The Pros and Cons of cooking with a Crock Pot in summer
Many people say that it's best to cook in a crock pot during the winter months and they are probably right because most people use their slow cookers only for soups and stews. A roast is also considered to be a winter dish but these meals are a convenience to those of us who work and like to come home to a cooked meal.
Well the crock pot slow cooker is your friend in summer as well. You can cook breakfasts and still have your roasts and the advantages are that your kitchen wont get hot from the oven and you can still walk away from the cooking and come back to a lovely cooked crock pot meal.
Parties are very popular when the weather warms up and if you are heading to a party, well that crock pot is wonderful at keeping things warm as long as you need it to without having to worry about food burning.

OK the disadvantages are that you don't often want to eat hot food in summer but with Spring and Fall you will get a lot of meals cooked in the crock pot with little preparation and a great convenience for you. In the middle of summer plan to use your cooker for keeping foods warm and making dips, cakes and desserts.
So you see the crock pot has many pros and only a few cons for cooking all year round so don't pack it away or push it to the back of the pantry just yet.
