Slow cookers are having a comeback. With good reason. They are friends on a day of running errands. They allow easy entertaining with no last-minute preparation. They are miracles for potluck meals, whether in your home or someone else’s. And vegetarians won’t find a better way to work with dried beans.     Slow cookers are gentle with the food budget—less expensive ingredients flourish in their slow, moist heat.     Fix-It and Forget-It offers more than 800 recipes—the whole range of recipes slow cookers do well. Tips and Hints are dropped in throughout, urging one additional small step for lots of extra flavor, offering ways to make your cooker a complementary appliance, explaining seasoning to maximum effect.     Bring an element of simplicity—and quality—to your pressured life! Let your slow cooker work for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ugh. June 4 2004
Format:Plastic Comb
I don't recommend this book at all. So many of the recipies sound unappetizing, are high in fat, and call for a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup.
This cookbook doesn't promise to deliver much, and it lives up to this promise. First, there's a disclaimer that the recipies haven't been kitchen tested by the editors. Second, it promises numerous recipies that vary by only one ingredient. How many chili and baked beans recipies do you really need? Well, this book has over 30 for chili and almost 60 for baked beans. The rest of the book is stews and other dishes that would go perfectly with a side of Wonder Bread, like this sample recipie:
Ham Bar-B-Que
1 lb boiled ham
1 cup of cola
1 cup of ketchup
Cook on low 8 hrs.
What kind of cookbook is this?
Of course, not all the recipies are this poor, but only 1 of the dozen or so dishes I've tried is worth making again. If you're looking for a good slow-cooker recipie book, try Betty Crocker.

By L.M.W.
Format:Plastic Comb
Crock pot cooking is simple, and this cookbook follows that guideline. I like how the book is organized, and the pages are fun and easy-to-read. However, I was a bit disappointed at how many recipes were repeated. There are SO MANY recipes for pot roast, chili, beans, etc., and all of these recipes are incredibly similar. There are a few worthwhile recipes that I use over and over; however, there are better crock pot cookbooks out there. In addition, if you're looking for healthy foods or vegetarian-friendly recipes, skip this one. However, if you just need some quick, easy-to-use crock pot recipes, and don't mind wading through the duplicates, this one may be for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and easy recipes June 19 2005
Format:Plastic Comb
I found this book a great find. It has a wonderful recipe for whole wheat bread done in your slow cooker; how about a time saver.
The recipes are listed by people who have submitted them, so there are some variations on the same recipe. I welcome this; the variations help people who have allergies or when you are missing an ingredient.
This book would make a great wedding present.

I have other cookbooks for the crockpot, but none as good as the Fix-It and Forget-it cookbooks. The recipies are simple, easy to use and without the esoteric ingredients.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Unhealthy! June 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:Plastic Comb
I just browsed through this book while waiting for my mother in Walmart. I would not recommend it to anyone. Not only is it disorganized and repetitive as other reviewers have pointed out, but the steady reliance on beans and prepared soups and condiments promotes unhealthy eating habits. I found many of recipes to be purely disgusting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thought the book was the same as mine Dec 28 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought these books for a gift thinking they were the same as the one I own - they are not. Revised means the book has been cut in half so I was disappointed after these individuals had liked my book so much and that was what I thought I would be receiving for them. Too bad oh well.
