Reviews

It only makes sense that The Slow Cooker Life would offer you some helpful kitchen gadget reviews!

I shop online for just about everything other than groceries. And to be honest, recently I have been considering looking into grocery pickup programs to alleviate the time spent trying to navigate the busy aisles with a huge cart and then waiting in line at the register for another 15 minutes

I digress. A lot. Anyway, shopping online requires a lot of research. Buying something sight-unseen can be nerve-racking. We work hard for our money and we want to make sure that those monies are getting well spent. What is more frustrating than finally receiving that super cute hoodie in the mail that you ordered 10 business days ago (which usually equates to like 3 months real time in our heads because we are so busy and impatient), putting it on for the first time, and realizing that the length was meant for someone who does not have a fully developed torso? Few things is the answer.

We have compiled some reviews here to help you along in that research phase of the online shopping experience. Here are some areas that our reviews try to cover to offer thorough information about the products.

The nitty gritty.

What does THAT do? We’re gonna tell you. Our reviews will provide product descriptions that will take some guess work out of what your are seeing in those fuzzy product pictures that never seem to quite do the product justice.

No malarkey here.

The Slow Cooker Life will provide you with helpful pros AND unbiased cons on products to ensure that you are receiving well-rounded reviews on products.

$$$

To some of us, this is the most important part of the shopping process. Price checking. How much something costs greatly impacts whether we are going to buy it or not. Regardless of how much we want something, whether we have the funds to purchase it matters most. Our reviews will supply you with multiple pricing options for each product.

Warranty information

Warranty and guarantee information are big selling points too. Particularly when you are buying more expensive items, such as kitchen gadgets and appliances, that have the potential of breaking. We will let you know whether we find any warranty information surrounding the spotlighted products.

I wonder if that will fit…

It’s hard to measure things that you are just reading about online. But I don’t want to buy that standing mixer if it isn’t going to fit on my counter top anywhere. Also, is that picture showing that is a super dark navy blue or black? I just cannot tell.

Product specifications play a huge part in my online shopping experiences. I like to look up the sizes of items, what they are made out of, etc. to give me an idea of how big it is and how long it will last, and if it will match the rest of your kitchen stuff. And matching kitchen gadgets matters. It makes your kitchen prettier 😉

Seriously though, I am not here to tell you if I think you should buy something. I am just giving you the necessary information to allow you to make that decision for yourself. The more information I can give you, the better!

What is your two cents?

I strongly encourage you to offer any more information you have about a product in the comments section of the product review.

Have you used it yourself? What do you like about it? What do you not like about it? Do you recommend it or should we keep shopping around? Do you have a specific product that you would recommend that we look into instead?

Recipes

Let’s get ready to recipes! I will be sharing my fails and my successes with you here. There is no shame in my game! No one is perfect! Plus, failed attempts always make for great stories.

Traditional gets boring.

I like to try “alternatives” a lot in my kitchen. Like when I use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Have some alternatives? I’d love to hear them! Tell me about them in the comments sections of the recipes they pertain to 🙂

I want everyone to learn something from my site.

And I hope that I have made it easy to do that.

Feel free to sharesies.

Feel free to share some of your own recipes in the comments sections. Don’t want to share your secrets? I don’t blame you! But if you made one of mine, let me know how it went!

Give yourself time to indulge in life.

Too much time is spent doing too many other things these days to always have the extra time to commit to cooking. Slow cookers fix that issue. The set it and forget it feature of these appliances alleviate the painful waiting part of cooking.

Remember to have fun.
