Book Description

Slow-cookers are a great complement to today’s busy lifestyles. Once the ingredients are added, the virtually meal cooks itself. This collection brings together a huge number and variety of recipes that show off the value, ease, and versatility — not to mention delicious taste — of this cooking method. Seasoned cookbook author Sue Spitler covers every aspect of using slow-cookers. The book explains the various kinds and sizes of cookers, from 1-1/2 quarts to seven quarts, and shows what recipes work best in each type. From there, readers learn to prepare all the necessary ingredients beforehand so that they can refrigerate the food and the crock for anywhere from hours to overnight and then plug the appliance in when it's time to cook. Included are more than a thousand scrumptious recipes — all thoroughly tested — for appetizers, entrees, side dishes, breads, sandwiches, and desserts.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is excellent! November 4, 2008
By anyana
Format:Paperback
This is the second book I have bought in the '1001 Recipes' series, and I haven't been disappointed with either one! The recipes in this slow cooker book are delicious, and they are broken down into well-organized chapters. I especially like that there are two chapters for vegetarian recipes...there is something for everyone! Though not explicitly advertised as a low-fat book, this book has recipes that have an aim to be healthy and lower in fat and calories. Every recipe has nutritional information, which is very helpful. I think that the only thing I would change about the book would be to add a breakfast chapter. Other than that, great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great tasting and easy December 17, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We just started to make Crock Pot, slow cooker, meals to take advantage of the money and time savings. We both work long hours and really need to have dinner ready soon after getting home. This book contains a truly wide variety of recipes covering all meals (and dessert). We have tried a number of the dinner selections and have been very happy with all of them. Thumbing through the book, we are sure the ones we haven't gotten to yet will be just as satisfying. Excellent choice for people who have never tried slow cooking. Well thought out with a nice variety.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you like stews... March 10, 2009
Format:Paperback
If you like to eat stews and soups, then this is the book for you. There are definitely 1,001 recipes, but about 70% of those recipes are stews and soups. The sad thing is that there are a few recipes that are exactly the same except for one or two ingredients (say with carrots and potatoes or withouot). Good for a first-timer who has no imagination. But if you thought you would be getting variety with 1,001 different recipes, look for another book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this cookbook! December 23, 2008
Format:Paperback
My son gave us a slow cooker and some cookbooks to start me off on new culinary adventures, and this is my favorite one so far. It's loaded with easy to put together recipes and excellent nutrition information. Although not a "healthy" or "low fat" cookbook specifically, a lot of the recipes are healthy and nutritious, or have healthy options. And salt is always added last and only to taste. No cream of mushroom soup recipes here. The slow cooker I got is Hamilton Beach 33134 3-in-1 Slow Cooker with 2-, 4-, and 6-Quart Crocks and it's great.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version alert January 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just purchased this and haven't made any of the recipes yet. I want to alert Kindle users to the fact that the nutritional information is provided in a large block, which takes up almost as much space as the recipe. For some recipes, this info takes an entire page, so you have to scroll through an entire page of the nutritional info from one recipe to get to the next recipe. What this means is that the recipes are oddly laid out because of all the space taken up by these blocks of nutritional info. I think this distracts from the usability of the Kindle version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Relies too much on canned foods December 17, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found that a significant number of recipes in this book rely on canned foods. Anyone can throw a couple of canned beans and veggies together and call it soup. I was a bit disappointed with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for pros or newbies December 23, 2010
By Ellie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been looking online for years to get new ideas for making dinner in the slow cooker. I needn't tell anyone who's tried it that almost every recipe calls for canned soups or onion soup packets. Although we buy our share of chips and cookies, with 5 kiddos, I do try to prepare healthy meals with real ingredients, and with this book I can!
I know one reviewer was disappointed at the number of soup and stew recipes, but I'm thrilled! I can roast meat and bake potatoes just fine, but to get meal prep out of the way AND have everything required for nutrition in one pot is A-OK with me.
Most recipes call for low sodium broth, in keeping with the "good for you" aspect. The marvelous thing is that if you're a new cook, the recipe's right there. For me, it's fun to get ideas...pick and choose parts of recipes to make something new I know my entire family will love.
There are also recipes for non crock pot additions to meals like mashed potatoes and rices.
Nutrition information is included with each recipe, in addition to Weight Watchers exchange units, for those who may be interested in that. Add to that all 4 types of vegetarian cooking and I cannot imagine anything's been omitted--not even breads and desserts.
I haven't tried breads, being blessed with a bread machine, nor desserts, being blessed with 4 daughters who all love to bake, but I will soon just out of curiosity.

All in all it's a winner, especially for the price. I thought of the Kindle version, but still love to thumb through a "real" cookbook. Can't wait to try some new meals!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yummy-yummy-yum-yum! July 31, 2009
Format:Paperback
I don't do the cooking in our household and I don't count carbs or things like that - which explains why most the recipes in this scrumptious book won't be made in my house.

Sigh.

My favorite chapter was the 51 pages of meat stews. All of them sound delicious. There is little concession here to eating super-healthy. And gourmands who use only fresh grown ingredients will definitely not like this book. But for those of us who enjoy filling, tasty meals - this book is a slice of Heaven.

All of the recipes are designed with time and convenience in mind. There are no sophisticated techniques here. Somoe of the recipes are a tiny bit adventurous, like beef, cabbage, potato and rice stew.

There are seven (!) chapters of soups, chowders and chilis. Some them sound like they would be quite tasty.

In all, 16 chapters cover meat, poultry, fish and seafood and vegetarian stews, side dishes and other entrees, appetizers, breads and sandwiches and desserts.

For anyone with a slow-cooker or, as it more commonly known, a crock-pot, this is a recipe paradise. Our crock-pot is used more days than not. Now I guess I just have to do some begging to get one or two of those wonderful beef stews on the menu!

The book has one small omission: there isn't a single photo of any of these mouth watering recipes.
