I have been carting a small crock pot around the country for years. Love it! My only problem is that I was using it in motels and housekeeping kept unplugging it. I have a small 1.5 liter pressure cooker too comes in handy.

Cutting recipes down is pretty easy with a bit of practice. Just half or 1/3 the ones for a 4 or 6 quart pot, close enough.

I bought the blue-tooth compatible Instant Pot. I loved my older Instant Pot and used it quite often. I neglected to read the fine print. My Ipad, 2nd generation, is too old to sync. It's still a great multi-cooker.

That's great. A slow cooker with bluetooth. HUH? I've never had much need for my kitchen appliances calling me before. It's really quite strange...

I use a small roadpro crockpot that I picked up from some truck-stop years ago. It plugs into a 12Volt outlet so it's perfect for shore power or dry-camping. I have never taken a picture of mine but I found one online. This is the cooker that I use; no bluetooth.

Yes. The new one enables you to pull up recipes on the Instant Pot site with your blue tooth device and send it to the cooker, after you load it with the ingredients, of course. You can delay start, etc. Not buying a new iPad just to use that function. I will wait until this one dies.

That is carrying connectivity just a little bit too far.

BOONDOCKERS/ROCKDOCKERS crock pot.

I am most times miles/hours from the nearest outlet and using the generator is not efficient. I use a glass or corning dish with lid, set the propane oven to 175* to 180*, then go off on a days exploring, fishing, or whatever. When I return supper is ready and the trailer is warm with good food smells. Works best for me in cooler weather. Propane usage is surprisingly low. Doesn't seem to take much to maintain that low temperature.

New Lucy is now equipped with her very own trailer sized slow cooker. We are not much in the cooking area. We are confirmed microwavers. The one exception is the making of what we call boiled streak. Boiled steak is made by throwing a hunk of low priced cow in a slow cooker for about eight hours, and, voila!, we have a great boiled steak.

We have a couple of larger (4 and 5 quart) slow cookers. These are a little too much for our trailer cooking needs and for Lucy's counter top.

We shopped around on-line and found a 1.5 quart slow cooker for Lucy. This seems to be just the right size for both using and storing in an Airstream.

We have been trying it out for the last couple days. We have already done a one pound boiled steak, and it came out great! Today were are trying boiled pig, and cooking a hunk of pork.

My first introduction to slow cookers was equally simple. Canned cream of mushroom soup and chicken pieces, cooked until the meat fell off the bones. That was before you could buy boneless and skinless chicken in the supermarket. These days it's even easier; no fishing the bones out after it's done cooking.

My favorite slow cooker meal is BBQ Pork Butt. So simple to make, approx. 3 Lb pork roast, cut in half, 1.5 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce. Put in slow cooker and cook on slow for 6 hours. Remove and pull one piece for instant gratification. Let the other piece cool in the freezer for a couple hours. Vacuum seal and freeze for another day.

Boneless skinless chicken breasts covered in salsa (I prefer verde) cooked on low for a few hours, shred once cooked and mixed back into the sauce, let sit for 15 more mins on low while prepping taco supplies. Heat tortillas, make tacos, enjoy. Also works with bbq sauce for bbq chicken sandwiches.

I like the addition of the pickles, makes a sort of sourbrot with a kick.
