Slow Cooker and recipes


#1

Hi,
What do you think about this slow cooker!? https://amzn.to/2Spysnw
What books do you recomend me to beggind cooking in it?
Thank you!

I think you have to recognize that’s not exactly a slow cooker. It’s an Instant Pot. That’s an entirely different beast altogether.
Here are some references for you in pre-existing threads:
Instant Pot - Tips & Techniques
Cookware - Slow Cooker/Crock Pot

Thank you very much! :smile:

I have a slow cooker and pressure cooker and just can’t (yet) justify an Instant Pot but am interested in any comments.

If you get a slow cooker vs an instant pot–I like “Not your mother’s slow cooker cookbook”

I have an insta pot on my santa (or chanukah charlie) list for it’s lighter weight and speed.

That said? I have had had a crock pot for years and it has been a huge, low cost help.

My fav resource? https://www.ayearofslowcooking.com

She is honest, thoughtful, talented. I have her first cookbook, looked at her second? And liked the first more. And her web resources are FAB.
