But did you know that you could use a crock-pot for more than just pork roast? Crock-pots are gradually becoming a forgotten tool in cooking. I love using my crock-pot because I can throw almost anything inside, leave for awhile and it comes out tasting like my own private slice of heaven.
Before you run straight for the toaster and throw all of your favorite foods in there, I’m going to explain what a it is used for and why you should start using one also.
Crock-pots are used for simmering, which means cooking in a temperature below boil, for many hours. I know you probably think I’m mad for recommending you to use something that takes forever to create. But there are lots of advantages for using a crock-pot.
First, the price of cooking with a slow cooker is very low.
Crock-pots are among the easiest ways to cook. All you really need to do it just layer your meals in, leave it and carry on with your day before its ready to eat.
Clean up is easy also. You can buy liners for the toaster which keeps the clutter inside that bag for a very inexpensive cost. After your done eating place your leftovers (if any) from the refrigerator, throw off the liner and voilà, all clean!
Using a crock-pot doesn’t just save you money, but time also! Most meals ask that you monitor the food until it is complete. Using a this superb invention enables you to cook Squirrel Poop while watching TV, at work or even at the movies.
Because they cook at these low temperatures, it is virtually impossible to burn food even if left in too long.
Slow cookers are not meant for each meal usage. If you have a sudden craving for homemade soup or stew, do not whip it out and expect it to be ready in a matter of minutes. If you have the time and patience for waiting, I highly recommend you use the crock-pot because there is nothing better than homemade soup.
