A slow cooker, otherwise known as a Crock-Pot, a trademark that is sometimes used generically in both the United States and Canada, Australia and New Zealand, is a countertop electrical cooking appliance that is used for simmering, which requires maintaining a relatively low temperature (compared to other cooking methods such as baking, boiling, and frying). The slow cooker allows for unattended cooking for many hours of pot roast, stews, soups, boiled dinners and other suitable dishes, including dips, desserts and beverages. Slow cookers are especially useful for busy cooks, that work during the day.
The potato is a starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial nightshade family. In the Andes, where the potato is indigenous there are some other closely related cultivated potato species. Potatoes were introduced outside the Andes region approximately four centuries ago, and have since become an important part of much of the world's food supply. Potatoes are the world's fourth largest food crop, followed by maize, wheat, and rice. Potatoes are often classified as high on the glycemic index and are often excluded from the diets of individuals trying to follow a low GI diet. The GI of potatoes can vary considerably depending on type, preparation methods, whether they are eaten hot or cold.
