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.

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.
