Crock Pot

Just a plug for using a crock pot while cruising, etc.

They pull about 7 amps/hour on low and about 11 on high. I have not tried (as I have a large inverter), but I bet you could run it off of low in a portable inverter (I have not done the math). Still, you can drop in a chicken, roast, etc and leave it for some hours and come back to a great meal. Great for on the hook and off grid stuff. We did a chicken that fell of the bones over vacation and have done countless roasts.

Don't know CD - sounds like a bunch of crock to me. (g)

My wife used to use a crock pot when we both worked full time and the kids were in school - and it served it's purpose then. But to be honest, I didn't care much for it.

Roasts, whether chicken, pork or beef - should be ROASTED over or under flames . . . or at least electric coils - not stewed in an electric simmering pot. The flesh and veggies don't caramelize or brown in a crockpot - everything turns various shades of grey . . . not very savory.

I suppose some thing's are a compromise on a boat, and it's of course just my opinion, but we roasted in our propane oven many times while away from the grid. On a boat, we decided we wouldn't compromise, when it comes to food

as that child of two working parents, I just came back around to crock pots. I remember fondly the smell of the pots simmering away when I’d come home from school, and now own three different sizes.

My only concern is the inherent fire hazard of setting and forgetting (stolen from an infomercial) if you’re off the boat during the simmering.

Actually. I think Crock Pot is a brand name for a slow cooker. It is a pot made of glazed clay (crockery) with a low amperage electric heating element which heats to about 170 degrees F and is primarily used for soup, stew or chili, taking 6-8 hours to cook the food. It is a boon to working mothers, as they can make dinner before they go to work and come home to a hot meal! We have three different sizes and my wife uses them frequently.

Pete,
My comments were mostly tongue-in-cheek. CD's using "Roasting" to describe braising - or slow-cooking in a liquid over low heat. Roasting is using dry heat, just as grilling does - these are two different methods of cooking, with different results and textures.

I enjoyed the flavors too - and we've done the same thing with an enameled cast iron dutch oven, inside our gas oven. The advantage of that is you can brown the meat first on the cooktop, then place the whole pot in the oven for slow cooking. Got rid of the crock pot years ago.

Another safety hazard on the boat -- when you heel over in a gust of wind and the darn thing lands upside down on the floor---Dinner all over the rug! (yes, I have rugs on the floor -- it keeps the Admiral happy, and I'm sure you all have heard the statement "When Mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!")

So basically it's a cooker that cooks as fast as CD sails....I see.....

Oooh, can you plug it in from shore with one of those reeeeeally reeeeeally long big yellow cords? Then you wouldn't put so much wear and tear on your inverter.

Happy April Fools to you too, CD. And if this wasn't a joke, I'll email you the GPS coordinates of my top ten favorite lee shores ...
