Crock-Pot® Community Guidelines

Welcome to the Crock-Pot® Community !

Our vision for the Crock-Pot® Community is to provide a thriving place for food lovers to ask questions, share insights and connect over their favorite Crock-Pot recipes.

Our goal is to make the Crock-Pot® Community a positive experience for all members. As such, we would like to share these guidelines for the Crock-Pot® Community. We ask all of you to remember that not all members have the same level of cooking expertise or knowing what is or isn’t permitted to be posted in the community. Let’s always presume the best and ensure the discussion is always respectful.

Our hope is that this community continues to grow and add value to your life. If you wish to ‘Follow’ a post, use the Facebook feature ‘Turn on notifications’ in the upper right-hand corner of every post.
