This is great for the summer. I even plug in the slow cooker outside on the deck to avoid heating up the house.
I don't even wrap my potatoes in foil. I put 1/2 cup of water in the bottom and they some out so moist and tender and I am saving money by not using the foil.
They suggested using a crock pot in the summer to keep your house cooler..... if you really want to keep it cooler, put the crock pot outside on the porch or deck, so it isn't heating up your house!
roll some alum foil in to balls and place them in the bottom of your crock pot before you put the potatoes in, it will keep the potatoes off the bottom so no burning:-)
yeah, can we get some feedback on how to keep them from burning on the bottom? Otherwise, I love this idea.
This may be a silly question but I have to ask it. When you put the potatoes wrapped in foil in the crockpot do you put in any water?
