You might have seen slow cookers and their recipes popping up in your Facebook feed recently, or perhaps you've seen them on food blogs. For a few years now, the slow cooker, also known as the crock pot, has seen a resurgence of interest. The device is hardly new, but the economic stagnation of the past few years, combined with the proliferation of creative cooking content, has built into the perfect storm of attention.
Slow cooked meals are a great way to feed the family a home cooked meal without having to stand over the stove all day. It is a wonderful thing to just be able to throw a few ingredients in a slower cooker, set the heat and timer and walk away. A slow cooker can be used to cook everything from breakfasts and dinners to desserts and even bread. Finding the right slow cooker can be a hassle, but there is one that stands out to us.
