Of all the kitchen gadgets designed to make a cook's life easier, the humble Crock-Pot truly delivers on its promise. Using a slow cooker means less fuss and less mess, not to mention less effort than many other cooking styles. Most meals don't require much more than dumping a bunch of ingredients into the pot and turning it on! Plus, it's super easy to find recipes that incorporate healthy ingredients to create family favorites. And there'll most likely be leftovers, too!

From soups to stews to roasts, there's seemingly nothing a Crock-Pot can't handle. (And there are plenty of vegetarian options, too.) Main courses, side dishes, even breakfasts and snacks are a cinch. Granted, cooking with a Crock-Pot means planning ahead a little bit. It's definitely not the tool to reach for on a last-minute kind of night. (That would be an Instant Pot!) The point is, there's a reason why busy moms have used these things for decades. With a little prep in the morning (or the night before), they're about as convenient as it gets!

Cooking for a family can be tough, which is why so many of us end up resorting to take-out or microwave meals. But with a Crock-Pot in the kitchen, healthy homemade meals can be an everyday occurrence!
