Defeats the object!,
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Slow Cooker Cookbook: Over 220 No-fuss Delicious One-pot Recipes for Relaxed Preparation (Hardcover)
This is a beautifully presented book with some excellent recipes BUT most of them involve quite a bit of initial preparation and then need ingredients added an hour or so before the end of the cooking time. For me this defeats the purpose of a slow cooker. If you want to pop some basic ingredients in the slow cooker before you go to work, returning to a hot ready-to-eat meal, this book is not for you!

'Defeats the object'?! Who says the only purpose of a slow-cooker is for 'preparing a meal before you go to work, so you can return to a ready-cooked meal at the end of the day'? Never understood this belief - surely no-one wants to chop up meat and fry onions before going to the office? This book shows the incredible versatility of the slow-cooker and I'd give it a 5-star rating.

Totally agree with the review.
The title of the book bears no resemblance to its contents.
