The Best Slow Cooker

November 01, 2017

You’ll notice this is the same recommendation as my pressure cooker recommendation. The real value of a multipurpose device like the Instant Pot is the space-saving potential it has for a small New York Kitchen like mine.

A slow cooker is a great tool for a busy home chef. You can throw a lot of ingredients into the pot in the morning and set it to be ready when you get home from work.

In addition to the pressure cooker function, it also has a simple Sauté mode, which you will use because for a lot of these meat based recipes you will want to brown the meat before slow cooking. The multi-function ability of the Instant Pot to replace a traditional crock-pot, rice cooker, and pressure cooker make this the best slow cooker choice for a small kitchen like mine.
