Who isn’t looking for a way to make life easier and to provide good solid nutritional meals for your family? Is there a way that an iPhone app can help? Well, iCooking Slow Cooker, developed by Apps of All Nations, LLC, delivers. It provides you with recipes that will have your family saying, “Can you make that again!”.
iCooking Slow Cooker has fifty recipes that vary from main dishes to desserts. You can sort through them by looking at an alphabetical list of recipes, types of dishes (beef, pork, poultry, soups and deserts), favorites or recipes you added to the app. Once you select a recipe you can see the list of ingredients, preparation information and tap “options” and either add it as a favorite or send it to yourself (or a friend) via email. I like to send them to myself and print them out. Once the recipe is printed, I can check off ingredients as I add them.
You also can’t overlook the benefit of this particular method of cooking. You do prep work early in the day, clean up the kitchen and then dinner seems to appear like magic. The cleanup is easy too. iCooking Slow Cooker offers you a lot – you have your ingredient list on hand when you are at the grocery store, and you have the ability to make a dish and then share it with your friends via email. iCooking Slow Cooker is also a handy app to have when planning dinners with your friends. You can look through the app, decide who is bringing what and quickly organize a dinner. It’s also a great way to organize your recipes. You can add your slow cooker recipes to this app and your other recipes to one of the 14+ other apps by this developer.
It wasn’t easy to select just one recipe to try before I wrote this review. After waffling between Sweet and Sour Pork and Pork Stew, I went for the stew. The meat was so tender and flavorful. We had so much food we had it for dinner the next night and it was just as good (maybe even better.) The stew is just one of many intriguing recipes in iCooking Slow Cooker. The next dish I have to try is Apple Crumble. I’ve used a slow cooker for years and had no idea that I could create desserts.
It is hard to find an app that couldn’t be improved and I do have a few small suggestions. The first would be a adding a search feature. The categories do help organize the data, so this isn’t critical – but it would be a great addition. It would also be nice to share the recipes I add with my friends and family who also have the app.
iCooking Slow Cooker is reasonably priced (99 cents) and offers you new dishes to try, an ingredient list that is always ready and easy to follow instructions. With appeal to new cooks, experienced chefs looking for new recipes, and busy mothers alike – iCooking Slow Cooker is definitely worth a try.
iCooking Slow Cooker is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch and requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later.
