Re: Do You Still Use A CROCKPOT / Slow Cooker, and why?😊

I have had one since 1974 and I still use one. I make soup in mine during the Winter. I love to just have it cooking all day and when it is cold and snowing there is just nothing better than hot soup and the smell of it when you come in.

No, for some reason nothing cooks right. My meat is usual Y overcooked and the veggies are undercooked. I've tried all different recipes and still no luck

I just used mine.  Made a turkey breast in it for first time and came out great.  Last week made a roast.


One kitchen gadget not a waste of money for me.  I gave my bread maker away and never used.  

I like using crock pot and especially in winter time because so many things you can do in it.

Yes I use my slow/multi cooker 5 or more times a week on the average.  It does everything my stove does ( except baking)  with a lot less clean up and work.  I can put food in it and cook it all day with none or less cooking on stove depending on what I am fixing. 

 

When we are finished moving I intend to buy a divided pot to fit my slow cooker so I can fix 2 separate foods at once.

We still have our's, have had it for many years. Wouldn't give it up, I love using mine, with a liner sometimes, without sometimes depending on what I'm making. It is very heavy though, has a ceramic pot inside the heating element. it's a 6 qt deep round version, I do wish I had an oval one.

I use a crockpot/slow cooker at least once a week in the fall and winter. I just used one the last week. Mine has some programming options so it works for a lot of things.

 

I used a pressure cooker for a while but didn't really care for it so I went back to slow cookers.

I just picked up a new one.  My old one died so I decided to get the Ninja all in one.  It doesn't compare to a crock pot.  I only buy Hamilton Beach because years ago when I needed to replace my old Crock Pot, the new one I got almost burned my counter.  Had I not had it on a cutting board, it would have.  I returned it and was told they are getting ready to recall several models for the same problem.  No more Crock Pot brand for me.

Yes--  I still use my crock pot. I use it for  tough meats but especially for my mom's recipe for BBq spareribs. A pot roast is prefect as is a corned beef---- besides that, the whole house smells amazing with the smells of those things cooking all day. I do have a pressure cooker that I use all the time but the crock pot is my go to for comfort foods

Used my crockpot on Saturday to cook a pork butt that way brought to my nephew's Father's Day cookout.  It was delish.  Reason why I still use a crockpot is the ease of cooking something in it.  Sort of like a "set it and forget it."  Everything comes out perfect.
