A slow cooker, also known as a crock-pot, is a countertop electrical cooking appliance.

It cooks at a lower temperature than other methods of cooking such as baking, boiling, and frying.

This allows for unattended cooking of dishes that would otherwise be boiled for many hours.

Pot roast, soups, stews, and other dishes, including beverages, desserts, and dips are only a few examples.

Many slow cooker recipes are designed primarily for ease of preparation. These recipes use few ingredients and frequently make use of prepared sauces or seasonings.
