If one crock cooker is good, two is better. How many times has a recipe gone beyond the capacity of one crock cooker? How many times has a holiday meal not had enough burners to do all the side dishes at once?
No More Overflows
The tendency is to fill the crock cooker right up to the brim. This doesnâ€™t give the cooker any room to breathe, so it overflows. What a mess that makes, and it doesnâ€™t smell good at all. With two crock cookers, each can be filled half way or even three-quarters of the way with plenty of breathing room. The cookers stay clean and the kitchen smells delicious, not burned. The food will turn out better too.
Two Side Dishes at Once
Crock cookers donâ€™t take up very much counter space, and two of them can be set side-by-side. During the holidays, this allows for two side dishes to be cooking at once without taking up a single burner on the stove. This is also a good way to go for regular meals too, allowing for more variety while giving all the advantages of crock cooking.
Buy Them Together
Crock cookers are very inexpensive these days if all they do is slow cook with a high and low setting. The fancier cookers can be expensive, but they do about the same thing. Two inexpensive cookers of the same make and model might differ in their temperatures when set on low for all-day cooking. One can be marked as the hotter cooker and used accordingly for meat recipes, while the cooler cooker can do the vegetables. Itâ€™s just the luck of the draw if the cookers are not exactly matched. Usually the difference isnâ€™t enough to return one. Anyway, thatâ€™s just asking for a whole crock full of frustration. Adjusting to the differences is probably an easier way to handle the situation. After all, people once did slow cooking on a wood-burning stove!
