Does the size of your Crockpot matter?

Does the size of your Crockpot matter??? This is a common question I get all the time from my family and friends. Do you know the answer???

love cooking with my crockpots. I have such a busy schedule with my three boys that it helps for me to plan my dinners according to what activities the boys have through the week. If I can use my crockpot to make dinner then that’s a huge plus for me!

Does the size of your Crockpot matter:

So back to answering the question — Does the size matter? The answer is YES and NO. You want to use the crock pot that is going to be adequate for what you are cooking. For your meal to cook properly you need to make sure the crock pot you are using is at least 3/4 full with your ingredients or liquid. So if your preparing a side dish then you may want to use a smaller crock pot. If you are making a large roast with a lot of veggies then you may want something larger. But as long as you make sure it is 3/4 or more full then your meal should cook just right.

This is always a mistake people make when it comes to using a slow cooker. You want to be sure that you use one that fits the ingredients that you are cooking. Another question we get asked all of the time. Is a slow cooker and crock pot the same thing? YES! Crockpot is actually a brand of slow cooker. Hope this helps!

Here are some of my favorite Crockpot meals:

Crock Pot Baked Potatoes
Crockpot Apple Butter
Crockpot Bacon Cheese Potatoes
Crockpot Breakfast Casserole
Crockpot Pizza Casserole
Crockpot Pumpkin Spice Lattes
Sweetened Crockpot Macaroni and Cheese
