Who doesn’t love creating delicious meals with minimal prep & total hands-off cooking? And, there is no better smell than coming home from a day at work to a flavorful meal simmering in the kitchen!
It’s time to get cooking and here are 4 key reasons to use your slow cooker ASAP!
- It is a one-pot wonder – Do you dread those dinners that use 4 different pots & pans plus 3 cutting boards plus 7 different utensils to prep? Which means you’ll be doing dishes for at least 30 minutes after dinner! With a slow cooker, there is no need to scrub several dishes. In most cases, you’ll only have to wash the slow cooker!
- It is a huge time saver – #throwandgo & #setitandforgetit are what makes the slow cooker famous! Convenience is what most individuals seek out from this kitchen tool. A slow cooker can usually be left unattended all day for many recipes. You can easily put ingredients into the slow cooker before going to work and then come home to a hot meal. It is a fabulous choice for those extra busy days filled with appointments, kids’ practices, work deadlines, or meetings.
- It is great for the novice chef – New to cooking? Everyone can master a slow cooker meal! Remember, nearly all the ingredients in the recipes are added at the same time. Maybe you need to stir once or drain liquid at the end, but that is it! Place the lid on and leave it… and then impress your friends and family with your delicious and flavorful meal after cooking on low for 6-8 hours.
- It makes meal prep achievable – Have you thought about meal prepping weekly lunches and dinners, but feel overwhelmed by the time commitment? Think again! Your slow cooker should be a routine tool for your meal prepping endeavors. You can easily throw chicken & vegetables into the cooker and have an easy lunch for work all week.
