I need your help, please.
This is a real question.
I'm asking because I read about HOW FREAKING GREAT THEY ARE all the time, but I just....don't know.
I fully understand how great it is to toss some ingredients in a machine, wander off, and end up with food. But most of the recipes I read say that searing the meat first in a separate pan makes the food so much better (agreed), so would I be saving that much time, or just making something essentially further in advance?
Help me, I'm serious. I use my Le Creuset ALL THE TIME for slow-cooked stuff, so it seems like 1. this could be right up my alley OR 2. I've already got this method on lockdown, so why add something else to my already-crowded kitchen?
I need this to be a group decision because I think you can tell me things. FIRST, would you like some new slow-cooker recipes? SECOND, am I missing something majorly attractive about these things?
Overall, I'm fine without one, but I was fine without a smartphone before I had that too so....
Talk to me. Tell me what you know. PLEASE.
And, thank you.
