A Crock-Pot might be the most versatile home kitchen appliance. Soups, stews, chili, roasts...there is almost no limit to what can be cooked in a slow cooker. These appliances save time and effort, making it easy for working families to enjoy healthy home-cooked meals on weeknights instead of just fast food and frozen dinners. Plus, slow cookers make an entire meal using only a single pot.
One selection offered by Crock-Pot is the programmable slow cooker. These are ideal for working parents, because if work runs late, dinner is sitting patiently waiting. Simply assemble the ingredients the evening or morning before, and set the time and temperature before leaving for work. No matter how long work lasts, the slow cooker cooks the food for the length of time and temperature called for by the recipe. It then holds food warm and ready for whatever hour the family returns ready for dinner.
Many modern kitchens are decorated in chrome, so chrome slow cookers are offered to fit nicely into the décor of the kitchen. If the slow cooker will be left on the counter for frequent use, or displayed prominently when guests are over, this makes a nice, neat, matched look in the kitchen.
Often, foods cooked in the slow cooker are not going to be eaten at home. So, Crock-Pot offers warmers so the food can be reheated and kept warm at family reunions, picnics, wedding receptions and office get-togethers. Simply cook the food in the slow cooker and transfer it to the warmer to take along, so it's ready whenever the meal is served.
Lots of people like meats to have a browned taste and flavor. This is easy to achieve, even if cooking in the slow cooker. Simply braise already thawed meat in a skillet before placing in the slow cooker. Then add the rest of the ingredients. There's no reason to alter the cooking time or temperature when adding braised meats to the slow cooker. Braising simply browns the exterior of the meat to seal in juices and flavor, the meat isn't actually cooked.
