For Pesach you can also use it for many things. Chicken, matza pizza, vegetable, potatoes, cheese latkes, potato latkes, scrambled eggs. It's different than a crok pot, different uses.

I have seen it being used for shashuka and pasta and other things but I dont believe that you can leave it on for the 3 days of yom tov so a crock pot is better for that. And if you are out all day for Chol Hamoed then its nice to come home to ready cooked dinner which you can put up in the crockpot in the morning before you leave.
You can cook almost anything in the crockpot as well including stews, soups, cake and kugel/Yapzik, etc so depending on what you do eat on Pesach and how much cooking you want to do a crock pot would be more useful but to each their own. I guess you can take both as that would enable you to cook the most amount of food with only two appliances.

Oh no, you can't leave it on for 3 days. I don't think you can leave it on for too long. I thought she's asking about chol hamoed.
A crock pot is also a good idea for chol hamoed because you come home to a cooked meal but many hotels don't allow crock pot in the room.

Hi all. I really appreciate all the helpful responses. Thank you! Smile

Just to clarify: I am planning on traveling during chol hamoed only, so no need to leave it on for an extensive period. I was looking for something that we can use to prepare light (probably dairy? I don‘t want to start messing with meat in place with no real kitchen...) meals in a lodging with no kitchen facilities except for a fridge and microwave.

The other possibility is to just find a different place that does have a stovetop and take a few cheap Pesach pots and pans with us. But I thought that this option may be problematic if the place wasn't kashered for Pesach.

Make scrambled eggs, omelets, frittata, fish, hash browns, cheese pancakes, potato latkes, matza pizza, eggplant, sautéed vegetables... think of it as an electric griddle with a cover for even cooking.

Hi -

Someone just offered me a brand new (Israeli equivalent of a) Betty Crocker pizza maker. I've heard about it here on these boards, and thought I'd ask for your opinions.

Normally, I don't like too many kitchen gadgets, but I thought this may come in handy when travelling. Usually, we stay in airbnbs with kitchens and we just bring our own pots and pans, but for Pesach, for example, we may have to stay someplace with very minimal coking facilities (microwave and hot water heater), and I was thinking that a device like this may come in handy.

Is it useful? Or a waste of storage space?

I'd love to hear your opinions.

I am posting this under travel and not under cooking because I think vacation is when I am most likely to use this gadget.

TIA!

What was the Israeli equivalent pizza maker called? I would like to give that info to my daughter so she can buy one there. Thanks
