    I looked for a long time for a slow-cooker cookbook but was generally completely unimpressed. Either the recipes combined processed foods (and we avoid processed foods in our home) or they were more complex than I was looking for. I use a slow cooker to simplify my life. I want to toss all the ingredients in the pot and come back hours later to dinner. Other cookbooks would have 3 or more steps, often, involving multiple dishes (creating lots of dirty dishes).

I want to toss all the ingredients in the pot and come back hours later to dinner. Other cookbooks would have 3 or more steps, often, involving multiple dishes (creating lots of dirty dishes). I wanted simple, healthy, and tasty with lots of variety. This cookbook is by far the best match for my criteria. Add to that the fact that there is a wonderful variety of dishes from various cuisines using interesting but not inaccessible ingredients. Someone remarked that it is all soups. Certainly there are a lot of soups, stews and this sort of thing, but there are so many other possibilities - sauces, desserts, breads, lots of other options. Also, we do not use alcohol in our home. I get tired of reading recipes that require alcohol and offer no alternatives. For the most part when a recipe calls for some kind of alcoholic beverage, it offers alternatives. What's more, the recipes should be easily adaptable if you prefer, for example, bison over beef. I am going to love using this book and have already bookmarked a short list of about 20 recipes (but there are at least 100 others I'm dying to try.

    I really enjoy using this cookbook! So much variety, simple, easy to make recipes. I love that the recipes all have nutritional information. I have probably tried 30 of the recipes and will make most of them again. It’s hard to find a slow cooker cookbook without use of processed foods and a healthier set of recipes. Most of the recipes use a smaller 3.5 to 4 quart crockpot which is ideal for 4 servings. The correct size pot makes a big difference in how the dish comes out.

    Lots of good recipes Although not enough, what I call "every day" meals included. I don't want to buy a bunch of expensive spices to get only use 1/2 tsp of each in a recipe, not knowing if I'll ever make it again.

    First....I can't believe all the 5 star ratings on this cookbook! I'm not sure if the 3 star rating I've given is fair as I've only used it once, but I most definitely would not be giving it a five even if I'd tried more! I use a slow cooker at least twice a week so am always looking for recipes. While this book may have 1001 (and I doubt that) recipes and sixteen chapters, twelve of those chapters are devoted to soups and stews.

While this book may have 1001 (and I doubt that) recipes and sixteen chapters, twelve of those chapters are devoted to soups and stews. Unfortunately I do not make soups often as my family doesn't really care for them. We do, however like to have chili occasionally, so I decided to try the recipe for Chili Con Carne. I won't be making it again. I've never had such a "failure" as a meal in all my years of cooking (and that includes when I was just learning as a young girl). Absolutely awful, I didn't even bother saving what was left (and that was just about all of it). Thank goodness I got the book for free. Sorry, but this was a total failure and I doubt I'll try any other recipes.

    1,001 Best Slow-Cooker Recipes: The Only Slow-Cooker Cookbook You'll Ever Need I am one of those that is skeptical about cooking in the crock pot unless it's a stew. I can't imagine who will eat it all seeing as there are just 2 of us. The possibilities are just endless with this cookbook. Love this book for the fact it lists the nutritional information for EVERY recipe-nice we won't have to guess what's good for our bodies. Sad part is there are no pictures to accompany the recipes.

    Where's that Crockpot Again? I have been using a crockpot for years. I must admit mine doesn't get the use it used to. However, this cookbook has changed my mind. There are some recipes here that will make me pull it out again. The beverages and appetizers alone are wonderful, but add the soups, main dishes, and DESSERTS and this is a stand out. I will keep this and get my crockpot out again!

    Disclaimer: I'm not the greatest cook. I start off telling you that so you'll understand I need a cookbook and/or recipes that are easy, and what is easier than a slow cooked meal? I'll tell you- NEARLY ANYTHING NOT IN THIS BOOK. These recipes aren't realistic- they call for things you won't have in your pantry or fridge, and you'll have to make an unexpected grocery trip. Most of these require more work than your average stove top, elaborate meals. Skip this one!

    1,001 Best Slow-Cooker Recipes: The Only Slow-Cooker Cookbook You'll Ever Need by Sue Spitler has a wide variety of recipes to use in my slow-cooker. I like cooking where you put everything in the pot in the morning and by the time you are ready to eat in the evening, it is ready to serve, plus with the kids gone we freeze the leftovers for other days when we are too busy to cook.

    I've tried a couple of recipes from this book and they are good. I was proud to serve beef stew recipes on our dinner table, and there's 999 more recipes waiting for me to try! With this book and my slow cooker, meal planning and preparation becomes a lot easier.

    Lots of soups and stews and not much else. I wouldn't be so generous as to say there are 1,001 recipes either. A lot of them are pretty much the same with only one or two differences. Good for finding a few good recipes, but definitely not a treasure trove.

    This book was free so I tried it. The only thing I can say is this book is not for my family. Very little recipes would we use.

    Some Good Recipes This title has some good recipes I may want to try. Some are fairly simple and should not be difficult.

    ok, but I would only use a few of these recipes. Did not like it enough to want to add it to my shelf

    Great free find with some interesting recipes I'll have to try. Has a lot of similar recipes but each have their twist, like Texas and vegetarian chilis.

    eh. Had most of the recipes already. Thought it would be cool on my Kindle Fire - but not used to using it in the kitchen! HA!
