Some Tips and Tricks for your Crock-Pot or Slow Cooker

Slow cookers make a great kitchen appliance if you plan ahead. But you do need to make sure you are using it properly. Here are some tips and tricks to help you succeed.

Use the right size slow cooker

Make sure you don't fill your crockpot more than half or two thirds full. 

Save the dairy 

If you add dairy items too soon, they run the risk of coagulating and possibly burning. Add them in at the end when you have about 15-20 minutes of cook time remaining.

Brown meat first

The slow cooker may not brown your meat, so while this isn't necessary for safety reasons, it's a good idea so you can get the most flavor from your meat.

Don't peek!

Every time you open the lid you are letting the heat escape. 


Put harder vegetables like potatoes and carrots at the bottom of the crockpot so they will have more moisture and cook better. 
This crockpot is my favorite! I actually got it as a wedding present and have been using it at least weekly since the late '90s! 
Crockpots and Instant Pot's make a great gift for a newly married couple or a person just starting out. Give them some of your favorite handwritten recipes so they can easily get started and the cooking appliance will be a treasure the recipient will love. 

This is the perfect instant pot to get started with.
