Crockpot, or multicooker, is a device that can cook meals independently, without using kitchen stove. It is powered by electricity, and does not need your constant control for performance. Here is how a crockpot works: you put into it all the ingredients of the soup or whatever else you want to cook, close it, set the timer, turn it on, and just leave it.
You are able not only to go to another room and do something else, but you can actually leave for office and come back home in the evening. The crockpot will never overheat or burn down, because it has the timer function.
You can use it two ways. One option is to turn it on in the morning, and leave it. The multicooker will cook the meal, and turn itself off. When you are back home after work, you will already have the meal prepared, and will only have to heat it up if it is a bit cool for your taste. But the multicooker also acts as a thermos, so you are unlikely to get a cold meal.
Another option that most people prefer to use with the multicooker is to put all the ingredients inside in the morning, set the timer on the time not long before they are back home, and leave. At the time indicated, the crockpot turns on, cooks the meal, and it is prepared exactly when you are back home and hungry.
Now you see how a crockpot can save you tons of time you used to waste on cooking early in the morning, or immediately after you come back home from the office. There are also other reasons to buy a multicooker:
- it is pretty affordable and does not cost like a spaceship, but the benefits you get are paid off already in a month.
- most multicookers are well-designed and do not take much space in the kitchen – not more than a usual pan.
- a crockpot can actually replace a bunch of other kitchen equipment like steamer or yogurt maker.
- it also saves your time for cleaning. Instead of washing several pots and pans, you wash only one. In addition, it cooks all meals being closed, so you do not need to clean the splashes of hot oil from the table or walls.
As you can see, multicooker is a very handy tool that will save you both energy and time!
