Q4: Was your #slowcooker handed down from your mom or do you have a brand new model? Favorite #slowcooker brands & why? #AllrecipesChat

@mdrai: @Allrecipes My first #slowcooker was a wedding gift 25 years ago! Now have a bigger one w/more controls than just off/on #AllrecipesChat

@appalachiankate: @Allrecipes I don't even know where our slow cooker came from!! #allrecipeschat

Q5: Is your #slowcooker just a winter appliance? When do you use this great kitchen tool the most? #AllrecipesChat

@kristinatweets: Q5: I use mine more in fall & winter. Though #slowcookers are good alternative to oven in summer, which makes my condo hot! #allrecipeschat

@licorous: @AR_Judith Mine is new but I caught sight of this decidedly vintage model last night at a Crock Off #allrecipeschat

@mdrai: @Allrecipes Q5: No! I use it year-round, but mostly during the school year. Summertime we tend to eat "lighter," "fresher." #AllrecipesChat

Q6: #Didyouknow? What are your #slowcooker tips that you'd like to pass on? #AllrecipesChat

@voraciousgirl: @JenEvison @Allrecipes My co-worker used liners in hers she brought to a potluck—makes for easy clean up. @appalaciankate. #allrecipeschat

@AR_Judith: #AllrecipesChat SC Tip: Keep the lid on or heat escapes! Add 15-25 mins more each time you lift the lid.
