1. Crockpot cooking is easy, even if you are an inexperienced cook. There are 4 ingredient crockpot recipes and 5 ingredient crockpot recipes, which just involve adding the ingredients, turning the machine on and waiting for several hours. Some of the very best crockpot recipes are the simplest ones.
2. Slow cooker recipes are so versatile. You can make much more than crockpot soups and stews in there. You can make crockpot appetizer recipes, crockpot dessert recipes and many other kinds of easy crockpot recipes. You can also match your slow cooker to your family because they come in sizes ranging from one and a half quarts to seven quarts. If you are not sure which size to get, go for a bigger one because crockpot meals reheat well and you can make roasts in the bigger ones more easily. A three and a half quart one is ideal if there are only two of you.
3. You can start your crockpot meals as late as four hours in advance or as early as ten hours in advance. Most crockpot recipes can be cooked on high for four to five hours or on low for eight to ten hours but if you have to leave the food in the crockpot for an extra hour because dinner is unexpectedly delayed it will not be ruined.
4. Slow cookers make cleaning up easy. Most slow cookers have a removable ceramic dish, which is easy to clean. Cleaning one ceramic dish is far better than having several pots and pans to wash up.
5. A crockpot recipe will cook itself. This means you can add the ingredients, combine them, turn the appliance on and go off to do something else. You do not have to watch a crockpot, stand over it or even stir the recipe. Just leave it alone and it will cook your meal perfectly by itself.
6. Sometimes you will not feel like using a regular oven because the weather is hot and you know that using an oven or cooking on the stove makes the house even hotter. Crockpots do not heat the house up like ovens do or like stove cooking does.
7. Crockpots use less electricity than the oven, which means you can save money on electricity. A crockpot actually uses about the same amount of electricity as a light bulb. You can save money on your food bill as well, since cheap cuts of meat come out beautifully in the slow cooker.
8. Potluck suppers are simplified if you have a crockpot. You can warm sauces or dips in the crockpot or cook cocktail meatballs and take them to the party still in the cooker or in the removable liner.
9. You can keep food warm until dinnertime in your slow cooker. Some models have a keep warm setting and will automatically switch to it when the food has finished cooking. This is great if you have a big family and some might be home later than the others.
10. Crockpot recipes are often more flavorful and tender than recipes cooked by other methods. A crockpot cooks a meal in its own juices, maximizing flavor. This also allows for healthy crockpot recipes, since you do not have to add any fats or oils to many crockpot recipes. You can make a roast in the crockpot and it will be tender enough to fall apart when you try to cut it. If you want to make roasts, getting an oval shaped crockpot is a good idea.
