10 Reasons to Own a Slow Cooker

  1. Slow cookers are the easiest way to a hot meal on a cold day.
  2. You can make a huge variety of soups and stews with little to no work on your own part. That's right, no slaving over a stove until your arm is sore from stirring.
  3. The flavors of your ingredients meld and mellow in a way only slow cooking allows.
  4. It's economical. The longer cooking time means you can use the cheaper cuts and still get perfect, pull-apart tender meat.
  5. When you come home after a long day of work, school, etc., your house will smell wonderful.
  6. Dinner is ready when you get home. Since you threw everything in the slow cooker in the morning, you've maximized your relaxation time as well as the tastiness of your supper.
  7. Slow cooker recipes usually make things in larger quantities. Which means leftovers. Which means less cooking throughout the week with the guarantee of yummy meals.
  8. You can invite people over for dinner on a whim without stressing (hey, it's already cooking!) and hugely impress them with your tasty fare.
  9. Slow cookers (at least all the new models) are extremely easy to clean.
  10. It's remarkably easy to adapt all sorts of recipes for the slow cooker.
