Frequently Asked Questions About What a Crock

What is What a Crock?

We are a family owned and operated food service company that specializes in making simple, gourmet meals for your crock pot. Our goal is to save busy families time and money with the wide variety of options we offer.

How Many People Does A Meal Feed?

Our meals are sold by the portion to make it more convenient for you. One portion is built to feed a single person with a hearty appetite. In some cases, one portion can feed two people with light appetites such as young children. Our portions have an average total weight of 1.5 lbs (including sauce).

Can I Use My Microwave To Heat Up A Meal?

No. We only partially cook our meals so that they are as fresh for you as possible. You are not simply reheating a frozen dinner, you are cooking it through for the first time. Microwaves will not cook the meat thoroughly enough to make it safe for you and your family to eat.

How Long Do I Cook My Meal?

There will be an instruction card in your bag, but any chicken or vegetarian meal should cook for 4-6 hours, any pork meal should cook for 6-8 hours, any beef meal should cook for 8-12 hours. All of our meals should be cooked on low. If you have questions when cooking, please call us and we will be happy to help. Cooking times for meals may vary.

What If I Only Want One Portion Of Something?

If you are only ordering one portion of a meal, we recommend that you have a smaller slow cooker to cook it in. The sauce or gravy is what cooks and protects the meal. A larger slow cooker may cause the sauce to spread too thin and leave a single portion vulnerable to burning. A 2 or 3 quart slow cooker is perfect for single portions.

I Just Ordered. When Will My Meals Arrive, And Do I Need To Be Home To Receive The Package?

The average order ships in 2 days. Depending on your state our meals are in transit from 1-3 days. Our orders are shipped in Styrofoam coolers with enough dry ice to keep everything frozen for about 12 hours after delivery (in normal weather conditions) so you don’t have to worry if you are not home when your meals arrive.

What Size Slow Cooker Should I Use?

1 Portion meals, soups and dips cook best in a 2 to 3 quart slow cooker.

2 Portions can cook in a 4 to 6 quart slow cooker. A 4 quart is the optimal size.

3 Portions can cook in a 4 to 7 quart slow cooker. A 5 quart is the optimal size.

4 Portions can cook in a 5 to 7 quart slow cooker A 6 quart is the optimal size.

5 Portions can cook in a 6 to 7 quart slow cooker. A 7 quart is the optimal size.
