With the big game right around the corner, you're probably dreaming up dishes to cook for your guests — whether you want to rely on massive tubs of dip or piles of spicy wings. If you haven't made up your mind yet, you may want to think about investing in a handy kitchen appliance that's sure to make entertaining a whole lot easier.

We're referring to the Crock-Pot 8-Quart Slow Cooker, which is currently 30 percent off at Amazon. This top-rated appliance is primed to produce enough food for over 10 people — which is sure to feed your guests throughout the length of the game and half-time show.

It's all about setting and forgetting: Just add the ingredients to the stoneware pot, select from one of three heat settings (low, high, and warm), and set a timer for up to 20 hours. Once the timer hits zero, the device will automatically keep food warm until you're ready to eat.

The 8-quart pot is so large that it can fit a 6-pound roast and an 8-pound chicken inside. Plus, it's plenty easy to clean, since the stoneware pot and lid are both removable and dishwasher-safe.
