Slow Cooker Tips & Tricks
Let’s just have a little talk about our slow cookers for a minute. . .
As most of you know, I’m a graduate of Culinary School, and one of the classes that’s required is Sanitation and Safety. During this class we had an eye-opening chat about slow cookers and how, if not careful, they can be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and pathogens. Here are some tips and tricks to help keep your food, you, and your family healthy!
- Preheat your crock pot just like you preheat your oven. Plug it in and turn it to the high setting to get it nice and hot from the start for cooking. After all, there is only one little probe heating the whole slow cooker!
- Add everything into the crock pot as warmed up as it can be. This is where you need to be cautious and make sure it is all hot and up to cooking temperature in 2-3 hours.
- If food stays between 41 degrees and 135 degrees for 4 hours, then it needs to be thrown out because the bacteria and pathogens have had much too much time to grow and a food borne illness is a likely result.
- If you add meat; be sure it is thawed and NEVER added frozen, if it’s beef or pork, make sure to brown it first.
- Add liquids hot: use HOT water or warm up any liquids in the microwave first and then add them into the crockpot already hot.
- Spray the ceramic insert with cooking spray to make clean up a snap! It’ll wipe out with no sticking!
Slow Cookers are wonderful things and if we take a couple of quick precautions to keep food safe while using them… they are even better! 🙂
