How to use slow cooker?

With relatively inexpensive prices and useful applications, the slow cooker (or crockpot) is a great appliance in your kitchen. By using low heat and cooking foods for a long time, the slow cooker can bring out all the flavor inside your food without having to use expensive ingredients. Plus, the device can also soften the texture of your meats and vegetables, allowing for tenderized and juicy bites.

On top of that, with its unique method of cooking, you can start cooking in the morning and leave your food to be cooked throughout the day. And when you come home in the evening, a juicy, tender, and flavorful dish is ready for you to enjoy.

That being said, to help you find the best products, our post will provide all the main features that you could expect on your new crockpot. In additions, if you already own a slow cooker, let’s find out whether your methods of using it are correct.


What to look for with your slow cooker?

First thing first, you’ll need to pick a fine crockpot to start cooking your slow cooker recipes. With that in mind, here are the key features to have on your devices:

The sizes and shapes of the pot

You’ll need to decide whether you’re going to cook for the whole family or just yourself. Depending on the amount of food that you’ll have to cook, you can choose crockpots at different capacity.

For a family of four or more, a 6-quart crockpot is recommended as you’ll need to cook a significant amount of ingredients.

However, if you’re cooking for yourself or for a family of three or two people, having a smaller crockpot (ideally, a 4-quart one) would be more reasonable and economical.

In additions, when it comes to the shapes of the pot, there are two common types which are the oval and round crockpot.

While the round crockpot is less space-consuming and works well with soups, you’ll find the oval ones better at cooking large chunks of meats or even a whole chicken. So it pretty much depends on your preferences.

Transparent glass lid

We all have the tendency to take a peek at our cooking foods. However, little do we know, this is really inefficient as opening the pot would release a huge amount of heat. Thus, it would take a lot of time for your slow cooker to reheat.


How to use your slow cooker properly?

Even with the best of products, you would still need to know how to use them properly before you start cooking.

Sear the meats first

In every slow cooker recipe, the first thing that you’ll need to do is searing the meats first. Doing this would enrich the flavors of the meat and caramelizes the outside layer, giving your food flavorful tastes.

Orders of the ingredients

If you’re an experienced cooker, you should know that different types of food need to be placed in certain orders so they can be perfectly cooked.

That being said, for slow cookers, it’s best to put in your vegetables first, then move on to the meat, and if you want to, you can put the pre-cooked ingredients on top.

That sounds an awful lot like a website name more than a moving company name ... they may just be an online broker rather than a moving company.

You ever find any information about this company? Just doing a google search I didn't see anything come up in the first few results, which seems a little strange to me if they've been in business for any amount of time. Do you have any contact info for them that would make them easier to find/look up?

I hope this message gets to you on time. I had to wait to be registered with this site in order to answer.

DO NOT use Cross Country Movers. I am dealing with their mess right now. I will never use a broker again. I will write more details later, but wanted to get this message to you now. I wish I would have just paid the extra money and hired a reputable moving company.
