Advantages of a crock pot

Crockpots are great cooking appliances as they enable easy cooking and also have scores of other benefits.

Additional appliance: While hosting a party you can use the crock pot for making slow cooking dishes and thus free some space on the cook top or oven.

Prevents burning of food: As the heat generated from the heating coils is very low, chances of food getting burnt is very bleak.

Time saver: You can place the food to be cooked for dinner right in the morning while leaving for work and come back home for a hearty meal.

Lesser utensils to be cleaned: Number of utensils to be cleaned is reduced as a single pot serves the purpose.

Improves flavor: As the food is cooked for a long time on a low flame, the flavor improves.


Crockpot cooking tips


  • Choose crock pots with removable crock as this makes for easier cleaning.

  • Ensure that you have a transparent lid to cover the crock pot. You can keep a check on the cooking process without lifting the lid regularly and thereby losing heat.

Crock pot cooking recipe tips


  • To cook vegetables like potatoes, carrots and onions faster, they have to be placed just under the meat and right at the base of the crock pot.

  • While buying roasts or any variety of large cut meat, ensure they fit into your crock pot. Else trim them to fit your crock pot.

  • Due to the long cooking process in crock pot, food items tend to lose their color. Garnish with freshly cut parsley, red peppers, cheese, tomatoes, chives and herbs.

  • Before cooking in a crock pot, remove the skin from poultry and trim extra fat from other meat products.

  • Check seasoning after cooking in crock pots as they tend to weaken flavors because of the long cooking period. Season the food according to your requirements before serving. Add seasoned salt, garlic powder, seasoned pepper and other herbs and spices at the end of cooking.
