How to select a Crock-Pot

The technological advances made in the last decade have touched just about every industry. From smart phones to electric cars, people are discovering the conveniences of modern technology. If you have a busy lifestyle trying to balance work, home, and family life, you have probably taken advantage of the many kitchen gadgets to help make life easier. The way that technology aids in the kitchen is amazing. Using slow cookers and crock-pots are wonderful way to save time and money, while maintaining your healthy eating regimen. With all the many choices in crock-pots available, it may be difficult to decide which one is best for you. To help assist you in the purchasing process, we've developed a buying guide. By asking yourself the following three questions, you can determine which crock-pot fits your needs.

Do you plan to use the crock-pot when you're not home?
Most people will probably want the ability to cook meals while they're away. If this is the case with you, then you need a crock-pot with programmable capabilities. Chances are you won't arrive home exactly as planned every time. Without a programmable feature, you may come home to overcooked soup or burnt meat. Of course, most crock-pots have a programmable feature, but there are a few that don't. So, be sure to check if that's important to you. However, for those who don't plan on using the crock-pot when they're not home, you can get them for a little less money. Some people may already have a main crock-pot and just want an additional one for holiday gatherings.

Do you want your crock-pot to do more than one thing?
Several years ago this wouldn't have been much of a question, but now newer models can do a lot more than just heat up your soup or stew. For example, the Corsori Programmable Multi-Cooker not only has a slow-cooking function, it steams, cooks rice, sautes, bakes cakes, fries eggs, and serves as a pressure cooker too! The entire cooker includes 17 smart programs, so you just select what you want it to do and it's done. You could potentially use this one cooker for most of your cooking needs. Of course, you're going to pay a price to match the features, but for many people the convenience is worth it. However, if you don't need the extras, you can save on the cost by getting a regular slow-cooker.

Do you want a crock-pot to take out?
If you want a crock-pot you can take with you when you attend get-togethers, picnics, or parties, then you may want to consider a different type of crock-pot. For one thing, you won't want the lid popping off while taking it in your vehicle. A crock-pot with extra sealing power around the lid is helpful or clips that snap the top in place is even more secure for traveling. Another thing that will be important for handling the crock-pot is carefully positioned handles so it is easy to carry. Some of the crock-pots that offer so much in the way of smart technology, such as the multi-cooker, do not have carrying handles. So, this is something to look for if you need a crock-pot to take to gatherings. Some of the "to go" crock-pots are made for parties with decorative designs for a festive look. Other crock-pots slide out of the base and set on the table making it a stand-alone serving dish, as well.

With all the many crock-pot options, you are sure to find the one that suits your needs. If you need something that will handle multiple tasks then you may want to consider a multi-cooker. For simple tasks like making soups, stews, or casseroles, you need a one-function crock. Then, for those who like to take a crock-pot full of food to get-togethers, the cook and carry model will work best for them. Finally, there are some crock-pots that combine features together.
