Crockpots With Programming
My Wish List
If you read my hubs, you know that I have posted several recipes for the crockpot. Many of my weekly dinners are prepared with the aid of this valuable tool. I have cooked for many years and am a fair cook, but when I use the crockpot, the meal tastes so much better!
The slow cooker is perfect for chicken, stews, soups, roasts, sauces, and even candies. Yes, there are recipes for almost any dish you might want to make. I am still experimenting with my meals and hope to perfect many more in the coming months. Practice does make perfect, doesn't it?
I don't have a fancy crockpot. My pots have two settings, low and high. They are sufficient for my needs for now. With two similar crockpots on my pantry shelf, I don't have room to store another one! One advantage of the programmable version of the slow cooker is the automatic temperatures programming. My wish list includes a programmable crockpot to replace one of the simpler versions I currently use. Mother's Day, my birthday, and Christmas aren't far away!
Why use a simple version when the programmable crockpot is so reasonably priced. We have been updating our kitchen appliances this year. Our coffee maker was replaced at Christmas and so was our teapot. The microwave and toaster oven are next. Perhaps a new crockpot will complete the list!:)
I don't care about the color or style. There are two things I will look for in a programmable crock pot. One is the ease of cleaning. I don't want to scrub unnecessarily. Second, I want an easily programmable pot. If it is too complicated, I won't use it. It will be nice to set my dinner on high for about three hours and then simmer it automatically until dinner!
I made a New Years Resolution in January. I told myself that I would enjoy cooking dinner most evenings and we would eat out less! I am still working on the "enjoyment" part. I keep coming back to the fact that if I start dinner in the crockpot in the morning, dinner is not a burden for me. A side dish or two added to the main course and dinner is served! BON APPETITE!
A CROCK POT FOR YOUR HOME!
