I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of recipes and easy understanding that this book presented. I will admit, I was a novice when it came to cooking this way. However, this book has made me confident and excited to try cooking wings, hot cocoa, fish, and many other things I would have never thought to try in my slow cooker at home. This guide is the perfect tool for any busy food lover.

Crock pot cooking has definitely been taken to a whole new level in this new recipe book. This is not your traditional crock pot recipe book completely filled with pot roast and stew recipes. Who would have thought you could make tasty meals such as braised Asian beef, Mediterranean lamb, and lemon and garlic halibut in a crock pot! This book is defiantly a modern twist on traditional cooking and a must have for anybody looking for fun and easy cooking ideas.

This book has more than just recipes for the usual slow cooker soup and stew options. It has recipes for breakfast, desserts and drinks as well. The first chapter contains helpful “getting started” sections that can be useful for those new to the slow cooking arena. This is a great book for a nice range of slow cooking options with many simple, easy recipes.

This cookbook has a lot to offer. It explains how a slow cooker is an excellent choice for working individuals. The best part is that you can throw in the ingredients before work and come home to a meal ready to go. The American favorites section makes cooking meatloaf and old fashioned beef stem much easier. The Slow Cooker Cookbook is a must have for working men and women.

This book gets the creative cooking juices flowing! Somewhat repetitive wording in the intro, but I would still recommend it. Never would have thought you could do so much with a slow cooker.

This collection of recipes really shows how much you can do with a crock pot.  There are a lot of soup and stew recipes, but also things like eggplant parmesan and vegetable gratin. There is even a dessert and warm drinks section. There is a fish and seafood section too, with caveats about shorter cooking time and what kinds work best. All in all, this is a good reference for getting a lot of use out of your slow cooker. cooker needs is a high and low setting and a lid. I feel like I can just buy a basic slow cooker, and I don’t have to spend hours researching which one is best.

Amidst the hundreds of recipe books designed to stream line your day and end with a hot meal comes another slow cooker cookbook. The Slow Cooker Cookbook is a compilation of recipes designed to make the average person feel like they can cook when in reality they are just tossing everything in a pot and pressing heat. The recipes in general are undemanding; the ingredients used are easy to find in any market and the end results are what you would expect to see on every Sunday dinner table. As a whole, The Slow Cooker Cookbook is great for putting together an ordinary meal for those looking to simplify an overly busy life.

I have had a slow cooker for a long time but hardly ever used it because it was always the same old recipes. I love soup and these recipes are delicious especially the Butternut Squash Soup. The cold weather is coming and I will be ready – my family already likes the Pulled-Pork Barbecue…so I can’t wait to try more.

Breakfast and Dessert in a Slow-Cooker?  I Love it!! This amazing book showed me how versatile my slow cooker can really be!  Breakfast in a slow cooker?  The Classic Strata makes an amazing breakfast, and the best thing is waking up on a busy school morning and not having to rush more to get the family fed! I had also never considered making side dishes in the slow cooker.  I used it at Thanksgiving to make the Southern-Style Green Beans, and it was just one less dish I had to mess with that day.  And of course, I must mention dessert in the slow cooker- awesome! The Hot Fudge Cake is so, so good, and my whole family really loves the Spiced Pear Crumble.

This book is excellent for those on at all levels of skills in the kitchen. The recipes are easy to follow if you do not have the time or inclination to cook—many have prep times that can even be shortened, if need be. But they can also be expanded upon if you have the time and want to experiment. The recipes provide a great base to expand culinary options.

Owners of slow cookers will enjoy this collection of recipes designed for home chefs looking for easy meals. It does branch out to include some international type dishes as well as desserts and drinks which adds some variety. But the lack of photos is a detriment and the meals themselves may be a too simple for non-novices.

These slow-cookers were ubiquitous in the 70s, all of the kids in my age group had one on the counter. Everybody knew they were  good for stews and chili, but who knew you could make chicken pot pie? Or lasagna? Or barbecue pulled pork? Great book for the novice, with early chapters on general techniques for using slow-cookers.

Yummy! A great assortment of recipes, all extremely easy with a good mix of seasonal (summer, fall) meals. I never thought of making dessert in a crockpot, but this cookbook made me question that – several cobblers and bread puddings look tasty. It would be nice if pictures were provided, though. Maybe a suggestion for the next edition.

I had no real inclination to purchase a slow cooker - I’ve eaten food prepared in one before, but I thought only certain dishes could be cooked in it, and therefore, it wouldn’t be worth the investment. This book has completely changed my view. The guides on how to use and choose a slow cooker are incredibly helpful, and the recipe ideas look both delicious and relatively simple to make. I’m now inspired to buy a slow cooker of my own!

Slow cooking magic.  This book will make you dust off your old kitchen appliance and look at meal preparation in a completely new light. From international dishes to making fish and seafood meals, there are plenty of ideas to keep your slow cooker out of storage and on your counter. The strawberry rhubarb white chocolate crumble recipe is reason enough to give this cookbook a try.
