Recipes are easy to prepare, and absolutely delicious.

It has lots of pictures, simple directions, and the ingredients are pretty mainstream.

Format: Paperback
So many of us have slow cookers and yet so few of us get much beyond pot roasts or stews. Why is that? I think it is because we don't really understand the potential of a slow cooker and the basic cooking techniques that can enhance what you can cook in them.

This book is for everyone who has a slow cooker and wants to explore all the things you can do with it. The first ten page chapter teaches you how to best use your slow cooker, what you need to be concerned about, including how to adapt regular recipes to slow cooker recipes. You will also get really good advice on food safety, when to add various kinds of ingredients, and how to layer them in your cooker. They warn you, for example, to not have your timer start your cooker more than two hours after you put the ingredients in the pot. And never cook your meat from a frozen state. Also, if you have large roasts, cut them in half. When you should add your pasta, how you prepare ground meat for clos cooking, and how to use dry versus fresh herbs. Helpful tips, right?

Since this is The Ultimate book on slow cooking, you get recipes for things I know I never even expected could be done in a slow cooker, but once you think through the recipes they really do make sense. You get chapters on appetizers and beverages (yes, drinks such as hot chocolate, hot punches, and the like), breakfasts, soups, stews, poultry, beef & veal, pork & lamb, meals without meat, side dishes, and even desserts.

Each recipe tells you the ingredient list, the size of slow cooker the recipe is made for (so you can adjust to yours), the steps to make the dish (remember it isn't all just dump it in, turn it on, and come back 8 hours later), and nutrition information. Many of the dishes have appetizing photographs of the dish.

I was personally disappointed by this book. This cookbook is not what I would consider a homemade cookbook. The recipes call for a great deal of processed foods. This becomes a little ridiculous in places where, for instance, their recipe for split pea soup calls for 2 cans of split pea soup. While there are a few worthwhile recipes, overall this cookbook is a "semi-homemade" style cookbook. If that is the type of cookbook that you enjoy, you should be pleased with this book.

Love having the slow cooker for preparing meals AHEAD of time! It is so easy, and great to be out and about, and come home to the ready to eat dinner there! And this cookbook is outstanding! Recipes are easy to prepare, and absolutely delicious. I usually prepare them the evening before; put them in the cooker in the refrigerator, and then set it up, turn it on in the morning. The delicious aroma greets one when you open the door when you arrive home. And all you have to do is get yourself seated, and enjoy a GREAT meal!

I have made about 5 recipes from this book so far. Each time they have turned out great. Once in a while the meat seems a little dry, so I'm trying to figure out how to prevent that from happening. Each recipe has the nutritional information. I have found it very helpful.

Got my Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker along with this book that I ordered according to customer reviews & ratings. Glad I did...recipes are not cumbersome with exotic ingredients & saw things in this book that I had not imagined one could cook in a slow cooker. Glad I invested in this book. Have had other slow cooker cookbooks & was either discouraged or bored with them. This IS the BEST slow cooker cookbook!

for a guy who knew/knows very little about cooking---either slow or fast---this book spells it out so anyone can understand the ingredients and how to cook using a crock pot. Good selection of recipes, and especially strong in pot roast section.

We have used this book for the past two years. We now give it as gifts. Weither your a couple or a family, the recipes work well for large dinners and/or leftovers. It is an essential part of our winter cooking ritual and we are expanding our use of the slow cooker for other seasonal dishes.

I bought this cook book for a friend who found cooking intimidating. He has a heart condition and was eating entirely too much junk food (fast food burgers, fried chicken, etc.). So I sent him a slow cooker and this cookbook. Now he's cooking fresh and healthy food at home thanks to this book. He had no idea you could do so much without a lot of fuss. It's a good cook book :)
