While U-M students are moving into their new rentals all over campus, a weathered stainless steel Crock-Pot® 6.0-Quart Slow Cooker prepares for its fourth set of tenants at its Packard Street home.
“I’ve seen a lot in the last three years since the first family abandoned me here,” the Crock-Pot® mused. “There’s nothing these new kids can do that would surprise me.”
Although marketed as portable, the Crock-Pot® remained at the Packard Street residence after the 2015 students moved out after the last calendar year. However, the Crock- Pot® is unsure if it will make it through another tailgate season.
“I can handle a casserole or chicken parmesan meal once or twice a week, sure,” the Crock-Pot® explained. “But the manpower gameday scrambled eggs and french toast bake require something only a Crock-Pot® 8.0-Quart Slow Cooker with Little Dipper® Food Warmer can handle.”
The Crock-Pot® reported that it will nevertheless attempt to fulfill its duties this school year but is uncertain if it will see a fifth year of residents.
