This portable solution for nacho cheese and buffalo chicken dip holds 20-ounces—think a large can of soup—and has a lid to prevent spills and a handle for carrying. "One of the best things I've purchased," added the reviewer. "[It] was easy to carry my spinach dip for [a] holiday party and keep it warm throughout."

Beyond saving your vehicle's upholstery, the crock warmer is designed for simple cleanup with a removable interior bowl that is dishwasher-safe, which is a must if you're planning on eating something like chili-and-cheese dip that turns into concrete when it cools. Bonus: The appliance's power cord wraps around the base for quick storage when you're done cooking.

After the Super Bowl, you'll still find yourself reaching for this handy little appliance a few times a week to warm soup or leftovers. With more than 10,000 perfect ratings on Amazon, the food warmer has been a lunchtime favorite of shoppers because it easily fits on a desk and heats chili more evenly than a microwave.

"We are buying a second, so my husband and I can both enjoy warm lunches at work," wrote one shopper. "I love this little thing. It's lightweight, large enough for a good portion but looks so small, easy to clean and is just bloody perfect. I wish I had found it years ago."

Whether you think of this as a personal queso carrier or a way for you to share a great recipe for carmelized onion dip, the Crockpot Lunch Crock Food Warmer is a convenient warming tool for lots of different moments. Stop worrying if your dip will arrive safely and shop this beloved slow cooker on Amazon right now.
