Aha ha ha ha no no no no. This is the anti-slow-cooker book, how to use a slow-cooker in the worst way possible. For 1 recipe I counted 7 pans that were used for 1 slow-cooker meal. SEVEN PANS TO BE WASHED. There is a time and place for fussy meals, but not when you want to use your slow-cooker. Also, so many of the recipes needed attention after 3 hours, the author just doesn't get the purpose of the crock-pot, I AM NOT HOME. I laughed and laughed.

I generally associate slow cookers with fairly unsophisticated meals. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book takes crock-potting up a notch. Since I checked it out at the library last week, I've made two meals: Winter Vegetable Stew, and Spicy Red Bean and Chorizo Stew. Number three is at this moment in process in my crock pot: Short Rib Ragu.

Typical instructions for recipes include sauteeing onions and other vegetables and browning meat before putting it in the pot, and then addi

I purchased this book a while back and just recently started trying some of the recipes. To my surprise, everything was super tasty, which is what I'm basing my 4 star rating on.

With that said, there are definitely some flaws here. To begin with, many of the recipes require you to brown meats or sauté veggies before actually putting them in the crockpot, which not only takes time, but also additional pots/pans. I typically brown meats anyway before putting them into the crockpot, and now that I

The New Slow Cooker rev. (Williams-Sonoma): More than 100 Hands-off Meals to Satisfy the Whole Family Review by Gally Lines (4.5/5 stars)

The New Slow Cooker is my new favorite cookbook. Not only does everything I've made so far taste fantastic -- which hasn't been a common experience with other cookbooks -- it's lured me out of my comfort zone to try new ingredients (wine isn't just for drinking) and reintroduced me to how rich and tender slow cooker food can be.

One of the best recipe books I've read recently. Learning to better use my slow cooker and this provided good suggestions regarding optimizing flavor. Cooking completes in 3-4 hours for chicken, 6-7 hours for beef or pork so more difficult to set prior to leaving for work (will likely overcook). Perfect for weekend cooking.

This slow cooker recipe book has some wonderful recipes in it. I love the pictures that go along with the recipes. This is a well crafted recipe book.

Has far less basic info than I was hoping for but did have quite a few interesting looking recipes. Will scan a few.

Beautiful book with really yummy-looking recipes, but almost every one of them calls for wine or sherry to cook with. I know for many, many people, this makes a good recipe great; but alas, I am not one of those people. And my husband is even less fond of cooking wine than I am. I am heartbroken... Sigh....
