body { font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.6em; } .aplus { min-width: inherit; } Volume 2 brings more slow cooker recipes for your family to enjoy. The test cooks at America's Test Kitchen have worked their magic again, developing and perfecting an all-new collection of 200 slow-cooker recipes. With this volume, we looked at this must-have appliance in new ways to truly maximize its potential. You'll learn how to make a host of dishes like Garlicky Shrimp, Chicken Soft Tacos, and Flourless Chocolate Cake--recipes you'd never expect to see coming out of a slow cooker. The moist heat of the slow cooker is tailor-made to serve up flavorful stews, chilis, and braises (and don't worry--we've included a good number of these), but with our smart strategies and clever ingredient selections, we were also able to pull off spice-rubbed roast chicken, ziti with meaty ragu, rare roast beef, poached salmon and even cheesecake.

A refreshing update to typical slow cooker recipes

5.0 out of 5.0 by badge on September 11, 2013
I got this book two days ago and have already tried two recipes,the Garlicky Poached Shrimp and the Fudgie Brownie Wedges. Both recipes were amazing and highlight the fact that this cookbook has much more than the typical set-and-forget braises you find in most slow cooker recipes (though there are still plenty to satisfy). I was pleased by the number of soups which look bright and fresh.I also appreciate that America's Test Kitchen listened to the complaints from volume 1. Volume 1 recipes required a good deal of prep and took much of the convenience out of using a slow cooker. As the "easy prep" volume, all recipes require 15 minutes or less of preparation. This is very convenient and means I will be cooking from this cookbook in years to come.Given the choice between volume 1 and 2 I would pick volume 2. It is the unequivocal winner. You will learn to use your slow cooker in creative ways and get the convenience of a slow cooker mixed with ATK's near perfect recipes.Update (11/16/2013): Since purchasing this book, I have made 17 of the recipes contained in the book. Of those recipes only one was a recipe I will not be making again (Tortellini with Creamy Wild Mushroom Sauce). The rest of the recipes are fantastic. These recipes came from various sections including desserts, recipes for two, casseroles, and appetizers.In response to some comments which have criticized the use of convenience products and the nutrition of some recipes, please understand that this book focuses first on flavor and second on convenience. This book is balanced in its use of convenience products (only when necessary to prevent problems that plague slow cooking) and contains a fair balance of healthy and unhealthy recipes. Though many of these recipes stray from the typical 8-10 hour stews and use shorter cooking times (3-6 hours in some cases) also note that these recipes are designed for modern slow cookers which are often programmable.In general, I stick by my five star review. This cookbook covers a much broader range of recipe styles than most and will change the way you think about slow cooking. In this book you will find everything from comfort food to vegetarian to cooking-for-two to dessert.Here are some of the five star recipes I have tried:Chicken MoleAsian Chicken Lettuce WrapsFarmhouse Chicken CasseroleThanksgiving Turkey Pot PieQuinoa and Vegetable StewHearty Vegetarian ChileWhite Chocolate and Cherry Bread Pudding
My Slow Cooker Bible

5.0 out of 5.0 by David C. Howell on April 30, 2015
As the title suggests, this is the second volume in this series. The first volume quickly became my slow cooker bible. What especially like about both volumes is that the folks at America's Test Kitchens don't simply roll out the usual slow cooker fare but instead experiment to develop slow cooker versions of recipes one would never have associated this method of cooking. At the beginning of each recipe, the writers explain what they were attempting to accomplish, what they did along the way, and why they think they were successful. The first volume, in particular, does contain a number of traditional "comfort food" recipes for beef stew and the like, but both volumes are filled with diverse and very contemporary options such as "Fig-Balsamic Glazed Chicken Drumsticks" or "Poached Salmon with Grapefruit and Basis Relish." This second volume also includes an extensive section on "Cooking for Two." The second volume is indeed the "Easy-Prep Edition" of the two. Those whose lives require a "dump and cook" approach to slow cooking should consider purchasing only volume 2. But Volume I has some real winners. A recipe for slow cooker turkey breast produced the best gravy I've ever been able to create; just dump the mixture from the cooker through a strainer into a sauce pan, skim off the fat, add a little water and cornstarch, and you're done, with plenty left over to freeze for later use. Real winners, both!
Jury's still out--had a bad experience

3.0 out of 5.0 by Bhamster on June 10, 2019
Purchased this because so many recipes looked great. But the first recipe I tried (roast with mushroom sauce) made me end up throwing out an $18 roast. It called for a cut that our butcher hadn't heard of, so he suggested one that they had. Wasn't until I started to prepare that I noticed it said to cook for 2 hours on low. I've never heard of ANY roast that could be cooked for 2 hours on low. Without showing a photo of what this cut of meat looks like, I can only guess that it's a very flat cut, whereas what I had was a rolled and tied roast.And now, even if I can find that particular cut of meat, I still probably wouldn't make it as it called for condensed French onion soup. I didn't like the smell of it combined with tomato paste and would want to make my own sauce from scratch--which pretty much means that this recipe is useless. Have been so discouraged over trying to save that roast that I haven't wanted to try anything else just yet.
Awful recipes, many of which rely heavily on processed food

1.0 out of 5.0 by Ispahan on July 24, 2017
I don't like this book and I am surprised ATK would publish it. It is just a re-hash of classic church lady slow cooker mushy slop recipes, many of which rely heavily on canned/processed/frozen foods. Eeewww. That said, I LOVE Volume 1 of this series because it contains REAL recipes which turn out to be very tasty. If you don't mind a few extra minutes of prep work (it's really nothing that complicated) and enjoy eating real food, then skip this one and purchase the original Slow Cooker Revolution.
An excellent edition

5.0 out of 5.0 by L. Evans on February 18, 2019
This is by far one of the best slow cooker cookbooks I have seen. The simple preps and delicious variety of recipes makes this a winner. The brief details/tips at the beginning of each recipe are a great touch. They explain why each recipe works. I have made several recipes (taco dip, lentil soup, Asian chicken noodle soup, Italian white bean stew) and each one was delicious and exactly as the book said it would be. I highly recommend this cookbook to both beginners and seasoned home cooks who enjoy the slow cooker way of feeding your loved ones.
