  1. Batch Size

The crock-pot SCVT650 Design and Style

The crock-pot SCVT650 is well designed and very modern with its elegant oval design and a sleek touchscreen that is quick and easy to program to your needs. Because it is so well designed and looks great you don't have to hide it away so it can stay out and doesn't have to take up storage space.

The range of times that you can cook goes from a low 20 minutes right up to a whopping 20 hours! Hows that for range?

Crock Pot Review

Nice review of the crock pot.

My Top Advantages to Crock Pot Ownership

Below are my top advantages to crock pot ownership programmed or otherwise.

  1. Time

    It is so fast to put a meal together.

  2. Ready When You Get Home

    This is a big one. Sometimes you just do not feel like cooking when you get home either form a heavy day at the office or working on your allotment, just too tired.

  3. Economical

    I wasn't convinced that cooking something for 6-8 hours could be cheaper than cooking something for 2 hours. My sister has one of those gadgets that tells you how much electric you are using and it worked out about half. Added to that if you double up your recipes you can then freeze them and this will save even more time and electric costs.

  4. One Pot!

    Only one pot to clean. Yay. That speaks for itself. Note you cannot submerge some pots in water so check your cleaning guidelines before cleaning.

  5. Cooks all Sorts

    I was surprised at just what you can cook when one pot cooking

  6. Meals are Easily Adaptable

    It is easy to adapt normal recipes for one pot cooking.

The Advantages of a Programmable Crock Pot

The advantages of the programmable crock pot are that you don't have to be there to switch it off and you can have a range of times to choose from, unlike the manual ones that means you have to be back on time. so you don't overcook or end up with cold food as they also automatically switch to warn and keep your food warm for you.

There is a lot of choice of different pots. The one described here should give a good idea of what you do and do not want or need in a crock pot. There are many others with different sizes and strengths to choose from See below for a few examples.
