 Crockpot is a trademark name-the first brand of slow cooker. It's a counter top small appliance that cooks food at a very low temperature over a number of hours.

 It cooks unattended so that you can add ingredients to the pot in the morning before work, then come home eight to 10 hours later, to a perfectly cooked meal.

A Crock-Pot never needs preheating and meals cooked in a Crock-Pot retain their juices and flavors because of the design and slow-cooking method.

Love my slow cooker! I am making beef stew in it right now. I call mine June Cleaver, because she cooks all day while I'm at work.

Crockpot is a brand name for a slow cooker. I have a Cuisinart slow cooker and love it!

 It is an awesome device that let you slow cook food, it is a great time-saver and helpful resource! I love mine for any meat that needs time to tenderize and soups.

I have one but don't use it frequently. I cook only specific things in it. I'm rather picky about crockpot meals.
