  1. Hi,
    I’m from Belgium and we don’t use crockpots, etc that much here.
    Maybe a stupid question, but what’s the difference between a crockpot, instant pot and slow cooker? I would like to buy one for easy meals on busy nights, but need to know what to buy. do you have any advice?

  2. A crock pot and slow cooker are the same thing. They cook food slowly and generally recipes take 6-8 hours in a crock pot. An instant pot is a pressure cooker. With pressure, it cooks food quickly. Generally recipes in a instant pot take 30-90 minutes. Thank you!

  3. Yes, I generally use frozen chicken breasts. I would cook for 9-10 hours until the chicken is shreddable. Thank you!
