Here come the meat sweats

Ok, so someone probably DID tell you that Netflix was taking Friends away, but that doesn’t fix the fact that your job’s a joke, you’re broke, and your love life is DOA. Still, some things (and people) in life will always be there for you. Like this unexpected Friends-themed slow cooker, perfect for those who refuse to make chili using any sort of non-branded cookware.

So what’s the deal, as Jerry Seinfeld might say, with this Friends objet de cuisine? Glad you asked. The 6.5-quart cooker has all of the standard functionality you’d expect, making it a perfect vehicle for creating Phoebe’s lasagna and many other foods smaller than a head-sized turkey.

But the real kicker is all of the on-brand, Friends-themed artwork wrapped around the outside, all in the style of the iconic logo. You’ll spot The Couch (which needs to be pivoted), the title sequence fountain, and Joey Tribbiani’s famous catchphrase, among other things. I doubt there’s another slow cooker on the market that you’ll want to stare at for the duration of your meal’s cook time.

As is often the case when a coveted item like this goes on sale, there’s some unfortunate news. The single slow cooker is currently out of stock from retailer Box Lunch. HOWEVER, you can buy a Friends Triple Slow Cooker for just an extra $10 ($69.90), and it looks like there’s currently a 25% discount running on the site.

So instead of hoarding all that food for yourself, tell your friends to put on their Thanksgiving pants and come over for a meal that you can all cook and share in together. After all, that’s what the spirit of the show is all about.
