Crockpot VS Stove Top Cooking

Updated on January 13, 2013


Crockpot VS Stove Top Cooking

For me, I am all for cooking in the crockpot. I get the preparations done and pop them in the crockpot. I pick whether I want them to cook for a long time (low) or a short period of time (high) and let it do all the cooking. I come home that afternoon or evening and I have a meal waiting for me to serve to my family. Couldn't have it any better than that.

Added reasons for liking the crockpot are: I don't have to worry about my meal burning because I got sidetracked by the computer. I can go grocery shopping and not worry about what I am going to have to cook for my family when I get home all tired.

      I love cooking in the crockpot when I do cook. My husband does most of the cooking! I'm lucky.

      I'm all for crockpot cooking! Since lazy and easy are my of making meals, the crockpot works great!

      Crock pot cooking saves energy and doesn't heat up the kitchen. It's a different type of cooking, but even while you're learning you won't make an inedible meal!

    No way, Monkeybrain! Cooking On The Stove Top Is The Best Way.

        I don't crock cook very often but more so in the winter when I want a filling stew or chili or similar. Being retired, I don't have a time crunch, so sometimes it's just a matter of how much work and attention I want to devote to a meal.

        First let me say that I do love Crockpot cooking, but most of the time I think stove top or oven baked actually tastes better. For example, I often make roasts in the crockpot because it is easy and good. But if I want a GREAT pork pot roast I slow cook it on the stovetop! (Someday I'll make a lens with my recipe!)

      Cooking On The Stove Top

      Thumbs Down All The Way

      When I cook on the stove top, I get distracted easily and our food tends to get burned. My family doesn't like burned food and neither do I. There are some things to be honest that cook better on the stove top like bacon and eggs but for a family lunch or supper it is crockpot all the way. This is what my stove looks like when I am cooking on a stove top.
