The general term for this Kitchen appliance is called the slow cooker. The Crock-pot was some sort of trademark used in the North Americas and other countries in the world.
The slow cooker has become a kitchen household favorite because it has the unique ability to create delicious meals without the hassle.
You can literally set it and forget it.
And a lot of people do that. They prepare the meal before going to work in the morning, let it run and slow cook their meal for hours. And when the cooking time is done, it switches automatically into the warm setting.
By the time they would come home, the meals have been deliciously cooked and are ready to serve.
When slow cooking, it’s important that you consider the temperature to be at least 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Cooking it lower than this temperature can lead to serious safety concerns and issues.
Just in case you’re wondering how to use a slow cooker, it’s actually quite easy. Just add all the ingredients that you want. Just add meat (or potatoes, vegetables or chicken), set it to run for a few hours, leave it and when it’s ready you’ll know because it will change to the warm setting.
