When it comes to whipping up a tasty home-cooked meal, unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with the culinary abilities of a five star chef.
In fact, I'm normally pretty proud of myself if I can manage to make simple things like pizza bagels without starting a fire in my kitchen (because yes, I've actually almost burned the house down making those damn things on more than one occasion).
Yep, cooking is actually pretty f*cking hard.
But luckily, there are kitchen gadgets out there like crock-pots that allow even the most unskilled chefs to make a decent meal.
Because let's face it, all you have to do is basically throw a bunch of things in a pot and let that slow cooker do the rest of the work for you.
Plus, the things you can make with one of these bad boys goes way beyond soup and pot roast.
From breakfast dishes and lunches to all sorts of dinners and even dessert, the crock-pot possibilities are pretty much endless.
