Slow Cooker Days

Healthy home cooks are rediscovering that the slow cooker, or Crock-Pot, may be the easy answer to cooking whole grains and beans from scratch.

Everything old becomes new again. My mom always said if you lived long enough, styles would come back. The Crock-Pot, a popular 1970s kitchen appliance, is the latest new old find.

Healthy home cooks are rediscovering that the slow cooker may be the easy answer to cooking whole grains and beans from scratch. Place ingredients into the bowl of the slow cooker, turn it on, and go have some fun until they’re cooked.

There is nothing quite like walking through the door on a cold winter evening to an already-cooked dinner.

The Name Game

Crock-Pot is a registered trademark of the Rival Company. Even though most of us call them slow cookers, the concept is exactly the same: prep, assemble, turn on, and go.
