The Power of the Crock Pot

Rate This

It seems so old fashioned. In fact, it seems archaic, like something someone's grandmother used in the "old country" before we had refrigerators. The crock pot, the one-pot-that-does-it-all, the magical, mysterious machine that turns on, tunes in, and turns out an incredible meal with no thought other than a simple recipe and throwing some stuff into it.
What is it and why on earth should you care? For one thing, a crock pot is, simple and old-fashioned and quaint as it may seem, a modern marvel with no rival, a friend to busy people everywhere, and chance at a wholesome meal (or five) at the end of a hectic day.

As the days get shorter and chillier, crock pot cooking has its definite cozy-making advantages.
The beauties and wonders of crock pot cooking are many but the ones that spring to mind immediately are the following:
* convenience: Once you have your recipes and ingredients you simply load up the crock pot and plug it in. How much more convenient could that be?
* heat - your crock pot will not heat up the kitchen which, in the summer, can save hours of awkward sweating
* the food is cooked so slowly that, unlike your rapid fire quasi-stir-fry concoctions, the results are astoundingly delicious, the meat and vegetable tender as can be, the flavors simmering together in wondrous, slow-cooked harmony.
