The slow cooker is the ultimate kitchen tool, especially for people who want to prepare hearty home-cooked meals but don’t quite have the time to actually do it. As its name suggests, a slow cooker slowly cooks your food over considerably low heat for several hours without the risk of anything drying up or burning.
The best thing about slow cookers is that you won’t have to move your schedule around to cook dinner. All you have to do is toss all your ingredients into the pot, turn the heat on, and leave it alone while you’re out and about during the day. You’ll be greeted by a perfectly cooked, wonderfully warm meal as soon as you get home!
