Slow-cookers are a great complement to today’s busy lifestyles. Once the ingredients are added, the virtually meal cooks itself. This collection brings together a huge number and variety of recipes that show off the value, ease, and versatility not to mention delicious taste of this cooking method. Seasoned cookbook author Sue Spitler covers every aspect of using slow-cookers. The book explains the various kinds and sizes of cookers, from 1-1/2 quarts to seven quarts, and shows what recipes work best in each type. From there, readers learn to prepare all the necessary ingredients beforehand so that they can refrigerate the food and the crock for anywhere from hours to overnight and then plug the appliance in when it's time to cook. Included are more than a thousand scrumptious recipes all thoroughly tested for appetizers, entrees, side dishes, breads, sandwiches, and desserts.

This is the second book I have bought in the '1001 Recipes' series, and I haven't been disappointed with either one! The recipes in this slow cooker book are delicious, and they are broken down into well-organized chapters. I especially like that there are two chapters for vegetarian recipes...there is something for everyone! Though not explicitly advertised as a low-fat book, this book has recipes that have an aim to be healthy and lower in fat and calories. Every recipe has nutritional information, which is very helpful. I think that the only thing I would change about the book would be to add a breakfast chapter. Other than that, great book!
If you like to eat stews and soups, then this is the book for you. There are definitely 1,001 recipes, but about 70% of those recipes are stews and soups. The sad thing is that there are a few recipes that are exactly the same except for one or two ingredients (say with carrots and potatoes or withouot). Good for a first-timer who has no imagination. But if you thought you would be getting variety with 1,001 different recipes, look for another book.
We just started to make Crock Pot, slow cooker, meals to take advantage of the money and time savings. We both work long hours and really need to have dinner ready soon after getting home. This book contains a truly wide variety of recipes covering all meals (and dessert). We have tried a number of the dinner selections and have been very happy with all of them. Thumbing through the book, we are sure the ones we haven't gotten to yet will be just as satisfying. Excellent choice for people who have never tried slow cooking. Well thought out with a nice variety.
