Why Make Dips in the Slow Cooker?

Hot gooey dips make the best group appetizers. Why should you consider making yours in a slow cooker instead of on the stove or in the oven?

Why make dips in the slow cooker?

There are many reasons to love slow cookers, but today I am going to focus solely on making dips in slow cookers. Pizza dip, spinach and artichoke, you name it!

Ease of Cooking

One of the greatest advantages of a slow cooker is how fast it is to get the recipe cooking. It usually only takes a few minutes of prep, a little bit of chopping, a little bit of slicing, and then you are done and the slow cooker takes over.

Hands Off!

I usually make dips for parties such as the Super Bowl or even for a birthday. When I’m running around the house setting up I love that I can rely on my slow cooker to make my dips without me constantly hovering. Plus it adds an amazing aroma throughout the entire house!

Keep it Warm

Not only can you cook with a slow cooker, you can also serve out of it! Keeping the slow cooker on the “warm” setting keeps my hot dips hot.

If You Can’t Stand The Heat

In the Florida heat we avoid turning on our ovens as much as possible. That’s where a slow cooker comes in, its able to cook food without that added temperature in the kitchen.

It’s always entertaining when Lyndsay’s in the kitchen. She’s even been known to belt out Broadway show tunes while making dinner (a handy whisk as her microphone, of course). She currently writes for her personal blog, LyndsayPaige.com focusing on recipes based on literature. Lyndsay is also on the editorial team at The Cookful.
