Slow Cooker Conversions

slower cooker time conversions chart


  1. I'd like to know what you think is the best large slow cooker on the market. I have had to replace the one I had for years because of an irreplaceable stone pot insert.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! In respose to your question, I personally really like the "Crock Pot" brand. For the following reasons;
      1) Removable oval stoneware
      2) Includes lid mounted locking system
      3) Stoneware and lid are both dishwasher safe

      *For the brand you select, make sure it has the little hole in the lid for steam to come out. Since the lid clamps down, it's great for transporting if you take it to an event or party. That's what I like about it the most. The older models don't have that little hole and are not safe because they build up pressure when lid is clamped down. The removable ceramic insert makes it really convenient to clean. One IMPORTANT piece of advice; when putting the ceramic pot into the frig or for cleaning with cold water, allow ample time for it to gradually cool down so that the temperature change from hold to cold does not crack the pot. Here is a picture if you need to see what it looks like. http://www.farmandfleet.com/catalog/image.aspx?i=740137

  2. Awesome information! Thank you so much. :)

  3. This is a fabulous tool. Thanks!

  4. Thank you for this tool! I am addicted to my slow cooker in the winter mostly because I am lazy and it keeps me from forgetting to take something out for dinner.

  5. I'm confused,on your conversions. Can you break it down in lay mens terms. Are these the amount of hours opposed to cooking on a stove??? sorry.
