled pork is perfectly prepared when you walk back in through the door. You can even adjust the temperature and check the status of your dish from wherever you are through the WeMo app. And at $99, it's a more than an affordable replacement for your old slow cooker, which is undoubtedly haunted by the ghosts of 1,000 pork shoulders past.
