Sure, the Instant Pot has been hogging the attention of the culinary world for a few years now, but lately, people are ditching their beloved appliance for something a bit more old school — the slow cooker. In fact, a rep for Pinterest told SheKnows that searches for easy slow cooker recipes spiked over 2506% during the Amazon Prime Day sale this year as people searched for ways to make the most out of their new purchase.
