What is a Crock Pot?
The Crock Pot is a type of slow cooker that has the heating elements around the edge of the pot. It generally consists of three main parts the Housing, the Crock and the Lid.
The Housing is generally made of plastic or alloy with an aluminium liner containing the heating elements. Inside this sits the Crock. This is a pot made of crockery in which you place the food.
For ease of cleaning choose a Crock Pot with a removable crock. And of course the lid goes on top. Make sure you have a see thru lid, so you can see how things are progressing without lifting the lid and losing heat.
