If you’re anything like me, you have an excellent slow cooker sitting in your kitchen cupboard (which comes out for about one week each year in winter when it’s freezing), and you have a sudden need to make lots of comfort food like stews and soups.
Well, now you don’t have to feel guilty about it because I’ve found the perfect slow cooker guide with a whole lot of inventive uses that don’t involve food.
The Crock-Pot (or slow cooker) is a wonderful appliance for hands-off cooking, but the gentle, slow heating process can also be used for other things unrelated to food.
Did you know you can make soap, strip paint, clean jewellery and use it as a humidifier?
Many of these projects are crafty, and you might want a dedicated second slow cooker (perhaps picked up at a garage sale) for these purposes, such as the soap-making one. Others, however, you can just whip out your slow cooker to accomplish, clean, and then use for slow cooking food. It’s a wonderfully multi-purpose tool.
