If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Ninja cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker.
It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.
I also really like this crockpot as well. I use this all the time and it’s great.
My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.
I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing! There are several others on sale here.
Another favorite is this programmable crock pot for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!
I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.

It is not necessary to brown the roast prior to cooking. However, some people prefer this texture so you can certainly do this if you would like.
This is another reason I love my Ninja cooker because you can brown the meat in the crock pot and not dirty up a bunch of pans. It makes it so easy.

The longer meat cooks in the crock pot the more tender it becomes. If the meat is tough, you probably need to cook it longer.
