Let's Hook Up®: Gatherings with Your Slow Cooker

  • Tips & How To's

Whether you're having your family home for the holidays or you're dying to show off a series of delectable dips to your friends, it may be wise to invest in the Crock-Pot® Hook Up®, a connecting entertainment system that allows you to link together several slow cookers to prepare a selection of dishes for your get-together. 

Instead of cluttering your kitchen with skillets, pots and pans that all require varying temperatures, instructions and ingredients, use your Crock-Pot® Hook Up® to make them all at once, providing an easy and effective way to both cook and serve your meals - not to mention ease the clean up process afterward.

Bake a Breakfast Buffet 
There are many different foods that make an ideal breakfast, including scrambled eggs, homemade potatoes and bacon. Usually this means you need to have several pans going - maybe even the oven - to make sure each dish is cooked properly and finished at the same time. By using several slow cookers, you can more easily prepare this meal with care, ensuring each item remains properly warmed and cooked to your liking. 

A Meal from Start to Finish
Crock-Pot® Hook Up® units can be used to cook all parts of the meal. When you're preparing your Thanksgiving meal, for example, you're likely making entrees, sides and desserts all at the same time. By using linking slow cookers, you can treat your guests to an organized buffet of autumnal dishes, placing appetizers and sides toward the beginning, entrees in the middle and desserts at the end. This process is perfect for meals of any size, as individual units can accommodate differing amounts of food. 

This process is especially useful if your guests have Hook Up® units of their own, as they can bring their own Hook Up® units to connect with the host buffet! Remember to keep the maximum six units connected to one outlet.

Tailgating Treats for All
As football season rages on, you're continuing to perfect your tailgating treats to show off to your friends. But just as your friends may not be able to agree on the same team, they are likely to have different tastes as well. Some may be crazy about that bacon bean dip you love, but your vegetarian friends may not be as pleased. Using your Crock-Pot® Hook Up® is great for preparing a series of dips or dishes to accommodate a diverse group of people.
