And so, whilst perusing different ways to make Corned Beef and Cabbage (St. Patty's is coming soon) on Pinterest, I came upon somewhat of an anomaly, i.e., Slow Cooker recipes vs. Crockpot recipes. It got me to wondering if there is a difference. Being retired with no real life, I went to Walmart to see for myself. I actually saw two young Mommys in yoga pants who looked hot, but that is a story for a different thread. Back in Appliances, a fairly decent looking Asian woman asked me if I saw any electric skillets on display. I'm sure she wanted to pick me up for sex, but I was on a mission and had no time for her. What I found out is that one item has a ceramic insert and the other doesn't. One has more settings than the other. Although I have the large size crockpot, the slow cooker appeared to have more volume. So, is there a difference? Can slow cooker recipes and crockpot recipes be interchanged? I don't like using a Dutch oven because it seems that I never get the vegetables right. The potatoes and the cabbage are either undercooked or mushy. I abhor mushy cabbage.
