A Coleman propane crock pot cooks hotter than most at home slow cookers, but it can cook anything that the standard models do, with adjustments to standard cooking times. Most users' reviews found that the average cooking time was significantly shorter for many items than the conventional crock pot.
Portability and convenience were the benefits noted most often, with the ability to cook a wide variety of foods in locations that did not have an electrical outlet being a considerable factor. Adjustable temperatures allow the unit to cook, steam, warm and serve from one device. Most reviewers considered it perfect for stews, soups and chili.
