Frequently Asked Questions 

Should Vegetables Be Submerged In Crockpot?

Due to Crockpot’s tightly sealed lid, any liquid isn’t able to evaporate. Therefore, if you’re adopting a regular recipe for your Crockpot, it’s best to reduce the liquid by approximately a third. The liquid should just cover your vegetables.
