What Is a Wifi Crockpot?
Some might ask what is a wifi crockpot? or what is a smart crock-pot?
Well, the answer is that it is a slow cooker that is wifi enabled and can be controlled via an application (App) from your smartphone or other smart devices.
You use the application to change the cooking temperature, cooking times, change the cooker to the keep-warm mode. You can even turn it off altogether if you are delayed or for some reason cannot come home.

The Technology of This Crock-Pot Slow Cooker
Obviously, there is a lot of technology surrounding this slow cooker, but in this day and age technology is commonplace. So I thought the best way to explain how to use this technology with a slow cooker would be to break it down into parts. So here we go…
Setting Up Your Device
This part of the installation pretty much works the same and any other device that needs to be programmed. For example televisions, game consoles, home security. So if you follow the instructions provided you cannot really go wrong.
The Wemo Crock-Pot works the standard way (the same way you control any other appliance or security system) with any Android or Apple Devices, an application, Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G, or 5G networks…
If you require the Wemo Crockpot Manual you can obtain it by clicking here…
As with any other slow cooker, you still have to prepare the ingredients. After this, all you need to do is select your required temperature and the cooking time.
In conjunction with your app, you can monitor the cooking time while you are not around the slow cooker. Check the status of your meal by checking the cooking time left, check up on the temperatures. And lastly if for whatever reason you cannot return to your cooked meal turn it off.
Lets you adjust the cooking temperature and time throughout the day if you already know your serving time has changed from when you initially programmed the cooking time.
You can get notifications as to when the cooking time is complete or if the slow cooker turns off. Then you can alert the family that their dinner is ready for serving even if you are not there.
Benefits of This Crock-Pot Slow Cooker
The built-in cord storage is a huge bonus as most appliances have cords wrapped around the appliance itself it makes for very difficult storage of the whole appliance.
The fact that you can turn the slow cooker off remotely is a huge bonus because there are times when we get held up and just cannot get home.
Unfortunately, this Crock-Pot does not shop for ingredients or prepare them for cooking. But it does seem to do everything else to make sure you get the best possible meal when you are ready to serve.
To Finish – Crock-Pot Smart-Wifi Slow Cooker
Is the Crock-Pot SCCPWM600-V2 Wemo Smart Wifi-Enabled Slow Cooker, 6-Quart the best smart slow cooker?
My verdict is yes for the price of around $100.00 this slow cooker is the best smart slow cooker. We spend hundreds of dollars on gaming consoles and other appliances without flinching. So for around $100.00 for this new age smart technology it is not a lot of outlay.
