What Size Slow Cooker Should I Get
If you are in the market for a slow cooker, this might help you to find a slow cooker that fits what you are needing. I personally own two slow cookers. We are a slow cooker lover in our home. Currently, we have two appetizers going for the big game day party later!
Cooking for One to Two People – Reach for A 3-Quart Slow Cooker
A 3-Quart Slow Cooker is a good size for a person or two. You can fit most recipes in it, besides, say a whole chicken or roast. But you can whip up small batches of soup, chicken or beef recipes, etc.
This is great if you also like serving dips and such. A 3 quart is a great size for that as well. If you want to cook roasts or whole chickens, reach for a larger slow cooker.
Cooking for Four Or More – Buy a 5 Quart Slow Cooker
So if you have around 4-5 people you are cooking for a 5 quart is really nice. I personally own a 4-quart and it struggles to fit a whole chicken in it. I have to make sure I buy a really small chicken to jam it in. A 5 quart is a nice size to make a large batch of soup, fit a big roast, chicken and more inside.
Cooking for A Crowd – Buy A 6 Quart or Larger
Double up soup recipes and then freeze half for meal prepping, or make a ton of chicken to shred and freeze for meals coming up later down the month. You will find a really large slow cooker will ensure you have the cooking space you need.
