As we wrap up our coverage of soups on The Kitchn, we thought we'd share some of our best reviewed slow cookers and dutch ovens. While both make for great ways to create soups and stews, there are certain benefits that are unique to the different cooking processes offered in each.
With a dutch oven, you are able to place the system directly on the stovetop, making it ideal for browning meats before beginning cooking foods at low temperatures. Meanwhile, the slow cooker is really all about convenience. With this "long-and-low" method of cooking, you simply plug-in and combine ingredients to easily prepare delishous meals.
