There are a few slow cooker apps out there and zero, count them, zero are free (at least as far as I can tell). They range in price from $0.99 to $3.99.
While I haven’t decided if they’re worth the cost when I can search online for thousands of slow cooker recipes—with helpful user comments/suggestions—at my fingertips, I will outline them below so you can decide for yourself if you’d like any of them.
Here are two slow cooker apps that caught my eye
Crock Pot App
This looks quite cool but although I can find the Crock-Pot iPhone Application web page, I can’t locate it in the app store.
Regardless of if it costs money or not, at first sight I thought the slow cooker app was interesting because Crock-Pot is nearly synonymous with slow cooker so I assume they’d have the best recipes.
Art of the Slow Cooker App
This book, Art of the Slow Cooker: 80 Exciting New Recipes caught my eye when I started researching slow cooking so when I saw the app, of course I took note again. I read there are only 30 recipes on the app so I’m not going to purchase it just to test it out. But it did catch my eye. I like the title, I like the cover.
While I’m very sorry I can’t recommend any slow cooker apps here are my top three cooking apps, where you can find slow cooker recipes.
- I love the All Recipes dot Com Dinner Spinner. You have quick access to tons of recipes and if you’re bored, you can spin the Dish Type, Ingredients, and Ready In (time) categories. It really is fun, although like I’ve said before not super practical.
- Food Network Canada. I don’t actually use this app too much, but I like it. It always recommends a handful of recipes based on season or whatever and I like to check them out. Plus you can filter search by all kinds of really great methods including by Occasion, TV Shows, and Hosts. Handy! I mean, if I had the Food Network it would be handy.
- Canadian Living. I find I use the Canadian Living website more than the app, but it’s a nice app too. They have recipes of the day, which is great for new ideas, and they also post their blogs in this app, so it’s not only cooking but all sorts of stuff like crafting and other health and wellness articles.
Hope this list is useful! Did I miss anything? Have you found any awesome slow cooker apps? Please do tell!
One more thing. I think you’ll enjoy my free resource library. This is where I keep my files, downloads, ebooks, worksheets and whatever else I manage to create. I love sharing what I learn and want to keep adding to this library so it becomes a wealth of helpful goodness.
