Since I’ve made hundreds of freezer crockpot meals people often ask me which gadgets I use to prepare, freeze, and cook my meals. Here are my 11 favorites!
11 Freezer Crockpot Meal Essentials
- Crock-pot 6-Quart Programmable ‘Cook and Carry’ Slow Cooker (My all-time favorite slow cooker)
- Crock-Pot 2.5-Quart Slow Cooker (My favorite slow cooker when only cooking 1-3 servings at a time)
- Jokari Hands-Free Baggy Rack – Pack of 6 (A must-have for big freezer meal prep sessions)
- UberChef Premium Ultra Sharp Stainless Steel Vegetable Peeler (This is on my personal wish list)
- Vidalia Chop Wizard (A must-have for chopping onions)
- Ozeri Digital Kitchen Food Scale (Perfect for portioning out meat and produce that you buy in bulk)
- Victorinox Fibrox 8-Inch Chef’s Knife – plus the Victorinox Blade Safety Cover and AccuSharp Knife Sharpener (I LOVE this chopping knife)
- FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System (I bought this last month and I’m obsessed)
- Rolls of Vacuum Sealer Bags (So much cheaper than individual bags)
- Kenmore 13.8 cu. ft. Upright Freezer Model #22442 (I got a great deal at Sears)
- Avery Durable Rectangular Sticker Labels (Perfect for labeling finished meals – this size is compatible with the printable labels in my Crock’d and Meat-Free Slow Cooker Freezer Meals eCookbooks)
All of these freezer crockpot meal essentials would make great gift for yourself, your sister, or your grown children. I own all of them (except the vegetable-peeler, which is on my current wish list) and I can tell you that they are awesome. I use these items over and over again.
You don’t need anything fancy to make freezer crockpot meals, but I think these “essentials” make my time in the kitchen more fun, easy, and efficient.
