Retailer Box Lunch created a Friends-themed slow cooker that promises to make fans feel like Monica in the kitchen. The 6.5-quart appliance boasts a removable stoneware insert, a tempered glass lid, different heat settings and best of all, a design that looks back upon images and fun phrases from the show. The Friends-themed artwork that wraps around the outside of the countertop appliance includes not just the show's colorful, iconic logo but also the fountain from the title sequence, Joey Tribbiani’s famous catchphrase and a couch that sits beside the word "pivot!"
As a variation on the single Friends Slow Cooker, Box Lunch also offers a Triple Slow Cooker that consists of three 2.5-quart vessels with independent heat controls.
