  • This article was very helpful. I love to use mine. My newest one has three in one, each with its own control settings. I can start at different times and combine at the end. Works great for the two of us.
  • good tips... I have used crock pot a lot. I recently replaced mine with a smaller one. The outside of it is hot to the touch. My other one was not like that.. is it safe?? I threw away the box so do not think I can return it. Does anyone else have this happen. I do mean VERY hot.

    Why not use canned, drained and rinsed beans? Isn't the point of a slow-cooker reduction in effort and ease in preparation? Using canned beans also reduces power usage. Why turn on 220V when you're already going to use 110V?
  • In 34 years married my husband and I have loved crockpots. Made Sunday dinner in 2 cps just to cut down on heat in the house -- which is a big summer motivator! Our microwave died recently and I now use a very small cp to reheat frozen bread, biscuits, muffins, etc - just wrap in a little foil and set the cp on low. We also use Chef Meg's ideas on how to cook brown rice. Works well for potluck style dinners, too. Thanks for an encouraging article and all comments!
  • I really enjoy the slow cooker, saves on dishes and the house smells wonderful when you return in the evening, dinner is done. I also give a crock pot for wedding presents. The newlyweds look at it strange at first, then once the children come along. They appreciate the time saver.
  • I find new uses for my crockpot all the time. Now that I have a pressure cooker/crockpot combo it is even more versatile. Broth from the bones and veg in the pressure cooker in large quantities quickly for the freezer. Then make soups and stews with it in the slow cooker. It has a stainless steel insert for cooking so browning and cooking all in one. I don't loose all of the good brown sticky bits. They get incorporated into the recipe when I add the liquid and stir it up.
