Tender Feelings For My Ancient Slow Cooker

Posted on: February 27th, 2020 by

Yes, I eschew the Instant Pot for my no-tech slow cooker, gifted to me by a dear friend. Does this actually makes me a Luddite in the true sense of the word? Lets see:

My vintage slow cooker.

Hello, gorgeous.

  • one of a group of early 19th century English workmen destroying laborsaving machinery as a protest
  • broadly one who is opposed to, especially technological, change

Well, spoiler alert, I am not a 19th century worker so that’s out even before the definition ends. But am I opposed to time-saving technological change in cooking appliances? Well, I guess I am. (Though electricity is technology, but you know what I’m getting at.) So I was chuffed to write an ode to my 1970s-era slow cooker for Tenderly. Have a read:

An Old-Fashioned Slow Cooker Is the Perfect Kitchen Appliance

BTW, Tenderly is Friendly, radical, vegan. I highly recommend becoming a reader and subscriber. As a segue, here are a couple vegan recipes. One is for mushroom jerky, The other is for a parsnip pie. Ok, have a bonus: black bean and pepita balls.

Are My Slow Cooker Feelings Luddite-esque? Go deeper into the word:
