I’m sure you know what a crock-pot is so, if you don’t mind, I’m going to skip the long introduction. Now, when it comes to this useful thingy, there is no heated debate – you are either a proud, happy owner, or a proud, happy owner-to-be. I fall into the first category, so let me tell you why I love it so much:

Anybody using a crock-pot will tell you this is the first and the most obvious of its many benefits. One of the things I hate about regular cooking is having to be around the stove all the time! That means that, if I want to cook something really special or I’ve made a mistake and picked some of the tough meats, I can say goodbye to the next 2-3 hours of my day. However, his majesty, the crock-pot, doesn’t require any looking-over. Just throw the food inside, turn it on and come back after an hour or two. Or, if you have a fancy version that automatically switches to “keep warm” mode, you don’t have to bother to check it until you get hungry!
