Crock-Pot is a name to conjure with. The home of the original slow cooker and still the leader in its field. It all started for them in 1970 with a simple but clearly well designed bean cooker. Over many decades later they have sold millions of their slow cookers and that will not drop off. For them a perfect way to cook food using an affordable product that produces nutrititious and delicious meals has been their watchword.
Over many years the Crock-Pot has become more energy efficient and with it a vast range of recipes to suit all tastebuds. generally it’s about prepping your ingredients, popping them into a stoneware pot and setting the timer for anywhere between 4 and 10 hours. It is the ideal slow-cooked meal and is waiting for you when you get home. we don’t apologise for lifting any of the statements made because it’s worth.
We have tried the digital slow cookers in the past. In a generic sense they all seem to come in glossy black and a range of sizes to serve a small to large family. [You can get other colours but black always seem sophisticated to me]. The one that is worth trying is designed for about five or six folks. They always have a couple of sturdy handles which makes them ideal for lifting from a cupboard to a work surface. The lid being attached means it wont come away or drop off. We lost one with a rival product so that is a benefit in itself. By the way, get a glass lid because you can at least see what is cooking for a start !
The digital display panel is straightforward although that interface looks a bit daunting at first. The instruction manual that came with the pot was easy to understand and follow and there is also plenty of information available on their web-site too. The functions are extremely handy to follow – a timer function and a digital display which is big enough to see in the dark of a gloomy kitchen and it means you can see how long is left.
Look for the CSC052 which is 4.7 litres and a classic black if you are buying in Europe.
In the USA, most are now bought online but in the UK you can get these from John Lewis.
