CrockPot (actually the name of the brand) has been making slow cookers practically indispensable since the 1970s.
Whether you call it a slow cooker or a crockpot, nearly every home now has this staple kitchen appliance because they are so incredibly easy to use and they save on time, prep, and clean-up!
Favorite Slow Cooker Recipes
Slow cookers are famous for making otherwise time-consuming stovetop and oven-baked recipes uber-quick and easy.
While the classic recipe is definitely a staple soup like this crock pot butternut squash soup, slow cookers are capable of so much more! Chicken, large cuts of beef, and pork roasts can all be slow-cooked to tender, juicy perfection!
Almost any weekday meals can be started in the morning and be ready by dinnertime with zero fuss!
Perks of a Slow Cooker
- Recipes become more flavorful when they’re slow-cooked and all of the ingredients have time to fully meld together!
- A slow cooker is a great appliance for reheating delicious food without drying them out.
- Crockpots are also the perfect way to keep recipes warm. Need to keep a cheesy dip warm? Pop it in the crockpot on warm and serve it straight from there!
