Got a crockpot as a gift, explain this magical device to me.
Is it true that you leave raw ingredients and cone back to finished meals?
Yeah she's hot like a twelve year old. Gets the job done eventually. You gotta fill her up (mine is Betty) with all your stuff at one time, then pour your chicken stock or vegetable soup or whatever on top of it, and let it sit for about 5 hours until the meat isn't rawed.
Sort of. Depends on the recipe.
I have a rice cooker with pressure cook, slow cook, searing and multi-cook options, so it does everything yours can do and more. I use the slow cook option mostly to make the filling for meat buns.
If you said something like "shapeless slop," I couldn't disagree, but there's no way curry brisket tastes like onion gravy chicken.
